Univibe pedal clone

Post by Neal » Sun Sep 02, 2012 10:09 am

In case y'all are int'rested...
Built this with the Neovibe board available from General Guitar Gadgets. Spent more time tracking down all the other parts than I did actually building the thing. Still need some knobs. Not sure if I'm gonna paint it. It sounds pretty damn good. Still some tweaking to do but so far I think this is the coolest thing I've built. Over 200 solder joints on the board. I feel like I could solder just about anything after that. 8)

Sweet. I bet you could solder about anything after that! Looks like pretty close quarters on that circuit board and in the enclosure. Any sound samples to share?

Just adding an update to this old thread. This pedal can be heard on the guitar solo at the end of this song:

It's a pretty long song so if you want to jump to the Univibe part it starts at 7:30.

It's a "wobbulated" bandpass filter.There was a circuit in a old Popular Electronics that used close to the same circuit, and I think PAIA offered a kit at one time.
