Catalinbread has a whole new Dirty Little Secret.
The authentic Marshall sound of the MKII version has been redesigned around a new JFET for an even more substantial sound and greater tone sculpting versatility, with two independent circuits each delivering the distinctive sound of a classic Marshall Amp. Unlike a common overdrive, the JFET creates its viscerally satisfying tone without op amps or diodes for a richer, more organic sound, and the new three knob EQ is designed more closely to the tone-stack found on a Marshall preamp with an added Middle control.
The Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret MKIII offers the harmonically rich sound of a classic Super Lead, or, at the flick of an internal switch, the beefier sound of the Marshall Super Bass, perfect for single coils and fuzz pedals. Each mode has its own signature gain and tone stack characteristics, and both work as a foundation overdrive, one that you turn on and leave on for its outstanding tone-developing qualities. It stacks perfectly with other overdrives, fuzz pedals, or any other effects. Simple controls include Treble, Middle, Bass, Master, and Preamp knobs and an internal Presence trim pot that lets you fine tune the effect to your guitar and amp.
The Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret MKIII is wired for true bypass and can run on a 9v battery or a standard 9vDC power supply, but it will deliver extraordinary clarity and headroom with an 18vDC power supply. Let it be your Dirty Little Secret.
