In 2015 we brought you the Unicorn V1 …the world’s first bulb-driven photocell modulator with tap tempo…our very own Uni-Vibe if you’ll. This Spring 2018 we are proud to bring you the Unicorn V2! Pink Floyd’s “Breathe,” Jimi Hendrix’s “Star Spangled Banner live at Woodstock 1969,” and Robin Trower’s “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 identical to the originals, we included a toggle for choosing between a Uni-Vibe* effect and a traditional vibrato setting. What sets Unicorn with the exception of all other vibe-style circuits is that it’s the first-ever fully analog, photocell-based vibe with tap tempo in addition to ratio, external tap Keep watch over, and external rate Keep watch over by the use of 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. You’re welcome.
