Thorpy FX The Fat General is a compressor which gives you sound more sustain and balance without added noise or "pumping". Designed in collaboration with Dan Coggins of Lovetone/Dinosaural.
Blend: Adjusts the volume level of the compressed signal. In Juicy-mode this control is a volume control with a possibility of boosting the signal. In Blend mode this control adjusts the mix of compressed and dry signals.
Sustain: Adjusts the level of compression. At 7 o'clock you will get a mild compression and at 5 o'clock you will get maximum compression. Sweet Spot is usually around 11 to 2 o'clock.
Treble: Controls the amount of high frequencies and allows you to dial in just the right amount of sparkle to your sound.
Mode: Chooses between the pedal's two operating modes. In Juicy mode the signal has a mix of 90% compressed and 10% dry signal. In Blend mode the dry and compressed signals are mixed in with each other and you cat set the balance with the Blend control.
