    Named for mountaineer Reinhold Messner, the first person to climb Mount Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen, the Walrus Audio Messner Overdrive offers a transparent overdrive as pure and clean as Everest's summit. Designed to preserve the natural voice of your guitar, the Messner uses simple controls and a clipping diode toggle switch, giving you a range of breakup from subtle to dramatic.

    Walrus Audio Messner Overdrive Technical Demo

    <br><br>Walrus Audio Messner Overdrive Technical Demo

    The Messner is a low gain-transparent overdrive boasting a wide range of overdrive possibilities. It is designed to preserve the natural voice of your guitar by not coloring your tone, but giving the user the ability to dial in and out the exact amount of tone they desire.

    A toggle switch allows the user to bypass the clipping diodes from the circuit in the open position and employ them in the closed position, allowing a wide range of breakup from subtle to dramatic. Flip it to the open position and dial in a lower drive setting to add subtle aggression to your tone. Run it in the closed position and turn the gain knob up for more compressed and punchy tones. The color control works in all modes, giving you the ability to dial in brighter tones as you turn it up and darker tones when turned down. If you are looking for a low gain, dynamic overdrive that won't hide your guitar's natural characteristics, meet my friend, the Messner.
