Lately, creative (and crazy sounding) effect pedals have dominated most “Best of” lists – whether year-end ones or NAMM-related ones. Yet, some more traditional pedals are still able to make the cut just because of how good they sound. Enter Thorpy FX‘s The Deep Oggin chorus, selected by Reverb’s Andy as one of his NAMM 2019 pedal picks.
Designed in collaboration with legendary British designer Dan Coggins of Lovetone Pedals, The Oggins is a fully analog, high-end effect designed to provide a 3 dimensional chorus sounds with a level of versatility to meet the needs of all guitarists. Voiced to recreate a classic lush, vintage sounding chorus, the Deep Oggin can deliver a variety of modulation styles from deep and wet to more subtle and shimmery or vibrato-like tones.
Here are the best demo of the Thorpy FX The Deep Oggin – we added it to our list of the Best Chorus Pedals.
None other than Thorpy himself came to our NAMM 2019 Stompbox Booth to shoot this video of The Deep Oggin (see below)!

Thorpy FX The Deep Oggin, Builder’s Notes
The DEEP OGGIN was designed as a collaboration with DAN COGGINS (Former LOVETONE Pedal designer) as his first modulation pedal design since his Lovetone pedal days. This fully Analog Chorus/Vibrato was designed from the ground up to provide the most incredible 3 dimensional chorus sounds with a level of versatility to meet the needs of all guitarists. Faced with hundreds of digital choruses on the market, Thorpy and Dan decided to go fully analog and deliver that vintage chorus that can only come from an analog circuit. The DEEP OGGIN is voiced to provide a variety of chorus styles from deep and wet through to more subtle and shimmery sounds.
With controls for Depth, Rate, Blend, Volume and Treble this analog pedal keeps it functionally simple but with a deceptively feature packed. For stereo pedal enthusiasts, they will be pleased to know that the DEEP OGGIN has both dry and wet outputs.
