Thorpy FX WOPR - Special Project 4

Continue Shopping or Checkout




The WOPR is one of those pedals that started with an artist/friend wanting something to sound a bit different and elevate their sound beyond what we normally offer. Oli Brown (Oli Brown and the Dead Collective, formerly of Raveneye) has been a friend for a while so I thought I could help him out. He initially wanted a Fallout cloud coupled with the silicon Rangemaster-inspired circuit from the Veteran. This combo was absolutely massive sounding and Oli loved it and has used it for years now.

Something made me come back to this circuit, but I wanted to take it even further, and here was born the WOPR. The Fallout Cloud was removed and replaced with a new circuit based upon the FC concept but with more aggression, more sizzle, more everything. This with the Rangemaster leaves a trail of sonic devastation in its wake. The name WOPR is a nod to the AI supercomputer in the film Wargames. And like the movie you can choose between playing Noughts and Crosses/Tic/Tac/Toe or Global thermonuclear war.

We haven't done any demos of this pedal, its just to risky to the YouTube servers to unleash this pedal on that platform. If you think you can handle it, give it a go. If you cant handle it..... We understand, its vicious. 

Internally the pedal is immaculately built using premium 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, 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.
