Thorpy FX Veteran gives you a silicon fuzz based on a vintage Fuzz Face and a booster based on Dallas Rangemaster in one pedal. Both the fuzz and boost sides have a lot more control than the original. Sounds awesome, as all Thorpy FX pedals do.
- Controls (Fuzz side):
Fuzz: Adjusts the amount of gain/fuzz.
Volume: Adjusts the output volume level of the Fuzz side.
Smooth: Adjusts input impedance. Has a great effect on the tone and the character of the fuzz. Full fuzz with heavy low-end at 5 o'clock. If you want a tighter and clearer sound, turn the control down.
Bias: Bias control has the biggest effect on the amount of mids and volume. Also affects the character of the pedal.
- Controls (Boost side):
Boost: Controls the level of volume boost. Boost side comes after the fuzz in the signal chain, so raising the boost raises the volume level coming out of the pedal.
Range: Adjusts the boost frequency range. If you want a classic treble boost, keep this control close to 5 o'clock. At 7 o'clock the boost is focused on low frequencies and at 12 o'clock on mid frequencies.
- Power Requirements: 2,1 mm 9V DC centre negative power supply, under 100 mA.
- True Bypass
- Handmade in England using the best components available (1% metal film resistors, WIMA and Panasonic capacitors, etc).
