This vintage 1960 Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe guitar effect pedal came through the shop a few years ago. I want to buy vintage guitar effects pedals like the Uni-Vibe, Roland Space Echo, Echoplex, fuzz pedals, and more. Contact me here to sell a vintage Uni-Vibe guitar effect pedal

The Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe is a classic phase shifter effect made famous by Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, and many more. The thick, rich "chorus" effect that it's famous for has become a staple in a classic rock guitarist's rig. While the Uni-Vibe's construction is closely copied by many companies, many players confirm that there's just nothing like the real thing.

This Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe has survived in fully functional condition. The only maintenance required were new filter caps and a quick potentiometer cleaning. The rest of the pedal is clean and untouched. The original expression pedal was lost and replaced with a newer pedal. These Uni-Vibes are known to be inconsistent in tone but let me assure you that this a good one. It likes to take a minute to warm up but once it does it's a joy to play. The doppler effect is strong and the classic tone is unmistakable.
