Reluctant pedal user

James8936, 05.02.2017
I play a 63 reissue Strat through an early 20's The Twin Fender using the on board distortion channel.
I wanted something between the clean and the overdrive with a bit of break up when pushed. The 385 does this beautifully when set straight up on the drive control through the clean channel of the amp. Really excellent. Sounded a bit solid state when played alone but in a band this goes in the mix.
Kicking it in on the overdrive channel can be good too depending on the sound you are after. Gives the neck pic-up much more cut.

Old Filmprojektorsound im Pedalformat - Genial!

05.01.2017
I use the 385 as the first drive pedal on my board for lower gain. (Git: Reverend Double Agent, usually neck p90 and Vox AC30 which almost goes into the precursor). For my Gain-Lastigstens Sound Let me run the 385 in the Walrus Audio Voyager.

Like all Walrus audio pedals, the 385 comes packaged in bulk and is solidly finished. (The design / the stamp-printing are as always with WA very successful). The pedal does not leave much to be desired. The LED is very bright but pleasant.

The features of the 385 may seem limited (how should it be different for Drive Pedals of this format). It is nice that the EQ section is divided into low and high, and before "the gain" is switched, which offers a wide range of possibilities the EQ with the Zerre interagierren leave. What adds even more versatility is the fact that the 385 is incredibly dynamic. A wide range of tensions can be controlled via the stop (in the case of most other Drive pedals). The sound selbser is (for my sound) ideal, because it emphasizes the mids (not like a TS808), but still beautiful. The drive sound itself, however, is very different from conventional drive pedals because of the inspiration from an old tube amplifier in Ben & Howell 385 filmprojectors. So if you want to have a versatile and very dynamic Overdrive, which also has its own drive sound, is very well served!
