Re: Catalinbread RAH

Great sounding pedal!!! Austin, the King of Tone High Gain side can get pretty dang close. All in the volume and tone controls. But have some EQ control would be sweet. Andy also points out what most manufacturers seem to miss, this tone through "an American Tube amp" i.e. Fender Blackface. I have been saying this for 25 years!!

Andy totally nails those licks! Amazing!!

I hope to have mine soon. My KOT is the standard gain model. And you know me - I like to control everything with pedals and am not much of a knob guy! I just put Duncan 59s in my #1 and hope to try it out soon!

Re: Catalinbread RAH

They really need to showcase this pedal with something OTHER than LZ because while the pedal sounds interesting, the way they apply it makes it sound like just another trebly, half-cocked-wah pick-attack fest :/
Sure that's Page's general tone, but still...

I disagree. It sounds great to me. I don't get the dislike for this pedal. It sounds great to me. I don't hear any half-cocked-wah or anything. Sounds great to me.

And after all - it IS made to have Page's tone, not be a general rock overdrive LOL. This nails Page's tone exact. I will be using it for Zep and Zep only. People love it because Catalinbread was surprised they sold so many in the first couple days. This is the closest anyone has ever got to having Zep tone in a pedal - and they nailed it.

Re: Catalinbread RAH

Eh, I'm just cranky because I miss my girlfriend and the dog

I think it get the wah-thing from the heavy upper-mids focus in the guys sound in the live video there. That's where the electric guitars lives, especially the Les Paul in bridge position, but it gets pretty over the top for me at the end.

I do think it sounds good - I was just hoping to see some more versatility.

i'm with you, man. andy's demo in particular sounded flat and flubby. i'd get a normal WIIO before this, i think

Re: Catalinbread RAH

I'm a big fan of mids and treble. I personally run my amps with bass at 2 or 3, mids at 8 or so, and treble at 8. I like a lot of thickness. And I'm not a big fan of a dark tone or much bass/lower mids. I like a midrangey but bright tone. That's why I love tubescreamers. They cut the bass out and give you lots of mids.

I haven't got any shipping info yet but I'm hoping it's here soon. As I said, if you don't like the sound of the pedal - you wouldn't like Page's tone because this is the only pedal that really gets the Zep Page tone. And this pedal was made to not be a versatile all around overdrive but rather to just get Page's tone in a box through any amp, guitar, etc. It's Page-in-a-box. If it was supposed to be a generic overdrive or a HiWatt in a box - then I'd understand. But it's made for that specific sound.

seriously not trying to cause trouble here man, i just don't hear Page (not even RAH Page, which as you have said before is a rare and specific beast) in this pedal. maybe the user demos will be more convincing.

Re: Catalinbread RAH

i reckon most of the problem is, and you'll forgive me based on the forum we're on - the guys doing the demos are using guitars that sound zip-all like #1. it has such a trebley, mid position sound at RAH (and everywhere else) that i've become attuned to it. the amp sounds kinda like the pedal, i'll grant you, but the guitars just aren't right and that ruins it. this can partly be put down to a lack of imagination on my part, but given the legendary tone of #1, you'd think the guys doing the demos would attempt to find a workaround. it just doesn't sound like JP to me.


on a sidenote, the "call and response" page/plant led zep is always hilarious. as is the Holst reference.

Re: Catalinbread RAH

To me Page's sound is thick, but not overly bassy. But I hear a lot of mids. I just watched TSRTS today and it confirmed my thoughts.

I'll be sure to do a demo when I get it with different settings and where I think it should be. To me it has that dynamic thing and that fatness yet not too chunky that Page's sound is. I've always associated him with HiWatt, Orange, etc instead of Marshall though. That's why Marshall pedals fall short at getting his sound.

I just put Duncan '59s in my #1 and I hear those are supposed to be very close to #1 so we'll see.

Re: Catalinbread RAH

I like the new graphic - but I like the more polished looks and that kind of thing with the metal knobs and the black and red. I'm not a big fan of white. Not to forget - the new one has a Zeppelin font on it. It just looks more polished and more elegant to me. But I like more elegant things than simple designs - I'm picky on how pedals look. That's why I wouldn't go for a plain pedal or silver.

Just ordered mine today. PGS sold out over Easter so I went the ebay dealer route. I had $55 in ebay bucks to use too so I got it for like $134. Love the new graphics with the Song Remains the Same font and Royal Albert Hall/Hindenburg graphic. Not a big fan of the first Page argyle sweater vest.
