In 2015 we brought you the Unicorn V1 ...the world's first bulb-driven photocell modulator with tap tempo...our very own Uni-Vibe if you will. This Spring 2018 we are proud to bring you the Unicorn V2!

Pink Floyd’s “Breathe,” Jimi Hendrix’s “Star Spangled Banner live at Woodstock 1969," and Robin Trower’s “Bridge of Sighs” cemented the sound of a photocell-based vibe effect as an electric guitar standard. The JHS Pedals Unicorn is our version of this heralded effect, continuing the inspiring modulation/phasing/rotary sounds that never fail to push musical boundaries. And just like the originals, we included a toggle for choosing between a Uni-Vibe* effect and a traditional vibrato setting. What sets Unicorn apart from all other vibe-style circuits is that it is the first-ever fully analog, photocell-based vibe with tap tempo as well as ratio, external tap control, and external rate control via expression pedal (optional). And the Unicorn does it all with only four knobs and a mini-toggle switch. In a day and age when everything has been seen and done, we bring you the first-ever, 100% analog vibe photocell modulator with onboard tap tempo. You’re welcome.

SOUNDS AS GOOD AS YOU REMEMBER
The Unicorn is bursting with all the lush and washy pulsations that changed what the electric guitar could sound like in the 1960s. And this is no digital emulation. The Unicorn sports the real-deal, analog photocell topology of the original units.

  • Sounds like the originals because it’s built like the originals
  • All-analog signal path delivers a warm, touch-sensitive tone
  • Dry/Wet toggle selects between a Uni-Vibe* and vibrato effect


IN-DEPTH TEMPO CONTROL

There are other analog vibe pedals and there are pedals with tap-tempo control, but - if we’re allowed to gloat for a second - the JHS Unicorn is the first to put ‘em together. Add optional external speed control and a ratio knob that determines the rhythmic subdivisions or as we like to say, how much fairy dust enters into the flux capacitor of the Unicorn - and you have one of the most versatile vibe pedals on the market.

  • Control the rate of the effect with the Speed knob or onboard tap-tempo footswitch
  • Want quarter note, dotted eighth, or triplet rhythms? They’re all found on the Ratio knob
  • LED indicator notifies you of the effect’s tempo, even when disengaged


EXTERNAL TEMPO AND EXPRESSION CONTROL

But wait, there’s more! One of the things that makes the vintage Shin-ei* Uni-Vibes* so desirable is your ability to control the effect’s rate in real time with an external expression pedal. How could we not include that!? And to go one step further, you can slave the pedal to other tap-controlled pedals for rhythmic consistency across all your effects.

  • Internal Tap/Expression mini switch controls the side-mounted Tap/Exp TRS jack
  • Expression pedal control of the Unicorn’s rate in the Exp setting
  • Use an external source to control the rate in the Tap Out setting (Works great with our Panther Cub Delay, Emperor Chorus pedals)


COULDN’T BE EASIER TO USE

One of the things we’re most proud of with the Unicorn Uni-vibe* Photocell Modulator is how easy it is to dial up the exact pulse of a mystical Unicorn running across a field of 4-leaf clovers… but only if you dare.

  • Four knobs and a mini toggle are all you need for a world of syrupy, modulated tones
  • Left two controls are your tone, right two controls are your speed, toggle is your effect. It’s that simple


WHAT'S NEW IN THE V2?

The original Unicorn sounds great and works perfectly, so we didn't change a thing about it other than: its now half the size, and its a lower price point!

When everything has been done and everything has been seen, we bring you a first ever 100% analog signal path Uni-vibe* Photocell Modulator w/ Tap Tempo.

THIS PEDAL REQUIRES STANDARD 9V DC NEGATIVE POWER, CONSUMES 100MA, AND MEASURES 2.2”X4.8"X1.6".

Vintage Uni-vibe Tone with Modern Tempo Control
The JHS Unicorn V2 Analog Uni-vibe pedal takes the rich, syrupy sound of the original Unicorn pedal and packs it into a smaller enclosure to free up more room on your pedalboard. The Unicorn V2 combines a vintage photocell modulator with a modern tap tempo function, giving you access to classic vibe effects with hands-free tempo control. No more dialing in close-enough speeds — now you can get the perfect tempo every time. The thick, swirling tones of the JHS Unicorn V2 deliver the unmistakable sound of a classic Uni-vibe. The Speed knob lets you dial in precise 1/4 note, 1/8 note, dotted 1/8 note, and triplet rhythms. Add the classic Uni-vibe sound to your rig with the JHS Unicorn V2.

Vintage tone and modern tempo control
The JHS Unicorn V2's all-analog circuitry and photocell modulator deliver glorious vintage-vibed tones that digital just can't conjure. A detented Speed knob lets you dial in precise 1/4 note, 1/8 note, dotted 1/8 note, and triplet rhythms unavailable in most vibrato/chorus pedals. Use the Unicorn V2's expression/tap tempo jack to control the speed remotely and precisely. And guitarists at Sweetwater love that you can even control the tempo via other pedals like the Panther Cub Delay, or take control of other pedal's tempo setting with the Unicorn V2.

When you plug your guitar into a JHS pedal like the Unicorn V2, you're tapping into care and passion that few manufacturers put into their products. Each JHS pedal is handbuilt and tested by the JHS team in Kansas City, Missouri.
