Has your pedalboard been shaking with excitement lately? That’s because pedal pioneers TC Electronic have released two new pedals for you to create classic vibe tones and phaser sounds: the Viscous Vibe and Helix Phaser.
The original Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe is a highly unique, complex and gorgeous-sounding analog unit, so when TC Electronic set out to recreate it digitally, they knew it wouldn’t be an easy task. However, TC Electronic has been able to recreate the legendary effect to a tee in the form of the Viscous Vibe. Get all the lush, syrupy vibe tones heard on countless tracks by Pink Floyd, Robin Trower and Jimi Hendrix and when you dive into that opening Machine Gun riff, we just know you’ll be convinced that TC nailed it!
Set Phaser To Awesome! The most flexible and versatile phaser ever, TC Electronic’s Helix Phaser will take your tone to new inspiring heights with all the massive mind-bending swooshes and swirly goodness you could possibly desire.
With an extensive set of controls, the Helix Phaser enables you to dial in everything from vibrant vintage-sounding Gilmour swirls, big and bold Van Halen sweeps to more modern phaser tones a la Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead. Now add True Bypass and Analog-Dry-Through to the mix and you have your new favourite sonic drug.
