TopGuitar is proud to announce that the Nuvibe guitar effect pedal from Korg was reviewed in the November issue of the magazine and received a â€śTop Gearâ€ť editorsâ€™ award this month. The products were delivered for review by official Korg distributor in Poland, Mega Music.
Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas, which may serve as reasons for the award:
â€śAfter almost fifty years, Korg decided to resurrect the legendary effect famous from its woodstock sound â€“ the Nuvibe. Reissues of vintage equipment is nothing new, many companies try to bring back the tones from the past. But Korg approached this task from a different angle and instead of offering a more or less faithful copy of the old Nuvibe, decided to cooperate with Fumio Mieda â€“ the original constructor of the effect â€“ and design a new version that will combine the old technology with modern solutions that contemporary guitarists got used to.â€ť
â€śThe effect works equally great with delicate settings that just color up the tone a little bit, as well as with more extreme sounds that allow for total sonic experiment. The real revelation is the possibility to manually define the shape of oscillation wave.â€ť
â€śNuvibe is a very creative sound crafting tool. A broad spectrum of controls and many options of setting the modulation character enable the user of this device to navigate in various musical situations, while providing a very characteristic tone with a taste of rock and roll’s golden era.â€ť
