Alongside this, the brand has announced it will give away two Mako D1 pedals in celebration of the win – all you have to do is head over to the film’s page on YouTube, comment on the video and subscribe to Walrus Audio’s channel to be in with a chance of winning.
If the award itself isn’t motivation enough to enter the competition, here’s some more about the Mako D1: introduced at NAMM 2020, the pedal showed off a new side of the brand. Walrus’ common graphics were gone, replaced by a minimalist, technical aesthetic laid over a new dual-footswitch enclosure. Its myriad controls allow for an incredibly in-depth control of your repeats, from their texture, time division and how reverberated they are to their attack and much more. It all adds up to create a brilliantly capable pedal which we couldn’t help giving an Editor’s Choice award, so it’s no surprise it nabbed the top spot on our Gear Of The Year list.
