Product Description

Designed in Wiltshire, England, the ThorpyFX Gunshot Overdrive Mini is a redesign of the awesome original now with a smaller footprint suited to Pedaltrain boards. 

Low Gain Crunch to Rocking Leads

Normally with an overdrive pedal you would expect just a simple volume, tone, gain control setup. While this pedal houses all the basics, its secret weapon is the expressive calibre control. This works in tandem with the gain control as a completely separate gain stage. So you can use can mix and match these different stages to really get the exact tone you have in your head.

Two Kinds Of Drive

A great way to think about the two drive controls is by using the gain as a mid boost. While the Calibre control is a mid-scooped amp style overdrive that has a lot of treble and high end to fill out your sound. By separating the gain stages like this instead of adding more EQ you get a much richer and fuller sound than you would normally find on an overdrive.

Volume Responsive

If you are the kind of player who uses the volume and tone knobs on your guitar for dynamics, you will love the Thorpy FX Gunshot. By using the two separate gain stages this pedal is able to adjust well to your guitar's output, letting you range from soft cleans to a rocking British style overdrive without changing the settings on the pedal.

Premium components

ThorpyFX pedals are built to last. The unique recessed look protects the dials from breakage and the dangers of touring. Its metal casing ensures the delicate circuit is well housed.   

Only the very best electronics have gone into building ThorpyFX pedals. 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, Neutrik jacks and a Burr-Brown Opamp deliver a crisp effect.


  • Gain, Tone, Volume & Calibre controls

  • ThorpyFX signature chrome finish
  • Size: (W)70mm x(L)145mm x(H)60mm =(2.75"x5.7"x2.36") designed to fit perfectly across two Pedaltrain spars.

It’s one of the few pedals I’ve ever bought blind, based solely on reviews/videos etc so I was a little apprehensive when it arrived as I’d never used any products from Thorpy before. It’s first gig was (riskily) quite a large one at a racecourse with no time for soundcheck so I was flying blind. Safe to say I was not disappointed! Holy cow!!! The calibre control adds a dimension that I’ve not heard in any other dirt pedal - even others with cascading gain stages. It excels in the medium gain, classic rock territory and can get quite fuzzy when cranked, however there’s not really a bad sound to be had out of this pedal. The string to string clarity is incredible - which was one of my criteria - and you can make it sound “heavy” without using an insane amount of gain as it just has balls in bucketloads. It also has a certain frequency that means it sits really well in a mix. Adrian, I don’t know how you’ve done it but this one’s a keeper. Cor blimey....
