Do you play a high-powered clean amp such as a Twin and can't get a good cranked response at the real world gig volumes you have to play at? Do you play a smaller amp at home but it's still too loud to give you a great amp response? Do you have a two-channel amp but hate the dirty channel? Or maybe you can play as loud as you want but you crave more touch-sensitivity in your rig. Or maybe you're having trouble inte- grating fuzzes into your rig; maybe they get too loud or they just don't sound right because your amp tone is too clean and the dirty channel of your amp makes the fuzz sound thin, farty, and pinched-o . Adding the Formula 5F6 to your rig will solve all these problems and will become the foundation of your pedalboard, the pedal that will enhance the response of all your other pedals.

The Catalinbread Formula 5F6 lends itself to almost any musical style, from the classic Strat - Bassman blues tones of Buddy Guy and Otis Rush to artists like Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robbie Robertson, Robben Ford, all the way to heavier styles by stacking boost, overdrive, or fuzz pedals into it. Don't worry, the Formula 5F6 won't just make you play old music! It will take you where your imagination takes you! The tweed Bassman may be the most in uential *guitar* amp of all time. Although it was marketed as a bass amp, its treble, middle, bass and presence controls and 4 x 10 configuration were perfect for guitar, as guitar- ists soon gured out. How in uential was the Bassman? Look up the schematic and compare its preamp to that of a Marshall or Vox and you'll see!

What Catalinbread did with the Formula 5F6 was reproduce the key circuit elements of the Bassman "5F6" preamp circuit's bright channel using JFETs instead of tubes and then ne-tuned and re ned it for ultimate low to medium gain response in front of any good amp set clean. You get the same preamp structure (gain stage -> volume control -> gain stage -> tone stack) as the Bassman, key to getting not just the tone, but the feel and response right
