Kingtone Vibe 1968 Details

The Kingtone Vibe 1968 is named after the revered 1968 Honey Vibe. Our mission was to reawaken the exact tone and feel of the original 1968 Honey Vibe, at the same time to add creative controls and features to further expand the tonal capabilities of the vibe.

The Kingtone Vibe 1968 is a game changer. It takes the classic Vibes of the 60s and builds on their features, richness, and usability. Not content with building another clone, Kingtone have created the Kingtone Vibe 1968. It took five years of research and development and offers a unique set of features never seen before in a pedal of this type. Kingtone Vibe 1968 creates the classic and much loved swirling, chewy, phase, chorus and rotating speaker type tones, but adds a host of enhancements. Improvements include a fuller, deeper tonal range, unity or boosted output, two channels, a pedalboard friendly size, and much more.

The two channels can be set completely independently and when switching speeds, the rate and depth will gently ramp between settings, this gives a natural, almost rotary speaker effect. Side A can be set to a fast Leslie type vibrato tone, whereas side B can be dialed in to give a deep, swirling, vibe, chorus setting. You can then switch between them, the speed gently transitioning from one setting to the next. You have a complete set of controls for each channel, this is like two Vibes in one pedal. Insane!
