New York City-based pedal maker Death by Audio has unveiled its latest delay pedal, a decidedly trippy, innovative creation called the Speed Tripper.

Made in collaboration with Austin, Texas's Levitation festival – the company's second collaboration with Levitation, following 2019's Phosphene Scream pedal – the Speed Tripper is a delay with an optical phaser that users can feed into the feedback path of the delay circuit for ultra-psychedelic sounds.
