Best vibe out there!
Balch 12.01.2021
One of the best vibes out there! I've tried lots of different vibes, from the JHS Unicorn, Earthquaker Devices The Depths, EHX Good vibes, MXR Univibe, etc. But nothing compares to the Retro Vibe!

This vibe has everything you could want, from the authentic 'heartbeat' throbbing sound, the solid build quality, and the simple controls. No need for any additional tap tempo and EQ controls as it sounds amazing as it is!

I use the vibe with a fuzz face running into it and takes you straight back to the 60s. Very expressive when using with an expression pedal but there is absolutely no need, as sounds great without one too.

If you're looking for a better vibe, you'll be hard-pressed to find one better than the Retro Vibe!

Magical sound, a bit dark, but dark magic
Goodsquirrel 16.02.2021
After watching both the 'JHS Show' and 'That Pedal Show' episodes on Univibe, I couldn't help but do my own shootout between JHS Unicorn v2, Fulltone Déja Vibe mk2, and Jam Pedals RetroVibe mk2.
I only tested the 'chorus' setting, and I used a Tele with Noiseless pickups, an (old US-made) Hod Rod Deluxe and a G2 switcher.
Result: the tap tempo on the Unicorn is great! Sound was good, but as with most JHS pedals a little bit too bright / harsh for my ears. I'm sure, this vibe won't get lost in the mix, but on it's own for my personal taste it lacks some warm lo-mids/bass frequencies that I love. Dèja Vibe was almost perfect, not changing my original tone, but adding a great vibe.
RetroVibe was the opposite of the Unicorn: sound a bit dark, perhaps too dark in some setups, might get lost in the mix without an additional treble booster, no tap tempo, needs a special type of expression pedal to control speed by foot. It does change the original tone, adding warm warpy beautiful magic that hit me in the face.
I would love a combination of all three: tap tempo, no darkening of tone, and magic.
But I had to chose and went for MAGIC!

I had it for 3 years then started to make noises
StormWind 04.03.2021
This is a simple to use, two knobs univibe (although I would have liked to have the intensity knob on top instead of the little trimmer inside the pedal).
Mine worked great at first then started to make noises, forced me to send it back to the manufacturer for repairs.
Sometimes sounded mushy with different fuzzes I had... maybe the worse univibe I've ever had.

Superlative sounding Vibe!!!
juliosouth1 08.10.2018
This unit outperforms even the Fulltone DejaVibe (which was the benchmark for me until now) and certainly most other vibe recreations around. Incredibly rich sounding, 100% analog and handmade and with a beautiful paint job no less, this is all the univibe one may ever need. Stunning
