What is MagTraB Switching?

Every Vahlbruch Pedal has a little secret, a brilliant technology that means every time you stomp on it there's no mechanical contact. That means an end to switch clicks and worn out switches!

Inside the button is a magnet, the position of which, is measured by a sensor on the circuit board. If the button is now moved, e.g. if it is pressed downwards, the position of the magnet will also change. The sensor measures this change without any mechanical contact to the button and the information is sent via a micro-controller to a gold-plated relay, which then does the actual audio signal switching.

The advantages:

  • MagTraB buttons are as good as indestructible
  • MagTraB delivers an almost infinite number of switching cycles - many, many millions!
  • No annoying, mechanical switch clicks!
