Inspired by a vintage FET compressor, the Walrus Audio Deep Six is meant to give guitarists old school compression in a compact form factor.

Thankfully, compact doesn't always have to mean limited, because Walrus Audio equipped the Deep Six pedal with four knobs. Three of which give you control over essential parameters like level, sustain and attack, while the fourth knob lets you blend your dry signal to taste, in case you want a more subtle compression effect. Finally, it comes with a boutique quality finish and artwork, that easily sets it apart from other compressors.

Features

  • FET Compressor
  • Parameters: Level, Sustain, Attack, Blend

Pros

The Walrus Audio Deep Six pedal continues to get high ratings for its combination of good sound and build quality.

It also gets a lot of thumbs up for its sonic versatility and boutique appearance.

Cons

There are some users that report noise, but most consider its background noise levels to be acceptable.
