Since this resurrection takes place 50 years after the initial presentation and includes several additional features, the name "Nuvibe" appears quite appropriate. The original, which was developed in Japan, celebrated its debut at the legendary Woodstock Festival and has been a secret weapon for countless guitarists since then. The sound of this modulation effect is as unique as it is unmistakable. The edition was rather modest, and no one ever explored the secret of the circuits, let alone the components required for a replica. And what is rare is becoming immortal. There have been many experimenters and modellers trying to recreate this effect in real or virtually, but so far no approach could reach the original. That is why they thought that their experiment should at least have the advantage that the developer of the original was supporting and directing them. And that worked. The effect device is based on the original circuits and simulations of out-of-the-box components, which exactly produce the highly coveted modulation sound. However, since they had have to offer a bit more now, it is equipped with new WAVE sliders for generating original waveforms.
  • A legendary modulation effect is brought back to life by the developer of the original! At the same time, the range of functions has been extended to meet current requirements
  • Discrete circuit with 79 transistors. The CdS photoresist, which is responsible for the sound, is simulated by a new transistorbased circuit
  • The WAVE controls allow the generation of new LFO waveforms
  • New buffer circuit from the developer of the original
  • Battery operation also possible (6x AA batteries for a duration of ± 4 hours)
  • Genuine bypass circuit which is missing on the original
  • Supplied with the appropriate expression pedal to control modulation
  • Switch concept that bypasses the internal circuits when the effect is inactive
