    Designed by audio engineer Fumio Mieda to mimic the sound of radio signals from Russia undergoing atmsoheric modulation, the Univibe was first introduced in 1967 as the Honey Vibra Chorus but took on its more familiar form in 1968 following the collapse of Honey and Shin-ei taking up the design. It was also at this point that the external speed control was added.

    This unit has been extremely well cared for though it's certainly not been hiding in a cupboard, its probably the best we have ever had. The front panel is in good shape with a few chips but nothing that detracts from the look. Overall this unit is in great cosmetic condition. 

    Inside a small extra breadboard circuit has been glued onto the chassis, we're not entirely sure what this does though it could be to do with the changed pot in the treadle. The unit sounds exactly as expected and works perfectly. Elsewhere, nothing else seems to have been changed or modified.

    Gilmour, Trower, Hendrix, McCready, four reasons why you should try a Univibe at least once. Nothing comes close to the original. All that wonderful modulation is here, all controlled so effortlessly by the footpedal. 

    Iconic and you won’t get that sound any other way. Grab this one before its gone…
