It started with a chance encounter. Years before I had bought what I felt to be the final word on compression for my board, after using a variety of a half dozen or so in my rig over a time period of two years. That pedal was customized with a couple minor tweaks by the builder. I was content. I enjoy using compression with my drive pedals so it's almost an always on device for me.
Then one Summer day I was going through a batch of pedals that were for sale. I had one of my guitars, but nothing else from my rig. Realizing a more accurate way to try them out was having use of a compression pedal in tandem. This was my first time using the Deep Six (D6). I knew nothing about this pedal, but the more I fiddled with the D6, the more I liked it. I never did get to the other pedals the being sold, but I left happy having discovered, and buying, the D6.
The Blend control is a must-have on ANY comp pedal for me (check). Of note, not many others that are reasonably priced have usable Attack control (check). The final control that won me over is Tone. At the time I didn't know it cut bass, but I liked what it was doing around the 1 o'clock position. From transparent smoothing to jazz player squish the D6 does it, all at a super low noise floor. The Deep Six is the first Walrus pedal I own, but definitely not the last.
Hey Decibolic, Your story is not the first we have heard like it! Thanks for getting a Deep Six! Enjoy it! - Walrus Audio
