If you’re looking to snag that Uni-Vibe style tone that became so well known in the hands of Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, and David Gilmour, then you’re going to love what Sabbadius Electronics has been cooking up. Sabbadius Electronics has just introduced their Tiny-Vibe 68 and Tiny-Vibe 69, the former of which has the same components and specifications as the 1968 Honey Uni-Vibe, and the latter of which has the same innards as the Shin-ei 1969 version.
The Tiny-Vibe 68 and Tiny-Vibe 69 are both hand-wired pedals that allow players to control the Volume and Intensity of their effects, alongside a Chorus/Vibrato switch to choose between the two. Then on the side is a Speed knob big enough to be adjusted by foot, and of course a bypass on/off footswitch. Plus there’s a Cancel switch to make both the pedal into a pure preamp.
So what’s the difference between the two? Well, the Tiny-Vibe 68 is modeled after the pedal that Jimi Hendrix used. It’s faster than the Tiny-Vibe 69 and the overall throb of the chorus and vibrato is generally more intense. Then there’s the Tiny-Vibe 69, which is modeled after the ones used by David Gilmour and Robin Trower. It’s a rounder and warmed sound with what Sabbadius Electronics calls a “chewier” chorus.
