Topanga is a spring reverb tank clone.
Does 100% wet, 0% dry which is neat

Karma Suture is an overdrive based on the Harmonic Percolator

Result is super clear note definition. Complex chords aren’t muddy!

Film to check out: “Artifact”. The story of 30 Seconds To Mars being sued by EMI and their struggle to release “This Is War”. Awesome stuff. Highly recommended.
