Origin Effects MAGMA57 Amp Vibrato & Drive
The Origin Effects MAGMA57 Amp Vibrato & Drive takes your sound back to the era of the legendary vintage Magnatone amps and offers both their glorious amp tones and their benchmark true pitch-bending vibrato.
Amp style circuit design
The MAGMA57 Amp Vibrato & Drive re-creates a complete amp-style signal path using all discrete analogue circuitry and Origin Effects' Reactive Drive Technology for true dynamic, valve amp-like touch sensitivity and overdrive characteristics. The amp part of the MAGMA57 draws it's inspiration from the magnificent Magnatone Model 213 'Troubadour', a dual 6V6 equipped monster of an amp, that expanded the design behind the one of the most famous and most loved valve amps of all time - the venerable Fender Tweed Deluxe.
The Magnatone Model 213 'Troubadour', and thus the MAGMA57 delivers everything from warm and full cleans to the legendary raw and organic overdrive of a healthy Tweed Deluxe, but it does so with a tighter low end when pushed hard which helps the amp sit better and more well defined in a mix.
True Pitch-Bending Vibrato
The MAGMA57 offers the authentic true pitch-bending vibrato of the Magnatone amps from the late 1950s, which by most guitar player is considered the absolute benchmark in organic, lush vibrato.
For added versatility the MAGMA57's vibrato section has been expanded to also include a multiplier toogle switch (X1, X2 & X3) for the vibrato speed and a toogle switch for blend modes, which offers 2 additional benchmark effect - a classic Univox Uni-vibe effect and a stunning chorus-type effect unique to the MAGMA57.
Powerful Post Overdrive EQ section
The powerful post overdrive EQ section of the Origin Effects MAGMA57 Amp Vibrato & Drive lets you dial in the pedal to match your amp perfectly.
Power Amp Mode
