MXR M68 Univibe Pedal

Plug in and prepare for rich and watery sounds to drip out of your amp. Set up the pedal to produce anything from slow warbles to faster, percussive pulses.
The MXR Uni-Vibe Chorus/Vibrato is one of the most iconic effects in music history. Since the late '60s, groundbreaking guitar players have used it to expand the tonal and textural palette of the electric guitar.

The MXR team has just remastered the classic effect for modern players. The MXR Chorus/Vibrato delivers the same chewy, Leslie-sounding goodness with a smaller footprint.

With its simple three-knob interface, you can dial up the iconic effect to your taste in short order. First, use the VIBE switch to select either Chorus Mode--dry signal mixed with pitch-shifted signal -- or Vibrato Mode -- only pitch-shifted signal. Then, use the LEVEL control to set the effect volume, the SPEED control to set the sweep rate, and the DEPTH control to set overall intensity.

The MXR Uni-Vibe Chorus/Vibrato comes in a Phase 90-sized housing--a fraction of the size and weight of the original Uni-Vibe pedal--and features true bypass switching. Perfect for taking this lush, swirly pedal out on the road.

"A Blast From The Past"

As a longtime fan of Jimi Hendrix, I've wanted a Uni-Vibe for many years. That epic warble as showcased so magnificently in 'Machine Gun' made it to me a must-have effect. Of course the original Uni-Vibe has long been out of production so many thanks to MXR for releasing this true gem of a pedal. In addition to Jimi, David Gilmour & Robin Trower also made great use of this distinctive effect. This new incarnation lacks the expression pedal the originals had to control the speed and depth but I run mine in conjunction with an MXR Vari-Phase pedal which does a fair approximation of the original units. I personally prefer to run the Uni-Vibe in the optional 'vibrato only' mode and let the Vari-Phase handle the phasing aspect. I have also experimented with using an MXR Phase 95 in place of the Vari-Phase with good results. The level, speed and depth controls offer a great variety of sounds though I prefer a subtle wobble (as opposed to the manic quivering you get at higher speed settings). Being an MXR, this pedal, like the other ten MXR pedals I own, is built to last. This isn't a pedal for modern rock sounds but for us older guys who started playing in the 1970's, this baby is a MUST HAVE item. (I haven't had to contact MXR/Dunlop since I've never once had a problem with one of their pedals so I gave them 5 Stars for 'Manufacturer Support' for such consistently good products.)
