In response to thousands of customer emails over the years requesting a pedal brimming with '60s and '70s classic rock tone, the designers at Catalinbread went to work. After intensive study and consultation, the Dreamcoat Preamp Pedal has arrived! The Dreamcoat lets you tap into the tone of the Aiwa TP-1011 reel-to-reel deck. It features an active, adjustable frequency boost coupled with a vintage-correct Aiwa circuit and a clean blend, translating to an array of tones that range from singing and clear to howling and crunchy. Plus, a saturation control for the Aiwa pre takes your tone from crystal-clear highs to doomy sludge and all points in between. Guitarists here at Sweetwater are incredibly impressed with the true-to-the-era tones the Dreamcoat delivers, as well as the plethora of overall classic rock tones and textures this pedal provides!
Groundbreaking rock guitarists of the mid-70's comprised a creative bunch, experimenting with all kinds of modifications to both their amps and pedals as they searched for tones that boosted their style and expanded their sonic reach. Nothing was off the table. Exploration sometimes led nowhere; other times, lightning struck. This was certainly the case when a burning classic rock legend decided to plug an amp into the input of the TP-1011, effectively boosting the signal as well as soaking it in echo as it made its ways back through the amp. The Catalinbread Dreamcoat does all of this work for you, letting you dial up everything from nearly-desert-dry to amp-melting tweed tones. And with Frequency, Saturation, Blend, Mic Volume, and Master knobs, you can make a huge array of subtle as well as in-your-face adjustments to your overall tone. Take the Dreamcoat home today and forge your own sonic journey!
