The Walrus Audio Deep Six is a four-knob true bypass compressor pedal that uses the Universal Audio 1176 as its studio performance benchmark. It has been produced with a fish image on the casing in several different colors.
The following is his signal path, as explained by Andy Othling to Strymon: this1smyne buffer Walrus Audio Deep Six Electro Harmonix Micro POG Walrus Audio Mayflower Earthquaker Devices Bit Commander Xotic EP Booster Ernie Ball MVP (with Boss TU-3 on tuner output) Electro Harmonix Superego Malekko Ekko 616 Dr. Scientist Tremolessence Strymon El Capistan Boss DD-5 (in hold mode for stutter/glitch effects) ZVex Instant Lo-fi Junky Strymon TimeLine Strymon BigSky Disaster Area DMC-3 XL controller is connected to both the Timeline and BigSky via MIDI Two this1smyne mini expression knobs are also controlling different parameters on the Timeline and Bigskymore
To keep her oscillating time-based effects in check, Puckett sandwiches them between two compressors. A Walrus Audio Deep Six squashes the input while the Xotic SP strapped across the output enhances her reverb and delay trails without blowing out her amp when she cranks the feedback.more
THE DEEP SIX IS A TRUE BYPASS STUDIO-GRADE COMPRESSOR IN STOMP BOX FORM, INSPIRED BY THE PERFORMANCE OF THE UNIVERSAL AUDIO 1176 WITH THE SIMPLICITY OF THE ROSS AND DYNACOMP.
Offering a Level, Sustain, Attack, and Blend control, the Deep Six will give you unmatched versatility at a price you can afford.
The pedal can be powered from a 9V battery or DC Supply. Polarity will never be an issue as the Deep Six comes standard with a polarity correction circuit. The internal voltage is doubled to 18 volts giving you the maximum amount of headroom for your sound while maintaining a typical current draw of 8.9mA for extended battery life. The Deep Six also offers a Blend and Attack control which allows you to use the pedal with active pickups or humbuckers. The blend feature allows you to use high output instruments while truly being able to dial out any distortion that may be present. 9V DC8.9mA ? 4.77 x 2.9 x 2.3 inches
I find the deep six to be much more musical than typical guitar compressor pedals. I can't imagine ever using a compressor in the future that doesn't have a blend knob.
