Uni-Vibe Service

 

Classic Amplification Specializes
in vintage Uni-Vibe repair

Dr. Vibe ...is in the house!

 

The most common problems found when original Uni-Vibe's are sent in to me for service are the following, shown below in a list ordered from most common to least common:

 

  1. Broken or burned-out Lamp (Bulb)
    (not meaning the pilot light on the front panel, but we can sure fix that too!)
  2. Dead or near-dead LFO (oscillator) section
  3. Dead or near-dead Bulb Driver section
  4. Bad DIN jacks or plugs (speed pedal connectors)
  5. Bad Power Supply capacitors
  6. Power Switch
  7. Audio capacitors
  8. VOLUME and/or INTENSITY pots
  9. Bad Main Board

All of these things can be fixed with various degrees of service work and correct replacement parts, and just for the record, the Dr hasn't lost a patient yet!

If your Uni-Vibe needs service I would recommend you send it to me so I can have a look at it and assess it's needs and repair options, then give you a proper repair estimate.

If you ship me your Uni-Vibe and decide you would rather not move forward, don't worry, it's all good, I will ship your Uni-Vibe back to you at no charge for the diagnosis service you only pay shipping. That's the best offer I can make for vintage Uni-Vibe owners, I'm always happy to have a look at these old unit's as they are perhaps my favorite vintage effect.

 

These are the four main areas on a Uni-Vibe circuit board that commonly need servicing:

 

We can fully service and repair your vintage Uni-Vibe, Vibra Chorus, Roto-Vibe, Resley Tone, Phase Tone, or Nomad Verberola. From a simple bulb replacement, to a re-cap job, all the way to full-on circuit board replacements. We do re-bias/calibration (like if your bulb was recently replaced and now it doesn't sound right), we do foot controller repairs, DIN plug/socket repairs, we can implement fully reversable mods to your vibe if you want that, and in most cases we can de-mod previously modified vibe's for restoration purposes.

Send me an email and we can discuss your Uni-Vibe issues and concerns.

We offer replacement speed controllers which are totally compatible with vintage (Shin-Ei) Uni-Vibe's, correct pot, the pedal has the rock-back "heel" cancel function where the box has a stomp-switch cancel, and cable with correct 5-pin (DIN) connector which plugs right into your vintage Uni-Vibe.
