About

Stocking ThorpyFX pedals has honestly been a dream of mine, one of those brands I have really admired and hoped I could stock one day, and I'm so proud to say that has finally happened!

ThorpyFX is a family run business located in Brackley, England. The team is made up of Adrian and Georgia steering the boat. They've since been joined by a small team of designers (including Dan Coggins formerly of Lovetone fame), two full time in house pedal builders, a few PCB builders in house and remote, plus the lovely ladies who load enclosures, polish and shine ready to ship, and parcel up to head to your front door. 

The Dane Mkii

THE DANE we all know and love just turned 5. Five years of great tone and five years of an awesome Thorpy partnership with Danish Pete. But, it was time for a refresh. A crisp new look with a smaller, black anodised aluminium enclosure and a bonus new feature. The Dane still has the two sides for Drive and Boost, only it now has the option to switch the Boost from the standard DP (Danish Pete) clipping to Heavier Clipping (HC), similar to the second channel of the Heavy Water, just to give you that bit of extra grit should you want it.

THE DANE MkII is a creation designed to meet the exacting needs of Danish Pete. However due to the design brief needing to cover the wide palette of sounds he uses, the pedal finished up being the most versatile pedal available on the market for such a clean design. THE DANE has two sides - a complex light to medium gain overdrive on the left and a high headroom super clean boost on the right. The pedal is designed so that the boost runs into the drive side. This yields three distinct tonal variations ranging from clean boost all the way through to full and fat saturation. The pedal is also designed to clean up impeccably from your volume control and as such it is ideal for dynamic players who like to adjust their playing style.

How to control it

LEVEL: Use this control to increase the volume output of the drive side of pedal.
GAIN: This control is used to increase the level of drive available on the drive side of the pedal, everything from
lightly crispy through to heavier sounds is available here.
TONE: This control gives allows you massive amounts of control over the treble and bass response of the drive.
Counter clockwise yields smoother sounds whilst clockwise yields brighter sounds.
BOOST: This control gives allows you massive amounts of control add high headroom clean boost to your signal, use it on its own as part of the boost side of the pedal or when stacked into the drive it can really make the
pedal sing with complex harmonics and layered overdrive.
LOWS: This control gives allows you massive amounts of control to add low end to the boost side of the pedal.
The amount of low end on tap is fantastic for fattening up even the spankiest strat bridge pickup.
HC/DP: Toggle switch to allow you to choose between Heavier Clipping (like that on the left side of the Heavy
Water) and the original Danish Pete Dane boost mode.
LEFT FOOTSWITCH: This turns the drive side on/off.
RIGHT FOOTSWITCH: This turns the boost side on/off.

Specs/Power

POWER: THE DANE is designed to work at voltages of 9V DC. This should be from a quality centre negative power supply such as the Gigrig Generator or Voodoo Lab Pedalpower Plus 2. Do not attempt to use this pedal with other voltages or polarities.
COMPONENTS: To ensure consistency, reliability, low noise and tonal supremacy the DANE is made with extremely high quality components. 1% metalfilm resistors, WIMA and Panasonic capacitors where possible, A Burr-Brown Op-amp and robust through hole plated PCB’S. In short, all of this means you won’t have to worry about your pedal and it should give you many years of inspiring tonal bliss.
WARRANTY: The DANE is guaranteed for 2 years against manufacturing faults or defects. This guarantee is applicable to the original owner and is not transferable.
