Introducing the Tacit Blue, a vintage inspired gem in the ThorpyFX "Vintage Reimagined" series. The ThorpyFX Tacit Blue is a germanium fuzz pedal, offering a unique twist on the classic fuzz sound. Dive into a world of sonic versatility as the ThorpyFX Tacit Blue adds its magic touch to your music. Whether you're after a subtle note enhancement or a wild, thick fuzz, the ThorpyFX Tacit Blue has got you covered. And, if you prefer a rich lower gain overdrive, it's here to infuse your sound with character.

Inside the ThorpyFX Tacit Blue, a small transformer is your secret weapon. It simulates the ideal pickup location at the circuit's front end, offering you the freedom to place the ThorpyFX Tacit Blue anywhere in your pedal chain. We might recommend going early, but hey, be a pedalboard anarchist and put it wherever you please.

Fine tune your fuzz experience with the "Smooth" control. It dials back the woolly fuzziness by adjusting your signal's input impedance, catering to both humbuckers and single coils. Play around with it, experimentation is the name of the game. Crank it fully clockwise, and you'll experience that classic fuzz face vibe.

The "Fuzz" control is your gateway to fuzz galore. Unlike the usual fuzz face, the ThorpyFX Tacit Blue does not bunch up in the last 5% of the dial. This means you'll enjoy a broader range, breaking free from the constraints of traditional circuit styles.

The "Volume" control, adjusts the fuzz's output level. Want to add some heat? The "Bias" control has your back. Crank it up for a more aggressive bite or roll it down for a mellower vibe.

In most cases, Internal Trimpot’s are for manufacturing, but it's there for those who like to experiment. Play around with asymmetrical settings to add character and intrigue to your fuzz.

Power up the ThorpyFX Tacit Blue with a 9V DC supply, using a standard polarity input like the Gigrig Generator or Voodoo Lab Pedalpower Plus. Please don't venture into other voltages or polarities.

When it comes to components, ThorpyFX spared no expense. The Tacit Blue is built with top tier materials, including 1% metalfilm resistors, WIMA and Panasonic capacitors, and NOS Germanium Transistors. It's all mounted on a sturdy gold plated PCB for consistency, reliability, low noise, and tonal excellence. In a nutshell, the ThorpyFX Tacit Blue is built to last, ensuring years of inspirational tonal bliss. Get ready to unlock the full potential of your sound with the ThorpyFX Tacit Blue.
