Walrus Audio Fathom Multi-Function Reverb

Pedal enthusiasts and message board devotees may remember seeing a prototype image from early 2017 of a

new Reverb from Walrus leading to lots of messages and speculation of what we were up to. After a complete art

redesign and many more hours of breadboarding, the Fathom Multi-Function Reverb is ready to surface. Easily

go from tasteful, small room reverb to long, modulated trails dripping of ambient goodness. Players will find the

Fathom a very useful tool in a small footprint under $200.

The Fathom features 4 different algorithms. Hall, Plate, Lo-fi and Sonar, which gives a tip of the hat to its older

brother, the Descent with a blendable shimmer/octave. Each algorithm can be modified with the “X” knob changing

pre-delay, filter width or mix low and high octaves, respectively. A three way toggle also offers very tasteful amounts

of modulation to your trails.

With four custom algorithms, trails mode, sustain momentary function, a small footprint and a sub $200 price point,

the Fathom will appeal to players of all genres.

The Fathom comes in a “Arizona Teal” finish with cream and white ink. Artwork by illustrator Stuart Dooley features a

lone one manned sub lost in the chasmic depths searching for the origins of the mysterious Julia.

The die-cast enclosure’s exact size is 4.77” x 2.6” x 1.39”. Power requirements are 9VDC (100mA minimum).

Walrus Audio is offering The Fathom for a retail price of $199 and is available for pre-order now with an expected

release date of January 29, 2017 at walrusaudio.com and authorized dealers.
