I've been following the rumor train about the state of Catalinbread over at TGP for a few months because they are one of my favorite pedal companies. Seems like there was some de facto confirmation of a couple rumors based on this video from NAMM. It was just two years ago that they lost their founder in a tragic accident. Now it appears Howard Gee, their media face and product designer, is gone. Seems like they came to NAMM without anything new (the preamp sort of qualifies) and with a crew that may not have been ready to pick up where Howard left off in terms of product knowledge and demonstrations. I am making the thread not to slag the company, but to express some disappointment. What always drew me to Catalinbread was that they always had unique offerings that were really useful, and Gee's unique perspective was a big part of that. In addition, their YouTube channel was unparalleled when it came to education on how to get the most out of their products. Wish him the best and wish the company the best, but I have to wonder if they'll be able to capture that same magic again.
