Roland AG-5 Funny Cat

made in Japan, 1970s

Roland AG-5 Funny Cat, Japan 1973

The Roland AG-5 Funny Cat was named number 8 in Guitar World Magazine’s November 2015 article Weird Science: The 10 Strangest Vintage Effects of All Time. Here's what that article had to say:

Perhaps the most appropriately named pedal of all time, the Roland Funny Cat sounds like a feline that has huffed a spray can of Rust-Oleum and downed a bottle of Jäger—and is being whipped. Kind of a fuzz/envelope-follower combination, the Funny Cat spews and mews unpredictably, with the effect often becoming more pronounced the softer, or the higher up the neck, you play. Considering how hard it was to get killer buds (an essential part of good pedal design) in Japan during the early Seventies, the Roland engineer who designed this probably smoked a lot of catnip instead.
