GENZLER® AMPLIFICATION proudly announces the long-requested addition of the MAGELLAN PRE/DI PEDAL to our product line of bass effects pedals.

The MAGELLAN® PRE brings the performance and preamp feature set of our popular Magellan series bass amps into a powerful, feature-laden, compact bass preamp/DI pedal. From natural, pristine, transparent reproduction of the bass instrument to classic, vintage harmonic textures with a “weighted feel to the notes”, the MG-PRE-PEDAL provides the tonal palette needed to cover all of the bassist’s tone requirements.

This is exactly what players have come to expect from the GENZLER® design team — performance, versatility, and reliability. This new model continues the collaboration of the GENZLER AMPLIFICATION design team and Andy Field, former Genz Benz engineer. Together they possess decades of innovative audio product design and manufacturing expertise.

  1. Doug Parent

    A quick review after testing this preamp going through the effects return of two bass amps and into a Crown XLS 1500 power amp. PLENTY of signal in either scenario. I have used other preamp pedals this way with varied success. The Magellan preamp/Di has very useful EQ features including a high pass filter which I love having when I need to turn up and don’t want to worry about damaging my drivers with excessive low end rumble. The dual A and B contour feature is brilliant The B contour shines with a Fender style bass that has a wide warm bottom end that sometimes needs more definition.. Also to note I am driving this preamp with a full 18 volt power supply and it’s quiet yet has a very strong output. Also I’m a fan of the single sweepable mid control vs having two separate fixed mid frequency controls. The Treble frequency is not harsh at all, overall a quality tone machine!
