The Anasounds Utopia combines a tape echo with a modulation section and creates a warm echo and filter effect with a nice vintage character. The delay time ranges from 0 to 400 ms and can be expanded via an internal trim potentiometer to a maximum of 600 ms. A special highlight of the pedal are the crisp slapback sounds and the good compatibility with overdrive and distortion pedals. The separately controllable modulation section gives the pedal a unique character and transports your sound to the other side of the galaxy.
Anasounds uses a classic bucket brigade circuit to defy the 'digital cold' of modern DSP delays. Like all pedals from Anasounds the Utopia features an innovative combination of internal and external control options. The external knobs control Mix (Wet / Dry from 0 to 100%), Repeat (number of repeats) and Delay (delay time). The Mod switch activates the modulation. The internal trim pots adjust the tone, the modulation speed (Rate), the depth of the modulation (Depth) and the additional delay time from 400 to 600 ms (More).
