Catalinbread Karma Suture Germanium Overdive/Distortion Pedal

"The Karma Suture will reward your good tone intentions by lacing up your sound with awesome harmonics that bloom and bloom, turning your power chord into a tantric event!"
We try out a lot of different circuits at Catalinbread when looking for new ideas, always looking for that spark of something special. During one such prototyping session, one circuit really stood out. We’re talking about a rare and obscure circuit known as the Harmonic Percolator. “Wow! There’s something to be mined here!” This circuit has the amazing property of generating predominantly even-order harmonics – which creates an amazingly sweet and clear distortion. You may know of this circuit from its use by Steve Albini, who owns one particular unit that apparently has magical properties no other unit seems to have. We could search for holy grails and chase rainbows, but we saw a potential beyond one person’s use of it. Oddly enough, the ‘Percolator has a reputation for creating an ugly sound, albeit a cool and ugly sound. But we found something beautiful in it. So beautiful that you could play complex jazz chords through it and every note rings sweet and clear. So, using the original circuit as the springboard, we created the Karma Suture.

Highlights

  • The Density control goes from a thick fuzz tone that can sound like an amp ready to explode all the way to a tight harmonically rich overdrive that screams “rock and roll!”.
  • This control is the key to dialing in the Karma Suture with any rig, allowing you to finetune to find the exact sweet spot.
  • The Diodes control allows you to set the threshold of the diode clipping circuit - from full clipping to get the most distortion and compression all the way to no diode clipping for a wide-open (and LOUD!) sound.
  • The Input knob controls how much of your guitar signal gets to the harmonic
  • generator. Set it low for a lively boost, laden with even-order harmonic content. Or crank it all the way up to get fuzz blasts!
  • And Output controls the volume level. This pedal is capable of some serious output in certain settings!
