NAMM 2023: News of Walrus Audio’s Fundamental series first leaked online, when some of the pedals were accidentally shipped ahead of their formal announcement. Now the firm has gotten ahead of the curve by announcing the immediate availability of the range in stores.

The Fundamental series is big news as it sees the boutique firm enter the lower-budget end of the market, creating simple, high-quality, USA-made products at a price point that places them into direct competition with the pedal world’s mass-production giants.
