The team's opinion: The Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret has been an essential reference in the American brand's catalog for several years. This is the most recent MK3 version.
For the uninitiated, this is an emulation of Marshall Super Lead Plexi and Super Bass from the 70s. 2 legendary amplifiers, having forged the sound of many albums. As you will have understood, this pedal will be especially comfortable for fat and terribly vintage saturations. If you are into the Hard Rock sound of the 70's, you will be delighted.
The grain of the latter goes relatively far. It becomes quite possible to tickle the register of classic Metal. Keeping in mind that the sound will be intentionally imprecise. Let's not forget that this effect pedal reproduces the sound of generous bass amps. It is therefore recommended to use the latter on a “Bright” sounding amp.
Although comfortable with humbuckers, it will satisfy Telecaster users, who will find a welcome boost of bass with the latter. Small precision: This Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret sounds very good. Very well in its Marshallesque register. This is a temperamental pedal and certainly not everywhere.
To buy knowingly! The pedal is offered in almost new condition and with its original box. A great alternative to Ramble FX Marvel 3.
