What is the CAT KING?

 The Cat King is the “king sized” version of our Cat Tail, a low to high gain distortion with overdrive capabilities (some even say at high gain settings, it sounds like a fuzz). This circuit is based on a well-loved, classic distortion that make a clean amp dirty and a dirty amp disgusting. We have tweaked the original circuit to better meet the needs of guitarists and bassists alike. With the addition of a diode toggle for extra tweakability for clipping options, we have added to the modifications the Beavis double resistor mod (Clipping 1 and 2 pots) to allow the user to subtly fine tune how the signal clips on the highs and lows.

Please view the INSTRUCTION MANUAL for more information about the pedal.

This is in fact the pedal known formerly known as “Rat King.”
We changed the name in July 2015 to avoid product confusion.
The circuit remains the same.

    Amazing overdrive/distortion/ fuzz pedal, it’s what I’ve been looking for all of these years! The momentary feedback is what initially peaked my interest because I really wanted to get feedback on my bass and wasn’t having any luck. The feedback switch is really cool when you get it dialed in right and the distortion sounds great on both guitar and bass. Couldn’t recommend enough.

    Thank you for your kind words and positive feedback. We are glad you’re connecting with the Cat King and the distortion sound fits for you.

    Just awesome. The feedback is incredibly organic sounding, especially with this pedal boosting a fuzz it makes gorgeous deep yawning growls and purrs. I had the discontinued model and had to part ways with it, and the big box name brand reissue I’ve replaced it with is a pale comparison. I’ll be back.

    The Cat King is the distortion pedal I’ve always needed. I set distortion 1 for punk and distortion 2 for heavier stuff. My favorite part about this pedal is the feedback foot switch , such a great feature. I have finally found my sound. Thanks Ryan!
