Low Gain Crunch to Rocking Leads
Normally with an overdrive pedal you would expect just a simple volume, tone, gain control setup. While this pedal does have that its secret weapon comes with its calibre control. This control works in tandem with the gain control as a completely separate gain stage. So you can use can mix and match these different stages to really get the exact tone you have in your head.
Two Kinds Of Drive
A great way to think about the two drive controls on this is that the gain is a mid boost overdrive pedal kind of like the green wonderbox you see everywhere. While the Calibre control is a mid scooped amp style overdrive that has a lot of treble and high end to fill out your sound. By separating the gain stages like this instead of adding more EQ you get a much richer and fuller sound than you would normally find on an overdrive.
If you are the kind of player who uses the volume control on your guitar to control your overdrive and dynamics you will love the Thorpy FX Gunshot. By using the two separate gain stages this pedal is able to adjust really well to your guitars output letting you go from soft clean to a rocking British style overdrive without ever needing to change the sound on the pedal.
Built To Last
One thing we all worry about with our gear is how long will it last. Thorpy FX care about this just as much as you do so this is why they use only the best components they can get their hands on and custom fabricate their own enclosures. With a pedal built like this you know you can rely on it every single night without fail.

"Thorpy FX, however, nails the sound of an amp at the verge of exploding. In fact, if someone were to ask me what my favorite new amplifier was, I might just choose the Thorpy FX Gunshot."
Here's what Thorpy FX say about the Gunshot overdrive:
The GUNSHOT was designed to be the overdrive to beat all others. Sonically most overdrives can sound thin or lack a certain "something" when compared to a real valve amplifier. It's an unfair comparison really, but it is possible to solve this problem. This is where the GUNSHOT comes in, at the heart of the pedal is a proprietary cascading "gain engine" tuned to deliver maximum tonality for as wide a range of amps as possible. Through tweaking the pedals controls to taste you can achieve overdrive flavours from subtle through to searing, think slightly hairy blues to hard rock. The tones produced are addictive and inspiring in equal measure.
Aside from achieving fantastic sonic credentials the GUNSHOT is built like a tank with physical features such as recessed knobs and top mounted jacks. Robust build does not have to come at the sacrifice of looks, the GUNSHOT uses a combination of a beautiful stainless steel laser etched centre console wrapped in a tough baseplate.
Internally the pedal is immaculately built using premium 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, Neutrik jacks and a Burr-Brown Opamp. These are the crème de la crème of the electronics world and when coupled with a robust gold plated PCB and dust sealed potentiometers the recipe is as good as it can possibly be.
Size: (W)70mm x(L)145mm x(H)60mm =(2.75"x5.7"x2.36") designed to fit perfectly across two Pedaltrain spars.
