A little beast with a big sound
RaduG, 22.12.2020
Great pedal for recreating 70s hard rock and metal sounds. As the name implies, it delivers a crisp and thick Sabbath sound. It emulates Tony Iommi's sound very well but can also be used to recreate some Led Zep tones, even Queen, if you add a compressor to it, to make it sound smoother, as the original sound is mainly brash (but not at all unpleasant).
PRO: sound & size. the pedal is smaller than the typical BOSS pedal. Furthermore, the knobs are high quality and you can dial pretty much every tone with them. Nice touch naming the volume knob "VOL4". Well played, Catalinbread.
CONS: the price, but I guess you expect it to be expensive. It really shines though and is worth the money. Another CON is that it can get noisy, if not setup correctly or if the pedal chain isn't well though out, for example if you have another distorsion/overdrive pedal wired in.
That being said, if you really want/need to sound like Tony Iommi, this is the pedal for you.

Great pedal for classic metal and 70's style rock
Sebasgitaar, 03.11.2020
The name of this pedal makes it clear what it wants to sound like.
It does a good job recreating the Sabbath sound and some other classic overdrive sounds such as a Led Zeppelinesque sound. You just have to make sure you have a decent power supply, a decent cable, and that you know where to place this pedal among your overdrive/distortion pedals because it can get noisy.

Många ljudvariationer, bråkig på pedalbordet.
Stefan7672, 26.08.2019
Jaha, denna pedal såg jag verkligen fram emot och visst, den låter ju som tidiga sabbath, och mycket mer. Det går att ratta fram alla möjliga och omöjliga doom och stoner ljud, och även lite standard heavy metalljud. Men aj vad kinkig den är när det gäller att stacka den med andra pedaler. Att kombinera med boost, overdrive, wahwah eller annat leder till trassel och skitljud. Catalinbread kallar sina pedaler för "foundation pedals" - något att bygga sitt ljud runt, men jag säger tvärtom, det går utmärkt att bygga sitt ljud tills den dag man försöker addera den här. Jag skickade tillbaka den. För mig är den alldeles för "egen" och bråkig.
