Uni-Vibe Type Pedals: Where Do They Go On Your Board?
Published on 26 Feb 2016
Oh no! Dan is sick and unable to get out of bed! So we decided that rather than leave you show-less this week (nope, we had nothing in the can), Mick took a solo flight to talk about… Uni-Vibes. Or at least pedals based on the venerable UniVox Uni-Vibe, made famous by lots of players, not least Robin Trower and Jimi Hendrix.
THIS VIDEO IS NOT
– A comparison of Uni-Vibe clones and UV-alikes - we’ll do that another time
– A video on How To Sound Like Jimi Hendrix or Robin Trower - it’s a futile pursuit anyway, and way beyond our abilities!
THIS VIDEO IS
– A discussion about where you might want to put your Uni-Vibe pedal in your effects chain, and how it can react with your amp and overdrive/fuzz
– Er, that’s it.
