Video: A New Era for Walrus Audio

Last year, Walrus Audio released a new pedal called the Ages Five-State Overdrive. It packed five different clipping modes into one pedal with a blend knob for dialing in exactly the flavor of gain you're looking for. Now, the brand has iterated on that five-state format with a brand-new high-gain distortion pedal called the Eras Five-State Distortion.

According to Walrus, the new unit features a five-position rotary knob offering various gain stages that users should think of as "different flavors" of the pedal. Those modes include the following:

  • Tight mode with a slight mid-cut, LED hard clipping, and internal volume control. Fastest response, great for palm muting.
  • Tight mode with a slight mid-cut and silicon hard clipping. Smooth with added compression.
  • Dual clipping mode with a slight mid-cut and both silicon and LED hard clipping. Rich & full with added sustain.
  • Rhythm mode with a deeper mid-cut, LED hard clipping, and internal volume control. Scooped mids, tight response.
  • Rhythm mode with a deeper mid-cut and silicon hard clipping. Rhythmic, warm and full.

The Eras Five-State Distortion comes in a translucent red enclosure, with art by Adam Forster featuring an apocalyptic four-horned, winged bull. Hear it in action in the video above. You can also pick this pedal up now right here on Reverb for $199 USD.
