Strymon Announces New UltraViolet Vintage Vibe Pedal

–News Direct–

Westlake Village, CA, USA – September 26, 2023 (500NewsWire) — Strymon Engineering (, the respected manufacturer of premium products for the guitar, plugin and Eurorack markets, announced the arrival of a new vintage-inspired vibe pedal called Ultraviolet today. The new pedal recreates the sound and feel of the original Shin Ei Univibe units from the 60s, popularized by players like Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, David Gilmour and Doyle Bramhall II, but adds a number of different options that were never available on the original units for greater flexibility. Housed in the same smaller chassis as Strymons recent Cloudburst and Brig releases, Ultraviolet also takes advantage of all of the features of the new platform, including full MIDI implementation and 300 presets, USB-C connectivity, stereo IO on TRS jacks, a rear-panel mono/stereo switch and a discrete JFET input preamp for unmatched touch-sensitivity and tone.

Good grief this thing is addicting to play!, said Sean Halley, Strymons Head of Marketing. It has all of the low frequency girth that the best pricey boutique big-box pedal versions have, but it can do so much more than the originals could and its small enough to fit on any board. Its the very first digital vibe Ive ever heard that sounds this big. Pete Celi, Strymons co- founder and DSP guru adds After deeply studying a bunch of the best analog units we ended up giving UltraViolet three different Bias settings, so you can really fine-tune the response to fit the music youre playing. Also, in addition to the traditional Chorus (50/50) and Vibrato (100% wet) modes, the new Blend mode gives you a 70/30 mix of dry and wet, for more subtle versions of the effect. It can totally do the hyper-authentic 60s thing, but it can do a bunch of other stuff that makes it much more versatile than the original units.

UltraViolet is available now directly from Strymon and from dealers worldwide for $259 US.
