Catalinbread Moseley Fuzzrite

The Catalinbread Moseley Fuzzrite is an exact sonic recreation of the original silicon transistor Mosrite Fuzzrite™ - the fuzz that launched thousands of Psychedelic and Garage bands in the mid and late 1960s. It's distinctive voice can be heard on so many classic recordings from that era - from Iron Butterfly’s ‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida’ and The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ to even Country classics like Buck Owens’ ‘Who’s Gonna Mow Your Grass’.  Nothing else sounds quite like a Fuzzrite!

In collaborating with the Moseley estate, Catalinbread gained access to original new old stock Fuzzrite™ pedals to use as the sonic benchmark for the recreation. By playing and examining the components of these amazing rock and roll artifacts, some of which are seeing the light of day for the first time since the 60s, they were able to develop the Catalinbread Fuzzrite™ with absolute confidence that they got the sound and response right. Not only did they have original NOS Fuzzrite™ builds to test against, they also had the ears of their collaborative partner, Mark Moseley, who built them when he was a kid in Bakersfield working for his Dad, Andy and Uncle Semie at Mosrite. Through Mark, Catalinbread also reached out to Ed Sanner, the original designer of the Fuzzrite™, who graciously offered additional insights to the circuit. Mark and Ed were there from the beginning and if anyone knows what a real Fuzzrite™ should sound like, it's these guys! Catalinbread feel so fortunate to be entrusted with bringing this sound back - and hope you enjoy this true labor of love as much as they did!
