Catalinbread SFT Overdrive Effects Pedal

The Catalinbread SFT is an AMPEG voiced foundation overdrive that bridges the 'Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!' (Stones) and the Desert Sound (Stoner) eras.

The SFT was a painstaking undertaking to accomplish. That elusive not-clean yet not-dirty sound. A great tube amp does it. You turn it up halfway or so and there it is – not totally clean but not really crunching either. It breathes. It bounces. It responds. Getting a pedal to do that is not easy. Getting a pedal to do that while also making the pedal able to become a pummeling JFET fuzz pedal is even harder. We persisted until we got there! It was all about gain staging. Finding the right bias points. Tuning the tone stack. Making the circuit resonate just right so the pick attack is right. So the thump of the low E string is right. When you’re finally done it seems obvious. Getting to obvious is not so obvious though!

The SFT is one of our Foundation Overdrives – pedals can give you big, cranked up amp response at non-cranked volumes. To use it as intended, you’ll want your amp set to a relatively clean, flat response. In fact, the new SFT is our widest ranging Foundation pedal yet and responds particularly well to fuzzes, boosts, and overdrivers.
