Driven by his preference for stunning guitar tones and a dream of working entirely for himself, Nicholas Harris began developing his own effects pedals in 2003. He wanted to shake up the world a bit by creating musically sound yet striking models and named his company, Catalinbread – Mechanisms of Music.
Perseverance pays. Currently, Catalinbread has sixteen employees on staff and there are twenty-eight models available. The pedals not only stand out because of their playful exteriors, but also particularly impress many guitarists with their excellent response time and sound.
Many models are based on long-lost amplifier modifications or obscure effects equipment used by the great guitarists of the past century to create their legendary sounds. Catalinbread brings all these sounds from Portland, Oregon to you and regularly delights us with new, exciting models.
