If  you followed the news from NAMM you may have seen this pedal unveiled.  Well, Catalinbread is ready to let the cat out of the bag. The Octapussy  is an octave-up fuzz in the tradition of the Octavia. But it's not a clone of that circuit! Nope, it's an  original circuit designed by Howard Gee, utilizing 3 silicon transistors  and two diodes that takes the tradition to the next level! Get yourself  the ultimate octave fuzz, and launch your sound into the stratosphere.

The  Octapussy was designed to be extremely responsive to your guitar and  playing. Whether you're looking for sweet, breathy, delicate octave-up  melodies; epic soaring leads that bloom as you hold a bend; or massively huge grinding, industrial-strength  power chords. The Octapussy has it! There's also a slew of other sounds  to be had not only in the pedal itself, but also with your playing style  and guitar controls.
Simple  controls make it easy to find a plethora of octave and fuzz sounds! The  Octapussy has three controls. Gain: This control increases the gain for  more fuzz, harmonics, and upper-midrange frequency boost. It is voiced to be usable throughout its range from  minimum all the way to maximum. Body: This control increases bass  response and like the Gain knob, it also increases output and harmonic  content. Attenuate: This control should normally be set full counter-clockwise. For best tone and response, only attenuate  when you've got the Gain and Body knobs really cranking and need to  reduce the output some.

What  you won't get with the Octapussy: An overly compressed and pinched-off  response. Octapussy remains open and responsive at any setting! You'll  never feel like you're "fighting" the pedal. It invites you to enter its mystical world and explore the huge  range of textures available.

Check out the Catalinbread YouTube Channel for videos that demonstrate some of the range of sounds obtainable with the Octapussy.

The more you play the Octapussy, the more sounds you'll find in it!
