Walrus Audio Red High Gain Distortion

The Walrus Audio RED is a mean, heavy, have no mercy distortion pedal. Because transparent overdrive is so 2016 (but we still really like it), Walrus Audio has decided to release a new high-gain distortion that is meant to put hair on your chest, a need to wear a Viking helmet, and a desire to down tune and sharpen your palm muting techniques.

Inspired by the brutal, heavy tones found in early 90's heavy metal and shoegaze bands, Walrus Audio has designed a new high gain distortion that is capable of achieving aggressive, pounding, thick tone that will appeal to everyone from skate punks, to heavy hearted chord spillers, to the Swedish Death Metal players.

The RED is a versatile distortion that is sure to become the new high gain staple on players' boards everywhere. The RED is rich with the inspiring features that musicians expect. Controls include bass, mid and treble boost/cut knobs, volume, gain and a "texture" toggle switch that provides two levels of compression, or clipping. With the toggle up, it creates a heavily compressed and saturated tone. While in the down position a heavier overdriven tone with more headroom is created. Players will find a very wide range of tone in the gain knob. When rolled back all the way, warm, bluesy gains are easily achievable. Putting the gain at 12 o'clock or past opens the door to tones worthy of Norse mythology.

The tour-proof die-cast enclosure's exact size is 3.68" x 4.67" x 1.547". Power requirements are 9VDC (100mA minimum). The RED comes in a lightly textured black finish with red and white ink. Original artwork features a scientist looking into a microscope discovering the virus that is, The RED.
