Walrus Audio Launches Fundamental Series

Walrus Audio Launches Fundamental Series

Walrus set out 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 new pedal users.


Each Fundamental pedal has three sliders for sound tweaking and a three-way switch for changing pedal modes. The result is a line of pedals that will keep you covered from your first band practice to a sold-out arena.

The Fundamental series allows Walrus Audio to become part of a guitar player’s journey much earlier but still incorporates the audio fidelity and build quality that they’ve spent the last 12 years developing for their core line and Mako series. Walrus wants to make it easy for newer pedal users to dial in precise and emotional sounds, but for these pedals to also be something a professional would be happy taking on tour with them.

The initial eight pedals in the Fundamental Series line are the Drive, Distortion, Fuzz, Tremolo, Chorus, Phaser, Delay, and Reverb. Each is housed in a matte black diecast enclosure which is 4.33” x 2.16” x 1.61”. Power requirements are 9VDC (100mA minimum).
