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 Fat General Mkii

The FAT GENERAL MKII is an evolution of the critically acclaimed OTC-201 compressor. ThorpyFx and the original designer (Dan Coggins) have collaborated to deliver the next level of compression for guitarists. Unlike many other compressors, the FAT GENERAL MkII adds sustain and balance to your signal without unnecessary noise or signal “pumping”. You'll also notice that the FAT GENERAL MkII can be particularly transparent but with a sparkle and clarity that you were missing before. 

Aside from achieving fantastic sonic credentials the FAT GENERAL is built like a tank with physical features such as recessed knobs and top mounted jacks. Robust build does not have to come at the sacrifice of looks, the FAT GENERAL uses a combination of a beautiful stainless steel laser etched centre console wrapped in a tough baseplate. 

Internally the pedal is immaculately built using premium 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, Neutrik jacks and a Burr-Brown Opamp. These are the crème de la crème of the electronics world and when coupled with a robust gold plated PCB and dust sealed potentiometers the recipe is as good as it can possibly be.

This is sonically identical to the V1 version the V2 version has an anodised aluminium Black enclosure.
