Black Cat Pedals has announced the return of the legendary Black Cat Vibe. The new Black Cat Vibe is now available in an attractive, custom-made stompbox enclosure and will begin shipping this week. Black Cat also plans to have the original half-rack version available in September.
The Black Cat Vibe was the flagship of the original Black Cat product line. It garnered a reputation among many as the best Univibe re-creation ever made, and can still be found in the rigs of many well-known players, such as Trey Anastasio, Steve Lukather, and Michael Landau. We've taken every measure to ensure that the new Black Cat Vibe will capture the sound and tonal nuance of its legendary predecessor. In addition, we've incorporated some improvements that will allow each unit to be more durable, reliable and consistently produced than the originals.
Our goal from the start was not just to make a Univibe, but to resurrect the Black Cat Vibe. So the new Black Cat Vibe uses the same circuit as the original. In fact, we auditioned several original Black Cat Vibes, picked the sweetest sounding one and reverse engineered it to create the new Black Cat Vibe. It even uses a 12V AC power supply, just like the original.
The new Black Cat Vibe will retail for $334.95. There is currently a two-month wait for the Black Cat Vibe. For more information, or to get on the list, go to www.blackcatpedals.com. You can keep track of the latest updates by visiting www.facebook.com/blackcatpedals.
