Walrus Audio has expanded its popular Mako series with the new R1 High-Fidelity Stereo reverb pedal.

The impressively-spec'd R1 packs six reverb "programs" – Spring, Hall, Plate, BFR, RFRCT (Refract), and Air – that can be saved onto nine onboard presets. 

Most notable among the reverbs is BFR – which stands, literally, for “big f*cking reverb” – but the decidedly glitchy RFRCT (which features adjustable rate and depth) and shimmery Air effects also help the R1 stand out. Additionally, a volume swell can be added to any of the 'verbs for dramatic effect.

The pedal boasts a tweak control for adjusting the depth, pre-delay, and rate, plus a Tune knob that – via a three-way toggle-switch – adjusts high and low frequencies.

Other features on the R1 include 128 presets via MIDI, a sustain/latch footswitch, optional true bypass with trails, and stereo inputs and outputs.

The Walrus Audio R1 High-Fidelity Stereo Reverb pedal runs on 9VDC power, and is available now for $349.
