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.

AMP MODELS:

The ACS1 models three vintage amp styles crucial to music industry history designated by their places of origin. When running the ACS1 in stereo, one amp can be used through both channels or mix and match amps and cabinets on the left and right channels with the L + R switch. Simply choose the channel you want it to modify, select your amp and cab model, and set your levels. Then flip over to the other channel and choose your amp and cab settings. If you would like to use the same settings on both channels, set the switch to the middle or “+” and dial in all your settings. They will be duplicated on the left and right outputs.

Volume and Gain work together, similar to how they would on an amp. For example, increasing gain levels will also raise overall volume output so adjust the volume knob accordingly.

Fullerton is inspired by the classically bright and clear Fender® Deluxe Reverb®. Crisp clean tones with loads of headroom that players have come to love over the years.

London is inspired by a 1962 Marshall® Bluesbreaker® with a harmonically rich, valve-driven breakup. Articulate and sensitive response. Dartford is inspired by the legendary jangly high-end tones from a 1960s Vox® AC30 with all the bite and chime from the British Invasion.
