Catalinbread Unveils the Tribute Overdrive

Catalinbread Unveils the Tribute Overdrive

An all-gain parametric overdrive that offers flexible tone control and a high-headroom drive engine.


The Tribute is an all-analog circuit that combines expressive high-headroom drive engine with powerful and flexible tone control. The back end of the Tribute pays homage to one of Catalinbread's oldest designs, the VariOboost. This circuit offers a supercharged one-band parametric EQ in lieu of a tone control for studio-esque tone sculpting power.

Playing rhythm? Dial in a low-mids grunt and boost that band for some fat chords. Playing leads? Flip that thing and inject some sparkle into your sound. Want to fake a cocked wah pedal to nail your cover of “Money for Nothing”? Want to simulate some Peter Green-esque out-of-phase pickups? Want your single-coils to sound like humbuckers? What about the other way around? Sure, why not?

The Tribute is out now and available for $179.99 at participating retailers and catalinbread.com.
