The team's opinion: The Catalinbread is an upper octave fuzz in the tradition of the Octavia. But the circuit is a little different from its venerable ancestor!
The latter uses 3 silicon transistors and two diodes bringing a welcome personality and going off the beaten track! Its preamp section has been designed to give you extremely dynamic playing response. You'll get those famous terrifyingly Hendrixian octavisted tones, but also get an incredible variety of fuzz tones.
Stoner lovers should also find their account here, because the fuzz rises to a high level of saturation.
The Catalinbread Octapussy will sound best on a slightly crunchy channel. A great alternative to Dirty Little Secret, which will remain a more traditional saturation.
