Let these two new Electro-Harmonix pedals transport you to a time when things were a little more groovy, and well, fuzzy.

Experience classic “flower power” era chorus/vibrato with the new EHX Good Vibes 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 pedal 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.

The new Electro-Harmonix Octavix pedal delivers the definitive late1960’s fuzzed out, octave up sound together with modern enhancements that update the classic concept.

• Housed in EHX’s rugged nano package, the Octavix features Volume, Boost and Octave knobs.
• Volume regulates the output level of the pedal.
• Boost controls the amount of fuzz tone and Octave adjusts the volume of the octave above.
• A mini-toggle lets the player select between 9 or 24 volt power rails and determines the power supply voltage for the entire circuit.
• At 9V the pedals behaves like the classic, saggy fuzz box. At 24V the Octavix delivers a tighter sound and a richer octave tone.
• True bypass ensures maximum signal path integrity.A period-evocative, psychedelic design and blue LED contribute to the pedal’s vintage vibe.
• Octavix runs on a 9 volt battery or accepts a standard EHX9.6DC power supply, and carries a U.S. List Price of $117.15.
