The ThorpyFX Fat General is an intuitive compressor that contains controls you won't find on any similar pedal. The stompbox has been redesigned to reduce its footprint to fit perfectly on a Pedaltrain board.
It can be used as a straight-up compressor in Juicy Mode or switched to parallel on Blend mode. This means that the compressed signal is blended 50/50 with your dry signal, so you retain plenty of dynamic range while taming your guitar's attack and adding plenty of punchy goodness.
Founder Adrian Thorpe MBE has also made sure that the parallel mode functions without any phase issues, meaning that it's great for using with bass. It'll ensure your low-end stays pronounced while adding tightness and clarity to your tone.
The Fat General also has a treble control that can be used to either boost or cut the high-end frequencies of your signal. Crank it high for a hot, biting quality, or roll it off to smooth out the tone but retain plenty of resonance.
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 the Fat General. 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, Neutrik jacks and a Burr-Brown Opamp deliver a crisp effect.
