The Walrus Audio Mako D1 features five stunning and varied delay modes – check out our demo and tell us in the comments below what two modes are your favourites to win this pedal for yourself!
In just a few years, Oklahoma’s Walrus Audio has forged a reputation for handmade sonic excellence. Rave review has followed rave review, but not wanting to rest on their laurels, the Walrus team launched its new Mako series at NAMM 2020, with the D1 being the first offering.
In stark contrast to the company’s previous graphic-heavy enclosures, Walrus have redesigned the Mako series to look like something straight out of the Dieter Rams playbook, with cool industrial lines built for pure functionality.
At the heart of the D1 is a Sharc DSP processor chip and five delay programs: digital, modulated, vintage, dual and reverse. The repeats created by these can be sculpted with the time, repeats, mix and attack knobs, and there’s an additional tweak knob – this offers further versatility via a mini toggle switch which adds modulated, tone and age textures to the echoes.
The D1 also features a division switch giving quarter, eighth or dotted eighth repeats. There are nine internal preset banks which you can cycle through with both foot switches simultaneously and full MIDI functionality allows even more storage in addition to complete MIDI-based control.
For the full rundown on this killer pedal read our review here, and check out our interview with Walrus Audio’s head honcho Colt Westbrook on the development of the Mako series. In the meantime, to be in with the chance of winning a Mako Series D1, simply head over to our Facebook page and comment on this post telling us which two modes are your favourites – that’s it!
