Catalinbread RAH Royal Albert Hall Overdrive Pedal

Authentically reproduce the tone stack of Jimmy Page's iconic Hiwatt rig. The RAH is extremely tweakable and very uncompressed for a wide dynamic response.

In January 1970 Led Zeppelin hit the stage of London's historic concert hall, Royal Albert Hall. At this performance Jimmy Page expressed himself masterfully with a broad pallet of tones and GIANT dynamic range. Of course this has a lot to do with Page's playing technique and Gibson Les Paul. His backline amps, custom Hiwatt heads into Marshall cabinets filled the entire hall with a cornucopia of colors at levels ranging from a mouse whisper to rave ups louder than a jumbo jet taking off only inches over your head.

This overdrive effects pedal features the specific three-knob tone circuit straight from the custom Jimmy Page model Hiwatt. Like most traditional amp EQ circuits, the knobs are interactive, meaning turning one can alter the behavior of the other. The magic is getting the Mid and Bass controls dialed in together. Tweak those until you get the right tone for your guitar and amp. You'll notice that the Treble knob is fairly subtle, adding a bit of bite as it is turned up. If you scoop the Mid and turn up the Bass however, the Treble knob will seem a lot more active.

The Catalinbread RAH is designed to deliver guitarists an incredible dynamic range that responds to picking hand and/or volume knob. Like a good amplifier the RAH is VERY uncompressed, which means there is little to hide behind. This pedal is for players who appreciate the rewards and experience of a WIDE dynamic response.

"Catlinbread RAH foundation OD"

Apart from various "demos" on this pedal many already using an LP. It does not reinvent the Page tone but it is a nice foundation stacking OD which I find adds warmth and more amp like tone to an already good tone. My best Pagey tones are using a Pinnacle on vintage around mid on the tones the RAH in front and often a clean boost or another drive in front of the RAH. Killer Pagey stack ranging from cleaner blues to Physical Graffiti tones. Do not presume this pedal alone will give you instant Pagey, it will help but it is a foundation stacking pedal more than a stand alone.
