The Micro Vibe is Voodoo Lab recreation of the original Dunlop Univibe from the 60's and 70's that replicated the effect of a rotating speaker cabinet. It was most famously used by artists such as Jimi Hendrix and others as as well. Voodoo Lab has created a fine product here, by offering a pedal that is 100 percent analog and even hand-wired, with true bypass. Pedals like this should make pedal-loving players drool.

The Micro Vibe accepts 9V batteries, and is packaged in a rugged metal casing that embodies simplicity.

UTILIZATION

It doesn't get simpler than this, The Micro Vibe has two knobs, for "intensity" and "speed". To state the obvious, the "intensity" knob controls the depth or degree of roatary speaker effect, and the "speed" controls the relative speed of the rotating speaker. No manual needed. Plug and play.

SOUND QUALITY

If you like psychadelia, or even just classic rock you can appreciate what a rotary effect can do to space out your sound. Well, the Micro Vibe definitely delivers. It can offer you a subtle chorusy tremolo sound, all the way to a deep swirling pulse that is lush, earthy, and organic sounding. Unlike a lot of the hand-wired pedals from the 70's, this one is a bit more predictable; you CAN'T get a bad sound out of this box. It does what its supposed to, and not much else. Playing with the speed dial will give you some eerie sounds, but nothing too crazy. Its just a good all-around tremolo pedal that is quite good at recreating the Univibe sound, which is something even the Univibe reissues don't really do. Voodoo Lab knows what they are doing.
This pedal interacted nicely with my small tube combo and my other floor effects, like placing distortion in front brings out a bit more of the modulation/phaser sound. Add in a delay and it gets spacier, a flanger and it gets downright scary-wierd quick.

OVERALL OPINION

Pitting this pedal against the Fulltone Mini Deka Vibe, or other even more expensive tremolos- its hard to pick a winner on sound alone. But the Micro Vibe is seriously awesome contruction, and it is dirt cheap compared to the others being only 150 or so. So its a pretty easy choice to make for me. I love this thing. Its one of the pedal purchases that I feel the best about in a long time.

Kind Univibe pedal, switch, In / Out / DC in (9V) (not listed in front, which can be a plus for the positioning pedal board. 2 knobs (intensity / Depth).
Analog technology has based optocells as the original.

MXR big size, like all pedals VoodooLab ...

UTILIZATION

Super simple setup, connect, turn the knobs. Nothing extaordinaire .....

SOUND QUALITY

The effect is supposed to replicate the expensive Univibe effect Jimi Hendrix and Robin Trower (listen Machine Gun or live in Woodstock ....) ... It does the job, I also have a Mini Deja Vibe, the sound is very very close. but I noticed that the Fulltone was noisier when it is associated saturations. It is also more voluminous ... So I kept VoodooLab, the Fulltone is for sale. allow the knob to control a roughly parameters foot, practice.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had four months, delighted, I gained up by the report and the Fulltone Honestly, kla difference in sound is not clear, the effect Hendrix sought is there ...., added to that the silence of the effect, the relatively compact body compared to other univibes (except Lovepedal pickle vibe) This is perfect for me. The Fulltone has an advantage anyway: the speed knob is large and very well placed for easy adjustment to the foot.

pedal, united vibe! sort of Leslie
in out

UTILIZATION

not plug and play ... turning the trim in the interior and there!
whoaou! all types are univibes and found the sound that we're good!

SOUND QUALITY

very effective in the open condition and slaving the small screw.

OVERALL OPINION

many are disappointed with this pedal because nobody talks about internal control and apparently they are all delivered with a different setting! is ballo, so beware you turn the screw and you will not be disappointed
Rich Robison is not!

Copy made in California from 1969 to Univibe, or so they say on the box.
Otherwise, an on / off switch and 2 knobs.
On paper, therefore, a great pedal.

UTILIZATION

Simple to use: 2 knobs are turned and we get the sound you want, the little tremolo to psychedelic vibe completely.

SOUND QUALITY

I agree with the previous opinion: this pedal eats a max frequency, volume and dynamics of the game
Indeed, the effect is rather successful vibe but from my point of view unusable in a rig, except if it is engaged all the time.
But in all the cases it deteriorates too sound to be useful.

OVERALL OPINION

I love the sound of Univibe and I have owned and tried a dozen, this one is the worst of all.
I wanted to buy the myth, ben is missing.
I do not recommend this pedal at all, turn to the competition.

All adj t said, it's voodoo.

UTILIZATION

Edition rev sounds extremely simple since there are only two potentiomtres, very easy to adjust.
The manual is almost non-existent but it does not matter trs simple Accs.

SOUND QUALITY

While I admit the tomb be on the ass .... It's life, sings, it's hot as her. Essential for one who loves this. Both sound clear as saturated (not too much even, APRS is a soup).

OVERALL OPINION

A gem is trs simple to use and the rendering is gantissime. I wonder how I managed without it up Submitted.

See below

UTILIZATION

Idem, two knobs, it's easy!

SOUND QUALITY

American Series Stratocaster 50th, maxon od 808, a Fender Champ 12 pti more micro vibes ...
hey baby !!!!! I tremble o pace of leslie, I trmousse, dhanche me, me me twists and folds ... the Panard! good, you have AIM this course, but fans of Jimmie 70s sounds, the Arians and psychs find their happiness!
I love me!
requires analog, attention to breath is initiated when the pedals and you do not play

OVERALL OPINION

I use it recently but can not do without dja (attention so do not put any sauces, either in your compositions, which are sometimes difficult rvele!)
I found 150 secondhand, so I do not know that new hsit is a bit expensive but I think it's worth every penny!
I would do so well on the same choice, knowing that it's been awhile since I wanted to buy it
any fawn, to testing, costs nothing!

Leslie is an emulated (Univibe), compact, simple, analog.
Format pedal, and one in an out, 9V battery or power supply.

UTILIZATION

Super simple, two pots: Intensity and Vibe.
Nothing is easier!
Supplied with a history of this effect, and an audio CD that we discover the full range Voodoo Lab.
No manual, but frankly not helpful.

SOUND QUALITY

Nothing is more realistic than this (in the true course by Leslie ...)

Start a 70's (reissue), a Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz and Fender HotRod Deluxe Foot!
I add a TS9 for grain and its well dirty I want: Oula!
it hisses, it sings, moves his brief, his Hendrixien, that of the Band of Gypsys and Woodstock ...
Hey baby would not exist without this.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few days and frankly, nothing to say, the thrill of the first 30 seconds of test!
Despite high prices, frankly it's worth it.
Are even more expensive!

Frankly, I love, I love it! and I've tested!

No regret in this investment, and I would do the same choice every day!

Lesli is a simulator for guitar.
Superb effects pedals, with a switch on / off and a SETTING THE speed and intensity.
100% analog!
In one case indestructible!

UTILIZATION

Use, have just RULES speed and depth, have Apui on it and go
No need to notice the little rglage.
Just turn the knobs for sound rve.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound of the Leslie and really wonderful, it has a unique grain!
In high speed sound is really EXCELLENT!

OVERALL OPINION

I possde 5 years, all the pedals I've heard of Lesli micro vibe is still my favorite!
His only dfau mini jack, which is used for food is too fragile
It is a bit CHRE's true but what's
