Manufacturer's Description from Walrus

A new Era of gain is here with the Eras Five-State Distortion. Walrus is pouring on all the gasoline for a new high-gain distortion to create mythical level riffs that’ll leave everyone seeing red.

Eras is a no apologies, high-gain distortion that’s ready to chug, shred, and palm mute with tight response and multiple distortion textures. Use the Blend knob at max for a full distortion onslaught or roll back the Blend knob to creatively stack and mix other dirt pedals placed in front of Eras. Great for bassists that want to blend in their dry signal as well. Anywhere you set it, the Eras is ready to deliver a diverse world of speaker ripping sounds.

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 Eras features a five-position rotary knob that offers the following gain states:

I.  Tight mode with a slight mid-cut, LED hard clipping, and internal volume control. Fastest response, great for palm muting. 

II. Tight mode with a slight mid-cut and silicon hard clipping. Smooth with added compression.

III. Dual clipping mode with a slight mid-cut and both silicon and LED hard clipping. Rich & full with added sustain.

IV. Rhythm mode with a deeper mid-cut, LED hard clipping, and internal volume control. Scooped mids, tight response.

V. Rhythm mode with a deeper mid-cut and silicon hard clipping. Rhythmic, warm and full. 

Think of each position as a different “flavor” of the pedal. Blend in dry signal or other pedals in combination with the gain states for a near-infinite amount of distortion sounds.

The Eras comes in a translucent red enclosure with yellow, cream, and black ink. Artwork by Adam Forster features an apocalyptical four-horned, winged bull ready to stampede into any mosh pit. The enclosure’s exact size is 4.77 x 2.9 x 2.3 inches. Power requirements are 9VDC, center negative (100mA minimum).
