Retro Vibe in name, retro in nature. Jam Pedals’ combination of vibrato and chorus excels when applied to clean tones in a full sixties’ throwback to simpler times.
The Retro Vibe is built to sound brilliant as is, without the need to fiddle endlessly with extensive controls. Toggle between vibrato and chorus, provided with speed and depth dials, respectively. Add in the expression pedal input for either settings, and you’re onto a winner.
Here's what Jam Pedals say about the Retro Vibe:
Comprised of 4 photocells, a bulb, original NOS 2SC828 transistors and carbon comp resistors, the RetroVibe mk.2 delivers the majestic sounds of the best Uni-Vibe pedals from back in the day, but housed in a modern pedalboard-friendly enclosure and featuring standard 9V DC operation, internally lifted to 15V DC.
Choose between the Vibrato and Chorus settings and navigate from slow-rate wavy sounds all the way to fast Leslie-speaker effects!
Use it in conjunction with our EXP4 Expression pedal for real-time Speed control!
An added twist! We have incorporated an internal trimmer that affects the maximum intensity of the effect, but also dramatically manipulates the sound of the RetroVibe mk.2, all the while, maintaining the pedal’s true vintage character.
Roses are red violets are blue the RetroVibe’s purple and you’ll looove it too!

“I have been using a univibe Clone since the early 90’s live. The RetroVibe is right on track with the perfect sound we’ve all heard and love. It’s way more faithful and musical than other vibe pedals out there.” J Mascis
“I literally was looking everywhere for the right kind of vibe. As you know I’m a tone freak and we’re always searching for the best...I just knew immediately that that’s the sound that I was looking for...whenever I need that tone, RetroVibe is by far my favourite one!” Andy Timmons
“I love the RetroVibe! It is a magic piece of equipment! It is almost on every single guitar track on the new record. I hardly turn it off these days!” Ruban Nielson
“The Retrovibe is my Vibe of choice. It has all of the “Vibe” of the original, particularly that illusive, complex midrange that responds so beautifully to pick attack. It behaves perfectly with Fuzz Face type pedals and is more transparent than any of the old Univibes I have heard. That it is so compact is quite a bonus and mine has Laurel and Hardy on it (I got lucky – the rest of you get flowers, Ha!)” Julien Kasper
