Walrus Audio's Ages is a "five-stage" overdrive pedal with innovative features and a versatile overall sound. Ages features a five-position rotary knob that offers different gain states, with two low-gain settings and three high-gain modes, all with their own flavor of either LED or Silicon clipping. Whether you're looking for a saturated, fuzzy sound or a more subtle, cleaner overdrive, Ages delivers. Plus, you can further contour each mode's sound via Volume, Dry, Gain, Bass, and Treble knobs. And with cool, eye catching olive green color and elephant artwork, the Ages is sure to stand out on your pedalboard. With its five modes and straightforward design, Walrus Audio's Ages is a fantastic do-it-all gain pedal.
For Ages, overdrive has been the one effect vital for so many. It’s used to charge through front lines of the mix and deliver a clear message that won’t soon be forgotten to its loyal listeners. Ages is a massively versatile overdrive machine standing at the ready for any amp and pickup combination that is thrown at it. An overdrive with innovative features that can stand on its own and stack well with other drives, Ages is ready to stand its ground and convey an unforgettable sound.
The five-position rotary knob offers the following gain states:
I. Low-gain mode with symmetric silicon soft clipping. Compressed and smooth.
II. Low-gain mode with symmetric LED soft clipping. Pushed, open, and sparkly.
III. High-gain mode with symmetric silicon soft clipping. Increased saturation and tight.
IV. High-gain mode with symmetric LED soft clipping. Saturated, punchy and big.
V. High-gain mode with symmetric silicon hard clipping. Heavy compression, thick and chewy.
Think of each position as a different “flavor” of the pedal. Fine-tune each of these gain states with the dry knob for a near infinite supply of gain options.
