Walrus Audio Releases Descent Reverb

The Descent offers three presets and can be operated by a remote switcher.

Norman, OK (June 10, 2014) -- The team at Walrus is excited to announce the highly anticipated release of the Descent Reverb. Production is in progress and will begin shipping units out on June 11, 2014.

The Descent captures the height of a harmonic symphony with its shimmer and reverse capabilities, but can also dial in the classic hall reverb functions. With three modes: Hall, Reverse and Shimmer, the user has infinite possibilities for reverb. The dry control gives the user precise control over the amount of un-effected signal, while the +1 and -1 octave controls allow the user to add high and low octaves to the Reverb’s wet mix. The expression pedal output is intuitive and can be easily programmed for one or all of the controls; creating, for example, the ability to bring in and out symphonic octave swells. The Descent works with most on-the-shelf expression pedals.

The Descent offers three presets and can be operated by a remote switcher (available for purchase separately) that allows the user to operate the bypass and preset controls from a small switcher (connected via TRS cable) at the front of their pedal board, freeing up valuable board real estate.

The Descent Reverb is dark blue, with signature Walrus artwork from Nathan Price. As with all Walrus products, the pedal is made with high¬-fidelity components and industrial grade hardware, switches and connectors.

Specs:

  • Three reverb modes: Hall, Reverse and Shimmer
  • Controls include: Dry Mix, Wet Mix, Reverb Time, Diminish, Tweak and control of the signals feeding into the Wet Mix: Dry Signal, -1 (octave down) and +1 (octave up)
  • Three savable presets
  • 9V DC
  • Mono input and stereo outputs, expression control out, remote preset out
  • Made in the USA with a 5 year warranty

The Walrus Audio Descent Reverb carries a retail price of $299.00.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
