ThorpyFX The Dane MKII
Pedalboard-friendly remake of The Dane overdrive.
ThorpyFX The Dane we all know and love just turned 5. Five years of great tone and five years of an awesome partnership with Danish Pete. But, it was time for a refresh. A crisp new look with a smaller, black anodised aluminium enclosure and a bonus new feature. The Dane still has the two sides for Drive and Boost, only it now has the option to switch the Boost from the standard DP (Danish Pete) clipping to Heavier Clipping (HC), similar to the second channel of the Heavy Water, just to give you that bit of extra grit should you want it.
The Dane MKII is a creation designed to meet the exacting needs of Danish Pete. However due to the design brief needing to cover the wide palette of sounds he uses, the pedal finished up being the most versatile pedal available on the market for such a clean design. The Dane MKII has two sides – a complex light to medium gain overdrive on the left and a high headroom super clean boost on the right. The pedal is designed so that the boost runs into the drive side. This yields three distinct tonal variations ranging from clean boost all the way through to full and fat saturation. The pedal is also designed to clean up impeccably from your volume control and as such it is ideal for dynamic players who like to adjust their playing style.
