Versatile pedal for fuzz, drive or germanium enhancer.

The Karma Suture Silicon is a more aggressive version of the original Germanium Karma Suture pedal. Not just a clone, Catalinbread added the exclusive Density and Diodes controls along with a long R&D process to get the default settings just right. No matter how you have the pedal set, the tone and response is always alive, sensitive to your playing.

Germanium Karma Suture follows the original recipe of a NOS germanium PNP transistor coupled with a silicon NPN transistor for a sweet, smooth musical response. A mixed pair of germanium and silicon diodes completes the picture, giving you a warm, asymmetrical clipping response.

Silicon Karma Suture ups the gain, output, and brightness with two silicon transistors, still in PNP/NPN configuration, along with a pair of silicon diodes, configured for asymmetrical clipping.

Whether you’re using the Karma Suture as your standalone dirt box into your amp or you’re using it to boost, overdrive, and enhance your existing pedals, you’ll be greeted with a harmonic distortion laden with even-order harmonics - sweet and musical, even with complex chord voicings. Both models provide you with amazing even-order harmonic distortion with distinct personalities.

Because Karma Suture generates predominantly even-order harmonic distortion, you will notice amazing clarity even with extreme settings. You can even play complex chord voicings and yet every note rings through clear. And even at maximum settings, the Karma Suture retains an open and responsive character unlike a lot of fuzzes and distortion pedals.
