Modern Distortion From Walrus Audio

What really sets the Warhorn apart from other distortion pedals is its clipping/compression toggle switch, allowing you to alternate between a more compressed, symmetrically clipped tone, and an asymmetric, more open and organic sound. If that all sounds a little technical then don’t worry. You can hear the difference for yourself by switching between the two on our TonePedia player.

The Pros and Cons of The Warhorn Mid-Range Overdrive

Of course, every bit of gear has its pros and cons and the Warhorn is no different.


  • It’s easy to use
  • It has a fantastic overdrive sound
  • It has a simple but effective clipping/compression toggle


  • Lower drive settings can get a little lost in the mix
  • The price is affordable but not competitive
  • It’s a little too versatile


Too versatile, you’re probably thinking. How can a pedal be too versatile?
Well, while that last criticism might sound a little harsh, it really is worth bearing in mind if you’re thinking of buying the warhorn. By attempting to be more of an all-purpose overdrive whilst remaining easy to use, the Warhorn does stretch itself a little too thin. Some settings sound fantastic, but others – particularly the high trebles – can sound a bit tiny if you’ve not balanced things just right.

Of course, that’s just our take-away. If you want a truly unbiased review, then you’ll have to give it a listen.
