The World of Rock Just Leveled Up!
We’ve poured our heart and soul into Viscous Vibe and there’s no hiding that we’re extremely proud of what we’ve achieved. Its dead-on recreations of the legendary gooey phasey 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 uncompromised 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.
Our 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 our free TonePrint Editor and enter tone-tweaking heaven! On top of that you can also beam custom-made vibacious tones straight through your pickups and into the pedal via our free TonePrint App. The future is a pretty awesome place to be!

Analog-Dry-Through: Viscous Vibe always lets your original sound pass without ever converting it to digital, keeping every nuance in your tone intact with zero latency.
