Black Cat OD-1

Hand-wired, Boutique quality, Made in USA

The Black Cat OD-1 (a.k.a. Freddie Fuzz) is an original design Fred created based on the unique properties of the OP275, a dual operational amplifier chip made by Analog Devices. The OP275 is a high-quality op-amp that gives a distinctive linear output waveform.

The Black Cat OD-1 can go from clean, to slightly crunchy, to all-out saturated distortion. It is unique in that it is extremely sensitive to the guitar; it responds to the player’s pick attack, and like a good Fuzz Face, it cleans up well when you roll back the volume on the guitar.

Black Cat Pedals Wee Buzz Fuzz

The Black Cat Wee Buzz is a slimmed down, more affordable version of our Bee Buzz. Both pedals are, of course, based on the original Roland Bee Baa. While the Bee Buzz is still very popular, we wanted to create a pedal for players who just want a little fuzz without all the fancy features... a Wee Buzz!

The Black Cat Wee Buzz employs the same circuitry as its big brother Buzz, but comes in a smaller, more "pedalboard-friendly" size with just the basic features. But the biggest difference between the Wee and the Bee is the absence of the Boost channel...

While the Boost is an important feature of the Bee Buzz for many players, for some it's not essential. So the Wee is a Bee minus the Boost. That means the Wee Buzz is 100% Pure Fuzz! It doesn't even have a control to dial in the fuzz because it's hardwired to be totally maxed out all the time. Then we took it a step further by using a higher gain transistor in the first gain stage of the Wee Buzz, giving it a bit more of an edge than the big Bee.

Black Cat Super Fuzz

Hand-wired, Boutique quality, Made in USA

The Black Cat Super Fuzz is a modern recreation of the original Univox Super Fuzz pedal that was made in Japan by Shin-ei in the seventies.

The Super Fuzz, in its various iterations, has developed a cult following over the years and is now more popular than ever. Part of its distinct sound is derived from its two-stage octave doubling circuit — beneath the massive torrent of fuzz is a hint of upper octave; not quite as prominent as an Octavia, but definitely noticeable.

Black Cat OD-Fuzz

Hand-wired, Boutique quality, Made in USA

The Black Cat OD-Fuzz is a versatile, two-channel distortion/fuzz box that combines the Black Cat OD-1 with a traditional silicon Fuzz Face in one pedal.

Each channel of the OD-Fuzz has its own set of controls with separate LEDs for each side. The two channels can be used separately or together in combination. Each effect has its own distinct sound, but the blend of both channels together will yield an incredibly wide range of tonal possibilities, from slightly overdriven to full-blown fuzz. The controls become highly interactive when both effects are engaged.

Black Cat Bass Octave Fuzz

Hand-wired, Boutique quality, Made in USA

The Black Cat Bass Octave Fuzz is a modern recreation of the rare and valuable Maestro Bass Brassmaster, which was used in the seventies by bass players such as John Entwhistle (The Who), Chris Squire (Yes), and Kyle Brock (Eric Johnson/Electromagnets), among others.

One of the problems bass players have always faced when using a fuzz pedal is the loss of low-end. The Bass Octave Fuzz allows the player to blend the clean signal into the mix along with the fuzz. The result is a monstrous roar of fuzz with a thunderous low-end rumble. Not for the faint of heart!

Black Cat Germanium OD-Fuzz

Hand-wired, Boutique quality, Made in USA

The Black Cat Germanium OD-Fuzz is essentially the same as a standard Black Cat OD-Fuzz, except the Fuzz Face side uses two NOS 1960s metal can RCA Germanium transistors.

It cleans up well when you roll back the volume on the guitar, and does everything that people have come to expect from a good Germanium Fuzz Face. It also meshes amazingly well with the OD-1 side of the OD-Fuzz.

Black Cat Custom Bee Buzz

Hand-wired, Boutique quality, Made in USA

The Black Cat Custom Bee Buzz is our version of the original Roland Bee Baa. The project began as a special request from our Japanese distributor, who pre-ordered twenty pedals, sight unseen. This gave us an opportunity to experiment with doing a larger scale run of custom pedals.

We acquired an original Roland Bee Baa from a collector friend and good customer. This assured that we would have an accurate reference for the original circuit. But we quickly noted many areas in the original Bee Baa that needed improvement, such as excessive noise and lack of balance between the tone settings. In addition, the "Treble Boost" in the original Bee Baa was not a feature that most players found useful. So we worked on making a boost mode that would appeal to the modern guitarist.
