Catalinbread Introduces the Blood Donor Pedal

Catalinbread Blood Donor PedalCatalinbread has announced a new limited edition fuzz/distortion pedal called the Blood Donor, which is a revamped version of their Katzenkonig that is made for a cause.

“Here at Catalinbread, we’ve been hard at work coming up with any way we can to help our country’s most vulnerable citizens,” the company writes. “Our Blood Donor pedal does just that: we pledge to donate 100 percent of all this pedal’s profits to the American Red Cross, along with a little gentle encouragement to give your own blood to the cause.”

As such, the Blood Donor’s filter, gain, volume, and input controls have been renamed to say “Please Give Your Blood.” “We’ve added a carefully selected transistor set that pushes the boundaries of saturation and gain to their electrical limits, giving the old cat a little more fur and bite. The noise floor has been trimmed while widening the utility of all controls, giving an increased range of input sensitivity that mimics the volume knob on your guitar. Get into it! And give blood!”

The Catalinbread Blood Donor pedal is available now for $179.99.

Catalinbread Blood Donor Pedal Features:

Filter, Gain, Volume, Input Controls
Power: 9-18 volts DC
Profits Go to American Red Cross

    You neglected to mention what kind of effect this is. I’m guessing some sort of drive/distortion, but the article doesn’t specify.
