Adrian Thorpe of ThorpyFX was asked to create the ThorpyFX Fallout Cloud by a number of vintage pedal enthusiasts he knows. They were after a Triangle era style fuzz pedal that would work with a variety of guitars (humbuckers, single coil's and P90's) and amps, be bombproof so it can be gigged.
The brief was simple, the task was not, however, after many prototypes and a bit of lateral thinking the ThorpyFX Fallout Cloud was born. The ThorpyFX Fallout Cloud has the ability to beat any four transistor fuzz you have heard (including the best vintage units). By adjusting the perfectly voiced EQ you can achieve fuzz tones from silky smooth through to doom laden whilst maintain the ability to cut through.
Check out the video in the video section if you'd like to hear it in action.
Internally the ThorpyFX Fallout Cloud is immaculately built using premium 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasoniccapacitors, and Neutrik jacks. 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.
VOLUME: Use this control to balance the output of the ThorpyFX Fallout Cloud. Unity (where the volume out matches the volume in) is approximately at the 12 o’clock position, depending on your guitars pickup output.
SUSTAIN: This control allows you to adjust the ThorpyFX Fallout Cloud character from smooth lower gain fuzz through to a more saturated and aggressive fuzz.
TREBLE: This control adds or cuts treble to the fuzz. Fully counter clockwise removes treble and fully clock wise boosts treble. This control is very interactive with the bass control.
BASS: This control adds or cuts bass to the fuzz. Fully counter clockwise removes bass and fully clockwise boosts bass. This control is very interactive with the treble control. Adjusting the bass and treble control allows you to tailor the tonality of the fuzz to match your guitar and amp.
Component Listing and Tech Spec
When buying a ThorpyFX pedal, you can be sure that what you are buying is built with no compromise on quality.
ThorpyFX pedals are designed from the ground up to:
Sound as good as they can possibly sound. During development ThorpyFX pedals are benchmarked against the leading competition and tailored to beat them in all areas
Use only the best components available such as Wima and Panasonic capacitors, 1% metal film resistors, Audiophile grade Op Amps and gold plated PCB's
Use the best quality 3PDT footswitch available, rated for many cycles and with a smooth action. These are costly to use but quality doesn't come cheap
Use robust construction techniques such as off board wired (Neutrik) Jacks and Switches to remove physical stress on the PCB
Integrate protection circuitry to reduce the potential for damage from incorrect power inputs
Use a custom built, gig ready enclosure designed to look great and be built like the proverbial outhouse
Be something you are proud to own and proud to use for many years to come
