Catalinbread's first year exhibiting at NAMM brings three new pedals to their product line.

Nautilux Chorus - Vibrato

  • All analogue utilising high voltage MN3007 bucket brigade chips
  • Tap tempo capable.
  • Stereo, dual modulated outputs.
  • Level Control inspired by the classic CE-1
  • Tone circuit enables you to dial shiny airy, to warm and chewy.
  • Mix control allowing you to tune in 100% modulated to 100% dry and everything in between.
  • Independent rate and depth for both modes vibrato and chorus.
  • Vibrato mode is modulated by a sine waveform, chorus is modulated by a triangular waveform, again inspired by the CE1.
  • Expression pedal capable of controlling rates or depths.


  • Three knob octave fuzz.
  • Capable of "delicate octave harmonies, to ripping fuzz tones."
  • Fuzz whether played high on the frets, or chunky power chords.
  • Integration with your guitar's volume/tone controls.
  • Special LED bypass.


Uni-Vibe Inspired "Prototype"

Chief circuit designer Howard Gee and Nicholas Harris began working on their own take on the classic Uni-Vibe about 3 years ago. Here are its main features:

  • Classic Uni-vibe inspired 'vibe'.
  • Independent rate controls for chorus and vibrato modes.
  • Incandescent bulb opto controlled phase shift stages.
  • 'Cancel' function which allows for old school Uni-Vibe 'bypass' sounds.
  • Offset knob allows control over the centre frequency of the vibe.
  • Input knob enables the player to control their input impedance from traditional to high.
  • Volume control.
  • Intensity control.
  • Expression pedal capable of controlling rates.
  • Tap tempo capable.
