Jim Dunlop Rotovibe JD-4S
One of the few effects Hendrix used, the Uni-Vibe (used by Stevie Ray Vaughan as well). He tried to emulate the Leslie rotary speaker sound of Hammond organs but was not very successful as such. However, it became important as an effect in itself. The Rotovibe Chorus/Vibrato offers what the Uni-Vibe was in an all-in-one pedal: effect + expression control pedal (the Uni-Vibe consisted of those two). It is very interesting for those who seek to impregnate their sound and not make it very subtle. Also to do crazy modulation effect things and be bored with the typical ones.
Worn by Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society, Pride & Glory), Jerry Cantrell (Alice in Chains)…
