Last updated on April 8, 2024 2:59 pm Details


In this review post we’re going to be discussing the Catalinbread Sabbra Cadabra Boost Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

The Sabbra Cadabra is a custom-tuned Range master-based booster combined with the pre-amp section of a Laney Super group. 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 they were going with this pedal – huge, raw, responsive!
