Catalinbread's Fuzzrite recreates '60s classic

By Catalinbread's normal flamboyant standards, its new Fuzzrite's sleek enclosure looks positively restrained. But the Portland, Oregon-based boutique pedal makers promise that it will in fact enable you to recreate the iconic fuzz heard on such rip-roaring period pieces as Iron Butterly's In-A-Gada-Da-Vida and, more recently, in the Black Keys' output.

The newly hand-built unit uses the classic silicon circuit to evoke the original's 'splatty, raw and unapologetic' tones, while adding the option for a 9V power supply.

Catalinbread's Fuzzrite is available now for $149. For more info head over to Catalinbread.

An undeniably ropey but occasionally enthusiastic drummer, I've worked on the world's greatest music making website in one capacity or another since its launch in 2007.
