Walrus Audio Unveils the Iron Horse V3

Walrus Audio continues to sharpen their offerings of versatile, quality dirt boxes with a fresh update to the Iron Horse distortion. The Iron Horse is Walrus' take on a classic distortion circuit that's thick, punchy, riffy, and rowdy. With the help of the Si/LED (Silicon/LED) knob and wide range of the distortion knob, this true bypass, high-gain behemoth can be finely tuned for clear overdriven sounds or let the reigns loose for a full-on distorted onslaught.


Updates

  • Top-mounted jacks
  • Soft relay true bypass on/off
  • Fixed volume drop-off when the distortion knob is at minimum
  • Re-imagined the hard clipping toggle as a blend style potentiometer, that allows you to blend between symmetrical silicon and diode clipping for a new variety of tones.

Walrus Audio Pedal Play: Iron Horse High-Gain Distortion

The Iron Horse V3 comes in a Gold finish with black ink. Artwork by illustrator David Hüttner features a new battle- ready stallion cloaked in armor.

The die-cast enclosure's exact size is 4.77" x 2.6" x 1.39". Power requirements are 9VDC (100mA minimum).

Walrus Audio is offering The Iron Horse for a retail price of $199 and is available as of October 26, 2021, at walrusaudio.com and with our authorized dealers worldwide.

An overachieving overdrive that gets way bigger than its name suggests.

Sweet balanced crunch tones. Dynamic. Sparkling, full, and clean at attenuated guitar volume. High-quality build.

Pretty expensive.

$249

Overdrive pedals don’t often set my world alight—even great ones. But I’ve spent a month with the England-built Great Eastern FX Small Speaker Overdrive, and it remains attached to the other end of my coil-y cable. Ostensibly, the Small Speaker is meant to be a variation on the tweed-Fender-Champ-in-a-box theme. However, both the pedal’s name and the Champ associations fail to do justice to how large and alive it sounds and feels tethered to a bigger amp.
