Like the original Uni-Vibe it uses photocells for a sound and response that’s true to the classic design.

New York, NY (February 24, 2015) -- The EHX Good Vibes is a re-creation of the classic “flower power” era chorus/vibrato pedal. According to company President and Founder, Mike Matthews, “We designed it to take you on a trip back to the ‘60s so it delivers the warm, liquid groove we associate with that time in music, but we also updated it to meet the needs of contemporary players.”

Like the original Uni-Vibe it uses photocells for a sound and response that’s true to the classic design. However, boosted power rails provide 21st century definition and headroom, while true bypass switching ensures maximum signal path integrity. An expression pedal input was added and puts control of speed and intensity at the player’s feet.

The Good Vibes features easy-to-use controls consisting of Volume, Speed and Intensity knobs plus two switches: a Chorus/Vibrato selector and an EXP Speed/Intensity switch which lets the player choose EXP pedal control of either. The pedal is housed in a rugged, compact die-cast chassis and for added convenience is powered by a standard center negative 9V power supply, which is included. An always-on speed indicator is also included. The Good Vibes has a U.S. List Price of $179.99.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
