Tony Iommi + Treble Booster + Laney Supergroup \m/

"Transform any guitar rig into a rig of doom with the Sabbra Cadabra."

Tony Iommi arguably had the most influential tone in the history of electric guitar. Really, when you think Black Sabbath you immediately think "Electric Guitar". His early signature sound was the result of an always on treble-booster plugged into cranked Laney Supergroup amps. This approach to guitar is extremely rewarding and fun, but lost in this day and age because honestly who can really get away with the stage volume anymore? Far and few between! We designed the Sabbra Cadabra to give players that sonic experience, re-contextualized for today's approach where players tend to use amps solely within their clean range at more mortal volume levels.

I acquired a short time after I purchased the DLS Red the above pedal. Since the DLSR did such a splendid job with its Plexi sounds, I took a chance on the Laney like on. And does it ever replicate the sound of the fabulous old Laney, it also nails it in association with the very collectible (and expensive) booster! As with the other Catalinbread pedal I own, the controls offer much fine tuning. The pedal delivers an immense amount of gain/sustain Tony Iommi's aficionado will love. As for my own use, most of the controls are at just below 12 O'clock except the volume I keep for home practice. The pedal loves humbuckers though it will generate hum with P90's at high gain settings. . The pedal sounds amazing thru tube amplifiers. The little Fender Pro JR IV I own becomes a real Laney. Another amp of mine, a Marshall OR5W combo works very well, however, the 8" isn't as good as the 10" Jensen in the Pro Jr or the Traynor DX112 cab with its Greenback. A surprise involves the small Electro-Harmonix 5MM pedal amp. This amp works like a marvel with pedals. Through a good cab such as the Traynor, it's the perfect practice low-volume-neighbour-friendly device. With the Boss RV-6 for a pinch of reverb in front of either the CB SabCad or DLSR, it's truly the ultimate practice rig. I highly recommend the CB SabCad (and also the CB DLSR for the ones looking for a Plexi sound). I prefer the former since it offers more sustain however, the DLSR is also an amazing pedal. For Jimmy Page's fans, check from the same maker their Royal Albert Hall version. It truly nails early J.P. sound from 1970. There's a video from its designer Howard Gee on the net where he plays "Since I've Been Loving You". The sound produced is identical! As usual, the Belleville staff was outstanding. Many thanks to Mr. T.!!

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
