The Scarlet Tunic is the latest creation from builder and former British Army Major Adrian Thorpe.  This time he set his sights on the rare Selmer Treble and Bass 50, an amp played by Syd Barrett during the early days of Pink Floyd.  Through further experimentation, the Scarlet Tunic was made to be able to capture the tones of the Hiwatt DR103 and Vox AC30 as well.  Built like a tank, this pre-amp pedal covers a ton of British ground.  

From ThorpyFX:

This is a pedal I describe as an Analog amp emulator. The project came about initially as we were asked to create a pedal that emulated a rare amp called the Selmer Treble and Bass 50. The player in question (Lee Harris - Saucerful of Secrets) wanted a pedal to provide him with the vintage amp tones Syd Barret used in early Pink Floyd music. This was so that he could sound authentic whilst playing on the Saucerful of Secrets World Tour. In the pedal development we made sure that the Selmer was covered tonally but as always, we went further than the initial scope of design. So, as well as the Selmer Amp we also ensured that the DR103 and AC30 style tones could be captured successfully. Fitted with a high-quality transformer, the pedal reacts to your playing and distorts like a full-size amplifier.

THE SCARLET TUNIC as an Analog amp emulator can work fantastically well with your existing amp, your existing pedals and it integrates easily into your current rig. You can use it to create classic vintage amp sounds or craft your own sound. Tested worldwide during its development on the biggest of stages, you can be confident the SCARLET TUNIC will deliver.
