    Ok, it's obvious that there's a shakeup. That much is clear. But I'm not keen on feeding into the drama. What's done is done.
    I have owned several CB pedals(DLS mkII/III, Belle Epoch(x2), Topanga, Echorec, Montavillian) and still own a Perseus and a few months ago I picked up another Echorec(copper version).

    I love Catalinbread and, frankly, that other thread is a bummer. Personally, I wish nothing but the best for those cats as they make some of the finest offerings available.

    Anyone else feels like showing CB some love?

    Just received a Katzenkonig in the mail and want an Echorec or Belle Epoch Deluxe. Can't decide which yet. Some Catalinbread love here.

    I've had a few over time and they've all been really good pedals. I kind of wish I still had the Adineko. I do still have this one:

    Copper looks awesome! Been searching for one myself as well with no luck... I think Catalinbread does delays like none other. Echorec and belle epoch are first class

    Owned a lot of their pedals over the years, and I wish I could have kept them all. I still have 2 DLS MKI v2 pedals, one in absinthe green and one in dark blue. I love that version of that pedal. I had a silver one way back, sold it in the GAS cycle, tried a ton of other dirt, and ultimately decided I needed another DLS. I bought the blue, and then the absinthe came up for sale, so I nabbed that, too. One on each board.

    I'm a big fan. I have a few in the stable: Belle Epoch, Montavillian, original Galileo, and RAH. Just awesome stuff, IMO.

    The Manx is a VERY underrated muff. Don’t know why it didn’t get more love here.

    Love their pedals........... currently have the F55, BED and Topanga. Looking to add the Talisman. Have previously owned the 5F6, Belle Epoch, Echorec and SFT. Not a bad pedal amongst them

    Edit: Forgot about the Valcoder.... another CB pedal I have previously enjoyed

    Currently own the Karma Suture, previously owned and loved Formula 5F6, DLS Mk III and Galileo Mk I. All fantastic pedals.

    Echorec is my favorite delay. And of course, the Valcoder.

    I only have the Heliotrope. I don't use it that much but I won't sell it.

    I still have my Montavillian! It's a great, simple delay with a lot of character.

    Great company! Had the pleasure of visiting their HQ in Portland. Really nice people that make excellent pedals. Tragic what happened to Nicholas. Over the years I've owned: DLS MKII, DLS MKIII, Naga Viper, Belle Epoch, Galileo MK I, HyperPak, V8 Fuzz, Serrano Picoso, Ottava Magus, Manx Loaghtan, Octapu$$y, CB30 and Semaphore Tap Tremolo.
    It'll be a shame if they don't stay around. But I'm sure in the year+ since they lost their founder/owner, it's been tough to pick up the pieces.

    Love Catalinbread! I just got the Belle Epoch Deluxe, love the Dirty Little Secret, have previously used two Belle Epochs and plan on getting a Formula No. 55 if I can still get one.
