So as the subject suggests... its a very very dirty NPD for me...

Without the teasing... here we go...



What?! Its a purple pedal? How wrong is that?


What's with the Marshall-y knobs... it can't be an MG in a pedal can it? Heresy!

Nah... it's only a....


Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret


Catalinbread pedals don't get much recognition here on UG. My interest was piqued by how it had a 60s-70s era Marshall sound as well as a 80s-90s Marshall tone all in one pedal.

I can say that it's amazing.

Its not your regular OD... in fact... Catalinbread doesn't exactly advertise it as an OD... but rather as a sonic foundation pedal. You build your pedal tone, based on the DLS being in the front of the chain.

It can accept 9v-18v power input... and has Rock mode (Marshall JTM/JPM) for a good dose of rock gain... and then Rwak mode (Marshall JCM) for even more gain.

Heck it does low gain up to metal gain very well... and it made a Berhinger SS amp sound good.

The best part is... it's really responsive... even more responsive than a Fulltone OCD. Picking and playing dynamics are really prominent on the DLS.

Hope you enjoyed the dirty p0rn.

Oh and a shot of all my pedals...

Thx all..

I'll be happy to address any queries about the pedal... but clips won't be for a while... I don't have a mic.. tho that is next on my to buy list.

I agree, WtrPlyr, they have some pretty sweet pedal... but not all their pedals really attract me.

Sorry, slickerthnsleek, its not a pedal board... haha its the cover for my pedal box... but I get what you mean. Took me a long time to search out pedals I'd use... and a lot of discipline to not just buy any pedal that comes along... the Digitech Distortion Factory taught me that lesson the hard way.

Thx for the comments, ze monsta.

HNPD! You've given me GAS for one of these again, just when I decided not to spend so much
Hows it sound when used on top of amp gain and on clean?

NOOOO!!! Curse you, I wanted the Purple DLS but they're sold out. You Bastard!

Happy NPD!

PS. I'd LOVE to see an MG OD pedal!

Ah, that's awesome! HNPD!

Ze purple is worthy of much love. And secks.

I was actually looking at getting one of these! How does it stack with your OCD for ep1c d1st0rt10n toans?

Thanks all... I notice that my pedals collection gets as much attention as the new pedal itself.

Took me a lot of effort and discipline to only buy what I really wanted and not get stuff that seemed cool.

That said... I'm wasn't certain when I purchased the DLS... but when I tested it... it was so damned good... I had to have it... even though the style and type of gain isn't what I'd usually use, but I'm sure I'll find a use for it... at the very least Rwak mode will get somewhat close to an inFlames dist.

As an admission, I've not actually tested it on my Mark V yet... so I have no idea what it sound like, but tonight I will have reviews based on the following setups.
1. DLS (9v) -> amp
2. DLS (18v) -> amp
3. DLS (9v) -> Fulltone OCD (9v) -> amp
4. DLS (18v) -> Fulltone OCD (9v) -> amp
5. DLS (9v) -> Fulltone OCD (18v) -> amp
6. Fulltone OCD (9v) -> DLS (9v) -> amp
7. Fulltone OCD (9v) -> DLS (18v) -> amp
8. Fulltone OCD (18v) -> DLS (9v) -> amp
9. DLS (18v) -> Fulltone OCD (18v) -> amp
10. Fulltone OCD (18v) -> DLS (18v) -> amp

I'm not sure if I can daisy chain an 18v output into 2 pedals with my Fuel Tank Jr... but I'll send a mail to T-Rex to check.... if it can... I'd be really excited to run both the DLS and OCD cascading into a MkV.

I wonder if I have the time to do all that chaining

Hehe... among all the colours, the purple was the most striking. The orange didn't seem "right", and the white was plain... hence the purple was the coolest.

I'd have gotten a red if they had a Red DLS... everyone knows that a red OD pedal makes you play faster... that much faster!

Oh yeah ch0... you should target to get a Red Witch... its awesome...

Any suggestions what I should get next?

I'm thinking of a Zoom recorder... then maybe a Pigtronix Echolution... then a Empress Super Delay... then a Lovepedal Kanji 9 OD if I can find one somewhere... then maybe an Area 51 wah... any other suggestions? What about a Dr Scientist chorus?

Thanks man, I try to make it a point to only buy pedals that'd I'd actually use... or feel bad for not using, so I'd use it

Not PGS actually... I get all my pedals from some small shops in Singapore that specializes in vintage and boutique as well as rarer pedals...

I pay a small premium for a lot of the pedals you see there.

I'd say that Pro Guitar Shop is the evilest... nastiest... downright dirtiest shop on the internet... its so hard to resist buying a new pedal whenever I visit Pro Guitar Shop.

What's the black pedal by the OCD?


That's the Korg Pitchblack.

The Dirty Little Secret cost me S$240 with a 6 month's warranty, which is approximately HK$1342.

No mic or recorder... but I will definitely have clipporz up as soon as I get a mic which is my next purchase.
