Magnetic Effects Releases the Satellite

A natural-sounding and dynamic overdrive/booster.

London, England (February 16, 2016) -- Magnetic Effects are pleased to release the Satellite. A natural sounding and dynamic Overdrive/Booster.

The Satellite is a dynamic, low to medium gain overdrive and booster the retains the tonal characteristics of your guitar and amp. The perfect choice if you like the sound of your guitar and amp and are looking for a pedal to add a bit of organic drive or push your amp naturally into breakup.

Along with typical volume and gain controls, the Satellite also offers well balanced and flexible high and low controls, which affect the treble and bass response. The high and low controls can be configured for an even frequency response or used to smooth the top end and tighten up the low end. While the Satellite offers great overdrive tones it also excels as a booster. It stacks well and can provide a great sounding boost. An internal voltage doubling circuit converts the power up to 18V for increased headroom. A high input impedance and low output impedance ensures the Satellite plays well with other pedals in your signal chain. All these features add up to make the Satellite a great sounding and easy to use overdrive/booster that integrates well into a modern pedal board.

Features:

  • Top mounted Jacks and DC socket
  • Volume, gain, high and low control
  • Internal voltage doubler for increased headroom
  • High input impedance and low output impedance
  • True bypass switching
  • PV DC centre negative adapter powered
  • Reverse polarity protection.
  • 100% Handmade

Price: $155 plus shipping

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

​Luther Perkins' 1953 Esquire & a '59 Burst!
Johnny Cash Guitarist Luther Perkins' 1953 Esquire & John Carter Cash's 1959 Gibson Les Paul Burst!

This 1953 Fender Esquire belonged to Luther Perkins, who was a member of Cash’s first recording bands and played on all of the Man in Black’s foundational recordings for Sun Records—likely with this guitar. Perkins played this instrument during the period when Cash classics from “I Walk the Line” to “Folsom Prison Blues” were cut. John Carter Cash bought this 1959 Gibson Les Paul at Gruhn’s in Nashville. It has a neck that is atypically slim for its vintage and appears as part of the psychedelic guitar interplay on the Songwriter song “Drive On.”
