ThorpyFX The W.O.P.R.

Guru pedal designer Adrian Thorpy of ThorpyFx has a page on his company’s website dedicated to his “Special Projects,” gathering all the brand’s one-offs, special runs, or Charity donation devices. The WOPR is a pedal created for a friend that wanted to have a (Triangle Muff-style) Thorpy Fallout Cloud and a Rangemaster Trablebooster-style circuit in the same pedal.

Probably the most aggressive and massive-sounding device in the UK company’s roster, this limited-edition pedal is a version refined by Adrian, who replaced the Fallout Cloud circuit with an even more brutal-sounding fuzz. And in case you are wondering: yes, it’s named after the AI supercomputer in the film Wargames.
