ThorpyFX is a relatively new entrant into the boutique effects pedal arena. Founded in 2014 and releasing its first product in 2015, the company aims to deliver on its promise of producing Superior Fidelity Tone Machines for the Electric Guitar.
After a full career in the British Army, Major Adrian Thorpe MBE was encouraged by his wife Georgia to follow his passion for building effects pedals and make his amazing creations available to other tone hounds. Initially Thorpy built pedals as a form of relaxation that allowed him to have pedals better than anything available to buy on the market.
