The eighties heralded a new and much sought after tone – ‘The Jaguar’ – pioneered by a legendary US Heavy Rock band and their innovative finger-tapping lead guitarist.
The original sound was based on a UK plexi-style amp cranked to provide rich harmonic saturated distortion. Now you can experience that sound in a compact pedal with the Caline CP-510 Jaguar Distortion. And we didn’t even get to the best part!
We’ve added a Bias control which can transport your tone to either side of the Atlantic. Switch from left to right to reproduce either classic Brit OR American high gain amp tones. If you rock hard, prepare for an eruption of joy when you hook up the Brown Sound into your chain.

I have a love-hate relationship with distortion but the Jaguar is really different. The tone of the pedal itself is really rad (it's like a heavily boosted overdrive) and the shaping options mean there are thousands of great combinations in it... but the thing I'm most stoked about is the envelope - I'm not sure if it has some kind of noise suppression or compressor circuit built in but the way it goes dead silent after a string of notes and eases back in makes it feel like you're playing a fuzz pedal - it's extremely expressive and it almost encourages you to dig in harder. It's AMAZING.
