The Walrus Audio Slö is a multi-texture reverb, perfect for creating lush, modulated, dreamy ambient soundscapes. The toggle switch allows you to select from 3 different reverb modes: Dark (Lower Octave), Rise (Ambient Swell) and Dream (Latching Pad) to create deep modulation with long, washy trails.
A secondary function allow you to switch between different wave shapes for the modulation on the reverb trail.
Dark mode adds a lower octave to your reverb trail. Create deep and wide atmospheric sounds and channel nightmarish soundscapes.
The X control sets the level of a -1 octave signal that feeds the reverb.
Rise mode is an auto-swell reverb which creates beautiful cinematic swells.
The X control sets the amount of time it takes the reverb to swell in after a note is played. Set it lower for shorter rise times and higher for longer rise times.
Dream mode provides a lush reverb with a latching pad function. Press the Sustain footswitch to latch the signal.
The X control sets the depth of vibrato applied to the reverb trail. Experiment with the X control to add vibrato over the pad. Press the Sustain footswitch again and the pad will decrescendo according to where the decay knob is set.
Slö Wave Shapes
The Walrus Audio Slö also features 3 different wave shapes, accessible by holding down the Bypass footswitch while changing mode.
Smooth and even pitch with up and down modulation.
Asymmetric pitch-up modulation similar to a warped record.
Asymmetric pitch-down modulation for a sinking detune effect.
Slö Momentary Functions
When the pedal is powered but off, press and hold the Bypass footswitch to temporarily activate the pedal for a splash of reverb. Releasing the footswitch turns the effect off and fades it out.
Press the Sustain footswitch for long, dreamy reverb trails which ramp up to near-infinite until released, and then ramp back down to the value of the Decay setting.
In Dream mode, the Sustain switch is latching. Press it once to capture and sustain the current reverb decay for extremely long pad-like sounds. Press it again to let the reverb trail taper off, based on the position of the Decay control.
The Walrus Audio Slö can run with or without trails. In Trails mode, when you turn the pedal off the reverb decay dies off naturally. In No Trails mode, the decay is abruptly cut off when you turn the pedal off. Toggle between modes by holding down the Bypass footswitch for 1 second while applying power to the pedal. Unplug power and repeat to toggle the other mode.
I spent an obsessive amount of time checking out univibe pedals. I'm so glad that I purchased this one from Boost. It is simply fantastic! If you don't believe me, then check out some video demos. Thanks Jim! + JG
This is a fantastic drive pedal. There’s plenty of Plexi style pedals out there and I’ve owned a few, this one stood out for the switchable A/B-B/A switch. The boost side is nice and simple, much like an LPB-1. Not overly clean but a perfect partner to the drive side. The Plexi side is again nothing revolutionary but very good all the same and sounds great, on a par with far more expensive pedals.
The build quality is also top end, very neat and tidy. Squeezed into the single enclosure and with a lifetime warrantee I couldn’t ask for more. I don’t think this’ll be leaving my pedal board any time soon!
Lots of great sounds in this relatively-compact delay / reverb
I’m only just starting to scratch the surface of the KMA MACHINES Cirrus, but absolutely loving it so far. Very responsive to pick attack which means can really control the “ambience” with playing style. Really looking forward to exploring further.
Had a few vibes, absolutely loving this one, check the YT demos, lovely satisfying vibe with all the swirly goodness you could hope for. Beautifully made and reasonably priced. Highly recommended - and Jim at Boost is a top guy
I came across the Formula B Fuzz Rangers via online demos on Youtube, and they all sounded so good that I had to get one. Looking online I found the Boost Guitar Pedals website via the Formula B website as a listed UK stockist. Jim was excellent and the pedal arrived when he said it would and it was perfectly packaged. I would have no hesitation in buying any other product from Boost.
As for the Fuzz Rangers, it is a great pedal. I had to work at it a touch to get the sounds I liked from it, but it seems to react really well to different guitars and different amps with adjustments to volume and tone on the guitar and different amp settings. I found it works best into a slightly cranked amp, and volume roll-off on the guitar offers a great variety of sounds from clean to classic fuzz. Thoroughly enjoying the pedal. Well done Jim, great website and a great selection of interesting brands and pedals..... Which one next????
Having used a number of univibe clones over the years this one truly nails the sound for me, it comes with some clever additions in a pedal board friendly size and is excellent value for money. If you want the true sound of the original this pedal delivers.Special thanks to boost Guitar Pedals for putting this deal together so quickly..
I'm still working my way through all the sounds, but so far I'm loving them all.
Each time I think I've got a fav sound I flip the diode switch and there's another one. Great value for a four-in-one fuzz pedal!!
Both modes really useable. The first can get a wooly or starved/wolly sound or more nasally raw sound depending on how you dial it in.
Mode two can be more mid focused and with both switches down it's just a real nice deep, warm wall of fuzz. Great stuff.
Awesome pedal. Does everything from short slaps, to long endless delays, or echo-verb. The infinite delay feature on the button hold is interesting, though if you need a certain sound out of it like that, you have to be okay with the sound that those settings create when the infinite hold feature is off. I’m sure it will be great for recording some interesting textures, but I don’t think I’d use it live, as the infinite hold sounds glitchy and cuts off very quickly at some of the shorter, more subtle delay settings that I use. The art on the pedal is nice, and the build quality is solid. Comes with a carry bag, for some reason, but I can’t complain. A great unit by any standard, but especially good quality and features for the ticket price.
