The Team Medic is one of Thorpy’s high fidelity designs, made in collaboration with circuit mastermind Dan Coggins. Firstly, the Team Medic can heal any tone loss by applying a low noise, Class A buffer, when the pedal is bypassed. This internally switchable circuit allows you to regain treble and punch over long cable runs. The active Bass, Middle, and Treble EQ can effectively do their job of cutting or boosting by 6dB, thanks to the Team Medic’s high internal voltage. This 18V headroom also aides in pedal stacking and re-voicing, keeping everything robust and uncompressed. The Boost portion of the pedal can be used to match volume when switching between guitars or to push your amp harder. The footswitch on the left takes the Team Medic to a new level with an additional 20dB of clean boost, ideal for adding gain to other pedals or quick recovery from drastic tone sculpting. Like all ThorpyFX the Team Medic is chock-full of high grade components such as Burr-Brown op-amps and WIMA caps, all placed in a heavy-duty, laser-etched enclosure.
