Introducing | ThorpyFX Pedals
Founded in 2014 by former British Army Major Adrian Thorpy, ThorpyFx set out to create "Superior Fidelity Tone Machines for the Electric Guitar." The very next year, they released their first pedal, the Gunshot Overdrive.
Here we are in 2021, and with the help of long-time friend Dan Coggins, formerly of Lovetone, ThorpyFx's catalog numbers nearly twenty effects, carefully crafted from the finest quality components available, designed to stand the test of time, rigors of the road, and still deliver superior sound.
Wazzap! Now that we have your attention with a cool joke, Tristan is totally jazzed to show you one of his favorite pedals, the Boss VB-2 Vibrato Waza Craft*, a unique twist on the underrated pedalboard essential featuring momentary “Unlatch” functionality for quick, on/off flourishes. (*Color-matched socks not included.)
ThorpyFx's first, the Gunshot Overdrive, puts every other overdrive in its crosshairs with a proprietary "gain engine" for maximum tonal range.
The Bunker Drive beefs up the famous Brown Source, increasing volume and adding a texture control while packing it all into a smaller enclosure.
The Fallout Cloud Fuzz pays tribute to Triangle-era effects while simultaneously doing its best to blow them all out of the water.
The Warthog Distortion goes right for the gut of all other distortions, offering incredible sonic range from a crystal-clear clean boost to scorched earth crunch.
The Peacekeeper Low-Gain Overdrive pairs an active, post-gain control for treble and bass with a pre-gain mids/presence control for total tonal tailoring.
Those who know know Danish Pete. His signature overdrive and boost, The Dane, is the ace-in-the-hole for dynamic players who demand versatility.
The Heavy Water isolates The Dane's desirable boost circuit into a standalone enclosure, adding a germanium diode-based boost in the second channel.
The Field Marshall Fuzz improves on the legendary Big Cheese, shrinking the footprint, increasing the volume, and adding a tonestack bypass.
The Deep Oggin brings Lovetone's Dan Coggins back into the spotlight with 100%-analog chorus and vibrato circuitry, just like how it used to be.
The Camoflange Flanger is another all-analog blast from the past, with modern functionality making it more versatile than any vintage model.
The Veteran Si Vintage Fuzz and Boost squeezes silicon-based Smiley- and Rangemaster-style circuitry into one exclosure.
Thorpy promotes the OTC-201 compressor to create the Fat General, adding balance and sustain to your signal without the extra noise.
The Team Medic Buffer, EQ, Boost, and Boost + offers tonal first aid for all, equally suited to the electric guitar as it is to bass and more.
