Overview

The Katzenkonig marries the best of fuzzed and distorted worlds with a streamlined four-knob layout, all-discrete circuitry for the highest quality signal path and response and a trio of silicon transistors for split personality effects monster. Translating to "Cat King," this double-duty workhorse summons the '80s arena buzzsaw of the classic RAT with the Germanium '70s psychedelia sound of a Tone Bender for a new ruler of the pedal roost.

    Ride the Catking in front of any tube driven clean amp and enjoy its mellow saturated tone while nailing Reelin' In The Years. No other pedal can breathe this fuzzy sustained Elliot Randall tone. Love it!

  • Amazing tone but just too noisy

    Verified Purchase

    So looking at the demos online, somehow, Andy and PGS was able to avoid the noise more than the Premiere Guitar demo, but I was prepared for a noisy pedal. It's a real heartbreaker because the tones this pedal make are killer: The Tonebender circuit is a smooth fuzz and just sounds like what rock …
