ThorpyFX has debuted Heavy Water, a dual boost pedal birthed from requests for The Dane’s high-headroom clean boost to be repackaged in a standalone format. Heavy Water offers this very boost alongside a grittier boost that’s coloured by the pedal’s germanium diodes.
Heavy Water’s two boosts can be deployed independently – stomp on the right footswitch for The Dane and step on the left for the dirtier boost. Both boosts can also be combined, should you need to slam the front-end of your tube amp.
The stomper sports four controls: two boost-level knobs and two “lows”. The latter two, as their names suggest, can be used to thicken the boost effect.
Retails at £189.99. More info at thorpyfx.com.
