Catalinbread Karma Suture (germanium) - based on the Harmonic Percolator, one of my favorite oddball fuzz pedals, and most worthy of further study. The design was expanded in the usual scholarly Catalinbread fashion for some really thoughtful enhancements.
The bottom two knobs are in level and out level, the same as the original. When I plugged it in next to my Harmonic Percolator clone, the first thing I noticed was it sounded exactly the same. Having no prior basis of comparison, the reciprocal corroboration was appreciated. The Karma Suture adds two additional controls: 'diodes' which adjusts the threshold of diode clipping - from no clipping to full clipping or anywhere in between, and 'density' which adjusts how much of the low frequencies are driving the circuit, from full range to considerably less for controlling excess wooliness. Like the original, it can be set to boost, or for sweet overdrive sounds, or for the distinctive fuzz sounds the original is known for, all with predominantly even-order harmonic distortion. Excellent pedal! #catalinbread #karmasuture #harmonicpercolator #fuzzpedal
