Description:  

A Catalinbread/Moseley official collaboration.

What started as a friendship between Nicholas Harris and Mark Moseley has led to this great opportunity for Catalinbread to bring a legendary sound back to your pedalboard. By playing and examining the components of original Fuzzrites, some of which are seeing the light of day for the first time since the 60s, we were able to develop the Catalinbread Fuzzrite™ with absolute confidence that we got the sound and response right.

An exact sonic recreation of the original silicon transistor Mosrite Fuzzrite™ - the fuzz that launched thousands of Psychedelic and Garage bands in the mid and late 1960s. It's distinctive voice can be heard on so many classic recordings from that era - from Iron Butterfly’s ‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida’ and The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ to even Country classics like Buck Owens’ ‘Who’s Gonna Mow Your Grass’. Nothing else sounds quite like a Fuzzrite… In collaborating with the Moseley estate, we gained access to original new old stock Fuzzrite™ pedals to use as the sonic benchmark for our recreation. By playing and examining the components of these amazing rock and roll artifacts, some of which are seeing the light of day for the first time since the 60s, we were able to develop the Catalinbread Fuzzrite™ with absolute confidence that we got the sound and response right. Not only do we have original NOS Fuzzrite™ builds to test against, we also have the ears of our collaboration partner, Mark Moseley who built several them when he was a kid in Bakersfield working for his Dad Andy and Uncle Semie at Mosrite. Through Mark, we also reached out to Ed Sanner, the original designer of the Fuzzrite™, who graciously offered additional insights to the circuit. Mark and Ed were there from the beginning and if anyone knows what a real Fuzzrite™ should sound like, it's these guys! We feel so fortunate to be entrusted with bringing this sound back - and we hope you enjoy this true labor of love as much as we do!
