About Vibrato Pedals
From a subtle, vocal glide to a cartoonish wobble, there’s a certain, simple charm about vibrato pedals. They are one of the most basic types of modulation, bending a note in and out of tune in a steady, continuous way. Every human voice has natural vibrato, so this effect used subtly gives your guitar tone a warm, organic sound. It is also reminiscent of the slightly wonky sound of old tape used in tape machines. Players also enjoy cranking the effect to create wild, synth-like tones.
Vibrato pedals and chorus pedals often come in the same unit. This is because they are essentially the same effect except that chorus includes the dry, unaffected signal as well. Pedals that include both effects allow you to select waveforms. Vibrato pedals tend to use the subtler sine wave and chorus pedals tend to use the more pronounced triangle wave.
Popular vibrato pedals include the TC Electronic Shaker and the Dunlop Univibe.
