We combined the best elements of a Tone Bender MkII fuzz with a Rat
distortion to create something that sings like a fuzz but is tight like a
distortion. It loves humbuckers and single coils. It loves your cranked
amp and your super-clean amp.

Katzenkönig was tuned to offer a huge range of response – from a
really beautiful singing tone, to tight, harmonically-rich crunch, all
the way to fuzz mayhem.

A simple, four-knob control scheme allows you to dial in your sound quickly and without much fuss:

INPUT – Controls the input sensitivity. Turn it down when using
higher output pickups and humbuckers or to dial in your wah sound (more
on that later). Turn it up for lower output pickups or for when you want
to go over-the-top!

GAIN – Controls the gain of the second gain stage. It is not a
conventional gain control, rather, it controls the amount of negative
feedback in that stage. What does that mean for you? It means you get a
wide ranging gain control that sounds great throughout it’s entire

FILTER – Allows you to dial in your final tone from smooth and creamy
all the way to bright and cutting. You can quickly find the sweet spot
for your rig with this control. If you are familiar with the Filter
control on a Rat then what you’ll find is that this is an even better
version of that idea!

VOLUME – Standard volume control. You’ll find that Katzenkönig sounds great turned down quiet or cranked up and loud!
