Walrus Audio 385 Overdrive - A Highly Sought After Amp Sound Born From A Projector

Dynamic, responsive, tube-like, and amp-like. the Walrus Audio 385 Overdrive Pedal is boastfully responsible for all those adjectives. For decades now, guitarists in search of pure tone have been taking the tube-powered audio sections of vintage Bell and Howell 385 Filmosound projectors and using them as a guitar amp. 

After endless hours of research on vintage Bell and Howell 385 Filmosound projector, Walrus has created a fantastic new overdrive modeled after the projector’s tone. The Bell and Howell 385 gracefully lends itself to create an amazing guitar amp. Its simple, but effective controls, plus dual 6V6 output section make for a simple and extremely responsive amp that has an amazing compressed overdrive when cranked.

This was the sound and feel Walrus needed to shoot for in an amp-like pedal. The 385 was developed to have the same simple but effective tone control as it’s grandfather. The amp has this as well but bass and treble are stacked behind the single tone knob. With our design breaking them up, we allow for a much wider array of tones to be achieved. The user is able to boost and cut bass and treble, allowing them to be creative with mid-frequency scoops and bumps.

The pedal is internally running at 18v, which helps us nail the same dynamic feel of the amp in a stompbox. This means it is extremely sensitive to how hard you dig in – just like the amp. 


  • The 385 comes in a matte black finish with yellow ink featuring the original artwork of a vintage Belle and Howell 385 projector ready to give you the dynamic tone you’ve been searching for.
  • The die-cast enclosure’s exact size is 4.77" x 2.6" x 1.39”.
  • Power requirements are 9VDC (100mA minimum).
  • The use of an isolated power supply is recommended for powering all Walrus Audio Pedals.
  • Daisy chain power supplies are not recommended. Power supply not included.
