Jimi's Chorus and Vibrato Effect

Part of the iconic Jimi Hendrix tone is the huge wash and texture that was heard all over the "Band of Gypsys" album. With the Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Signature Univibe Mini, that tone is closer than ever. This tiny little pedal perfectly re-creates the iconic rotary speaker effect without all of the bulk or the price tag of the original Univibe stompbox. The pure analog circuitry inside this unit will stun you and your audience with its depth, richness, and chorus effect. 
 

Big tone in a mini stompbox

Jimi's Univibe can be heard on tracks like Machine Gun and his rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock. The Univibe is a large unit that is hard to fit on a pedalboard. The Hendrix Univibe Mini provides the classic Univibe sound in a stompbox you can easily fit on your board. Dialing this one in is easy too. Simply choose your speed, find your depth, and equalize your level. The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Signature Univibe Mini stompbox is sure to become one of your favorite effects.

Delivers classic analog tone in a pedalboard friendly size

Re-creates legendary "Band of Gypsys" tones

Speed knob controls the Univibe's cycle rate

Depth knob controls the tremolo effect

True-bypass switching won't interfere with other pedals when switched off

Jimi's Mysterious Fuzz Tone

During 1969 and 1970, Jimi Hendrix used a Fuzz Face distortion pedal that sounded different from any of his other Fuzz Faces. This red version of the Fuzz Face had a much more aggressive and biting tone than audiences had ever experienced before. The Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsys Fuzz Mini distortion pedal is built to provide the Hendrix lover with that iconic tone. Painstakingly created by engineers at Dunlop, this pedal has a version of the Octavio circuit that does not have the "octave-up" effect. The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsys Fuzz faithfully re-creates the gravelly, biting tone from Jimi's red fuzz.
 

Modified Octavio Circuit

The Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsys Fuzz carries a modified Octavio circuit. Most notably, the octave portion of the circuit is removed. You're left with a square waveform that drips with saturation. In addition it has an in-your-face bite and heavy presence that is almost out of control. When you roll back the volume though, the Band of Gypsys Fuzz becomes considerably more behaved and cleans up well.

Huge tone with a small footprint

If Dunlop were to put this circuit into a traditionally sized Fuzz Face housing, it wouldn't be practical for today's guitarists. Luckily, Dunlop shrank the circuitry and crammed it into a mini pedal housing. This size is incredibly pedalboard friendly and won't require you to remove any of your favorite pedals to harness Jimi's sound.

Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Signature Band of Gypsys Fuzz Mini Effects Pedal Features:

Pumps out Jimi Hendrix's legendary Red Fuzz tone from 1969 and 1970

Square waveform has extra bite and sounds super heavy

Tone and Fuzz controls let you dial in your sound

Output control tries to restrain the fuzz's power

True-bypass switching won't interfere with other pedals when switched off

Authentic Hendrix Fuzz Tone

Hendrix fans everywhere have been trying to replicate his legendary tones for decades. With the Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio Mini fuzz pedal, you can get his huge, snarling tone in a pedalboard-friendly size. A member of the ’69 Psych Series, the Octavio Mini updates the circuitry of Jimi's fuzz to fit the size constraints of the modern player's pedalboard. This full-range fuzz has been updated to include an octave switch to toggle between standard fuzz and Jimi's iconic octave-up sound. The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Signature Octavio Mini Fuzz pedal will provide you with the satisfying, snarling, saturated Hendrix sound without taking up too much real estate on your pedalboard.
 

Modified Vintage Circuitry

The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Signature Octavio Mini Fuzz has a modified version of the original Octavio circuit. The modification improves its cohesion while adding the ability to toggle the octave function on and off. Since this effect is a fuzz, the controls are very easy to use. Simply experiment with the level and fuzz knobs until you find your perfect tone. This little pedal will still pump out that "Purple Haze" tone while allowing you to customize the tone to your liking.

Massive tone in a mini stompbox

The original "cheese wedge" Octavio pedal is large and very inconvenient to incorporate into a modern pedalboard. Its unusually large size would force a Hendrix lover to remove other pedals in order to have an Octavio on their board. The Octavio Mini's tiny housing improves its pedalboard friendliness without losing any of the classic tone.

Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Signature Octavio Mini Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal Features:

Modern version of the classic circuit used by Hendrix

Octave-up switch controls octave function

Legendary Hendrix octave fuzz tones in a pedalboard-friendly housing

Touch-sensitive fuzz tones cover a range of intensities

Level and Fuzz controls are quick and easy to dial in

True-bypass switching won't interfere with other pedals when switched off

Trippy Hendrix inspired design
