The Magnatone brand was first established in 1937 in Los Angeles, CA. The company is most famous for inventing and patenting the stereo pitch-shifting vibrato effect using a non-moving part. Legendary artists like Buddy Holly, Lonnie Mack and Robert Ward have all used Magnatone.
Today, Magnatone manufactures high-end, boutique tube guitar amplifiers that are made in the USA and played by such guitarists as Billy Gibbons, Jeff Beck, Neil Young and Jason Isbell. Many of the current Magnatone models still feature their famous pitch-shifting vibrato effect as well as tremolo and reverb.
