FORMULA B Vintage Vibe Mk2

Characterful Uni-Vibe-Inspired Pedal...

+ £5.82 Delivery | Free UK Delivery! - Royal Mail Tracked 24

The Formula B Vintage Vibe Mk2 is a superb homage to the original "Leslie-in-a-pedal", the Uni-Vibe. It's one of those memorable and highly addictive effects, up there with fuzz in terms of the character it endows songs with. 

Most famously used by Jimi Hendrix during his Woodstock set and live Band Of Gypsys album, as well as by David Gilmour on Pink Floyd tracks such as "Breathe", and Robin Trower on his Bridge Of Sighs album, the Uni-Vibe is all over late-1960s and early '70s rock.

Vintage Vibe Mk2 Components

The Formula B Vintage Vibe Mk2 sounds phenomenal with its fully discrete, analogue signal path. Made with original THT BC549 and 2Sc1815 transistors and quality photoresistors, plus an internal voltage doubler giving 18V of power from a 9V supply, this is capable of achieving seriously chewy, organic chorus and vibrato effects with plenty of headroom.

Vintage Vibe Mk2 Controls

Like the original, the Vintage Vibe Mk2 has a Volume control that allows you to achieve unity gain with the rest of your setup. You can even use it to boost your amp or other pedals - there's plenty of volume gain on tap.

Chorus/Vibrato toggle

With the toggle in the Chorus position you get the full Uni-Vibe experience. With the toggle in the Vibrato position you effectively remove the dry signal for a warbly, classic vibrato sound (vibrato differs slightly to tremolo in that it adjusts the pitch of a note rather than the amplitude of the signal).

Dual footswitch

The dual-footswitch design allows you to switch Speed setting on-the-fly. A typical setup would be to use a slower Speed 1 setting for rhythm playing then kick in a faster Speed 2 setting for solos or accenting certain passages.

Fantastic pedal!!

I spent an obsessive amount of time checking out univibe pedals. I'm so glad that I purchased this one from Boost. It is simply fantastic! If you don't believe me, then check out some video demos. Thanks Jim! + JG

Vintage Vibe Mk2

Having used a number of univibe clones over the years this one truly nails the sound for me, it comes with some clever additions in a pedal board friendly size and is excellent value for money. If you want the true sound of the original this pedal delivers.Special thanks to boost Guitar Pedals for putting this deal together so quickly..
