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.
