Walrus Audio Fundamental Overdrive 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 Drive is a versatile overdrive that allows for a wide range of tones thanks to its 3-mode switch. This is the perfect tool at the front of your chain to set the tone for your whole rig.
Gain – The Gain slider sets the amount of gain applied to your guitar signal passing through the overdrive circuit.
Tone – The Tone slider controls the amount of high-frequency level reduction
