Pink Floyds Breathe, Jimi Hendrixs Star Spangled Banner live at Woodstock 1969, and Robin Trowers Bridge of Sighs cemented the sound of a photocell-based vibe effect as an electric guitar standard. The JHS Pedals Unicorn is our version of this heralded effect, continuing the inspiring modulation/phasing/rotary sounds that never fail to push musical boundaries.
And just like the originals, we included a toggle for choosing between a Uni-Vibe effect and a traditional vibrato setting. What sets Unicorn apart from all other vibe-style circuits is that it is the first-ever fully analog, photocell-based vibe with tap tempo as well as ratio, external tap control, and external rate control via expression pedal (optional). And the Unicorn does it all with only four knobs and a mini-toggle switch. In a day and age when everything has been seen and done, we bring you the first-ever, 100% analog vibe photocell modulator with onboard tap tempo.
Sounds as good as you remember. The Unicorn is bursting with all the lush and washy pulsations that changed what the electric guitar could sound like in the 1960s. And this is no digital emulation.
The Unicorn sports the real-deal, analog photocell topology of the original units. Sounds like the originals because its built like the originals.
All-analog signal path delivers a warm, touch-sensitive tone. Dry/Wet toggle selects between a Uni-Vibe and vibrato effect. There are other analog vibe pedals and there are pedals with tap-tempo control, but - if were allowed to gloat for a second - the JHS Unicorn is the first to put em together. Add optional external speed control and a ratio knob that determines the rhythmic subdivisions - or as we like to say, how much fairy dust enters into the flux capacitor of the Unicorn - and you have one of the most versatile vibe pedals on the market.
Control the rate of the effect with the Speed knob or onboard tap-tempo footswitch. Want quarter note, dotted eighth, or triplet rhythms? Theyre all found on the Ratio knob.
LED indicator notifies you of the effects tempo, even when disengaged. External tempo and expression control. One of the things that makes the vintage Shin-ei Uni-Vibes so desirable is your ability to control the effects rate in real time with an external expression pedal. How could we not include that! And to go one step further, you can slave the pedal to other tap-controlled pedals for rhythmic consistency across all your effects.
Internal Tap/Expression mini switch controls the side-mounted Tap/Exp TRS jack. Expression pedal control of the Unicorns rate in the Exp setting. Use an external source to control the rate in the Tap Out setting (Works great with our Panther Cub Delay, Emperor Chorus pedals). Couldnt be easier to use. One of the things were most proud of with the Unicorn Uni-vibe Photocell Modulator is how easy it is to dial up the exact pulse of a mystical Unicorn running across a field of 4-leaf clovers but only if you dare.
Four knobs and a mini toggle are all you need for a world of syrupy, modulated tones. Left two controls are your tone, right two controls are your speed, toggle is your effect. What's new in the V2.
The original Unicorn sounds great and works perfectly, so we didn't change a thing about it other than: its now half the size, and its a lower price point! When everything has been done and everything has been seen, we bring you a first ever 100% analog signal path Uni-vibe Photocell Modulator w/ Tap Tempo. If you have kids or just want a copy of our picture book called The Rarest of All, go to the product page. This pedal requires standard 9V DC Negative power, consumes less than 100mA, and measures 2.2"x4.8"x1.6.
