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.

ALGORITHMS

Spring - The Spring program emulates an excited spring reverb commonly found in tube amps with loads of transducing drip. Easily go from subtle to full-on surf rock. Experiment with the decay knob to get more than average amounts of reverb not found in traditional amp spring reverb tanks.

Hall - The Hall program provides the acoustics of large live sound spaces like concert halls to arenas. Longer decays and higher X knob settings result in a massive wash of ambiance. Shorter decay and lower X settings allow for a more intimate reverb expression.

Plate – The Plate program emulates a smooth analog plate reverb with nice even diffusion inspired by famous plates like the EMT 140.

BFR - BFR is a no holds, big, f____, reverb. This is more than a giant arena reverb. It’s a hall-esque reverb with rich and lush decay in a vast cavern filled with choirs of angels.

RFRCT (Refract) - The RFRCT program allows for lovely, charming, glitch-like, and reverse delay textures hovering over a largely diffused reverb. The Rate controls on RFRCT change how often the glitch and reverse effects occur while Depth controls the overall volume of these elements.

Air - The Air program offers a larger diffused reverb but has a more “crisp” clarity to its decay. Explore slow-building sounds that don’t get in the way of your playing. Air compliments keys and synths as well.
