Fulltone was the first to put out an exact copy of the legendary Vintage'60's Univibe on a large scale, starting in 1994. Fulltone's has that dripping Phase-Chorused tone that made Jimi's "Machine Gun" so epic! The Deja’Vibe has evolved over the years, and is now available in silver & black as the Mini-Deja’Vibe (CS MDV-1)
Housed in a sturdy 16 gauge steel housing that measures a mere 4" x 5.75”, the CS MDV-1 is small enough to fit on the most cluttered pedalboard.
15% smaller enclosure, still with top-mounted jacks for tight spaces.
has MUCH slower and MUCH faster available speeds achieved by replacing the standard Speed pot everybody uses with a Fulltone custom-made Dual Photoresistor, while retaining the original Univibe's unique and crucial Oscillator circuit.
has a totally linear ramp up of the Speed knob (and external pedal).This is the bummer about older Deja'Vibes, other clones, and original Univibes: the speed controller has a spot where everything happens, making it hard to find the right speed. Problem-solved with the CS-
it has an External Pedal jack allowing the use of virtually any expression pedal out there, whether it has a 10K, a 50K, 100K, etc potentiometer. As i mentioned previously, you will LOVE the completely linear flow from slow to fast speeds.
It has twice the available volume as any vibe clone, assuring that you don't get bogged-down in the mix when you kick it on...without being bright and cold sounding, and a super-low output impedance so it works with Fuzz and even the dirtiest of amps!
100% correct Vintage Univibe analog circuit with no opamps in the Audio path, still using 13 x Panasonic 2SC828 transistors, still the Fulltone Proprietary glass lens/ hermetically sealed photocells with correct incandescent bulb.
