A spacious reverb that spans low-key plate and demented, enormous cosmic reverb colors is a gas to use and easy to own.

Fun to use. Wide spectrum of sounds. Nice build quality at a great price

Can be hard to remove high harmonic content at all but the least trebly tone settings.


Walrus Fundamental Ambient


With variable voices, accessible prices ranging from 99 to 129 bucks, and slide controls that evoke old synths and vintage Jen pedals, Walrus Audio’s Fundamental series effects are functional, stylish, and dish a lot of awesome sounds at a nice price. The newest addition to the Fundamental series, the Ambient, will be good news for budget-constrained atmospheric musicians that otherwise settle for less-durable pedals at the market’s most inexpensive extremes. Some of those pedals are pretty cool, but the Walrus’ construction quality, sense of substance, and function—which is flat-out fun—make it a substantial alternative to those entry-level artifacts for a minor additional investment. It puts a super-wide range of sounds at your disposal, too.
