Video: Walrus Messner Overdrive

If you’re looking for an overdrive as transparent as the pure, clean air at the summit of Mount Everest, look no further than the Walrus Audio Messner. Named for and sporting an original portrait of Reinhold Messner, the explorer and mountaineer who first scaled Everest without using supplementary oxygen in 1978, the Messner Overdrive offers transparency that won’t color the natural tone of your guitar.

It’s easy to dial in any overdrive from subtle breakup to a more dramatic crunch with the Messner’s three simple, intuitive controls for Output, Color, and Gain. An added open/closed toggle activates or bypasses clipping diodes, which gives you optimal range to tweak your breakup and your tone. Whether you’re looking for rhythm sounds or more prominent solo drive, the Messner can get you where you need to go.

Watch the video above to see the Walrus Audio Messner Overdrive in action with host Joe Shadid to see how he dials in tons of different tones, and then click the banner to snag a Messner for yourself.
