Catalinbread Effect Pedals - Topanga Spring Reverb
The Catalinbread Topanga Spring Reverb Pedal is all you really need to get your surf game on - as well as to replicate many classic '60s tones. Based on the legendary Fender 6G15 outboard spring reverb unit, the Topanga effortlessly emulates this particularly awesome reverb effect without sounding artificial, from more subtle, ambient ways to Dick Dale-approved intensity. Using only four straightforward controls, it's a breeze to dial-in your tone - though you have a near-infinite number of options.
The Dwell control, like on the 6G15, adjusts how hard the "springs" are hit by the guitar signal, so this is used primarily to change the effect itself, while the Tone, Mix, and Volume controls complement the effect, giving you plenty of variations. And if you want even more, you can try the super secret Modulation mode. No, really. It has that, too. (Just unplug the power supply, turn the Tone knob all the way counter-clockwise, then plug it back in. Bam! a whole new sound!) Seriously one of the coolest reverb pedals on the market, and arguably the best at spring reverb especially, the Catalinbread Topanga Spring Reverb Pedal is a must-have for surf players looking to add something a little more to their tone. Requires 9V power supply.
