We are super pleased to announce our latest charity competition. We have teamed up with the man him self - Danish Pete - to offer you this unique chance to get a one on one online video lesson, and also a signed version of his incredibly popular signature Thorpy 'The Dane' pedal. You cannot get prizes like this on any other guitar competition site!
"I love Thorpy pedals! They look awesome and they sound amazing. I wanted to create something that would cover all the gain that tones I use, from clean tones with massive headroom to awesome bluesy lead sounds. After playing the Gunshot and the Peacekeeper I asked Thorpy if he could come up with something that would be able to do what I wanted and he said yes.... Enter “The Dane” Drive and boost. It’s not high gain. It’s a clean, expressive and dynamic overdrive. The boost has got a “Low” knob which will make your singlecoils sound super fat which I love. We also made it smaller, so now it has the same footprint as most two button pedals. Easy to get on your pedalboard.
This pedal was designed from the ground up by Thorpy FX after being approached by Pete. The Dane doesn't have quite as much gain as the Gunshot but has been made to allow the nuances of your guitar playing to come through the amp. It's incredibly expressive and importantly, easy-to-use.
It's one of those pedals that you can just plug in and easily get a great sound. The boost and the overdrive channel can both be used on their own to great effect, but the pedal really shines when you drive the Overdrive Channel with the Boost channel for bluesy tones with plenty of sustain.
Supporting The Silverlining Brain Injury charity was a quick and easy decision to make. Drew's sister was unfortunately involved in a car accident over 20 years ago which left her with life-changing brain injuries. The Silverlining Charity has provided an incredible level of support and has made an immeasurable difference to her life.
From their website:
"The Silverlining Charity is a group of like-minded people who aim to improve the quality of life of all those affected by brain injury. Our work engages brain injured people with the wider community in such a way which invigorates, motivates and rehabilitates to discover a sense of purpose, social structure and added meaning to their lives."
We are extremely proud to support this wonderful charity, who work hard to aid young people who are living with cancer.
From their website:
"Teenage Cancer Trust offers unique care and support, designed for and with young people. We fund specialised nurses, youth workers and hospital units in the NHS, so young people have dedicated staff and facilities to support them throughout treatment.
We run events for young people with cancer to help them regain independence and meet other young people going through something similar.
We also provide easy-to-understand information about every aspect of living with cancer as a young person."
