Seven years since their last release, The Datsuns are back. Their new record, Eye To Eye is classic heavy rock n roll with a twist, and they have now released a custom phaser pedal of the same name.

The Datsuns Eye To Eye Phaser is a limited edition, 4-stage OTA mono phaser pedal. There’s all the classic bells and whistles you’d expect from a phaser too.

The pedal features knobs for Regen, Speed, Level, Mix and Sweep, a flick switch for rate and a True Bypass footswitch.

The flick switch controls low and high phasing frequencies, but when put in the middle position, disables the LFO and the pedal acts as a stationary filter.

This pedal has full dry/wet range through the Mix control, a wide Speed range, broad Sweep functionality and big feedback potential through its Regen control.

Magnetic Effects’ boast the pedal can produce phasing effects from “slow and swirly through to fast and intense”, making it a nice addition to any pedal board.

Each pedal is hand built in London, England by Christian through his Magnetic Effects brand.

The Datsuns new record is out now along with the phasing pedal, and you can check out one of the singles below.
