Feral Cat
SJS, 14.02.2021
What a pedal. Bought it after hearing and seeing it on the pedal board of a great player - and what a smash it is! Warning - this device is very LOUD! But underneath this ferocity is a very versatile pedal that works well with any type of guitar i feed into it. I suspect great things will come from this Cat King from Portland.

Pros: Looks and Sounds Great
Cons: As any feral cat it hisses!

Rat Killer
Frank646, 03.11.2017
Der Katzenkönig ist ein göttliches Pedal. Es lohnt sich die Videos von Catalinbread dazu anzusehen. Der Entwickler Howard ist ein echtes Original (und ein hervorragender Gitarrist).
Bei diesem Pedal handelt es sich um ein Kreuzung zwischen einem "Tonebender" Fuzz und einem "Rat" Distortion Pedal. Es ist dabei gelungen das Beste beider Welten einzufangen. Bis Gain ungefähr 12 Uhr verhält es sich wie ein Rat und man hat ultra-cremige Verzerrung mit ewig langem Sustain. Es lässt sich aber alles noch sehr gut kontrollieren und es reagiert auch gut auf den Volumenregler. Der Tone-Regler funktioniert genau wie bei einem Rat und der Ton wird dunkler, wenn man ihn im Uhrzeigersinn dreht. Jenseits von 12 Uhr kommt man dann in wilde Tonebender Gefilde, für die ich höchstens ab und zu mal Verwendung habe.
Ich habe das Ding ausgepackt, vor meinen Twin Reverb geschaltet, einmal raufgestiefelt und habe sofort beschloßen "das Ding geb' ich nicht mehr her". Das ist nicht selbstverständlich, denn viele Fuzz Pedale klingen mit einem Twin Reverb kläglich. Das liegt am Mittenloch des Twins wodurch Pedale wie ein Big Muff einfach scheußlich klingen. Der Katzenkönig hat eine sehr starke Mittenpräsenz, die sich dann auch im Mix hervorragend durchsetzt.

Alles in allem ein Megapedal von Catalinbread welches sich für cremigste Lead und fuzzige, gewaltige, brachiale Rhythmus Sounds gleichermaßen eignet. Ich finde es ist jeden Cent wert. Gemeinsam mit dem ebenso unglaublich guten Belle Epoche Delay gibt das Sounds zum niederknien.

Le top de la disto
Nicolas Z., 17.10.2016
De la patate, beaucoup de possibilités de réglages, peut servir à la fois de disto et de fuzz.
Éviter de la coupler avec d'autres saturations car le niveau de sortie de la pédale est très haut.
Il m'arrive de la booster avec une Boss OD-3 en saturation minimum pour les solos pour colorer et donner un son un peu plus nasiar.

Très bon investissement je vous la conseille fortement !

Geiles Teil, aber...
Schnucky Guter, 22.09.2018
Nach langer Suche bin ich auf den Katzenkönig gestoßen. Sehr geiles Teil, super Sound, aber es ist einfach zu viel des guten. Der Katzenkönig macht da weiter, wo viele Pedale aufhören und ganz genau da liegt für meine Bedürfnisse der Hase im Pfeffer. Würde das gute Stück mit weit aus weniger Zerre starten, so würde ich es lieben, aber so probiere ich noch das Walrus Iron Horse V2 aus, bei dem man sich eben genau dieser Problematik angenommen hat und die Zerrstufen in mehr Grautöne unterteilt hat. Der Katzenkönig hat definitiv ein mega Potential. Vielleicht klappt es ja mit der V2, ich wär dabei.
