This week’s Free Shirt Wednesday goes out to Black Cat Pedals. A few weeks ago I reached out to Black Cat Pedals to see if we could possibly do some things together in the future. I really like contacting builders and developing a great network for possible new reviews, promotions, etc. Anyways, that led to a shirt in the mail, and a new pedal business to research, so here we go.
Looks like Black Cat Pedals was originally founded in Texas by Fred Bonte in 1993. He later discontinued production in 2007 and Black Cat has restructured, but using the same designs that Fred created. All their pedals feature high-quality components and PCBs and are hand-wired.
They have a pretty impressive list of Black Cat players – Eric Johnson, Billy F. Gibbons, Trey Anastasio, Scott Henderson, Steve Lukather, Michael Landau, etc. Not a bad list.. not bad at all!
They have four main pedals with number five (Vibe and Ring Modulator) coming out soon.

Now, if you want to be featured on Free Shirt Wednesday.. it’s really quite simple. Send me a shirt, if it’s music related (ie: guitar builder, band, pedal builder, guitar shop, recording studio, etc) I’ll dedicate a blog post about your biz, band, etc. I’ll take a photo with my aging, slightly pudgy mug and post it. Great simple, cheap form of advertising. Still interested? Then check this page for more info
