Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso:
From Catalinbread: "We’ve been building the Super Chili Picoso for the past 10 years solid. For good reason, based on the famous Jack Orman MOSFET boost it is highly regarded by musicians worldwide. Needless to say, it has a running start in terms of sonic quality. It doesn’t suffer from the hashy unmusical qualities of an opamp boost or brittleness of a poorly tuned bipolar boost. We refined Orman’s circuit employing top notch components, but not just because the parts were expensive, but because they were the RIGHT parts to our ears. Thus the Super Chili Picoso is a satisfying to play musical device that enhances your playing without getting in the way of creativity."
The Super Chili Picoso is a deceptively simple pedal that performs so many duties and solves so many problems that it is a must have in every self-respecting musicians’ arsenal.
- Buffer: Have a lot of pedals and/or long cable runs on stage? I don’t care how “low capacitance” your cables are, they are going to roll off high frequency detail and signal strength. The Super Chili Picoso’s high input impedance (something like 10M ohms) and ultra low output impedance (around 3K ohms) doesn’t let a drop of your tone escape. Just turn the big knob counter-clockwise and go! The Super Chili Picoso is your buffer!
- Clean Boost: Ever finding yourself needing a clean, uncolored volume nudge? Say you have your fuzz set just right and need to make your entire soundstage louder? The Super Chili Picoso delivers from a few decibels to upward of 35dB unadulterated clean boost! (Provided any gear that you have down stream has headroom to spare.) The Super Chili Picoso is your MORE pedal!
- Overdriver: Ever want to push your slightly self-overdriven amp into a satisfying crunch at the click of a switch? Say you have a lower wattage amp (or you are lucky enough to play a big ole amp LOUDLY) on the edge of breakup and need to push it even harder without messing with your amp’s overall character, the Super Chili Picoso is your overdriver!
- Balancer: Do you have an old Danelectro U2 with low output pickups and a Les Paul with hot humbuckers and have a tough time achieving an equal volume level between the two while maintaining the sonic qualities of the two instruments? Set the Super Chili Picoso’s knob to make up the difference! There we are, nice and balanced!
REVIEWS & USER COMMENTS:
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW:
"Great for cutting through on solos and what have you. Great boost if you need a little extra drive or... what have you. Also, you may have noticed...... How ******* COOL it Looks!! I'm sorry but I am vain and these things are important to me. I want my board to look as good as it sounds."
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW:
"I use the SCP mainly as a boost and as an "enhancer" on clean/picking parts. It does what it is supposed to do - it boosts your volume without ANY change to original tone, though it adds a bit of a "sparkle". Not a tone coloration. Hard to describe. It is very subtle but oh so sweet."
