$0Portland, OR (March 13, 2012) -- Catalinbread has announced their latest pedal, the Octapussy, is now available. The Octapussy is an octave-up fuzz in the tradition of the Octavia but is an original circuit designed by Howard Gee, utilizing 3 silicon transistors and two diodes to take the tradition to the next level! $0 $0 The Octapussy was designed to be extremely responsive to your guitar and playing. Catalinbread says achievable tones range from sweet, breathy, delicate octave-up melodies to epic soaring leads that bloom as you hold a bend to or massively huge grinding, industrial-strength power chords. $0 $0 The Octapussy has three controls. Gain: This control increases the gain for more fuzz, harmonics, and upper-midrange frequency boost. It is voiced to be usable throughout its range from minimum all the way to maximum.$0 $0 The Body control increases bass response and like the Gain knob, it also increases output and harmonic content. The Attenuate control is designed to be set full counter-clockwise. For best tone and response, only attenuate when you’ve got the Gain and Body knobs really cranking and need to reduce the output some.$0 $0 The pedal is available now at a price of $179.99.$0 $0Watch Catalinbread's video demo:$0 $0 $0For more information:$0 Catalinbread$0

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
