Modelling the sound of the original Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe, the TC Electronic Viscous Vibe Pedal offers up the warbly goodness found on many classic records from acts including Pink Floyd, Robin Trower, and Jimi Hendrix. Despite its vintage heritage, the Viscous Vibe is fully modern inside and out. The standard-sized housing has controls for Speed, Intensity, and Volume, as well as a switch for the type of "vibe," including a selection for a custom TonePrint.
With dual quarter-inch inputs and outputs, you can place the Viscous Vibe in any part of your mono or stereo effects chain. By default, the footswitch is set to give you true bypass for no additional tone colouration, however, a buffer can be turned on if you have to drive long cables going to your amp.
Save your own custom sounds to the Viscous Vibe with TonePrint. Using the free apps — available for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android operating systems — you can have granular control over the inner workings of the pedal. When you're done adjusting inside the TonePrint Editor, connect your pedal via USB or just beam the settings from your phone to the pedal, where they will be saved and ready for action any time you flip the switch to the "TonePrint" setting. Other custom sounds are available from artists and other TonePrint users online, so you can take advantage of the flexibility available inside the Viscous Vibe in no time.
