The Walrus Audio Iron Horse delivers all of the high-impact, high-gain distortion you need to create hard rock and heavy metal with real authority. A 3-way toggle provides a trio of unique distortion varieties, each of which can be dialed back for a lower gain overdrive effect or cranked up for full-on sonic mayhem at any volume while Level and Tone controls give you the power to fine tune your sound. As with all Walrus Audio effects, the Iron Horse is wired for true bypass, so it won’t color your sound when it is off, and it runs on a single 9 volt battery or a standard AC converter.
The Iron Horse has Level, Tone and Distortion controls as you would expect but it also has a little 3-way toggle switch. This lets you choose between clipping diodes and has a serious impact on the tone. Like the Voyager, this one is also nicely finished with a great graphic, the build is rock-solid!
The Distortion control will give you anything from a seventies distortion sound to all out mayhem. The amount of gain this pedal delivers is stunning, it will even get you into an over the top, fuzz-like wall of sound. Depending on your pickups, the pedal will deliver tight distortion tones until the control hits about 2:00. Even at these amounts of gain, you can get great articulation with the 3-way set in the middle. If you're looking for great distortion, the Iron Horse will deliver a swift kick to your backside!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. If you’re looking for pedals and power supplies that bring new, old sounds to the table and look like they were created just for you, check out Walrus Audio.
