Works Great for Blues

GarpaMike, 13.02.2018
I bought this pedal for classic rock but am using it more for blues now in combination with a Boss FRV-1. Gives off a nice sound. Took me awhile to dial in though. I previously used a friends No. 5 which I liked better, but only because it was easier to dial in the sound I like. My intent was to set it and forget it for one sound. For most people this pedal will probably be a better choice due to it's extended versatility.

I really like Catalinbread, They make great pedals. Now that Howard Gee has left Catalinbread, I'm going to have to pick up a few more while the quality is still there. There is no telling what will happen to the company with Howard gone.

A classic Ibanez Tubescreamer or Colorsound Tonebender can fetch many times its original price from guitarists in search of the ultimate killer tone and sustain.
