Black Cat Effects
BOUTIQUE GUITAR EFFECTS
Made in the USA since 1993
After production was discontinued in late 2007, Black Cat is back…and better than ever. Using the same great designs by Fred Bonte, this next generation of Black Cat Pedals has received a super-boutique makeover:
* high-quality components and PCBs
* top-notch build quality with consistent production
* eye-catching graphics and deluxe packaging
Not everything has changed, however — Black Cat Pedals are still individually hand-wired and made in the USA. Black Cat users have included Eric Johnson, Billy F. Gibbons, Trey Anastasio (Phish), Scott Henderson, Steve Lukather, Michael Landau, and countless others.
Tym guitars will have stock of these great pedals very soon. I had heard of Black Cat but when Dinosaur Jr toured recently J was raving about the Black Cat Superfuzz. He likes the new one better than his old Black Cat Superfuzz for some reason and thinks it's the best of any re-issue he's tried.
