Magnetic Effects Introduces the Zola and Updates the Electrochop

The Zola is an ultra-high headroom clean boost with a linear response, active EQ, and switchable buffer.

London, England (December 19, 2016) -- Magnetic Effects are pleased to release the Zola.

The Zola is an ultra high headroom clean boost with a linear response, active EQ and switchable buffer.

An internal voltage multiplier internally converts 9V up to 30V for unparalleled headroom.

The incredible 30V of headroom means the boost stays totally clean at all levels and can handle large input signals. It also makes Zola suitable for use as a boost in amp effects loops.

EQ flexibility is provided by the two band active EQ offering Boost and Cut ability to the treble and bass response. Use the EQ controls to fatten or tighten the low end, add presence or smooth the top end or match the EQ response between different instruments.

Over 20db of signal boost give you plenty of boosting ability. The Boost control can also attenuate the signal adding more flexibility. Use it at the end of your signal chain as a level matcher and tone enhancer.

A switchable buffer gives the user the choice of true bypass or a high quality, high headroom buffered bypass when the effect is off.

  • Two Band active EQ
  • Switchable buffered or True Bypass
  • Top mounted Jacks and DC socket

Magnetic Effects are pleased to release the Electrochop. Now updated with top mounted jacks and DC socket.

The Electrochop is a super choppy tremolo that features the classic, unique LFO section from the Vox Repeat Percussion.

A new audio circuit has been designed around the LFO, resulting in a tremolo that sounds like the Repeat Percussion but with a fuller, louder sound and more controls. All the classic throb but with more user friendly features.

Volume, Depth and Speed allow full control of the tremolo parameters. While a toggle switch that widens the overall speed range.

The speed range goes from very slow to crazy fast. At higher speeds the sound morphs into a ring modulator type effect.

The Electrochop has a high input impedance and a low output impedance. This makes the pedal compatible with buffered pedals as well as pedal switchers and wireless systems. The Electrochop uses True Bypass switching.


  • High input impedance and low output impedance
  • Top Mounted Jacks and DC socket
  • True Bypass switching
  • 9V DC centre negative adapter powered
  • Rate Toggle switch
  • Volume, Depth and Speed controls
  • 100% Handmade
