YOUR BEST SOURCE FOR PRO AUDIO GEAR. Catalinbread Sabbra Cadabra Distortion Rangemaster Booster Guitar Effects Pedal. The Sabbra Cadabra is a custom-tuned Rangemaster-based booster combined with the pre-amp section of a Laney Supergroup.
The two circuits are carefully voiced together to achieve the riffs of doom tone that Tony Iommi is so well known for. Four controls (RANGE, GAIN, PRESENCE, and VOL 4) allow you to fine-tune the response to your guitar and rig. If you're familiar with Sabbath's live album,'Past Lives', then you'll understand where we were going with this pedal - huge, raw, responsive! The Sabbra Cadabra's circuit is optimized for drop-tuning but works equally well for standard tuning thanks to the RANGE control, which allows you to "customize" the treble-booster section of the circuit and adjust it anywhere from treble-boost to full-range boost.
Iommi, someone modded his Dallas Rangemaster. I don't know what he did to it, but it was really good. I used that treble booster on all the early Sabbath albums and put it into the Laney because it boosted the input and gave it the overdrive I was looking for, which amps in the early days didn't have. Then in 1979 another tech threw it into the garbage, thinking it was crap.So no one really knows what was done to it. But based on our experience, it was most likely changing it to be more of a full-range boost and possibly re-biasing it. That's what we mean when we say you can "customize" the treble-boost section with the RANGE knob - you can continuously adjust it to any input frequency response and feel that you want. Based on classic tones from legendary Toni Iommi.
"Customizable" tone; adjust to any input frequency response. The item "Catalinbread Sabbra Cadabra Distortion Rangemaster Booster Guitar Effects Pedal" is in sale since Friday, September 18, 2015.
