Danish effect manufacturer T-Rex Effects, in partnership with Guitar Center’s Director of Merchandise, Barry Mitchell, announce the new co-developed Magnus boutique tone board available exclusively at Guitar Center stores, Guitar Center online and Musicians Friend online This new pedal will be available for purchase on July 26th, 2013.


Magnus represents a completely new format for the discerning pedal enthusiast who doesn't want to sacrifice portability for flexibility, and most importantly will not settle for sterile, uninspired tone.  Magnus is a collection of five custom designed boutique effect boxes combined in a sleek, intuitive tone board.  Classic T-Rex Overdrive, Distortion, Delay, Reverb, and Boost effects are combined with a built in tuner and other features including two modes of operation: Live and Preset. In Live mode, Magnus lets you switch individual effects on and off and adjust them while you play, as if they were separate Boutique pedals. In Preset mode, you can program up to 10 preset combinations of Magnus' five effects, and then quickly call up entire sonic realms on the fly by clicking a single footswitch, without switching individual pedals on/off.  Street Price:  $399.99


The new Magnus pedal is featured in the Guitar Center August 2013 buyers guide and Musicians Friend August 2013 catalog.
