Following the release of the new single and video “Dehumanise” from their new album Eye To Eye, The Datsuns’ have announced the release of a limited edition Eye To Eye all-analog phaser pedal produced in collaboration with London-based boutique effects creator Magnetic Effects, which is run by London-based Datsuns lead guitarist Christian.
Magnetic Effects‘ own announcement reads thusly:
“Magnetic Effects are pleased to release the Eye To Eye. A limited edition all analog phaser pedal produced in collaboration with New Zealand band The Datsuns to celebrate the release of their new album also titled Eye To Eye.
“The Eye To Eye is a 4 stage OTA-based phaser capable of many shades of phase including slow and swirly though to fast and intense.
“The versatile control set includes a MIX control which changes the ratio of dry to wet signal. This allows the pedal to blend between dry, phased and vibrato settings. At minimum, you will hear only the dry signal. Set it to noon for equal parts dry and wet, the traditional Phaser setting, and set it to maximum for 100% wet resulting in pitch vibrato.
“The SPEED control has a wide speed range which is extended further via the three way RATE toggle switch which selects the overall speed range of modulation. The middle switch position disables the LFO to enable the Eye To Eye to act as a stationary filter.
“The range of frequencies the phase sweeps through is controlled by the SWEEP control. Set low for a narrow range and a less dramatic effect, or higher for a wider range resulting in a more pronounced phaser effect.
“The REGEN control produces a more mellow, subtle phase at lower settings and, at higher settings, adds a more pronounced and resonant phase effect.
“A VOLUME control allows you to compensate for any perceived volume difference that can occur when using a phaser. It also allows for a boost in output level for solos.
“Each Eye To Eye pedal is hand built by Christian in London, England.”
