This is the Viberator – a premium, stereo version of the vintage, Uni-Vibe® type phase shifter with a number of modern options. All analogue circuitry in a very compact design.
Dawner Prince in Croatia got our attention because they made another Binson pedal – the “Boonar” – and naturally we needed to try one. The result of that was that we had to have it. Boonar pedals are now in stock. From talking to them and looking at their gear we really like how these guys think and so we’re taking on some other interesting pedals that they do – as well as this pedal we’ve also taken on their very nice “Starla” tap tremolo.
We’ll post more info and our own demo once we’ve had a proper play with it, but in the meantime here below is what Zoran at Dawner Prince has to say about it and a video demo. If you have any questions please get in touch.
Control adjusts the thickness and throb of the vibe (chorus) effect from subtle waving all the way to a deep and strong «heart-beat» like warble. In vibrato mode it adjusts the amount of pitch de-tuning effect.
Control adjusts the rate of the pulsations of the vibe (chorus) or vibrato effect. Viberator has an extended speed range in comparison with the original Uni-Vibe and is customized to deliver balanced rotary tones even on maximum speed setting.
Control modifies the waveform that drives internal light bulb. From perfectly symmetrical sine wave in middle pot position to distorted waveforms in either end positions, this controls is unique and provides various sound effects from true vintage vibe to a new and interesting phaser sounds.
Chorus / Vibrato switch
Selects between classic Uni-Vibe chorus and de-tuning pitch bend vibrato mode.
Vintage / Modern switch & Bright trimmer
Vintage mode engages original Uni-Vibe input circuitry resulting in a warm and slightly darker tone, while Modern mode engages input FET buffer, resulting in a more brighter overral tone. The brightness in Modern mode can be further adjusted with Bright side trimmer. This control is very useful as it allows the pedal to be matched with any amplifier and /or guitar pickups.
Viberator is the most compact vibe pedal with true stereo outputs for real 3D, rotating speaker sound. When in Chorus mode, signal at stereo output is a ‘mirror image’ of the signal at mono output.
We have added separate volume controls on output channels for even more versatility. Output volume levels are slightly above unity gain with controls set fully clockwise.
This input allows the speed of the effect to be controlled with an expression pedal. Viberator accepts any standard expression or volume pedals with 10K pot (e.g. Roland EV-5). Plugging in an expression pedal automatically disengages Viberator’s Speed control potentiometer.
Gain & Offset
Gain and Offset control operation of the internal light bulb that illuminatates photocells and are used to set the right sweep and throb sound of the effect. Gain sets intensity range and Offset sets the balance of the sweep of the effect. These controls are factory preset.
True Bypass / Bi-colour LED indicator
Viberator utilizes True Bypass switching system on both mono and stereo channel. Status LED flashes in time with the speed setting and lights yellow when the effect is bypassed or blue when the effect is engaged.
Viberator accepts standard 9V DC on the input which is internally converted and regulated to 15V DC (Uni-Vibe operating voltage) to assure plenty of headroom and dead silent operation. Viberator also utilizes internal reverse power polarity protection circuitry.
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
