THORPYFX Evokes Syd Barrett With New Scarlet Tunic Pedal

ThorpyFX has just introduced their brand new Scarlet Tunic pedal, which seeks to emulate the tones of the late and great Pink Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett. ThorpyFX describes the pedal as an analog amplifier emulator that came about after the company was asked to “create a pedal that emulated a rare amp called the Selmer Treble and Bass 50” for Lee Harris of the Pink Floyd tribute band Saucerful of Secrets.

What started out as a custom pedal became a project for ThorpyFX, as they dug deeper into the DR103 and AC30 style tones. The company also used a high-quality transformer, allowing the pedal to distort like a full-size amplifier. ThorpyFX also points out the use of 1% metal film resistors, WIMA and Panasonic capacitors, and robust through hole plated PCBs for long-term use.
