Magnetic Effects Unveils the White Atom MKII

An updated version of the White Atom fuzz with silicon and germanium transistors.

London, England (October 13, 2015) -- Magnetic Effects is pleased to release the White Atom MKII. An updated version of our popular White Atom fuzz which features Silicon and Germanium transistors.

The MKII version of the White Atom features an updated circuit design. The Texture control has an improved range and response while the Tone control has been tweaked for a superior response. Input and Output jacks and DC socket are now top mounted.

There are four controls: Volume, Gain, Tone and Texture. The Texture control changes the feel and response of the fuzz. When used in combination with the Tone and Gain controls a wealth of tones from vintage style overdrive to velcro like saturated fuzz are available.

The White Atom has a high input impedance and a low output impedance. This makes the pedal, unlike many fuzz pedals, compatible with buffered bypass pedals as well as pedal switchers and wireless systems. It also allows the pedal to interact well with modulation and time based effects.

All these features add up to make the White Atom a great sounding AND easy to use fuzz that integrates well into a modern pedal board.

Features:

  • Top mounted jacks and DC socket
  • Volume, Tone, Gain and Texture controls
  • Tested and selected Silicon and Germanium transistors
  • High input impedance and low output impedance
  • True bypass switching
  • 9V DC adapter or battery powered
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • 100% Handmade

£105 plus shipping.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
