Founded in 1993 by Fred Bonte, Black Cat Pedals is one of the oldest and most distinguished brands of boutique guitar effects. Black Cat users have included Eric Johnson, Billy F. Gibbons, Trey Anastasio (Phish), J Mascis, Scott Henderson, Steve Lukather, Michael Landau, Elliott Randall, and countless others.
Black Cat Pedals are all hand-built in the USA. We use premium through-hole components, selected for the finest tone (no SMD). We don’t cut corners or take shortcuts by using PCB-mounted pots and jacks. We employ skilled craftsmen with years of experience using traditional time-honored techniques. And our products reflect the kind of hard work, integrity and ingenuity that our country was built upon… Born in Texas, schooled in the Northeast; nothing’s more American than Black Cat Pedals!
