Catalinbread CB Overdrive Pedal

An overdrive that gets right to the harmonic point, Catalinbread's CB Overdrive pedal offers an amp-like overdrive tone on the verge of distortion.

All the way back when electric amplification was invented, what Catalinbread now knows as "overdrive" was an unwanted byproduct of low-headroom amplifiers. Despite giving you the freedom to do so, product manuals sternly instructed against turning the amp's volume knob up past a certain level, lest the amp distort. Amp manufacturers released bigger and bigger amps to allow for more volume without distortion. Eventually, everyone came to their senses and realized that amp overdrive was not only desirable, but cool. The only problem was that you had to y'know, turn your amp up to ear splitting levels. This is where the CB Overdrive comes in. Catalinbread's one-knob overdrive is internally fixed to sit right in the mix, giving you amp-like breakup regardless of where the volume is set. If you're looking for a no-nonsense rock machine, the CB Overdrive delivers regardless of skill level.

- Series Overview:
Few things in life can compare to plugging in a guitar and playing your go-to riff on a gear setup that just works. Regardless of skill level or technical chops, or sheer amount of gear, this is a feeling whose greatness is 100 percent agreed upon. Whether you have a rig with two amps, 30 pedals or just one, there is something to be said about turning on and rocking without having to twiddle hundreds of knobs every time. While Catalinbread can't streamline the amp setup process for you or take the guesswork out of your existing pedals, Catalinbread can give you the next best thing: read more a series of stompboxes that have just one knob for a streamlined setup process, giving you that feeling of satisfaction each and every time you plug in. However, don't be fooled by the simplicity; each circuit was designed and internally set to the sweet spot so you only have to worry about the volume level, just bring your amp and guitar. Each CB pedal is designed to work with a variety of amps of all costs and wattages, ensuring compatibility with whatever you're rocking. Like the rest of Catalinbread pedals, each CB device is hand-built right in Catalinbread's shop using the same high-quality through-hole parts as everything else. Whether you've been playing for three months or thirty years, the CB was designed for those that care about tone and don't care to read an entire manual to get the show on the road.
