NAMM 2016: Catalinbread Paves the Way For the Future
Monday, 18 January 2016
The effects artists at the American Catalinbread company have a bunch of new effects pedals to help you expand your musical and creative boundaries once again!
For fans of rockabilly and surf music, the Catalinbread Adineko is definitely worth a look. It's a delay pedal that's based on classic oil can echoes such as the 1967 Variable Echo-Reverb. If that's a little too mundane for you, then the new Bicycle Delay might be more your speed. This unusual effect can embellish your guitar sound with subtle echoes, or transform it into something that sounds like a spaceship hovering overhead. Prefer to get your groove on? The Catalinbread CSIDMAN will take your lick and add in surprising and interesting percussive patterns - an idea that stems from old portable CD players, discmans, that skipped a beat.
Catalinbread is known for encasing classic, traditional effects in practical little stomp boxes and effects pedals. A few months ago, for instance, they launched the Fuzzrite, which was based on the legendary Mosrite Fuzzrite. Besides that, there's the Katzenkönig, which has no problem keeping up with the Rat. To be more precise, it's sound is a combination of the Pro Co RAT and the Tone Bender. New this year is the enhanced SFT, which is an Ampeg-style overdrive pedal that now features a Stones/Stoner switch. This gives you access to a wide range of overdrives that all react accurately to all the dynamics in your playing.
