Iron Horse V2! ...

Announcing the Iron Horse Distortion V2! The true bypass, high gain behemoth has been updated to help steer the stallion or let the reigns loose for full on distorted onslaught. Level control has been adjusted so that unity gain is easier to dial in. Tone control now has more treble on tap if so desired. The Distortion control’s range has also been smoothed out making lower gain more accessible. Available now! www.walrusaudio.com/products/iron-horse-lm308-distortion-v2
