Catalinbread Formula No. 5
The Catalinbread Formula No. 5 is described as having a "clear buttery top end, stringy but slightly spongy and growly bottom, and greasy sizzling midrange."
The controls are simple – Volume, Gain , and Tone – and like the amps, are interactive. Balancing the Gain control with the Volume allows you to dial in the low end picking response from chunky to loose, the company says. The Tone control adds some sparkle and more grit or fattens up a thin sounding pickup. This arrangement is designed to make dialing it in with a variety of guitars easy.
