Origin Effects MAGMA57 Amp Vibrato & Drive Pedal

Amp vibrato and drive pedal with true pitch-modulating vibrato, reactive overdrive design for authentic sound and playing feel plus a comprehensive post-drive EQ section to seamlessly match to your amp

MFR# OEX-0018-00

Product Description

Combine lush, shimmering vibrato with a smooth, clear overdrive tone and you’ve got a sound that has inspired both legendary guitarists and renowned amp designers. The Origin Effects MAGMA57 brings the best of the Magnatone 200 Series amplifiers to your pedalboard—delivering everything from warm, jazzy clean tones to full-on swirling psychedelia.

WHEN IS VIBRATO REALLY VIBRATO?

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.

FINEST BLEND

Going beyond pure pitch modulation, MAGMA57 features two additional Blend modes to create a fascinating range of modulation flavors. 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 chorus-type effect unique to MAGMA57.

A WINNING COMBO

MAGMA57 ’s amp section is inspired by the Magnatone Model 213 ‘Troubadour’. A true hidden gem, this dual-6V6 combo expands on the blueprint of the Tweed Deluxe by gently reining in the low end and adding a unique semi-passive, semi-active tone control. The result is an amp that delivers the raw, organic overdrive of the Deluxe, but with a tighter low end that retains definition when pushed hard. MAGMA57 features a complete valve amp-style signal path recreated with discrete analogue circuitry, and uses Origin Effects’ Reactive Drive technology to deliver complex, dynamically responsive amp tones.

POWERFUL POST-DRIVE EQ

MAGMA57 no-compromise Post-Drive EQ lets you tailor the pedal’s output to suit your amp, ensuring your clean AND overdrive tones always sound their best. MAGMA57 even includes a touring-friendly Power Amp Mode for compatibility with flat-response power amplifiers, so you can keep the show on the road whatever happens.

REMOTE CONTROL

Designed with the touring musician in mind, MAGMA57 features a TRS footswitch jack so you can connect a Tap Tempo switch or a complete effects switching system like the Boss ES5 or TheGigRig G2.

BUILT FOR THE ROAD

Housed in a hand-polished, brushed stainless steel enclosure and furnished with aluminum controls, Neutrik jack sockets and heavy-duty footswitch, MAGMA57 is at home on the road as it is in the studio.

  • True pitch-modulating vibrato

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
