Recommended Posts

Nuevo pedal de Fulltone. Parece muy interesante.

Ya pongo en marcha los motores para conseguir uno. :mrgreen:

Fulltone Catalyst

 

Fuzzes can be a powerful thing in the right hands....BUT

 

....they are one trick ponies, can't do even a bad impersonation of an overdrive or clean boost

 

...they have major interaction issues with other effects like wah and modualtion (vibes, etc)

 

...they all have a sloppy, farty low-end.

 

....they have tons of bass/tons of highs but can't cut through a mix to save their lives...there are absolutely no Mids if you want them.

 

...only Fuzzface-type pedals Truly clean up when you turn down the guitar's volume knob, and even those get unuseable bright for anyone not using a brown old Marshall 4-input.

 

...they sound like ass through a bright Fender-style amp.

 

Then along came a little thing called Catalyst

 

A tiny little Distortion Generator that:

 

has NONE of the drawbacks listed above

 

is a GREAT FUZZ/Distortion (with toggle switch set to "Flame" position)

 

is a Phenomenal clean-boost, and overdrive as well (with toggle switch set to "Spark" setting) 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.

 

can be so raw yet can be so refined, and so musically useable that it defies description and musical boundries..don't be confused when you see this on Country rigs and Top 40 pedalboards..sometimes you get lucky and develop something truly unique.

Escuche el demo de mike fuller.... y aunque genial no me llamo demasiado...

 

También es cierto que todos los videos de él suenan de primera, será por eso? :oops:

 

Igual, siempre destaco la idea de "innovación" que realiza fulltone, al digamos, buscar soluciones a problemas viejos dejando pedales realmente geniales

 

 

pd: que lindo color che, ese naranjita me puede...

Ariel, te agarró una locura por los Fuzzes?

 

Y, qué son esas rueditas al costado del pedal? En la página no menciona nada sobre ellas.

Deben ser como estas:

Bueno, pinta muuuy interesante...

 

Sera que por fin solucionaron el tema de poder usar un FUZZ que interactue con distintos pedales y garpe con equipos bien diferentes??

 

Viniendo de Fulltone no me extrañaria...

 

Saludos!

Bueno, por lo menos puso spark y flame para no confundir a los usuarios.

Lo de la Eq. es una buena opción para ajustar y por suerte Fulltone hace excelentes pedales a un costo razonable (150usd)

Suena a fuzz y bastante controlado.

 

Lo de la entrada de alimentación a la altura del jack creo que obedece a 2 cosas. Cuando vas con una cajita chica, la parte trasera del jack de 9V ocupa mucho lugar y si lo ponés arriba te desplaza demasiado los culotes de los potes y la plaqueta dejándote poco lugar. La otra es que el cable (+) de 9V atraviesa toda la placa y los controles. Hace tiempo muchos fabricantes optaron por mandarlo ahí así queda en una zona bastante libre de espacio y los cables tienen un recorrido mínimo lejos de la placa

 

Abrazo,

Juan.

+1.

A mi tampoco me sonó gran cosa.

Pero es un video. Habría que ver como garpa en vivo y en directo.

Pena que no se puede probar por aqui :evil: :evil:

Then along came a little thing called ...
