Catalinbread has announced that their latest pedal, the Octapussy, is now available.
The Octapussy is an octave-up fuzz in the tradition of the Octavia but is an original circuit designed by Howard Gee, utilizing 3 silicon transistors and two diodes.
The Octapussy was designed to be responsive to your guitar and playing, the company says. Catalinbread says "achievable tones range from sweet, breathy, delicate octave-up melodies to epic soaring leads that bloom as you hold a bend to or massively huge grinding, industrial-strength power chords."
The Octapussy has three controls. Gain: This control increases the gain for more fuzz, harmonics, and upper-midrange frequency boost. It is voiced to be usable throughout its range from minimum all the way to maximum.
The Body control increases bass response and like the Gain knob, it also increases output and harmonic content. The Attenuate control is designed to be set full counter-clockwise. For best tone and response, only attenuate when you’ve got the Gain and Body knobs really cranking and need to reduce the output some, the company recommends.
Pricing & Availability:
The pedal is available now at a price of $179.99.
