BBE

A newly redesigned rotary speaker simulator with tons of style and unbelievable tone.

The Soul Vibe, winner of the Guitar World Platinum Award, is back with a new look that really suits the “vibe” of this delicious pedal. Countless guitarists claim that Soul Vibe is the most convincing of analog rotary simulators, delivering on that Leslie experience complete with slight pitch changes as the horn comes and goes. Now Soul Vibe looks as sweet as it sounds. Check out that delicious root beer metallic finish, inspired by the warm, wood finished cabinet of a Leslie. Crème brownface amp knobs are the perfect complement, adding to the visual warmth, while the matching crème logo script puts this gorgeous new Soul Vibe in a class all its own. Just imagine plugging into this pedal and doing your best Gilmour or Trower licks. Yeah, we thought you’d like that.

What hasn’t changed is the Soul Vibe’s commitment to an authentic rotary experience with the convenience, reliability and durability you’ve come to expect from BBE, including 1% metal-film resistors and true hardwire bypass. If rotary is your vibe, get a Soul Vibe and discover that heaven is still in heavy rotation.

      Comments about BBE Soul Vibe Rotary Speaker Simulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

      BBE/Dunlop recommends this goes before your 'dist./pre-amp', but if you have an efx-loop, it works better there in my experience. I already use a Fulltone Mini Deja-Vibe3 (with the gas-pedal control for 'Speed'), so I didn't expect this SoulVibe to be a better vibe than that one (I got this to go an another, smaller p-board than my stage-rig). If you like a little modulation, just not as heavy-handed as a flange/phase, this works great. Wind up the Intensity and you'll hear the 'horn' whooshing around. There are some really cool sounds on different settings, but you'll need to reach down and re-adjust it each time....I'm totally spoiled on my Deja-Vibe; I'm only keeping this 2-knob BBE to save space on my back-up p-board. To me, this is superior to the VoodooLab 2-knobber I tried, and, like I said, a decent vibe is all the 'modulation' I need. If this unit had even a jack for one's own exp. pedal to change 'Speed' in real time it would be as useful as a Uni or Deja. Anyhow, I think this is the best of the smaller 2-control vibes out there. If you're able/willing to spend more--and have more room on your board--see my review (on this site) of the Fulltone Mini Deja-Vibe3 and decide for yourself. Hope this helps.

        Comments about BBE Soul Vibe Rotary Speaker Simulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I really like this pedal! BBE has changed the looks, and it is an improvement. The old model had the cartoon graphics which I can gladly do without. The new one is very attractive with a sort of metal flake root beer enamel finish and two creme-colored knobs for speed and intensity. It has a bright LED that lets you know when it is engaged, and pulsates in relation to the speed. It has a rugged metal on/off switch that makes a mechanical clicking sound when stepped on, but does not interfere with the signal. This pedal is a true bypass Leslie rotary simulator and sounds amazingly like a vintage Univibe. BBE has decided not to provide a power adapter with their new models, but they do include a 9 volt battery. The Soul Vibe draws 200mA of power. My only complaint is the smelly rubber backing on the bottom of the unit. I'm hoping that it will dissipate with time. I don't think that I will use this pedal for most songs, as I mostly use a compressor and a delay. But it certainly will have its place for many desired effects and certain songs. I can't imagine ever wanting to sell it. It has great tone and is highly recommended. But only you can decide if it fits your style of music.

            I have BBE's original with the reclining "Dude" on the pedal. Same thing as this, it has a lush Leslie rotary tone. It adds a wonderful layer of texture to your sound. I am totally happy with this BBE pedal and will always keep it.

            Comments about BBE Soul Vibe Rotary Speaker Simulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I use this as a Leslie simulator and while the sound is good it flavors my guitar tone even when switched off. If you used it as your only effect it would be fine but I placed on the recommended place on my pedalboard but unfortunately I am going to have to remove it completely.
