The MP1 was the smallest of the new Pro Seriesof Magnatones as they fully switched focus from accordions to guitar.

One of the MP1's channel is an instrument input with volume, treble, bas, and reverb controls, while the other is a microphone input with volume and tone controls. The tremolo uses an LDR (like a Ampeg Gemini I) to limit the instrument signal post preamp.
