From the manufacturer: There is a lot of confusion about just what the Catalyst is... is it a clean Booster, an overdrive, a distortion, or a Fuzz? The answer is "all of the above."
What does it do best? Clean Boost, non compressed crunch tones (a la Jimmy Page, 70's Jeff beck) and non-compressed distortion/fuzz sounds... accent on NON-compressed. Other unusual traits of the Catalyst are its tight low end and ability to give both flat EQ and accentuated Mid distortions simply by manipulating its 2-band EQ.
Until the Catalyst, only Fuzzface-type pedals truly cleaned up when you turn down the guitar's volume knob. But Fuzzfaces tend to get unuseably bright for most players as you turn the guitar's volume down. Not the Catalyst. That's something that Jeff beck has recenlty noticed & embraced about the Catalyst.
Catalyst can be a Fuzz/Distortion (with toggle switch set to "Flame" position). Catalyst can be a phenomenal clean-boost, and overdrive as well (with toggle switch set to "Spark" setting)
It has something I came up with called Max-end-all 2-band EQ: an excellent hi-cut with a great bass control having the proprietary ability to bring in incredible sounding midrange when the pot reaches around 3 o'clock on its rotation.
Catalyst can be so raw yet can be so refined, and so musically useable that it can be confusing to those used to the standard fare "one trick ponies."
Don't be confused, chart your own path... and when you see this pedal on Pop, Blues, even Country rigs and Top 40 pedalboards... try one for yourself and see what all the fuzz is about.For further information about this Fulltone Catalyst effects pedal please contact Chicago Music Exchange.
