Walrus Audio 385
Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

The 385 overdrive is an extremely dynamic amp-like overdrive based off of the stock amplifier circuit in a 1950’s Bell & Howell 385 film projector. The amplifier inside the projector is a dual 6V6 tube amplifier with two controls – Volume and Tone. It’s an incredibly responsive amp, capable of nice round clean tones and screaming overdrive. With this pedal, our aim was to capture the dynamic magic that this amp possesses, and make its thick overdrive tones easily attainable through a pedal.

The Volume knob sets the overall output of the pedal. Since the EQ is capable of large boosts and cuts, you will need to increase this knob if EQ cuts are made, and decrease it for EQ boosts.

The Gain knob on the 385 is similar to the volume knob on the Bell & Howell amp. The amp does not have a master volume - only a single volume knob that controls the gain in the pre-amp section of the projector, which sets how dirty and responsive the amp will be. Run the 385 Gain knob low for warm clean tones, that will still break up when hit hard, mid way for responsive grit, or high for huge walls of drive, just like the amp.

The Bass knob allows you to boost or cut bass frequencies. When the knob is at noon, the response is flat. When you turn the knob down, you are cutting bass. When you turn the knob up, you are boosting bass.

The Treble knob allows you to boost or cut treble frequencies. When the knob is at noon, the response is flat. When you turn the knob down, you are cutting treble. When you turn the knob up, you are boosting treble.
