385 Overdrive

The son of a projector. 

Yes, for real, the 385 by Walrus Audio is built after the Bell & Howell Filmosound Projector from the 1950s – therefore being a very different Overdrive Effects Pedal. We read on the net it’s being described as an “amp-like” and “tube-like” pedal.

Whatever it is, it sounds good and definitely provides that warm tone of vintage film projectors. Just like the Bell and Howell 385 Filmosound, the Walrus Audio 385 is a simple pedal, you will find on it two EQ knobs (treble and bass), volume and gain. That is it. We found the Walrus Audio 385 to be responsive and natural in feel, we liked Walrus’ deviation from the original Filmosound by providing bass and treble EQ knobs instead of one tone knob, it really does make the 385 a more versatile pedal and a real joy to play through.
