Where Classic UniVibe Meets Modern Digital

Your TC Electronic Viscous Vibe UniVibe pedal is a recreation of the original Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe from the late '60s, with a few modern tweaks and updates. The Viscous Vibe pedal utilizes an analog-dry-through feature to help keep your signal's original integrity unchanged, and dual input/output options allow for stereo or mono connectivity. Be sure to take advantage of the TonePrint setting, which allows you to download troves of different artists' effects settings with your smartphone directly into your guitar's pickup. This pedal marks the intersection of 21st-century digital processing and analog fidelity. "Viscous" means thick, chewy, and syrupy -- and that's just the character you get when you stomp the Viscous Vibe.

Warm and Alluring Chorus and Vibrato

Your TC Electronic Viscous Vibe UniVibe pedal comes with three settings at your disposal: Chorus, Vibrato, and TonePrint. Both chorus and vibrato settings sound wonderfully mesmerizing and precise. Having these two effects in one compact pedal leaves more room on your pedalboard for more hardware.

Where Digital Meets Analog

Digital processing doesn't mean you have to lose the warmth, clarity, and all-around naturalness of your input signal. Your Viscous Vibe UniVibe pedal captures the sound of the classic Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe with such incredible accuracy that you'll forget that you're utilizing a digital stompbox effects pedal at all.

Speed, Intensity, and Volume Controls

Controlling the flow of your settings couldn't be easier. Three simple dials give you everything you need to find the right amount of effect to color your signal. The speed control determines how quickly or slowly the effect oscillates, and the intensity control dials in the force of the effect. The volume control determines how much of the affected signal gets mixed in with the dry signal -- so you can retain the original character of your input signal, no matter how much vibrato you dial in.

The TonePrint Advantage

The TonePrint setting is what really sets the Viscous Vibe UniVibe pedal aside from the competition. Load up the TonePrint app on your smartphone and browse through scores of settings set by different artists to see just what this pedal is capable of. Simply hold your phone up to your guitar's pickup, select the setting, and watch it zap straight through to your pedal in seconds. When the green light in the middle flashes, the setting has been engaged. Use your speed, intensity, and volume controls to make any final tweaks if necessary.

TC Electronic Viscous Vibe UniVibe Pedal

The original Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe is a highly unique, complex and gorgeous-sounding analog unit, so when TC Electronic set out to recreate it digitally they knew it wasn't going to be easy. Through countless hours of meticulous side-by-side testing with the real thing and by pushing their insanely powerful DSP to its very limits, TC Electronic has been able to recreate this legendary effect to a tee. You'll get all the lush, syrupy vibe tones heard on countless tracks by Pink Floyd, Robin Trower and Jimi Hendrix and when you dive into that opening Machine Gun riff, we just know you'll be convinced that we nailed it.

The World of Rock Just Leveled Up!

TC Electronic poured their heart and soul into Viscous Vibe and there's no hiding that they're extremely proud of what they've achieved. Its dead-on recreations of the legendary gooey phase-y goodness and thick dramatic swirls of the original Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe unit already makes it epic, but then transferring it all to a high-quality compact design that won't break the bank - that just makes it epic beyond belief.

Vintage Vibes and Modern Strides

With Viscous Vibe you get the best of both worlds in a pedal that perfectly combines old analog warmth with modern-day functionality. With True Bypass for uncompromising tonal quality and stereo I/O for an ultra-wide sonic perspective, you get the perfect pedal for everybody who wants to implement classic-rock tones into their contemporary setup.

TonePrint

TC Electronic's proprietary TonePrint technology is just another upside to this already amazing pedal. So if you feel like making that stock vibe tone sound a little more like...well, you...then hook it up to the free TonePrint Editor and enter tone-tweaking heaven! On top of that you can also beam custom-made vivacious tones straight through your pickups and into the pedal via the free TonePrint App. The future is a pretty awesome place to be!

- Stereo in & out - for added flexibility to your set-up

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Greate Uni-Vibe sound"
Overall: I plugged my guitar into this pedal and there was that thick swirling sound I've loved since I first heard Robin Trower's "Bridge of Sighs" album many years ago. A few tweaks and I was able to get David Gilmour's tones from "Breathe" and "Have a Cigar". Best Uni-Vibe emulator I've tried, hands down.
Style of Music: Classic rock, blues, some metal
