MAGMA57 authentically recreates the pitch-bending vibrato effect built into the Magnatone® Custom 260 and 280 models from the late 1950s. These top-of-the-range combos featured a unique two-stage vibrato circuit that offered true pitch modulation—unlike the volume-changing tremolo effect built into other amps. For many players it remains the benchmark for lush, organic vibrato.
Going beyond pure pitch modulation, MAGMA57 features two additional Blend modes to create a fascinating range of modulation flavours. When wet and dry signals are combined in-phase, MAGMA57 delivers the classic pseudo-rotary speaker phasing of another benchmark effect: the Univox Uni-Vibe. Summing these signals 180° out-of-phase generates both phasing and amplitude modulation, creating a stunning and unique chorus-type effect. The MAGMA57 also features a TRS footswitch jack for convenient remote control of the vibrato and tap tempo functions.
The MAGMA57’s amp section is inspired by the Magnatone® Model 213 “Troubadour”. Using our Analogue Amp Recreation technology, the MAGMA57 captures the warm clean tones and raw, organic overdrive of this hidden gem. With a semi-passive, semi-active tone control and a tight low end that retains definition when pushed hard, the MAGMA57 delivers the complex, inspiring and dynamically responsive amp tones of this dual-6V6 combo.
The built-in Post-Drive EQ means you don’t have to compromise your favourite amp settings to get the perfect drive sound from the MAGMA57. This proprietary filter lets you tailor the output of the pedal to work with just about any amp, as well as flat-response power amps, cabinet simulators and recording interfaces.
Housed in a hand polished, brushed stainless steel enclosure and furnished with aluminium controls, Neutrik® jack sockets and heavy-duty footswitch, the MAGMA57 is at equally home on the road and in the studio.
