Walrus Audio Voyager (Pink Edition)

If you follow my blog…who are you? Anyway, what I was saying is…if you follow my blog, you know that I’ve owned this pedal before in the original mint green. I was really excited to try it out. But long story short, it didn’t really do it for me. I sold it. (I’ll go into some detail about how it sounded to me below) Continue reading Walrus Audio Voyager (Pink Edition)

Walrus Audio Deep Six (Compressor)

Here’s my new compressor pedal. I really like it. Previously, I had a Boss CS-2 on the board, which is regarded by most as a pretty great compressor. I agree. Before that, I had a MXR DynaComp. I even had it modified by JHS. But it just wasn’t doing what I wanted. As great as the CS-2 was, I was really intrigued by the idea of having a blend knob on a compressor, which the Deep Six has.

Walrus Audio Voyager

This is the Voyager from Walrus Audio, and it is quite the awesome overdrive pedal. If you love the sound of your amp and are trying to find an overdrive pedal that’ll preserve that tone, this transparent overdrive is what you’re looking for.

I think my personal rule of thumb for choosing a good overdrive pedal is that it is transparent. It was actually pretty tough for me to compare the Voyager with other drive boxes that I currently own because I think all of them are actually quite good at doing this (Lovepedal Amp11, Boss OD-3, Maxon ROD 881). I spent a good deal of time A/B-ing them…and honestly, I’d have to say that they’re all pretty good. In the same way you come to appreciate good headphones, I’d have to spend more time with this thing to see what it has that the others don’t. Maybe its got something up its sleeve, maybe it doesn’t. But man, look at it! I know this matters very little, but it definitely gets points for looks.
