Very impressive overdrive from the superb ThorpyFX featuring his own cascading “gain engine” to give rich, addictive sonics through a wide range of amps. Premium components and an enclosure that will withstand heavy machine gun fire and still look good.
New in stock. See below for more information from Thorpy FX. We discovered the work of Major Adrian Thorpe via the reviews of his discussion-ending early muff clone, the Muffroom Cloud. The build quality and attention to detail of his pedals is stunning, and the tone, superb.

From Thorpy FX:
“The GUNSHOT was designed to be the overdrive to beat all others. Sonically most overdrives can sound thin or lack a certain “something” when compared to a real valve amplifier. It’s an unfair comparison really, but it is possible to solve this problem. This is where the GUNSHOT comes in, at the heart of the pedal is a proprietary cascading “gain engine” tuned to deliver maximum tonality for as wide a range of amps as possible. Through tweaking the pedals controls to taste you can achieve overdrive flavours from subtle through to searing, think slightly hairy blues to hard rock. The tones produced are addictive and inspiring in equal measure.
Aside from achieving fantastic sonic credentials the GUNSHOT is built like a tank with physical features such as recessed knobs and top mounted jacks. Robust build does not have to come at the sacrifice of looks, the GUNSHOT uses a combination of a beautiful stainless steel laser etched centre console wrapped in a tough baseplate.
Internally the pedal is immaculately built using premium 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, Neutrik jacks and a Burr-Brown Opamp. 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.”
