    I just saw this too. That's incredibly sad.
    Catalinbread is a great company doing a lot of neat effects. What a freak tragedy.

    Holy crap! Talk about random accidents. If he had just left his house 5 minutes earlier or later................Just goes to show that living life as if it's your last day is definitely a good way to do it. RIP to Nicholas Harris.....you made some real nice stuff.

    This same thing happened to a guy in my hometown a few years ago. He was older, but still. Left the house during a heavy windstorm and a huge, dead, old tree that I had passed by hundreds of times and always looked sideways at fell right on top of the cab of his truck. Guy was going 55-60mph on a country highway road and it hit him square on. Crazy.

    How awful. RIP. I just heard on the radio about the high winds in the area causing one death last night/this morning; did not realize who it was.

    Poor guy. How many great pedals will we never get ?
  11. Very sorry to hear! Thoughts go out to his family and the Catalinbread crew.

    I bought a pedal that he designed today, before hearing about this. The Adineko. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but the sound from it was so inspiring that I couldn't ignore it. I don't know what other pedals he's been involved in designing, but I'm a big fan of Catalinbread. It is by far the most frequent company logo of the pedals on my board.

    Terrible news. I live in Warrenton, which is just a little bit away from where he died. The winds reached almost 100 miles an hour on Wednesday night. I can't imagine why he was driving during the storm, but I'm sorry he was out. It was really really crazy here.

    Rest in peace Nicholas. Your work is a part of music all over the world. The WIIO pedal is an absolute gem, and one of my favorite over drives of all time. My best wishes to his family and friends.

    Very very sad. He will be missed. R.I.P. to another person who made the world a brighter place.

    Truly awful. 37 is far too young for it all to end. Just getting going at that age.

    ohhhh noooo, really really bad & sad!!!

    but strange thing in real-time: i was just about to sell my Catalinbread SFT (v1.0) when i got the notice about his death ... changed my mind, i will keep (t)his pedal for ever now... this is my way to praise and keep Nicholas Harris (Catalinbread) in my mind.
