I enjoyed making the demo for Adrian Thorpe's Fallout Cloud so much I just HAD to team it up with a Floyd-ish backing track (credited in the video) and the St. Vincent for a bit of fun. Well, seven minutes of fun (indulgence) if you can be bothered to sit through it! The Fallout Cloud is another amazing stomp by Thorpy FX and if you're a muff fiend (aren't we all?) you should probably own one.
"I was asked to create the FALLOUT CLOUD by a number of vintage pedal enthusiasts I know. They were after a Triangle era style pedal that would work with a variety of guitars (Humbucker and singlecoil's including P90's) and amps and be bombproof so it could be gigged. The brief was simple, make a triangle era Fuzz that could beat their original 1971 Triangle fuzz pedals when placed head to head.
The brief was simple, the task was not, however after many prototypes and a bit of lateral thinking the FALLOUT CLOUD was born. This pedal has the ability to beat any four transistor fuzz you have heard (including the best vintage units). By adjusting the perfectly voiced EQ you can achieve fuzz tones from silky smooth through to doom laden whilst maintain the ability to cut through.
Internally the pedal is immaculately built using premium 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, and Neutrik jacks. 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"
