The team's opinion: The Catalinbread Montavillian is a very surprising boutique delay pedal! Indeed, if you are looking for a simpler delay, I invite you to turn to the Way Huge Small Pussy. If you are looking for a complete effect, this pedal is for you.
The 4 knobs interact together and are quite intuitive. In addition to the classic Time and Repeat, we will rather focus on the Mix and Cut. The first, will boost the first repetition if you push it beyond 12h. This will then result in an appreciable slapback effect. The second will define the color of the echo! Transparent or on the contrary very colorful.
From there, you can easily imagine the possibilities. This delay can be discreet or on the contrary very marked. It will then take on its full meaning for atmospheric riffs, which can be found for example in Lo-Fi. The pedal works both in front and in the effects loop. On the front, it will color your sound much more.
The Catalinbread Montavillian has benefited from impeccable manufacturing quality, like the brand's creations. This is a now rare model because it is no longer manufactured. Find our effects pedals in action on our channel Youtube.
