About This Listing
*The Sabbadius 69 Funky-Vibe version:
Is the one made by Shin-ei Companion in Japan in 1969 when Honey UNICORD company get in a bankrup so this Japanese company started making them and changed some inside components that make the sound slighty different compared with the 1968 Uni-Vibe. This version was the one used by David Gilmour and Robin Trower on the 70s. The sound is more "round" and more chewy sound in CHORUS mode than the 68 version in my opinion.
*The Sabbadius FILLMORE EAST Special Edition version:
When Honey UNICORD get in bankruptcy and switched to Shin-ei Companion there where some parts used in the 1968 and some other in 1969 that were mixed, so this version is a mix of the 68 & 69 and a plus for this version is that the FILLMORE EAST 2021 has CUSTOM MADE 7mm CdS photocells that gives to the sound in my opinion some kind of "MOJO". This version is more intense and chewy than the 68 & 69 version.
The 3 versions are awesome, really 3D underwater sound and slightly different tones that is not easy to notice.
You will get what you need and don't be dissapointed if you get any of this 3 versions.
The transistors used here are the Matsushita 2sC828 and 2sC539 for the Pre-Amp section
like in the original Uni-Vibe. The pedal features 3 knobs, which set VOLUME, INTENSITY,
and SPEED. It has a 1/4-inch (6.5 mm) output connection for a CUSTOM MADE expression
pedal, allowing you to control the speed with your foot (Expression Pedal NOT
included). It also features 2 footswitches: one of them activates the effect for True
Bypass, the other one switch is the CANCEL function that allows you to use the pedal as
a Pre-Amp or the original Uni-Vibe effect sound this means that you turn off the lamp
bulb keeping a high impedance in the photocells that gives to the sound a wonderful
Pre-Amp like Original Uni-Vibe's did in the foot control pedal with the tact switch. It
has a hand painted soft switch with airbrush and enamel paint lacquered with gloss
lacquer for a longer duration of the painting. RED/WHITE soft Rocker Switch that you
set the mode´s in RED POSITION DOWN activates the "CHORUS" MODE and when the WHITE
POSITION IS DOWN you are in "VIBRATO" MODE.
SABBADIUS provides an original 14 Vac ~ 200mA transformer inside the enclosure like the
Original Uni-Vibe has and the cable cord from the unit to the wall so is ready to plug
