Magnetic Effects have announced the Satellite, a dynamic, low to medium gain overdrive and boost that retains the tonal characteristics of your guitar and amp. The UK-based company claim their latest creation is "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 configure for an even frequency response or used to smooth the top end and tighten up the low end when needed.
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.
