        ** i was under the impression that this was a fuzz with both lower
and higher octaves, no way affiliated with trem or vibrato.

        ** the doppelganger is a dual oscillator phase shifter which can do
some vibrato stuff. lovetone also made the wobulator which was their
dual-oscillator trem.

        other uni-vibe clones would be the prescription electronics vibe
unit, and the fulltone deja vibe (both version 1 and 2). most of these will
say that they're chorus/vibrato pedals, not trem (and they do vibrato, not
trem). fulltone makes a trem (supa-trem) which is really good, presc. elec.
makes the throb (also pretty cool).
