6/11/18: Black Cat does not currently have these awesome Uni-Vibe Rack pedals.
They do not expect to have them ready for purchase for approximately 6 weeks.
Check back to this page and I will update when an update becomes available.
Analog Man carries the Black Cat Vibe Uni-Vibe Rack unit. In late 2012 this effect was finally made available again, a new improved version of the original.


Early 2018 - backed up on these, ask if you need one soon.

The Black Cat Vibe was the flagship of the original Black Cat product line. It garnered a reputation among many as the best Univibe recreation ever made, and can still be found in the rigs of many well-known players. We've taken every measure to ensure that the new Black Cat Vibe will sound identical to its legendary predecessor. In addition, we've incorporated some improvements that will allow each unit to be more durable, reliable and consistently produced than the originals.

The new Black Cat Vibe was initially available in a stompbox format. It is also now available in the original half-rack format.

Black Cat Vibe FAQs

Are there any demos of the new Black Cat Vibe?

Yes, here's a great demo video of the new Black Cat Vibe by Nick Jaffe (Just Nick). Same circuit as the rack.

Does it have the flashing light thingy inside?
Yes, the Black Cat Vibe is a real authentic vibe, based on the original Univibe made famous by Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, and David Gilmour. It uses a flashing lamp and four photocells to create its distinctive sound. The Black Cat Vibe also uses another lamp for the indicator, whereas most other Univibe based effects use an LED.

Is this the same as the original Black Cat Vibe made by Fred Bonte?
Well, obviously it looks different. But yes, the circuit is the same as the original Black Cat Vibe. In fact, we auditioned several original Black Cat Vibes, picked the sweetest sounding one and reverse engineered it to create the new Black Cat Vibe. And it uses a 12V AC power supply, just like the original. The new Black Cat Vibe ships with its own 12V AC adapter (USA 120V AC only at this time).

Rack version available again in 2013!

Back panel has jacks for input, Output, Remote Bypass Switch, and Expression speed control.
