Catalinbread’s new Topanga II effects pedal updates its older brother’s big surf tones by adding in a toggle switch that changes the reverb core, extending decay and density for an “impossibly rich splashy spring 'verb experience.”

In addition to the “+” switch, the Topanga II features the same Dwell/Tone/Mix/Volume control set as the original, and is capable of conjuring up similar vintage-y Fender 6G15  vibes.
