Black Kat Devices is an Italian company specializing in the production of guitar pedals. All products are handmade and customizable through the use of 3D printing.
Black Kat Devices is a small Italian company specializing in the fabrication of guitar pedals. All products are made by hand and with the help of the 3D printer regarding the construction of the stomp-box, making the aesthetic features completely customizable, and maintaining lightness and robustness at the same time.
The WASP DRIVE is a compact and lightweight pedal, weighing only 180 g and measuring 9.5 x 8.1 x .4 cm. It can be used as a main drive for clean, dynamic sounds or as a secondary drive to push on solos, or as a simple booster to add a different touch to the sound. Controls include: GAIN; HI CUT to attenuate high frequencies and VOLUME to adjust the output level; FAT to boost low frequencies; and the SWITCH “+” to pre-amp the signal. The footswitch allows you to turn the pedal on or off, and the LED lights up when the pedal is in use.
The FOX DRIVE, on the other hand, is a compact overdrive pedal with a transparent character. It weighs 185 g, and has dimensions of 8.3 x 8.5 x 5.2 cm. It is designed to take full advantage of the characteristics of JFET, a type of field-effect transistor, to achieve a warm, dynamic sound with an attack similar to that of a tube head. The pedal has three controls: GAIN, TONE and VOLUME. There is also a boost and two footswitches: the right one activates the pedal; while the left one increases the output signal by 20 dB.
The Black Kat Devices we got to test combine innovative design and quality materials. The Wasp Drive and Fox Drive are just a few of their guitar pedals; May 20 and 21, 2023 at the Guitar Show in Padua will be an unmissable opportunity to test them all under your hands.
