Loaded Pedalboard Giveaway: Premier Guitar is offering a gear giveaway in which you can win a Walrus Audio Loaded Pedalboard from Creation Music Company. Check out the list of included pedals (with info from Premier Guitar):
Deep Six: The Deep Six is a true bypass studio-grade compressor in stomp box form, inspired by the performance of the Universal Audio 1176 with the simplicity of the Ross and Dynacomp.
Voyager: The Voyager is a gain/preamp overdrive that boasts a full spectrum of tone from any setting on its simple set of controls.
Harvester: The Harvester is a mid-range true overdrive with a ‘High Gain’ option that is controlled with a toggle switch. The standard settings allow for a rich and textured break-up of your clean signal with the tone section of the circuit split into Bass and Treble controls so you can dial in your precision sound.
Iron Horse: The Iron Horse is a return to the classic distortion: thick, punchy, riffy and rowdy. It is full of high gain and perfectly made for the rock guitarist in need of thick rhythm or cutting solos. Dial back the gain and it can be used as a thick, warm overdrive.
Janus: The Janus is a true bypass, dual joystick controlled Tremolo/Fuzz pedal that allows you to create a landscape of distorted textures. Both the Tremolo and the Fuzz can be isolated and used alone, but can also be used together in series creating thick textures with a lot of movement. Each joystick has a separate X and Y axis that has designated controls.
Bellwether: The Bellwether is a bucket brigade analog delay pedal with tap tempo. Offering analog circuity and up to 1000 ms of lush delays, the Bellwether ushers in a rich soundscape of long and short trails. It can achieve the warm saturated sounds found in delays like the Maxon AD999, and the coveted Boss DM-2, or the repeats can be brightened up with the tone control for more pronounced rhythmic delays. The modulation section allows you to manipulate the depth and rate of the effect applied to your trails; creating a lush special bed of sound. Set the time and repeat controls low to get that classic country slap back sound, or drag them out to achieve shoegaze perfection; dancing on the line of self-oscillation
Descent: The Descent was designed to create ambient textures of sound, from thick and endless hall reverbs to symphonic shimmers. The Descent is a three mode reverb system; hall, reverse, and shimmer. In each mode, the user has the ability to feed +1 and -1 octaves into the reverberated signal. The Hall mode will feature a classic reverb sound that can move your signal from a small-room-echo to a haunting long hall- echo. The Reverse mode smoothly flips your signal to playback unique responses and can be manipulated with pre-delay time controls. Shimmer mode highlights the octave features, dry signal, -1, and +1 to mix in your signal and creates a symphony of sound.
Aetos: The Walrus Audio Aetos is an 8-output, isolated power supply, utilizing an internal custom wound toroidal transformer to provide the highest noise filtering and cleanest power, giving artists the purest sound in their signal chain.
Creation Music Company Streamliner Plus: The Streamliner Plus is a handmade, boutique pedalboard with options that let you give it personal touch. This highly versatile pedalboard is able to fit the needs of complicated rigs and look sharp doing so. The Streamliner Plus is essentially version 2 of its predecessor, The Streamliner, featuring a new low profile Velcro top, an extra row of slots on the top for maximum cable management, a slight design change, and construction improvements all while still having the same features that have always set it apart from other boards.
