The Thorpy FX Veteran is a combined pedal offering you our take on the very best versions of the Sixties silicon Fuzz (Think Smiley) and Rangemaster style silicon treble booster in one pedal. Sonically we have made this pedal identical to vintage units however the Veteran (Si) is quieter and much more flexible than the original units.
There are two independent foot-switches to control each side. The fuzz is first and it runs into the treble/mids/bass booster. There are six knobs split between two effects. The Fuzz side has controls for Fuzz, Volume, Smooth and Bias. Smooth controls the input impedance to the circuit and gives you a less bass heavy, smoother fuzz. Bias controls the overall "heat" available to the circuit, increasing output volume on tap and the amount of mids in the circuit.
The Boost side has controls for Boost, and Range, allowing you to choose what frequencies to boost, from Bass heavy through mids focused to treble. Combining the two effects gives you absolute tonal armageddon, but still provides a musical and tweakable effect. I have designed the pedal to work using a standard 9V centre negative power supply so you will be able to easily use the pedal on your pedalboard.
External enclosure made from powder coated steel wraparound and a stainless steel laser cut centre piece. Internally the pedal is immaculately built using premium 1% metal film resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, Neutrik jacks. Coupled with a robust gold plated PCB and dust sealed Alpha potentiometers. A mechanical foot switch is used to turn the pedal on and is powered using a 9V centre negative power supply.
