Catalinbread Formula 55

18357

Turn your amp into a 100-Watt Tweed Deluxe   The company states that the Formula No. 55 pedal will make your amp sound like a 100-Watt Tweed Deluxe amp. The pedal has a huge low-end response and touch-sensitive dynamics, with a tight, punchy and fat sound. The circuit of the Formula No. 55 is based around an all-discrete JFET signal path, as the pedal reproduces the preamp section of a Fender 5E3 Tweed Deluxe amp. The controls for Volume and Tone were designed to respond exactly as an authentic Twee amp would, and the pedal’s output section offers a lot of volume and punch, with a low output impedance. Controls   The new Catalinbread Formula No. 55 features controls for Volume, Tone, Presence and Master and there’s also a Hi/Lo button. With the Volume control, you can go from clean, jazzy tones to a rich and full overdrive, while you can add or decrease the warmth of the sound with the Tone knob. It is advised to use the Presence control starting from the middle position. This control adjusts the frequency range around 5 kHz and you will get more bite when you turn it up, while turning it counter-clockwise will result in a warmer, darker tone. Master sets the output level.   The Hi/Lo switch allows you to choose between low-gain or higher-gain sounds. Activating the Hi setting provides you with more gain, for more overdrive and attitude in your sound. The LED on the pedal will glow red when the Hi setting is on. When you choose Lo, the LED will glow green and you’ll get a cleaner or a mildly overdriven sound with lower gain.
