JAM pedals

Handmade in Greece, boutique analog guitar & bass pedals, made from the highest quality materials on the market, rare NOS chips, specially selected matched NOS transistors and carbon comp resistors.

All of our pedals are true-bypass, so they don't affect your hard-earned tone. They burst with attitude as all of our stompboxes are hand-painted and decorated, from our in-shop-artists, and no two are alike.

JAM pedals Retrovibe Univibe

Our own take on the greatest Vibe pedal ever made! The original goal was to achieve the sound of a vintage UniVibe, but after getting there, we looked into taking it a few extra steps further!

The RetroVibe is using 4 photocells surrounding a pulsating light source to deliver its very unique and recognizable sound... a thick chorus/vibrato type of effect starting off with a slow watery type swirl gradually becoming more 'alive' as the speed knob is manipulated clockwise resulting in a 'machine-gun' type warble around the 9 o'clock setting. Made with original NOS 2SC828 transistors and carbon comp resistors for a true vintage sound!
