Catalinbread Antichthon Fuzz/Tremolo Pedal
This one is really one to write home about, pedals are usually subtle variations of established effects that have been subtly changing over decades, but really not offering much true innovation, this pedal is something new, or at least 2 old things combined in a new way! It's a tone generating fuzz tremalo that uses both the expression in your playing, and/or the volume control on your guitar to produce a very interesting effect. We'd advice checking the Youtube video to check it out, as hearing this one is much easier than trying to describe it! Still, here's what Catlinbread have to say about it:
"Tired of effects that behave in the same predictable way? Want something new to spark your songwriting? Want to create crazy new sounds no one has heard before? The Catalinbread Antichthon gives you an entirely new palette of sound and response to work from!
Designed to be controlled from your guitar's volume knob, Antichthon has a multitude of sounds and possibilities that can be broken down into three general categories:
Dynamic fuzz tremolo, "fuzzolo", if you will, where you can alter the speed and the sound of the tremolo by turning your guitar's volume knob. Go from fuzzed-out, intense tremolo sounds, chock full of even-order harmonics, to slow and gentle pulses, just by turning down your guitar's volume knob. Once you've set the controls on the Antichthon, your guitar's volume knob takes over, allowing you to dial in a wide range of amazing textures without touching the pedal.
Dynamic tone-generation that you can play your guitar through. Antichthon can create its own sounds even without you touching a string. But when you do play your guitar you can push and pull against the other-worldly tones Antichthon creates - Tibetan horns from another dimension, galactic dolphins, sub-bass drones that will rattle the foundation, bird calls, dark matter locusts, space cats, and more. You set the controls on Antichthon to create your own new universe. Then you work your guitar's volume knob to travel through it.
- Harmonic fuzz drive. Although Antichthon truly is another world, it gives you a wormhole back to something that seems familiar. You can set it to create a beautiful harmonic overdrive that is epic and open sounding, dynamic in response, and never harsh."
