I remember about 10 years ago, Jimmy (who does the demos for EffectsBay.com) was really interested in getting a Fulltone Deja Vibe. I can’t remember what guitarist back then that was riding it, but I remember I thought it was pretty damn cool too. As I’ve stated in the past, I’m a big fan of Fulltone stuff. Love what he puts out, so I wanted to talk about the ‘mini’ DejaVibe.
Here is the official description:
The MDV Mini DejaVibe from Fulltone gives you the vintage experience of a ’60s Univibe—you can’t get more accurate than exact. The Mini DejaVibe delivers that dripping Phase-Chorused tone, the very same effect that made Jimi Hendrix’s “Machine Gun” so epic. The Fulltone pedal comes in a beautiful vintage Cream color with maroon lettering on a sturdy 16-gauge steel housing that measures only 4″ x 5-3/4″.
Now it’s tiny enough to fit on the most cluttered pedalboard, and because of the mini-DV’s unique voltage doubling circuit, you can use any standard 9-volt DC adapter (Fulltone FPS-1 adapter included), and inside the MDV pedal the power is ramped up to the original Univibe’s 18+ volts DC.
The mini-DejaVibe chorus pedal also has a mini-toggle switch to choose between Vintage and Modern settings, allowing for warm original Vintage ’60s Univibe grind and louder, with more output (Modern setting).
Fulltone MDV Mini DejaVibe Vibe/Chorus Pedal Features:
* An exact copy of a vintage 1960s Univibe
* Delivers classic phase-chorus tone
* Modern and Vintage modes
* Vibrato/Chorus Switch
* Volume, Intensity and Speed knobs
* Classic retro looks
* Glass-covered, hermetically sealed photocell
Now for the folks out there that are curious how the mini compares to the older version, I found a good video by gearmanndude.
