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.
