THANK YOU THE DEMAND HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE 

Over a year in the making.....

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

Released on August 18th 2022, let the swirl begin ! 

 

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 !

    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.

    Finally - a univibe that's a keeper! Have owned just about every builders' attempt at the original. They've come and gone on my board. However, this one seems destined to stay. Not able to compare the real deal next to this new deal, but it sounds like the sound in my head when I'm playing at home or with the band. I had resigned to "close but no cigar" univibes until now. Thanks Teddy for all the hard work, experience, and thought you put into the Tru-Fi Ghost Vibe!
