Walrus Audios 385 Gets a Dual-preset Upgrade

Some of the distinctive sounds in guitar history have emanated from rather unexpected places. So it was with Walrus Audios 385 Overdrive, a pedal based on the audio output section of an old tube-powered film projector. Delivering the same unique tone that made the original 385 such a success, the 385 Overdrive MkII elevates the formula with an enhanced control section. The MKII pedal now features a secondary A/B footswitch, A/B Gain knobs, and A/B Volume controls, allowing you to instantly switch between two custom-crafted presets on the fly. Moreover, a new switchable 385+ setting slams the input of the pedal with an additional gain stage to cover even wilder and heavier sounds. For the guitarist seeking an utterly idiosyncratic dirt pedal to cut through the sea of overdrive stompboxes, Walrus Audios 385 Overdrive MkII raw, raspy bite delivers in spades.


Dedicated A/B preset controls

When we first got our hands on the original 385 at Sweetwater, we couldnt help but be impressed by the sheer variety of tones on tap. After all, its a pedal that models a full-fledged tube guitar amp (film projector origins notwithstanding), so it makes sense that even the slight tweak of a volume knob or gain control can completely transform your tone. The 385 Overdrive MkII capitalizes on that tonal flexibility with a secondary A/B footswitch and dedicated A/B Volume and Gain knobs. This handy setup allows you to dial in two drastically different tones, granting the 385 Overdrive MkII the ability to instantly swap between edge-of-breakup rhythms and dimed lead tones at the stomp of a switch.

385+ switch unlocks an additional gain stage

Theres no denying that the 385 Overdrive MkIIs snarling sound lies firmly within old-school amp overdrive territory, but what if youre after just a touch more gain? Simple: flip the 385+ switch to blast the 385 Overdrive MkIIs input section with an additional gain stage for a seriously aggressive degree of saturation. From bolstering low-output single-coil pickups to searing dirt-laden solos, the 385+ switch effectively turns the 385 Overdrive MkII into a dual-voiced monster of a stompbox.
