Catalinbread Mechanisms of Music
The North-west of America has a long and distinguished association with musical innovation and is
where, a stone’s throw from the birthplace of grunge; the Guitar FX Direct research squirrels
discovered the stunning Catalinbread Effects Company.
Founded in 2003 in Portland, Oregon, Catalinbread Effects is a company which bleeds innovation,
imagination and inspiration.
Catalinbread hand builds effects to exacting standards dedicated to perfecting tone for guitarists of
all abilities. This approach has secured Catalinbread Effects awards and plaudits for exceptional build
quality and performance so Guitar FX Direct are more than a little excited to offer a buttered slice of
Catalinbread Effects pedals.
Coming from the heartland of the US west coast music scene, it is hardly a surprise to find evocative
overdrives from Catalinbread. Pedals which echo classic blues tones and somewhat more sublime
grunge darkness; ranging from the Dirty Little Secret’s classic Marshall repro to Tweed in a box from
the Formula and everything in between.
For those who like their bread a little dirtier, resonant and harmonic fuzz from the Heliotrope or the
erotically charged Karma Suture add the twist of a knife to the speaker cone. It can be hard to find
well imagined variations on the classics but Catalinbread have dug deep and with spectacular results.
For guitarists who like to experiment, Catalinbread’s impressive range of mods, delays and reverbs
offer a few twists on classic effects while maintaining that dedication to rich tone and full-bodied
