Catalinbread | Cloak | Reverb & Shimmer Pedal
or 4x fortnight payments of $43.50 AUD with ⓘ
At its core, the Cloak is a “room” style reverb that sounds amazing on its own, but with a twist of the Shimmer knob, rich, harmonically-laden overtones creep in, emphasizing three different orders of harmonics within the trails. A specially-designed low-pass filter steps in and smooths the harmonics out before they get too out of hand and wreck up the signal path.
The size of the room can be effortlessly dialed in, from a cramped broom closet to as close to infinity as we can possibly muster. This comes in handy when deciding on which type of switching you prefer; the Cloak offers up true bypass switching that cuts off the reverb trails when the Cloak is disengaged, or buffered bypass, which keeps the decay going even after switching off—your pick. Either way you slice it, the Cloak is ready to impart a little black magic unto your rig.
The Cloak is shipped in trails mode. This mode is buffered, and the preamp will be active even in bypass. It's called "Trails" mode because the reverb signal will continue to decay even after the Cloak is switched off. Removing the back panel gives you the option to turn the Cloak into "true bypass" mode. In this mode, your signal is unaffected by the Cloak when it is turned off. However, turning off the Cloak will immediately cut off the reverb signal.
