London-based pedal maker Magnetic Effects has unveiled the Eye To Eye, an all-analog phaser pedal developed in partnership with New Zealand hard rockers The Datsuns.
Named after the band's most recent album of the same name, the Eye To Eye is a four-stage OTA-based phaser boasting a comprehensive set of controls, including Regen, Speed, Mix, Level and Sweep.
Regen is essentially a feedback control – allowing the user to dial in extra resonance and intensity as the signal is regenerated through the circuit – Sweep adjusts the range of frequencies that are affected by the phaser, Speed controls the, well, speed of the phasing, and Mix and Level tweak the wet/dry balance and volume, respectively.
There's also a three-way toggle switch, which sets the range of the Speed control. If set to the middle position, the pedal's LFO is disabled, meaning the player can use it as a stationary filter pedal.
Other features include top-mounted jacks for maximum pedalboard real estate efficiency, high input impedance and low output impedance, a 1/4" jack for a tap tempo switch and true bypass switching.
The Eye To Eye is available now for $189, with orders shipping August 2. For more information, head to Magnetic Effects (opens in new tab).
