Description

The Bellwether is a bucket brigade delay pedal with tap tempo.  Offering analog circuity and up to 1000ms of lush delays, the Bellwether ushers in a rich soundscape of long and short trails. It can achieve the warm saturated sounds found in delays like the Maxon AD999 and the coveted Boss DM-2. Inversely, the repeats can also be brightened up with the tone control for more pronounced rhythmic delays.  The Analog Chorus Engine allows you to manipulate the depth and rate of the chorus effect applied to your trails; creating a deep soundscape of ambient modulation.  Set the time and repeat controls low to get that classic western slap back sound or drag them out to achieve shoegaze perfection.  Take it all the way to 10 to achieve a self-oscillating delay.

Four tap division options are offered to control the rhythm of your repeats: quarter notes, eighth notes, dotted eighth notes, and triplets. Expression control options are offered to swing either the time or repeat controls back-and-forth.  Manipulate the time control to get that Johnny Greenwood oscillation or use it on the fly to manipulate the repeat control; adding long tails to your diamonds.

There are seven rotary controls with black aluminum control knobs:  Tap Division, Time, Repeats, Tone (high-cut), and Level (of repeats). The bottom two rotary controls regulate the Analog Chorus Engine’s Rate and Depth.  This section is employable with an on/off toggle. The Bellwether has five ¼ inch input jacks on the top side of the enclosure: input, two outputs, an effects loop, and expression control. The expression jack receives a TRS input to manipulate time or repeats; selectable by a toggle on the front of the pedal. There are two heavy duty footswitches: one for effect on/off and the other controlling the tap tempo controls by moving your foot up or down on the expression pedal.

5 5/8″ x 4 5/8″ x 1 9/16″

The use of an isolated power supply is recommended for powering all Walrus Audio Pedals.  Daisy chain power supplies are not recommended.

Walrus audio products are covered by a limited lifetime manufacturer warranty.

Although we are not authorised to determine if any repair is covered under warranty, if the item was purchased through World of Music, then we are often the best people to facilitate the claim for you and will do so as timely as possible. Warranty does not apply to cosmetic damage or faults that are a result of user neglect. Although your mate is really handy with a soldering iron, any product modification or home repair will also result in a void warranty.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!
