Video: Ryan Adams Signature Walrus Audio Defcon 4 Demo

New from Walrus Audio comes the Defcon 4—a combination boost and EQ pedal designed in close collaboration with Ryan Adams. As a guitarist, Ryan tours with a varied array of instruments, and this signature pedal was specifically designed to gel with both single-coil and humbucker-equipped guitars.

The Defcon 4 offers four distinct stages of tone control starting with the Defcon 1 switch, which engages a 10db MOSFET boost. Atop that boost, you get three bands of EQ with individual toggle switches and rotary knobs to adjust the volume of each section. If you're playing a Strat or other single-coil instrument, you can use the Defcon 4 to boost your mids or roll off some of that high-end bite. If you're playing a Les Paul or something else with humbuckers, you can use the Defcon 4 to cut the low-end a bit to give your tone a little separation from the bass and drums.

Hear these and other applications in the video above as Andy gives this most '80s of Walrus Audio pedals the Tone Report treatment.
