News Catalinbread WIIO

The WIIO is an overdrive, which, according to the manufacturer, is inspired by the "powerfully unforgiving British amps from the '70s."

Like the amps, the WIIO has a wide freq spread so if your amp can deliver you’ll be rewarded with crisp clear highs and a very full tight low end, the company says.

The EQ controls on the WIIO are interactive with the Gain knob—increasing the Treble will give you more highs but also more grit to the gain. Likewise, increasing the Bass control will not only deliver more lows but will also alter the feel and attack.

Here is what Catalinbread had to say:

“The whole point of the WIIO experience is the dynamic interaction between you and the pedal. It reacts immediately to your picking hand, so cleans are easily attainable just by lightening up your attack. Conversely, you can get to the raging power chord stuff just by hitting the guitar harder. Running the WIIO at full gain will give you pushed transformer-style saturation for leads as well, so in reality you can have three levels of gain available just by using your wrist and your guitar’s volume control. It was designed to be intuitive with a minimum of tweaking, freeing you to follow your inspiration to wherever it takes you.”

AVAILABLE: Monday, February 15th 2010

MSRP:
$179
