The ThorpyFX Field Marshal is a MKII version and reimagining of the Lovetone™ Big Cheese circuit. The Lovetone™ Big Cheese boutique fuzz pedal was originally designed in the early 00’s.  The ThorpyFX Field Marshal expands on that legacy to deliver more volume, lower noise, more flexibility all in a much smaller pedalboard friendly footprint. 

The ThorpyFX Field Marshal is designed to provide you with a supremely nasty foot switchable fuzz pedal that evokes the sounds of everything from a smooth fuzz through to a nasty spitty broken speaker style of fuzz. 

Tonal flexibility is provided through a tone stack bypass foot switch that allows you to have two different fuzz sounds from the same pedal.  The balance control is linked to the tone stack bypass and can be set to the same volume as your core sound or as a boosted fuzz for solos. 

The ThorpyFX Field Marshal is equipped with a three toggle switch for gated fuzz, flat mids and enhanced mids. This gives enhanced tonal flexibility and cutting mids that will slice through a band mix. 


  • VOLUME: Use this control to increase the volume output of the ThorpyFX Field Marshal 
  • FUZZ: This control is used to increase the level of fuzz, everything from lighter fuzz through to searing fuzz 
  • TONE: This allows control over the treble and bass response of the ThorpyFX Field Marshal.  Counter clockwise yields smoother sounds whilst clockwise yields brighter sounds.  This control is very interactive with the mode switch and CHEESE footswitch 
  • BALANCE: This control adjusts the volume attributed to the CHEESE footswitch when engaged.  Everything from an attenuated sound through to a massive volume boost for solos 
  • MODE SWITCH: This is a mode switch and allows you to choose between gated fuzz, mid scoop and mid boost fuzz settings.  When the CHEESE switch is engaged, this switch is over ridden and has no impact on the sound 
  • LEFT FOOTSWITCH: This turns the ThorpyFX Field Marshal on and off 
  • RIGHT FOOTSWITCH: This “CHEESE” control bypasses the tone stack entirely for a different tonal response, turning the gating off and giving you a level boost depending on where you set the balance control. When this is switched in the tone control and mode switch DO NOTHING.

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
