Black Cat Vibe

Black Cat Vibe

Considered by many to be the best Univibe recreation ever made. Current Black Cat Vibe users include Lenny Kravitz, Elliott Randall, Chris Poland, Dave Schools, Mark Cimino, and Gugun Blues Shelter.

  • The Black Cat Vibe was the flagship of the original Black Cat product line. It garnered a reputation among many as the best Univibe recreation ever made, and found its way into the rigs of many well-known players, including Steve Lukather, Michael Landau, and Trey Anastasio. We’ve taken every measure to ensure that the new Black Cat Vibe will sound identical to its legendary predecessor. In addition, we’ve incorporated some improvements that will allow each unit to be more durable, reliable and consistently produced than the originals.

    The original Black Cat Vibe was produced as a half rack space unit. Fred Bonte made these for Bob Bradshaw, who offered them to his clients as the Custom Audio Electronics (CAE) Black Cat Vibe. Though most players these days seem to prefer the stompbox format, we are also offering the Black Cat Vibe as a half-rack unit.
