    Ah, just sussed out the name of one of the new pedals on Thorpyfx’s Facebook page

    https://www.facebook.com/thorpyfx/photos/a.1554361581488276.1073741828.1532216770369424/2042064322717997/?type=3&theater

    I see “NER” and 4 stars.

    Put the two together and add another star, and you get a “5 star General”.


    Whoooooooooo! Yeah!

    My guess is the new 5 Star ‘boNER’ pedal  :)

    No - it's the NERD pedal - the 5 stars are for his math's test result.
    It gets you a wedgie or a Chinese burn at breaktime

    Many guitars have a re-sale value. Some you'll never want to sell.

    The Ner Ner Ner Ner Ner Ner Ner Ner pedal for playing the Batman TV theme. 
    I feel the warm, healing, liquid presence of God’s genuine cold-filtered grace.

    Hmmm. Just had a proper look and I don't think it's an R. Right hand leg looks wrong for an R, and I think it's more like a N or M, so something with NEN, NEM in it, but my brain is drawing a blank.

    Going by @ThorpyFX's not so subtle hint, I would of went with Informant or Informer, but that doesn't fit the text or spacing. And everything else I can think of relating to four stars wouldn't fit.

    Well ... to follow through in talking about your products ...

    That Germanium Veteran is a great pedal. The hard part about having this on my pedalboard is the dreaded suspicion that the Silicon Veteran is a better pedal, despite me not having ever tried one. The 'boost' is as clear/clean as you'd ever want it. And I'm appreciating just how different the fuzz is from overdrive. Fantastic.

    Keep up the great work!

    Enjoy NAMM .... and California ... and to get you in the mood ...

    it’s difficult this one. I don’t think either is inherently better than  the other. The only way I can describe it is like this.

    imagine two brothers, one moves to Canada and the other stays in the UK. Both have similar lives.

    on a reunion, they are so very similar but they have different accents from each other. Depending on your ears, you’d prefer one or the other or maybe you’d be unable to state a preference and this is where I sit.

    for me, I’m loving the silicon at the moment, but sometimes I just need the germanium sound for specific things.... thankfully I have both.

    come to the Brum guitar show and try the silicon, you may find you just don’t care enough to worry  after that.

    I'm definitely getting the Fat General Compressor

  • ThorpyFXThorpyFX Frets: 3963

    So.... the teasing ends now.


    The Fat General is our take on what a compressor should be. It is an evolution of Dan coggins original Otc-201 compressor. With knobs for sustain, blend and treble, it has the ability to squish without destroying your Guitars fundamental sound. There are two modes available, “Juicy” is a compressed signal with a small amount of dry signal blended into it. As the sustain knob increases the dry signal reduces. The “BLEND” mode introduces parallel blending so that you have more dry signal sitting parallel to the compressed signal but remaining full, fat and awesome. Rather than dulling your guitars signal you’ll find the treble control allows you keep and enhance the sparkle from your guitar.


    The Team Medic provides 

     first aid for your pedalboard.  It is a hybrid pedal, that offers a switchable Class A buffer followed by a powerful three band Active Eq. In eq mode it has loads of clean headroom and clean boost available to fundamentally change your guitar signal or the pedals that precede it. In switched boosted mode it provides an additional 20db of boost on top, enough to clip the cleanest of valve preamps into overdrive. Headroom is provided by a -9v to +9v rail to rail internal 18v power arrangement. It’s final trick is that it provides all of this in a supremely quiet hifi manner.


    These two pedals work flawlessly with our preceding pedals and I am over the moon with how they sound, I hope you will be too.


    All the best Thorpy.

    Mike does do great demos of pedals. I still prefer my germanium version methinks. But I never say never ;)

    Whooooo! I wasn’t far off with the Five star General guess.

    A compressor, eh? My Keeley 4 knob might just have to find another home.
