Colt Westbrook and Jason Stulce from Walrus Audio pedals visit That Pedal Show. We demo the EB-10 EQ Boost guitar effects pedal Monument V2 harmonic tremolo 385 Overdrive, Slö reverb, Julia chorus and ARP-87 delay.
Hello! Mick here. We’ve always loved Walrus Audio, so when pedal builders Colt and Jason called up to say they’d be visiting dear old Blighty, we just had to have them on the show to talk about life, the history of their business and maybe an effects pedal or two.
We kick off with a quiz, talk about some history stuff and get a listen to their latest and greatest.
Enjoy the episode!
