From Walrus Audio:
The Fundamental Distortion is a 3-mode distortion with the tonal integrity to live on a professional’s pedalboard but with simplified controls friendly enough for even the newest effect pedal users. It covers a wide range of sounds from dark and doom through sharp cutting leads.
For the Fundamental Series, we challenged ourselves to design a set of pedals with the tonal integrity that’s required to live on a professional’s pedalboard, but with simplified controls friendly enough for even the newest effect pedal users. Each Fundamental pedal has three faders for tweaking the sound and a three-way switch for changing pedal modes. The result is a line of pedals that will keep you covered from your first band practice all the way to a sold-out arena. Designed and assembled at Walrus Audio headquarters in OKC, OK.
The Fundamental Distortion is a three-mode distortion. It covers a wide range of sounds from dark and doom through sharp cutting leads.
Gain – The Gain slider sets the amount of gain applied to your guitar signal passing through the distortion circuit.
Tone – The Tone slider controls the signal’s frequency response after distortion. Left of center cuts highs and right of center boosts highs.
Volume – The Volume slider sets the overall output volume of the pedal.
Slide Switch – The slide switch allows you to change between three distinct flavors of the pedal. Each position has different clipping modes or tone profiles.
Dark – Asymmetric silicon clipping with an added high-frequency cut. Think dark and dynamic.
Si – Classic silicon hard clipping diodes. Things get compressed and crunchy.
LED – LED hard clipping diodes. A dynamic and crunchy sound.
Note: The LED clipping mode will be louder due to the nature of the LEDs, so use your volume slider to compensate!
- The Distortion comes in a Black finish with yellow and off-white ink.
- The diecast enclosure’s exact size is 4.33″ x 2.16″ x 1.61”.
- Power requirements are 9VDC (100mA minimum).
- The use of an isolated power supply is recommended for powering all Walrus Audio Pedals.
- Daisy chain power supplies are not recommended. Power supply not included.
