Extremely versatile OD pedal
Kuze, 05.04.2021
This is now my go-to OD pedal on my board for gigs, recording and practice. Sounds Fantastic! This pedal has is own sound, seems rare now for a pedal to have it's own sound rather than being a clone.

Pros: Versatile, 5 clipping options, Dry mix knob, compact, well built.
Cons: None!

Before buying I watched tons of videos on this pedal and honestly they don't do it justice. Unfortunately its almost impossible to test equipment for yourself these days because of Covid-19 but trust me, if you like how it sounds on videos, it will sound infinitely better once you play it for yourself! :)

Versatile little distortion and OD pedal
Bluesrockguy, 20.09.2020
I won‘t get into nuances of whether this is an OD a distortion or whatever. What it does well is provide 5 flavors of drive ranging from light and open to tight and compressed, with a good ability to control tone as well. I use it into a Catalinbread 5f6 and it drives that nicely. Going straight into a clean Blackstar 5 watt, it also shines. It won‘t replace my Iron Horse which does a searing RAT impression. But I could pretty much live with that, the Ages, and clean boost.

El overdrive más versátil que he tenido
El Guru, 10.07.2020
Es díficil que no encuentres un sonido que te guste, increíblemente versátil. La construcción es de boutique, los modos son muy diferentes y todos los controles hacen cambios suaves y definidos. A destacar el "Dry", te permite definir más el sonido y darle más filo.

Lo que más me llama la atención es que tiene su propio color de sonido, no va de "se parece a" o "es un clon de". Sinceramente espectacular.

PROS - Sonido propio, y que se puede usar casi en cualquier género.
CONTRAS - A decir verdad, nada. El precio, por decir algo. Pero vaya, para mí ha sido un acierto rotundo.

Ein Traum Overdrive für Gitarre und Bass
cjvsp, 04.01.2021
Ich nutze das Ages hauptsächlich als zweite Gainstufe nach einem CAE Booster zwischen einer Tele oder Jazzmaster und einem AC30. Auf dem von mir bevorzugten zweiten Modus bleibt das Pedal für mein Empfinden sehr transparent und vermag es, ähnlich einem Bluesbreaker Style Pedal, den ursprünglichen Sound zu erhalten und lediglich mehr Crunch hinzuzufügen. Auch die anderen Modi klingen ausgezeichnet. Die Dynamik des Pedals bleibt stets ausgezeichnet.
Besonders hervorzuheben ist außerdem der Dry-Regler, den ich bisher vor allem von Basspedalen gewohnt war. Er verrichtet ausgezeichnete Arbeit und sorgt für noch mehr Attack im Sound. Und sorgt nebenbei auch dafür, dass das Ages eben auch am Bass eine gute Figur macht und für mich noch musikalischer, weil Bässe erhaltender, klingt, als die verschiedenen Darkglass Zerren.

Die Verarbeitung ist Walrus Audio typisch auf höchstem Niveau, das Design gefällt mir ebenso.

Wer ein vielseitiges Pedal sucht, gleichzeitig aber auch eines, bei dem die einzelnen Sounds durch die Bank weg hervorragend sind, macht mit dem Ages nichts falsch.
