Catalinbread Topanga Burnside

The original Topanga is considered by many guitarists as one of the most authentic-sounding digital recreations of the vintage spring reverb found in vintage Fender amps. The new Catalinbread Topanga Burnside adds to that circuit a tremolo knob.

Unlike the amp units, the mix control allows for 0 to 100% wetness, while the volume knob lets you either compensate for the loss of clean signal that normally happens when adding reverb, or apply some clean boost when the pedal is on.

We added this pedal to our article about the best spring reverb pedals with tremolo.
