The Magnavibe was inspired by the early 1960's vibrato guitar effect (not the typical tremolo which is just pulse modulation). The Magnatone amp was known for having that amazing wobbly sound. Setting out to put that type of sound in a box and use it with any amp took much experimenting. The results are excellent. This is not a plain one dimensional vibrato such as a chorus pedal with the dry mix removed. Delay chips weren't even used back then. Nor is it just another uni-vibe clone, but a unique sound with that classic unique tone. Adding spring reverb or delay after the vibrato sounds especially good. Check out the sound clips in the menu. Definitely sample the youtube and sound clips with medium to big stereo speakers (tiny pc speakers will not reveal the huge wobbly throb this effect can achieve). The controls are 'depth' and 'speed'. The knobs have been placed in a way that you can easily adjust them with your feet. The circuit is all analog and is true-bypass. The electronics are hand wired. Only high quality components used. Much care is taken to make sure each unit sounds consistently the same. The finish is a powder-coat , plus baked on logo/print. The LED is a clear yellow with a wide viewing angle. It can be powered by a 9V battery or 9V adapter. The power jack's center is negative and is the typical barrel size.

The Spaghetti Western Fuzz pedal has been very carefully tuned to get maximum buzz and honk which is very reminiscent of the 1960's era pop music, surf music, and spaghetti western sound tracks. So it is not your typical fuzzface or bigmuff types. Those are smooth sounding fuzz effects with a totally different feel and tone. It's closer to the sound of the earlier fuzzes like the fuzzrite, companion fuzz, and others. The effect sounds best with single coils and weak humbuckers. There are two controls, volume and fuzz. The fuzz control is not just a gain knob. It also changes between types of fuzz. At minimum (7:00) achieves a very honky, horn-like fuzz tone. Listen to clip 4 (sound clips in menu) . At maximum there is more gain and buzz. Turning the knob all the way to 5:00 is as buzzy as an angry bee! On clip 1 the knob was turned to about 3:00 and the guitar volume to about 9.5. Much of the overall gain can be controlled by lowering your guitar volume slightly. The sound gets interesting when turning the knob to about 11:00-11:30. This is where you can hear an upper octave effect. Especially when using the neck pickup and playing high up on the neck. Listen to clip 3. You can hear that the transistors have been biased perfectly. No blatty, gated fuzz here. on clips 2 & 5 the fuzz knob has been placed to 2:00.

This crunch box sounds humongous. If your looking for a huge sound try the Humongous Box. The tone sounds amazing and very pleasing. It's a new unique design and not just a modified clone. The gain knob is usable in all positions...from subtle distortion at minimum to huge smooth fuzz at max. Also, there is plenty of volume to play with. Turning the guitars volume down to about 9 has a distorted tone, while up full it's more reminiscent of fuzz. Listen to sound clips (sound clips in menu)
