Thank you for supporting Mr. Black and taking the trip down the Downward Spiral with us. This is not a normal pedal. Do not try to use it like one.

The Downward Spiral is essentially a delay effect and that’s a great place to start, but please don’t use it like a normal delay pedal; it won’t make any sense. Don’t worry, you’ll get the hang of it.
