Yesterday, Walrus Audio posted this picture on Instagram with the caption “I’m holding something really neat. #butwhatisit” The photo may be super blurry, but it’s pretty clear to see that it’s a large-format pedal with two footswitches, like their Luminary and Monument models. Beyond that, we think some of the commenters are on to something when they speculate that it’s a combination pedal featuring the ARP-87 delay and…maybe a Fathom reverb? There’s what definitely appears to be a spaceship in the middle and a planet in the top-right corner but what’s in the bottom-left hand corner is still unclear, though now that we look at it closer, that shape does seem to suggest the artwork of a submarine and its headlights as seen on the Fathom.
Or maybe it’s a Julia chorus? A delay/chorus combo could be fun. For all we know, it could be something completely unexpected or brand new. Either way it’s cool to know that Walrus is making another large format pedal as it’s been a while since their last. Stay tuned for more!
