    Product Description

    Ritchie Blackmore is a rock 'n' roll trailblazer. His virtuosic playing style and electrifying guitar tones have influenced generations of players, with many adoring fans fastidious about capturing his signature sound. That's why Catalinbread has recreated the tools that inspired Blackmore with its Dreamcoat preamp and Skewer treble booster pedals — designed to closely emulate the unique gear that Blackmore used to achieve his distinctive Deep Purple guitar tone.

    Both featuring incredible artwork, the two stompboxes can be operated individually but really come to life when used together — culminating in a classic sound for the modern era!

    Dreamcoat Preamp/Overdrive

    Catalinbread's Dreamcoat has the near-exact specs of the Aiwa TP-1011 reel-to-reel preamp that Blackmore used, with some extra features that make it a "multi-dimensional gain machine" — in Catalinbread's own words. It can be an unruly, velcro-y and sputtery beast, but one that can be tamed at low levels for a more classic rock vibe.


    • FREQ: This affects the amount of boost at a specified frequency band by up to 10dB, ranging from 2.4KHz to 5KHz, which you set with the internal trimmer.
    • BLEND: Blends the signal coming out of the Freq control with the Aiwa deck circuit. Nudge it south-of-max to gain back some of your pick attack, and turn it all the way down to hear just the EQ’d dry signal.
    • SAT: Controls the amount of feedback present in the first stage of the Aiwa unit. You can think of it as a "gain range" control.
    • MIC VOL: This is the original "distortion" control of the Aiwa deck and influences the total distortion of the circuit.
    • MASTER: You know what this does! As you adjust the Blend control, you may need to turn this up to compensate.
