AS SEEN ON "THAT PEDAL SHOW" Oct 13, 2023
THANK YOU THE DEMAND HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE - over 150 SOLD ALREADY....GREAT REVIEWS !
Over a year in the making.....VIDEO BELOW !!!
A True Uni-Vibe in a small footprint, that runs on 9V and sounds like Woodstock plus.
The Uni-Vibe was made in 1967-68 and was very VERY unique in its tone and technology, by which using a light built and photocells to create a phase shifting pattern. The result was incredibly unique and beautiful sounding phase sound that they actually labeled Chorus. It sounded beautiful clean, and electric fuzzed out. We ABed it with 6 modern vibes, and a 1968 and 1969 original Uni-Vibe - We got it as close as you could get to with our ears to the 1968 vintage sound.
Tru-Fi is retro, this is what I have tried to do with this company since the start. Build incredible toneful and well-built guitar pedals that sound and look like they are 50 years old. Building a true Uni-vibe was no small task enclosed in the small enclosure that we use, thennnnn lets make it run on 9V so everyone can just power it up and get the TONE. I went to great lengths to get all this in a box, the cells, the light bulb and THEN THE TONE - IT SOUNDS VERY GOOD !
The name The Ghost Vibe was created by George Blekas who was instrumental in getting this finished - I would not have finished it without him. We are both Hendrix tone nuts, and one day he said "you know all we are really doing is chasing the Ghost of Jimi" - a few minutes later it was named The Ghost Vibe ! It is also inspired by our dear friend Bob Sweet - RIP as printed on the circuit board.
NOTE! It’s True-Bypass and inside there is a 9V Battery
This pedal runs on 9V Power Negative Tip – It is converted inside via the power chip to 18Vs. NO NEED FOR AN 18V supply ! WARNING ! DAMAGE !
You CAN run the Ghost Vibe on a 9V battery but NOT long it is really just to test the signal ! If your jamming or playing out YOU NEED A POWER SUPPLY !
The Buffer/Non switch is INSIDE – RED is buffered – they are set to NON BUFFERED. Buffered is BRIGHTER and works best with Wahs and Fuzz's, NORMAL is the Vintage Darker Uni-Vibe tone !
ReviewsWillI've been through a lot of modulation pedals and found them all lacking in one way or another. This pedal, however, is flawless. Incredible vibe tones that sound great with fuzz, great with cleans, great with edge of breakup, and probably great with everything else. The vibrato mode is a HUGE bonus. I set mine fairly slow and light, and basically leave it on most of the time. One of those things you don't realise you'll miss until you turn it off! Teddy was a great guy to deal with – really helpful, and patient with all of my questions. Shipping to the UK was pretty quick, and reasonably priced, too. I'm sure this won't be my last Tru-Fi pedal!James P
Ghost VibeGotta be one of the best vintage Uni Vibe recreations on the market today. Built like a tank (will last for decades) and the tones are spot on. I can't stop using the pedal - clean, over driven, fuzzed they all sound incredible! Buy one - you will not be disappointed!Heikki
Amazing pedalI finally got this pedal and it is amazing. I really love how chewy it is. Bill Copeland: To your comment about pedal being noisy: Did you try with some high quality power supply with plenty of mAs? I tested this pedal with cheap power supply (Harley Benton PowerPlant Junior) which has isolated 9 V DC (120 mA). The pulsing noise was very prominent when pedal is engaged due to lack of mA. When I got the pedal into my board with high quality power supply from Gigrig all the pulsing sound was gone. Very clean without noise at all...John
Ghost VibeIt is a fantastic pedal. It's built like a tank. Very easy to dial in that vibe sound I've been searching for. Well done!Seth Krimsky
Ghost VibeI have spent years and $$ over the years trying to find a univibe that gives me the sound in my head. Small box, big box, I've tried so many. Always left feeling unsatisfied. Never found the one with the right lopsided throb, and vintage eq. The Ghost Vibe not only gives me that sound, it gives me something better than I could have imagined. Run this into a fuzz, with a little tape echo after. Sonic heaven. The way it chews into the fuzz, man oh man. Integrated seamlessly into my board. Looks awesome too. Put a ring on it.Bill Copeland
Ghost vibeOverall great pedal. Just a little bit of noiseScott D. Anderson
Ghost Vibe is so goodJesus, Teddy. The Ghost Vibe is super chewy! Love it. Rate around 10:00 and Depth around 9:30 and dream away. Lots of other great settings in there too but I love it right there. Just adds that special movement to the tone, clean or dirty.Tim Rocco
Ghost VibeA very authentic uni-vibe pedal. This one has earned a permanent place on the board.Jamie Stewart
GHOST VIBEit is PERFECT i love everything about it both the vibrato and chorus settings take me to other worlds BRAVA!!!!!!!!!!!! TRU FI!!!!!!!!!Ben Spinks
Perfection!Received my Ghost Vibe this morning after it’s transatlantic voyage and I’m happy to report that It’s absolutely stunning! Teddy’s nailed it! I’ve owned most vibes on the market, including the latest and greatest, but the Ghost Vibe just feels right. It has everything you’d want from a vibe. No fluff, just a perfectly dialled in, beautifully made Univibe.
