Recreate Classic Tones From The Late 1950s With The Catalinbread Formula 5F6 Tweed Bassman-Style Amplifier Pedal
The Catalinbread 5F6 is Catalinbread's take on the classic tweed Bassman-style amplifier from the late 1950s. Utilizing 2-6L6 output tubes into 4-10″ speakers, the Bassman quickly became the mainstay of stages everywhere during that era.
Do you play a high-powered clean amp such as a Twin and can’t get a good cranked response at the real world gig volumes you have to play at? Do you play a smaller amp at home but it’s still too loud to give you a great amp response? Do you have a two-channel amp but hate the dirty channel? Or maybe you can play as loud as you want but you crave more touch-sensitivity in your rig. Or maybe you’re having trouble integrating fuzzes into your rig; maybe they get too loud or they just don’t sound right because your amp tone is too clean and the dirty channel of your amp makes the fuzz sound thin, farty, and pinched-off. Adding the Formula 5F6 to your rig will solve all these problems and will become the foundation of your pedalboard, the pedal that will enhance the response of all your other pedals.

- Treble, Middle, and Bass Tone
Power Supply Recommendation: Negative Tip DC, 9-18 volts
If you want more volume, headroom, and percussive attack, try running an 18 volt power supply. A 9 volt power supply will have a slightly softer sound that saturates more easily - it's sort of like the difference between a 50 watt and 100 watt amp.Manufacturer: Catalinbread
Model: FORMULA 5F6
Warranty: See manufacturer website for details
