About Al Brown

I’m a Musician with a limited budget who tries to figure out how to produce music and videos by myself at a reasonable cost but with the best quality, hopefully nowadays we can produce music and videos with a laptop, a cheap sound card and some free or inexpensive plugins…

ThorpyFX Scarlet Tunic

The King of Drive pedals is back! Adrian Thorpe. The man, the myth, the legend. The Scarlet Tunic is his latest ThorpyFX’ latest overdrive pedal. Amp in a box doesn’t do the pedal justice. Yes, it has all the elements. But it goes further than that. It really transforms your base amp tone into something totally else. The inspirations for this pedal were the Selmer Treble and Bass 50, Vox AC30 and Hiwatt DR103. If you’re looking for British shimmer and jangle: look no further!!
