Point 1 – I love Walrus Audio. Point 2 – I love true bypass strips. Add them together and you get the Walrus Audio Transit True Bypass Looper! For those of you that aren’t familiar with loop strips, basically it’s a single unit allowing you loop pedals in a true bypass loop. This solves a few things.
1. Takes some bad sounding/tone sucking older buffer pedals and removes them from the signal path when not activated
2. Organizes your board a bit. By having a loop strip all the switches are in the front of the pedal board.
3. You can chain pedals in a single loop. One switch could turn on one or more pedals in a loop. Great for leads, etc.
Normally you see true bypass loops in DIY projects or with pretty boring ‘utility’ style enclosures. I really like the look of this pedal. Walrus Audio always has a great sense of style, and they applied the same style to their bypass looper – The Transit. They offer a few options – Transit 3, Transit 4 and the Transit 5. This indicates the number of loops per strip. They also offer standard 3PDT true bypass switches as well as ‘silent’ switches for footswitch options.
Here is a great video by Walrus Audio talking about the Transit:
