Walrus Audio Introduces the ARP-87 Multi-Function Delay

Walrus Audio Introduces the ARP-87 Multi-Function Delay

The pedal features four different algorithms that can be modified with the “X” knob creating lush modulation depth or filer width.

Oklahoma City, OK (July 12, 2016) -- One of the most anticipated and talked about announcements from Walrus Audio since Winter NAMM has been the ARP-87 Multi-Function Delay. Since the announcement, the delay has gone back to the drawing board and almost completely redone to become even more versatile. Continuing the legacy that its bigger brother, the Bellwether set, the new ARP-87 brings a whole new set of features to the Walrus Audio lineup of delay effects. From rhythmic chasing digital delay to long ethereal lo-fi modulated trails, players will find the ARP-87 a very useful tool in a small footprint.

The ARP-87 features four different algorithms: digital, analog, lo-fi and slapback. Each algorithm can be modified with the “X” knob creating lush modulation depth or filer width, depending on which delay is being used.

With four sub-divisions, trails mode, momentary functions on both stomp switches, small footprint and a sub $200 price point, the ARP-87 will appeal to players of all genres. The ARP-87 comes in a Frosted Charcoal finish with cream and sea foam ink. Artwork by illustrator Chris Castro features a lone ship lost in the Arp Galaxy.

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 ARP-87 for a retail price of $199 and is available for pre-order now with an expected release date of July 18, 2017 at walrusaudio.com and with our authorized dealers.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
