Walrus Audio Archives - Pedal of the Day

Walrus Audio


The crew at Walrus Audio are no strangers to killer delay sounds (see our Bellwether review here), so we were beyond stoked when the announcement of their latest, the ARP-87, was unleashed on the world. Taking the great stuff we love about multiple delay sounds and putting them all into one pedalboard-friendly effect, this multi-function delay box displays many sonic abilities with ease and tranquility. Be sure to set your phasers...

If for some reason, you still don’t know about or haven’t experienced any of the sonic marvels that Walrus Audio continually puts out into the effects community, you need to get on that quick (after you read this and watch the demo, of course). For the rest of us, it comes as no surprise that Colt and the crew have come up with an incredible new tremolo to unleash on the world: the Monument Harmonic Tap Tremolo. Featuring...

In the modern world of pedals, there are a handful of companies who are consistently pushing the envelope and getting new sounds and sonic options out to the masses, and have the following and resources to do so. One of our favorites is Walrus Audio, who just put out today’s featured pedal, and knocked another one right out of the park. The Red is a high-gain distortion pedal, complete with a huge range of dirt, a big EQ section...

It’s always a welcome sight when a box wrapped in clear Walrus Audio tape shows up on our doorstep, and their latest offering is one for the ages. The 385 Overdrive is actually based off of an old film projector (huh?), giving it a unique sonic flavor and tone. How they replicated this circuit remains a mystery, but we sure had fun putting it through the ringer to see what it could do. Apparently, using tube-powered audio...

Today’s guest review comes to us from Max F. – find him on SoundCloud (@MaxFaith)! While octave pedals are available in a variety of configurations it’s hard to find units that operate in the desired octave range and track well enough to be useful and musical. Enter the Walrus Audio Luminary Quad Octave Generator. The fine people at Walrus have designed this pedal to work in the lower and higher octave ranges with some of the finest...

Around here, we get pretty excited whenever the crew over at Walrus Audio unleashes a new pedal release on the world, as we have reviewed just about all of their pedals, and they just keep getting better and better. This time around, they’ve gone to modulation town, with a wicked mash up of chorus and vibrato, but with some new options for ultimate tweakability and customization not seen too often in a pedal of this nature. From...

Colt and the crew at Walrus Audio are continually popping up with new pedals that change the way you think about certain effects, and how to use them in your rig. Today’s featured pedal takes a classic effects and essentially turns it around, flips it upside down and magically creates a powerful phaser tool that’s sure to make your playing improve and your tone sparkle. The Vanguard Dual Phase is a series phaser, with 2...

I was born in 1977. A year later, Reinhold Messner became the first human being to ascend Mt. Everest without the use of supplementary oxygen. Fast forward 37 years, and that brings us in a roundabout way to today’s pedal review. My buddy Colt and the boys and girls at Walrus Audio have created a low-gain, transparent overdrive that will make you feel as though you, too, have reached a peak of immense height and struggle....

Each time Walrus Audio announces a new pedal, guitarists around the globe, including myself, get instantly curious and excited. This past winter at NAMM, they debuted a couple of pedals that looked VERY interesting, and we’ve got one of those for you today. The Bellwether Analog Delay produces warm, vintage, analog delay sounds with ease, and offers a bunch of modern options as well, in order to make it extremely customizable to...

The Harvester is a limited edition mid-range overdrive pedal produced by Walrus Audio of OKC USA The Harvester features bass, treble, level and drive knobs along with both a low gain and a high gain toggle switch. The amount of overdrive is entirely up to you. With the gain option set to low you’ll have extreme clarity, and a nice bit of break up to really help push your chords over the edge. Kick on that high gain though, and...

Walrus Audio makes some pretty incredible effects, from straightforward rock boxes to off-the-wall Fuzz/Tremolo 2-In-1 units, and a bunch of cool stuff in between. Their first offering of a usually simple pedal is unorthodox and ballsy as well, as we’ve come to expect from Colt and Company. The Plainsman is a Clean Boost, but with a few twists and turns along the way. Here goes… This gray little box is tiny, a perfect fit...

Walrus Audio makes some really great effects pedals, and continue to push the boundaries with the new, inventive gear they’ve come out with recently. The Mayflower Overdrive is one of their staple pedals, and a favorite for anyone who wants to add a little crunch and beef to their sound. Like all Walrus pedals, the Mayflower is as tough, rugged and sturdy as you get, with a beautiful blue enclosure with more of the great graphic...

Walrus Audio Janus Tremolo/Fuzz

Well, this is a big, badass beast. Plain and simple. I love that Walrus Audio thought to put a Fuzz and a Tremolo in the same pedal, because they really do go together, if you think about it. Not to mention the layout and options are fantastic, and the design is impeccable. Plus, it has JOYSTICKS! I’m getting sucked back into playing Super Mario Bros. on my first Nintendo Entertainment System in the mid-’80s…without...

I have been a fan of Walrus Audio‘s gear for a while now, and this one just keeps that wonderful tradition going strong. The Iron Horse is exactly that: a true distortion beast, caged in a metal enclosure, waiting to be unleashed on the Earth in all it’s fiery glory…alright, maybe that’s a bit much, but this pedal is a serious piece of sonically distorted goodness. Dirty, dirty, dirty. This is a distortion not...

The reverb pedal you’ve been waiting for is now here (no, not the big blue one that has to do with the Sky) – the Descent Reverb from Walrus Audio. This is a complex reverb on steroids, allowing you to access a ton of different tones and modes, most with a stomp of your foot, for easy use and brilliant sound. Let’s get to it, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover. First off, it looks amazing coming out of the box...

Compressors have always been hit or miss for me, and I haven’t really been able to keep one on my board for longer than about 2 months, before I got frustrated with it, or thought it was just taking up space where another pedal could thrive, or any number of reasons I concocted in my brain. That all changed when I met the compressor of my dreams, the Deep Six from Walrus Audio. The best function in my opinion on this fantastic...

Walrus Audio‘s Voyager Overdrive has 3 control knobs, making it an easy pedal to maneuver and dial in. The tones that this high-quality piece of gear produce are outstanding as well, as we’ve come to expect from great companies like Walrus Audio. Sturdy enclosure, great switches and knobs and the guts are a thing of beauty as well. The real standout for this drive pedal to me is the amount of Tonal Range that you have to...
