Catalinbread Antichthon Otherworldly Oscillating Fuzz Pedal
The Catalinbread Antichthon is one of the oddest pedals we have heard in a long time. In theory this is a fuzz tremolo pedal but in actuality it is a weird and wonderful effect that works along with your guitar volumes knob to deliver some incredible sounds not available anywhere else.
What This Pedal Does
Outside of the volume control you have 3 main controls that set your sound plus your guitars volume knob. The Time and Space knobs don't do any one thing specifically, depending on the position of all the other knobs these will have different functions and will respond in different ways. THis is a pedal you need to spend time exploring to find a sound that suits you. No matter where you place these controls you will have some variation of Tremolo and Fuzz where your volume control sets the tremolo speed and fuzz intensity.
The Gravity control is truly a wondrous thing that delivers something we have never heard before. This acts as a tone generator that responds to your guitars volume control in a weird way that is kind of unexplainable. If you start play while tone generator is one you start to get a really cool sound where your guitar is pushing against this tone.
Normal Fuzz On Top
All of this craziness is fun but sometimes you want something that is a bit more controllable and usable in a studio situation. That is why they also made it so you can control it like a standard high gain fuzz when you really need to.
Here's what Catalinbread say about the Antichthon Fuzz
Tired of effects that behave in the same predictable way- Want something new to spark your songwriting- Want to create crazy new sounds no one has heard before- The Catalinbread Antichthon gives you an entirely new palette of sound and response to work from!
Designed to be controlled from your guitar's volume knob, Antichthon has a multitude of sounds and possibilities that can be broken down into three general categories:
Dynamic fuzz tremolo, "fuzzolo", if you will, where you can alter the speed and the sound of the tremolo by turning your guitar's volume knob. Go from fuzzed-out, intense tremolo sounds, chock full of even-order harmonics, to slow and gentle pulses, just by turning down your guitar's volume knob. Once you've set the controls on the Antichthon, your guitar's volume knob takes over, allowing you to dial in a wide range of amazing textures without touching the pedal.
Dynamic tone-generation that you can play your guitar through. Antichthon can create its own sounds even without you touching a string. But when you do play your guitar you can push and pull against the other-worldly tones Antichthon creates - Tibetan horns from another dimension, galactic dolphins, sub-bass drones that will rattle the foundation, bird calls, dark matter locusts, space cats, and more. You set the controls on Antichthon to create your own new universe. Then you work your guitar's volume knob to travel through it.
Harmonic fuzz drive. Although Antichthon truly is another world, it gives you a wormhole back to something that seems familiar. You can set it to create a beautiful harmonic overdrive that is epic and open sounding, dynamic in response, and never harsh.
