The Walrus Audio EONS comes with five selectable Fuzz textures along with a special “Voltage” control that allows you to crank up to 18 volts into the pedal’s circuit to create massive, open fuzz sounds.
Walrus Audio EONS
It has a five-position knob that offers the following clipping configurations. These can be thought of as different styles of fuzz, each with its own distinct flavour:
- I. Traditional fuzz with silicon soft clipping, which is well rounded and has a great sound; compressed and smooth.
- II. Silicon clipping with an additional bass boost that raises the low-end at the beginning of the circuit; compressed and crunchy.
- III. Germanium Soft Clipping with a feeling of “What if a distortion and a fuzz had a child?” ; crunchy and dynamic.
- IV. LED clipping diodes with a slight high-end cut; dynamically dark.
- V. Hard oversteering silicon transistors combined with LED and silicon soft-clipping diodes. The roughest of the modes with tons of gain: compressed, loud and angry.
In addition to these 5 states of fuzz, you also have a 2-band EQ with bass and treble as well as the voltage control for further sound shaping. With this, you can feed up to 18 volts into the circuit of the pedal to create massive, open fuzz sounds. Or you can lower the slider to 3 volts to get a starved, gated fuzz sound.
According to the manufacturer, experiments with the voltage and fashion controls lead to numerous different fuzz sounds, from vintage-inspired sounds ranging from the stages of Woodstock to flannel-clad grunge to chaotic three-cord punk rock.
This could be a great fuzz pedal for players that need variety, yet are pushed for space on their pedalboards. Check it out in the video demos below to hear it in action.
