The Coriolis Effect is a phenomenon in classical mechanics where a trajectory becomes altered due to a rotating frame of reference. The Catalinbread Coriolis Effect has three main parameters to change the equations of motion for your guitar signal. Turning down the Velocity and Acceleration controls drags your playing into the heart of a black hole, redshifting your tone into a lower pitch and filtering out the high frequencies. The Hold button will instantly pull you into the black hole stopping time completely. Plug in and explore where humanity has never shredded before! In short: Think of the Coriolis Effect as a sustainer, wah, filter, pitch shifter, and harmonizer rolled into one—the sonic possibilities are endless!

Under The Hood
There are three controls for the Coriolis Effect that can only be accessed by removing the backplate of the pedal. Inside the enclosure you will find two switches for Bypass Switching and Expression Pedal Polarity, as well as a trimmer pot for setting the Gain Level.

Expression Pedal Polarity
At the top right corner of the pedal you will find the Expression Pedal Polarity Switch. By default this pedal will be set to the "Normal" setting, which means it will be compatible with the majority of expression pedals that use standard wiring. We also included the "Reverse" setting for those who like to keep their expression pedal set to reverse polarity. For instance, the Catalinbread Belle Epoch Deluxe requires an expression pedal with reverse polarity setting. We added this switch to make life easier for those who may choose to swap their expression pedals back and forth between the Coriolis Effect and the Belle Epoch Deluxe, without having to make adjustments to their expression pedal.

Bypass Switching
In the bottom left-hand corner of the board you will find a slider switch for setting the type of bypass switching. You can select either True Bypass (labeled "TB"), or Buffered Bypass (labeled "BUFF").

By default, the Coriolis Effect will be set to the True Bypass setting. In this setting, the pedal will be completely bypassed when the effect is turned off. We included the buffer setting for those who prefer that style of bypass switching, however, as with all of our other buffered bypass pedals, when using the buffer setting the Position knob will set the volume of the buffer. In this setting, you must be mindful of the Position knob, as well as the Hold footswitch. In Buffered Bypass mode, as you turn the Position knob counterclockwise you will increase the volume of the buffer. If the Hold footswitch is activated, the sounds coming from the Coriolis Effect will continue to be aduible until the Hold paramter is deactievated (similar to the "trails" feature on other Catalinbread effects).
