Walrus Audio Unveils the Warhorn

A transparent overdrive pedal that’s capable of punchy rhythm and searing Texas blues leads.

Oklahoma City, OK (March 7, 2017) -- In what may be their busiest year yet, Walrus Audio is charging into spring with their next release. The Warhorn.

A new midrange overdrive that is just, pure, noble and ready to lead your tone into glorious battle. The Warhorn is a transparent overdrive pedal that’s capable of punchy rhythm and searing Texas blues leads. For added versatility, the pedal features a toggle switch that provides two flavors of clipping. The up position is a more compressed, symmetrically clipped tone. The down position is an asymmetric, more open and organic sound. The Warhorn includes level, drive, bass and treble controls providing a large range of tweaking and shaping options to find your original tone.

The Warhorn comes in “prismatic gold” enclosure with white, cream and black ink. Artwork features a warrior at the front lines brandishing an intricate battle horn leading his army in a victorious battle.

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 Warhorn for a retail price of $199 and is available for pre-order now at www.walrusaudio.com and will soon be available with our authorized dealers.

Official release date is set for March 14, 2017.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
