Catalinbread Antichthon Fuzz Tremolo
The Catalinbread Antichthon is an other-worldly tone-generating fuzz tremolo that truly defies classification. The "Antichthon" refers to the ancient Greek idea that there was a "Counter-Earth", 180 degrees opposite of Earth, but un-seeable since it was always on the opposite side of the "Central Fire" from Earth. Today, that notion sounds quaint and ridiculous. But if such a planet did indeed exist, what was it like? Was it a mirror-image world where everything was the opposite of our world?
Welcome to the Catalinbread Antichthon, where nothing behaves as you expect it to. Where your guitar's volume knob suddenly becomes a way to dial in strange new vistas of sound. Where your guitar's volume knob makes things speed up or slow down, as your guitar pulsates like some strange new quasar. Where huge chords, laden with harmonics, give way to undulating tremblings.
Catalinbread wanted to create something really different. They wanted to give you a big bang for your creative impulses. Behold Antichthon.
Travel to alternate universes, by simply twisting your guitar's volume knob.
Tired of effects that behave in the same predictable way? Want something new to spark your songwriting? Want to create crazy new sounds no one has heard before? The Catalinbread Antichthon gives you an entirely new palette of sound and response to work from!
Get an overview of the Catalinbread Antichthon Tone-Generating Fuzz Tremolo Pedal in this video demo:
Designed to be controlled from your guitar's volume knob, Antichthon has a multitude of sounds and possibilities that can be broken down into three general categories:
1. Dynamic fuzz tremolo, "fuzzolo", if you will, where you can alter the speed and the sound of the tremolo by turning your guitar's volume knob. Go from fuzzed-out, intense tremolo sounds, chock full of even-order harmonics, to slow and gentle pulses, just by turning down your guitar's volume knob. Once you've set the controls on the Antichthon, your guitar's volume knob takes over, allowing you to dial in a wide range of amazing textures without touching the pedal.
2. Dynamic tone-generation that you can play your guitar through. Antichthon can create its own sounds even without you touching a string. But when you do play your guitar you can push and pull against the other-worldly tones Antichthon creates - Tibetan horns from another dimension, galactic dolphins, sub-bass drones that will rattle the foundation, bird calls, dark matter locusts, space cats, and more. You set the controls on Antichthon to create your own new universe. Then you work your guitar's volume knob to travel through it.
3. Harmonic fuzz drive. Although Antichthon truly is another world, it gives you a wormhole back to something that seems familiar. You can set it to create a beautiful harmonic overdrive that is epic and open sounding, dynamic in response, and never harsh.
