Win a Walrus Audio Emissary Parallel Boost FX Pedal
Thanks to pedal maker Walrus Audio, The Guitar Magazine are offering you the chance to win the fantastic new Emissary Parallel Boost
The Emissary is a two-in-one boost pedal in a compact, high quality enclosure that’s designed to make leads stand out, slides sing, fingerpicking come to life and to push tube amps into great natural breakup. The Emissary has two independent boost circuits that run in parallel, working together to help make your tone a ‘sinus-clearing experience’, as Walrus rather amusingly suggests!
Deceptively simple, the Emissary has just two knobs and a toggle switch. The top knob controls the volume for the ‘bright’ boost circuit – a clean, high-headroom JFET boost, with a slight emphasis on higher frequencies to liven up your tone. The bottom knob controls the volume for the ‘mid’ boost circuit, which features a targeted boost at either 1kHz or 800Hz selected by the toggle switch. You can use the two boosts on their own, or mix them together at your leisure, simply by turning up each knob to the desired level. Cleverly, the bypass footswitch features a momentary function, so you can press and hold to activate the pedal, only for it to disengage as soon as you release the switch.
