    Hi just thought the kind people of TGP would like to know a bit about my new venture www.thorpyfx.com.

    After a lot of hard work my first independent design the GUNSHOT is now ready and available for purchase worldwide. Its an interesting take on guitar overdrive in that it allows you to get a whole load of different overdrive flavours from one simple box. The trick to this is the ability to blend two indecent gain circuits to produce a harmonically rich and tube like tone. The two parts of the circuit are also EQ'd for different responses. The mixing of this also allows you to cut through in the mix.

    The enclosure has been engineered to be beautiful as well as robust. All of my pedals will have a military theme owing to my experiences serving in the British Military as an EOD specialist. There are plenty of other pedals in the final design stages too.

    Anyway, enough from me: heres some photos and a short video clip to demonstrate some of what the GUNSHOT overdrive can do.

    Wanting to bump this as I have a Gunshot and it's the most original OD pedal I've heard in years.

    The win is the depth of options and the amount of sounds, using the clipping calibre knob.

    A brilliant, brilliant pedal and up there with Trombetta designs in terms of originality
