View Full Version : Buster Jangle Overdrive (Catalinbread / Subdecay)
05-28-2007, 02:39 AM
I found this ad on ebay for the Buster jangle overdrive pedal.
When these two guys team up the results should be nothing less than stunning!
It has dual foot switches, volume, driveA, driveB, boost knob and one wicked graphic!
Here is what I got from ebay:
["This pedal is a joint project between:
Brian Marshall of Subdecay Studios (http://www.subdecay.com/)
Nicholas Harris of Catalinbread Specialized Mechanisms of Music (http://www.catalinbread.com/)
It is the result of 7 months of discussion, planning, and fine tuning. We believe the result is one of the finest overdrive pedals on the market today. There are NO plans to make this a standard product for either of our companies.
On a personal note I can say this is one of the most rewarding projects to be involved with in the last year. This is due to a number of things including my respect of Brian's designs in general and the TONE that is bound to inspire many hours of creativity for YOU the player!
Best Regards and Thank YOU!
Anyone else hear or read any info on this pedal??

I used the BIN last night. Hopefully it will arrive by Thursday. Really curious!!!
what's it supposed to sound like?
Does anyone have any additional info? How many are they making?

what's it supposed to sound like?
Erm, a Liquid Sunshine, an awesome boost, and a Liquid Sunshine with an awesome boost in front?

I bought blind. Based solely on the rep of the 2 builders involved.I'm a Catalinbread fan. Love my Semaphore, Silver Kiss and Serrano Picoso. Even though there wasn't a lot of information, I trust Nicholas.

I think it's simply a scp into a liquid sunshine.

I believe you're right Flash. I emailed Nicholas, inquiring about the layout of the pedal, as it has two drive knobs, a boost, and only two switches. He said my guess was correct: Drives A and B work in conjuction like on the Liquid Sunshine and are controlled by the left footswitch, and the boost is similar if not exactly(I don't remember what he said, i'd have to look at my email), like a Super Chile Picoso, which I have and love. The Liquid Sunshine has been on my "To Try List," but I have yet to do so. You guys that bought this dual pedal, let the rest of us know how the dual setup treats ya. Enjoy!

Thanks for getting in touch with Nicholas for the lowdown!
I'll certainly post a review after I play it out a few times -not a problem in the summer months :)

So anyone else get theirs yet??

Got my buster friday, gigged it that night and will again tonight. Sounded GREAT right out of the box!!
Don't walk -RUN to get one before the stock dries up!
I'll try to get a couple clips up.

I'll pipe in now that I've gotten a chance to run it through it's paces at 3 practices and a louder youth service w/ bass and drums...
This is a fantastic pedal. I used it and a crunch box after so that I could use the boost side of the buster jangle to kick the crunch box into higher gear. I had drive A at noon, drive B at 1:30, volume at 11:30 and the boost side was set at around 1. The cool thing is all the different combinations of drive A and drive B sounded good.
The boost side was really nice by itself to fatten up my clean tone, and it was great going into both the drive side of the Buster Jangle and into the crunch box (which I set with a lower gain setting). I'm really glad I jumped at the chance to get this thing because it's a different sounding pedal than my blues pro, small fry, and h2o modded blues driver.

Awesome Boys i cant wait for mine to arrive!

Played the Buster again this morning in church and had a really really nice lead tone with both the boost and overdrive on together playing the neck pickup on my Hamer tele. Very smooth sustain when picking lightly with some nice tweedish grit when digging in. The od section loves being rolled back on the volume knob for rhythm parts. I'm really really digging this pedal.
Man, this sounds like a SWEET pedal. The one subdecay pedal I've always wanted to try is the Liquid Sunshine and now there's one with a Catalinbread boost built in...

I'm getting one of these soon. I already have a Stupid Box and a Blackstar. I've read about the tone of the Liquid Sunshine, but even here there aren't any real descriptions of what they (LS & SCP) sound like together as a (I suppose) high gain sound. Does the maxed gain tone sound like any particular guitarist's sound?
Anyone know how many were made total?
I never thought I would have a purpose for a "plain" boost pedal, but with one as part of duo-pedal, I guess I'll get one to find out. Would this be really any different than a pedal used as a clean boost into a Liquid Sunshine? I probably could have gotten a LS and used one of my existing pedals as a boost to try out cheaper, but this was still a good price on, I presume, a limited edition discontinued pedal.
