Catalinbread Releases the Blood Donor to Support the American Red Cross

An updated Katzenkonig with a few new changes.

Portland,OR (March 31, 2020) -- Here at Catalinbread, we’ve been hard at work coming up with any way we can to help our country’s most vulnerable citizens. Our Blood Donor pedal does just that: we pledge to donate 100 percent of all this pedal’s profits to the American Red Cross, along with a little gentle encouragement to give your own blood to the cause.

With that said, our Blood Donor is a revamped and fine-tuned version of our venerable Katzenkonig with a slew of changes that truly unlocks the circuit’s potential. We’ve added a carefully selected transistor set that pushes the boundaries of saturation and gain to their electrical limits, giving the old cat a little more fur and bite. The noise floor has been trimmed while widening the utility of all controls, giving an increased range of input sensitivity that mimics the volume knob on your guitar. Get into it! And give blood!

The Blood Donor goes for $179.99 and starts shipping on April 6th. Pre-orders are available now through participating retailers and Catalinbread.com

The American Red Cross now faces a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during this coronavirus outbreak. Healthy individuals are needed to donate now to help patients counting on lifesaving blood.
