Black Cat Pedals Releases the Stereo Black Cat Vibe

The pedal uses a flashing incandescent lamp and four photocells to create its distinctive sound.

Foxon, CT (January 9, 2017) -- Black Cat Pedals is pleased to announce the new Stereo Black Cat Vibe.

The Stereo Black Cat Vibe uses the same circuit as its legendary predecessor, with the addition of two exciting new features:

  • Second output jack for true stereo operation
  • Enhanced power supply circuitry to accommodate 12V DC power, or 12V AC (like the original)

That's right, the new Stereo Black Cat Vibe now runs on DC power, which makes it compatible with any multi-pedal brick type power supply unit that can supply 12V DC with a minimum current of 400mA.

The Black Cat Vibe has garnered a reputation among many as the best Univibe effect ever made, and has been used by Trey Anastasio, Steve Lukather, Scott Henderson, Michael Landau, Elliott Randall, and many others.

The Black Cat Vibe uses a flashing incandescent lamp and four photocells to create its distinctive sound. This is an essential part of accurately creating the authentic Univibe effect. The new Black Cat Vibe features our custom 3D printed Black Cat Dome to shield this part of the circuit and create the proper environment for optimal response.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
