What's going on my friends?!? Sean Pierce Johnson here and welcome back to Stompbox Saturday! After a reasonable wait, we FINALLY get to take a look at one of my "most anticipated pedals" of 2022: the @walrusaudioeffects MAKO M1 High Fidelity Modulation Machine!!!
Since the release of the D1, I've hoped to see modulation be added to the MAKO Series and 2022 sees it's arrival in a gorgeous "deep ocean blue" pedal enclosure. But is the Mako M1 everything I hoped it would be? Is it the most powerful pedal Walrus Audio has EVER released? I hope to answer both of those questions today!
