HOW IT LOOKS
Basically it’s identical to the Vibe Machine V1, but Grey and with an extra switch position.
HOW IT SOUNDS
The toggle switch gives you 3 sound modes:
- UP = Custom: You can adjust this sound with the trimpots on the left side.
- MIDDLE = Bright: ideal for smaller amps and for certain pedal chains
- DOWN = Original: the classic tone of the original Uni-Vibe with a typical dark flavour.
Before this, I tried the MXR Univibe JHM3 and the Fulltone Deja Vibe 2: I must say only the Vibe Machine made me feel that tridimensional sound I expected from a Uni-Vibe. Let’s remember that the Uni-Vibe was invented while trying to create a rotary speaker simulator!
Standard 9V DC center-negative plug (Boss type).
It has NO battery clip.
