News: Catalinbread reveal the new Katzenkönig distortion pedal

Catalinbread has just realesed the new Katzenkönig distortion pedal.

Catalinbread says that the Katzenkönig is based on the best elements of a Tone Bender MkII fuzz and a Rat distortion, with names like that being thrown in the mix we can’t wait to get our hands on one.

More official info below:

Catalinbread is proud to introduce the new Katzenkönig distortion pedal. It is now shipping, and available to all Catalinbread dealers and distributors worldwide.

The Katzenkönig combines the best elements of a Tone Bender MkII fuzz and a Rat distortion. The circuit is all-discrete, using a trio of silicon transistors in a modified Tone Bender MkII arrangement with the output section of a Rat, including its clipping section, filter, and output buffer. The result is a pedal that we tuned to offer a huge range of response – from a really beautiful singing tone, to tight, harmonically-rich crunch, all the way to fuzz mayhem.
