The Walrus Audio Descent is an inspired take on digital reverb processing with an emphasis on its built in +1 and -1 octave effects that may be used with all 3 of its Hall, Reverse, and Shimmer modes. For those who like reverbs that shimmer, this pedal will be a haven of majestic reverb sounds. The -1 octave makes for some cavernous, booming reverb worthy of its subterranean namesake. And you’ll find some great traditional reverb sounds and cool reverse reverb effects as well. If you’re looking for the best octave/shimmer reverb effects pedal, the Descent offers some sounds quite unlike any other pedal and is definitely worth more than an audition.
The Descent was designed to create ambient textures of sound, from thick and endless hall reverbs to symphonic shimmers. The Descent is a three mode reverb system; hall, reverse, and shimmer. In each mode, the user has the ability to feed +1 and -1 octaves into the reverberated signal. The Hall mode will feature a classic reverb sound that can move your signal from a small-room-echo to a haunting long hall- echo. The Reverse mode smoothly flips your signal to playback unique responses and can be manipulated with pre-delay time controls. Shimmer mode highlights the octave features, dry signal, -1, and +1 to mix in your signal and creates a symphony of sound.
The Descent offers you eight controls to precisely hone in your perfect reverb. In addition, the user can use an auxiliary momentary switch in the fav input to switch the pedal on/off and/or save presets. If you have an already crowded pedal board, you can set your Descent at the back of the board and run a small SPST switch to the front of the board so you don’t lose valuable real estate. The Fav input requires a TRS cable to be used. The expression pedal control works with most on-the-shelf expression pedals. This feature allows the user to set the high and low parameters of each control and then fade in and out the those controls by moving your foot up or down on the expression pedal.Why We Love Walrus Audio
Walrus Audio is a collective of artists, musicians and engineers attempting to find the balance between art and performance in sound manipulation. Throughout the years they have been inspired by sounds created by our favorite companies: the perfect breakup on an overdrive; a thick, punchy distortion; an endlessly sustained reverb; a self-oscillating delay. Of course, they had to give it a shot. Through many months of late night breadboarding sessions, circuit problem-solving, and sonic tweaking they have come up with a range of guitar pedals as versatile as they are functional. We love Walrus Audio because they create products that have a specific flair and make guitar effects that are as interesting to play as they are to look at. Look for Walrus Audio products at Lucci Music, online and in store located in Colorado Springs, CO.
