Walrus Audio Fundamental Fuzz Pedal Overview
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 3 sliders for tweaking the sound and a three-way switch for changing pedal modes. The result is a line of 8 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 Fuzz is a 3-mode aggressive fuzz pedal with a wide tonal range. It can live anywhere in your chain: hit it with your favourite overdrive or push it into another crazy distortion.
Gain – The Gain slider sets the amount of gain applied to your guitar signal passing through the fuzz circuit.
Tone – The Tone slider controls the frequency response of the signal after distortion. Below centre cuts highs and above centre cuts lows.
Volume – The Volume slider sets the overall output volume of the pedal.
Slide Switch – The slide switch allows you to change between 3 distinct different flavours of the pedal. Each position has different clipping modes or tone profiles.
Gate - Lowers bias voltage in main fuzz section, creating a gated and starved sound. Note: Changing the bias lowers the overall level of the pedal compared to the other modes. With plenty of gain on tap, use the Volume slider to compensate.
