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.
