Is a Univibe the same as a phaser?

No big deal. Long story short, the Univibe was the first effects pedal that made modulation move through a guitar signal. A phaser knocks your signal out of phase and puts it back in phase, which creates this swooshing, whooshing sound.

Can a Univibe sound like a chorus?

The univibe effect basically modulates the guitar by way of knocking your signal in and out of phase. But at the end of the day, it’s not a phaser and it’s not a chorus.

Can a Univibe sound like a phaser?

Univibes are more or less 2 stage phasers [similar to the mxr phase 45], but they are driven by a photoresistor which gives them a certain distinctive sweep. There are a few other differences too, but they certainly are from the same effect family.

What is a Uni-Vibe pedal?

In certain pedals there is a degree of overlap, but generally a genuine Uni-Vibe pedal is actually a sort of phaser / phase-shifter whose effect is generated by bulb-driven photocell modulation. The original Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe was developed in around 1967/8 to replicate the Leslie / Rotary Speaker sound.

Does the Univibe sound better before or after gain effects?

Of course, it’s your choice but in my opinion, the UniVibe sounds best before gain effects. The reason for this is that UniVibes tend to make heavier overdrives and fuzz sound harsh and thin, when these are placed in front of the UniVibe. Placing the UniVibe first, creates a warmer and more natural sounding effect.
