Effectrobe Tube-Vibe is back and now features a Chorus/Vibrato switch 20-Feb-12
Effectrode tells us that, after being out of production for several months the Tube-Vibe is back. They say that the pedal now features a Chorus/Vibrato switch for classic Hendrix/Trower tones or true pitch detuning effects. Another new addition is the Classic/Smooth mode switch which the company says allows the pedal to create the deep throb of the original Uni-Vibe or a more subtle, ethereal chorus voicing.
The circuitry has also been modified to enable tube swapping. The pedal ships with a 12AU7 which gives up to 6dB of gain, however Effectrode tells us that a 12AX7 can be substituted for some serious boost and overdrive. Finished in a deep-purple burst powder coat, the Tube-Vibe is fitted with custom Omeg pots, Neutrik jack plugs and Carling footswitch.
An Effectrode PR person told us,
"The Tube-Vibe is a no compromise, innovative & original re-design of the classic Uni-Vibe. The pre-amp, mixer and phase-shifters sections are built on triode tubes operating at real amp plate voltages and it has a powerful L.F.O. that makes it possible to sculpt thick, swampy vibe tones at higher modulation rates through to textural & spacious chorus effects at slower rates. The tone is outrageously cool – it's absolutely the lushest, most psychedelic sounding guitar pedal there is! One of those devices that epitomise analog with it's unique, slightly blurry, liquid phase-chorused tone, impossible to simulate." Pricing and Availability:
