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.

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! :)

Mein Lieblings Overdrive
Lamarro, 15.06.2021
Besitze es mittlerweile seit ein paar Monaten, ist für mich nicht mehr wegzudenken.
"Jack of all trades, king of none" ... nicht hier ... Es gibt keine clipping modes oder Einstellungen die keinen Sinn machen oder keine Verwendung finden.
Es ist ein sehr Transperentes Pedal:
Und das muss man unterstreichen ... Viele Overdrives komprimieren das Signal ... Irgendwie schafft es Walrus Audio aber immerwieder dass die Anschlagdynamic nie untergeht und man nur seinen Ton verändert ohne den Klang der Gitarre zu verfremden ? Schwer zu beschreiben ;)

Für mich nicht nur ein Overdrive sondern durch all die Funktionen auch ein Toneshaping Tool vorallem für Highgain Amps geworden.

Meiner Meinung nach eins der praktischsten undd besten Pedale von WalrusAudio

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.

A classic Ibanez Tubescreamer or Colorsound Tonebender can fetch many times its original price from guitarists in search of the ultimate killer tone and sustain.
