Catalinbread has become a respected brand in the tight-knit guitar pedal community. With a robust range of pedals, Catalinbread has garnered fans from all over the globe for their modern approach to some classic circuits.
Harkening from Portland, Oregon, this US-based company is made up of a small team of creatives looking to really push the envelope. Since 2003, this boutique brand has established a strong lineup, with plenty of diversity between their stompboxes.
Key contenders in their range includes the Galileo Drive and Octapussy Fuzz, giving you Brian May and Jimi Hendrix-inspired sounds respectively. There’s also the Belle Epoch Delay, a near-exact reproduction of the iconic Echoplex tape echo units, but without the hassle of real tape!
It’s therefore clear that Catalinbread are aware of their influences, but their products offer all of the flexibility you’d expect to meet the demands of modern players.
