Fat, Sizzling Octave Fuzz and '60s-style Filter FX
Walrus Audio's Kangra Filter Fuzz is a true-bypass guitar pedal that serves up fat, sizzling octave fuzz along with '60s-style filter envelope effects. Saturday Night Live guitarist Jared Scharff is a certified fuzz fanatic, and he asked Walrus Audio to design a modern filtered fuzz pedal inspired by his go-to vintage fuzz, the Kay Fuzz Tone. The ensuing collaboration produced the Kangra, which delivered the grit and vintage vibe Scharff was looking for, in a roadworthy pedal with modern features and eye-popping Adam Forster artwork inspired by Jared's trip to the Kangra Valley near the Himalaya Mountains.
Note: The use of an isolated power supply is recommended for powering all Walrus Audio Pedals. Daisy chain power supplies are not recommended. Power supply not included.
The Kangra's M/V switch lets you select between two distinctly different flavors of fuzz. In the Vintage (V) position, you get a ragged, "spatty" breakup with shorter, gritty sustain that's ideal for single-note lines. Flip to the Modern (M) position for a tighter, more "forgiving" fuzz with longer sustain that lends itself to a wider range of playing styles.
The Kangra is also equipped with versatile filter that has Sensitivity, Resonance, Frequency, and Envelope Filter controls. Use the filter on its own to sculpt your tone, or flip the Envelope Filter switch for funky '60s-style sounds. About the filter, Jared Scharff says: "I wanted to go for that vintage MCP 3000 lowpass type of thing… without it being too wah pedal like."
