The cataPulp’s gain structure truly represents what every great amp in a box (AIAB) should be – with super clean tones that get increasingly dirtier after the “12 o’clock” setting. This allows you to cover a lot of ground between those classic rock inspired tones all the way to a thick syrupy metal territory – Use it as a tone shaper or a secondary gain stage – a truly versatile tonal workhorse! The cataPulp also features an active 3 band EQ and top mounted jacks and our soft click electrical relay true by-pass switch. We use a true-bypass relay because it utilizes a quieter and smoother switch that is more reliable than traditional bypass switches. Your original tone/signal will remain unaffected when the pedal is not engaged.
