Manufacturer's Description from Walrus

The Deep Six is a true bypass studio-grade compressor in stomp box form, inspired by the performance of the Universal Audio 1176 with the simplicity of the Ross and Dynacomp. Offering a Level, Sustain, Attack, and Blend control, the Deep Six will give you unmatched versatility at a price you can afford. The pedal can be powered from a 9V battery or DC Supply. Polarity will never be an issue as the Deep Six comes standard with a polarity correction circuit. The internal voltage is doubled to 18 volts giving you the maximum amount of headroom for your sound while maintaining a typical current draw of 8.9mA for extended battery life. The Deep Six also offers a Blend and Attack control which allows you to use the pedal with active pickups or humbuckers. The blend feature allows you to use high output instruments while truly being able to dial out any distortion that may be present.

About Manufacturer

Man, there are a lot of pedals out there. Why are we any different? Why are we any good? What’s the why?

I’ll start here – We hear a lot of charming sounds featured on albums a lot of us are listening to. From Dawes to Sigur Ros, from Sting to Mastodon, from Bonnie Raitt to Kendrick Lamar, and from Flying Burrito Brothers to Harry Styles, we are constantly listening to you play music. We are moved by songs, riffs, solos, melodies, lyrics and album art that come from your creativity and hard work. We’re moved by what moves you. That directly correlates to the development of a sound, a box, a pedal. Before we ever sell one, these creations, these prototypes get sent to a chain of artists that we look up to. At Walrus, we all play guitar but not like these folks can. They give it a strenuous workout that includes tour, studio use, weekend gigging, and maybe an occasional Instagram tease. After we get everyone’s notes back, we make changes, then do it again. When it’s perfect (to us), you see it. Then you play it and make songs that move us and inspire us to make better gear. I’m really glad that you are part of our process. I’m thankful that you’re just looking at our site. Thank you.

Specifications

• The Deep Six is the compressor for people who love the compression effect and for people who hate it.

• It has a wide range of control from subtle compression to crush.

• Long sustain capabilities.

• Blend control allows you to mix your dry and affected – so you can hear the compressed signal but still hear your natural action from fretwork and attack.

• Dial fully off to get all dry and bleed in the compression as you turn the pot.

• 9-volt DC, Center Negative, <100mA.

• Made in USA.

Updates to the V3 are as follows:

• Added Tone knob (bass cut) for the ability to shape the low end of your guitar signal.

• Soft switch/relay bypassing for smoother more reliable operation.

• Moved to top mounted in/out jacks.

• Updated art by Adam Forster that gives a humble nod to the original art that started it all.
