The pedal features three knobs for Depth, Rate, and Volume, and its creation was inspired by the 1961 Fender Twin Amp.

Catalinbread has announced the release of the Pareidolia Harmonic Mesmerizer pedal. The pedal's development began over a year ago and was inspired by the 1961 Fender Twin Amp.

The controls are simple, but powerful. The Depth control is able to go from just a slight shimmer in your sound to undulating ocean waves. The Rate ranges from molasses slow phase sweeps to lush tremolo and skittery chops. The Volume controls the loudness and was designed to pull double duty as a fantastic boost when the Depth is off.

Like most other Catalinbread pedals, the Pareidolia was designed for both 9v and 18v operation, the latter giving a more pronounced up-front sound to the effect. The pedal creates a mesmerizing type of effect from its complex modulation. Unlike most other modulation pedals it is less picky in its placement with other pedals. Whether the Pareidolia is placed pre-dirt, post-dirt, or sandwiched between, the pedal's sound is not affected.

MSRP: $199.99

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
