Walrus Audio ARP-87 review

‘Arping on

Our Verdict

A neat pedal that delivers fun in spades.


  • Loads of fun.


  • No delay time knob.

Based on the Spin FV1 chip, which is a mainstay of boutique builders, the ARP offers four delay modes as well as a dedicated tap tempo footswitch and options for delay subdivisions, all within a compact package

The lack of a delay time knob means the tap footswitch has to be used to set delay time, but that’s the only annoyance. 

Of the four modes, the digital and lo-fi are the most fun, while a dedicated tone control lets you darken the delay to your taste. The only drawback is that at this price it may be worth saving for a delay monster like the Eventide Space, Boss DD-500 or Strymon TimeLine.
