Third in the series of Walrus Audio’s Five-State pedals, the Eons fuzz pedal follows the Ages overdrive and the Era distortion, which offer five different gain states and five distortion modes respectively. 

Adopting the same basic format, a five-way mode switch gives you distinct variations on the fuzz effect, which can be tweaked with an array of five knobs. Volume, Gain, Bass and Treble controls may be standard kit in a dirt pedal, but the secret weapon here is the fifth knob, which can adjust the pedal’s operating voltage, starving the circuit from 18 volts down to a ‘battery-on-its-last-legs’ three volts.
