Callisto: At a Glance
MN3007 Bucket Brigade.
Audiophile Burr Brown OPA2134.
Continuous control over delay time for a multitude of sounds.
Lush chorus, true pitch vibrato, faux-leslie, sea sick warble, and more.
The Catalinbread Callisto is a Chorus/Vibrato pedal, which employs an MN3007 Bucket Brigade chip at its core. It's interface is simple, intuitive, and provides a multitude of sounds ranging from subtle and shimmer to rotary speaker-like to off-kilter warping/warble sounds. A twist of the DENSITY knob continuously adjusts the delay line time delivering classic chorus sounds from fat & warm to airy & subtle. MIX knob smoothly dials everything from lush chorusing, to true pitch vibrato, to sea sickening warble, and has the ability to run clean dry to completely wet. The sweep depth of the chorusing is controlled by the WIDTH control. The RATE range can go from slow and syrupy to almost ring-mod intensity.
The Callisto's small size and elegant, versatile feature set make it a great addition to any pedalboard. The Callisto is powered using a 9v negative tip DC power supply or 9V battery, is true bypass, and integrates various highest quality components to achieve the best tonal response possible. Catalinbread utilizes an old school MN3007 bucket brigade chip, just like early chorus pedals, and uses an audiophile Burr Brown OPA2134 chip in the audio path to give the Callisto a natural feel and dynamic playability.
