The Lillian is a true bypass, all analog, multi-stage phaser that draws layout inspiration from the Julia Chorus.

Oklahoma City, OK (February 1, 2019) -- During WWII, from 1943-1944, over 1,000 women volunteered to fly in the military to help while so many men were away fighting. This program was called W.A.S.P. (Woman Air Force Service Pilots). One specific pilot, Lillian Yonally, inspired us with her story of traversing dangerous skies. From there, the idea of the Lillian Analog Phaser was born.

The Lillian is a true bypass, all analog, multi-stage phaser drawing control layout inspiration from the Julia Chorus. With controls like Rate, Width, Feedback, and D-P-V blend, the Lillian is packed with a wide array of analog phaser goodness waiting to be dialed in. The “Stages” switch allows the user to select 4 or 6 stages which alters the overall voice of the effect from warm and tight phasing with 4 stages to a more complex filtered sound with 6. The D-P-V knob lets you blend between dry, phase shifted, and vibrato (D, P, V) sounds allowing for a wide range of control over the intensity and type of effect. Top mounted input, output, and power jacks as well as soft switch relay bypassing make the Lillian fit well on your board and ensure smooth operation for years to come.

The Lillian comes in Emerald Sky Blue enclosure with artwork created by Cape Town illustrator, Christi du Toit. The die-cast enclosure’s exact size is 4.77” x 2.6” x 1.39””. Power requirements are 9VDC, center negative (100mA minimum).

Walrus Audio is offering The Lillian for a retail price of $199 and is available now at walrusaudio.com and with our authorized dealers.

Updated in all the right places for top notch tone and playability.

Although the pedal has seen multiple color and art variants over the years, it is now receiving an official internal upgrade that will not dissapoint.

Changes to the V3 are as follows:

  • Soft switch/relay bypassing for smoother more reliable operation.
  • Moved to top mounted in/out jacks.
  • Updated art by Adam Forster that gives a humble nod to the original art that started it all.

Gibson 1960 Les Paul 0 8145 is from the final year of the model’s original-production era, and likely from one of the later runs.

The story of 1960 Gibson Les Paul 0 8145—a ’burst with a nameplate and, now, a reputation.

These days it’s difficult to imagine any vintage Gibson Les Paul being a tough sell, but there was a time when 1960 ’bursts were considered less desirable than the ’58s and ’59s of legend—even though Clapton played a ’60 cherry sunburst in his Bluesbreakers days. Such was the case in the mid 1990s, when the family of a local musician who was the original owner of one of these guitars walked into Rumble Seat Music’s original Ithaca, New York, store with this column’s featured instrument.
