CB Series (Overdrive, Distortion, Fuzz)

Catalinbread
$150 Each

Few things in life can compare to plugging in a guitar and playing your go-to riff on a gear setup that just works. Regardless of skill level or technical chops, or sheer amount of gear, this is a feeling whose greatness is 100 percent agreed upon. Whether you have a rig with two amps, 30 pedals or just one, there is something to be said about turning on and rocking without having to twiddle hundreds of knobs every time. While we can’t streamline the amp setup process for you or take the guesswork out of your existing pedals, we can give you the next best thing: a series of stompboxes that have just one knob for a streamlined setup process, giving you that feeling of satisfaction each and every time you plug in. However, don’t be fooled by the simplicity; each circuit was designed and internally set to the sweet spot so you only have to worry about the volume level, just bring your amp and guitar. Each CB Series pedal is designed to work with a variety of amps of all costs and wattages, ensuring compatibility with whatever you’re rocking. Like the rest of our pedals, each CB Series device is hand-built right here in our shop using the same high-quality through-hole parts as everything else. Whether you’ve been playing for three months or thirty years, the CB Series was designed for those that care about tone and don’t care to read an entire manual to get the show on the road.
