The Guitar Pedal Mojo You Need

Pigtronix Custom Shop's FAT Philosopher gives your guitar instant attitude. Clean sustain and overdrive are mother's milk to your sound, and the FAT Philosopher gives you the best of both in one convenient pedal that delivers the essence of two must-have Pigtronix pedals, FAT Drive and Philosopher's Rock. The FAT Philosopher - a Sweetwater exclusive - gives you infinite clean sustain without noise, tube-emulated analog overdrive, and everything in between. There's a switch for adding harmonic Germanium distortion, a blend control for parallel compression, and an FX loop insert. Nail any classic electric guitar style, with the Pigtronix FAT Philosopher.

Sweetwater Pigtronix Fat Philosopher Overdrive and Compressor Pedal at a Glance:
  • Two effects: use them individually or stack 'em
  • Infinite clean sustain, plus tube-emulated analog overdrive
  • Epic overdrive, from dynamic breakup to rich, dripping saturation
Two effects: use them individually or stack 'em

You can deploy the Pigtronix FAT Philosopher's two effects individually or together to produce everything from studio-grade parallel compression juiced with amp-like overdrive, to modern liquid high-gain lead tones that sustain for weeks. Imagine being able to conjure all this, independent of your volume! Want to further augment your tone? The FAT Philosopher also offers an effects loop, so the sky's really the limit, in terms of where you can take your guitar sound.

Infinite clean sustain, plus tube-emulated analog overdrive

Inside the Pigtronix FAT Philosopher is a modified Philosopher's Rock with an added parallel blend control, for premium-quality compression, sustain, and distortion, with an option for parallel compression. Flick the little chrome "Grit" switch and you get an additional smorgasbord of yummy overdrive. Unless you're amp is of a particularly high-gain design, you know you need a little help to send your tone over the top. The Philosopher's Rock circuitry in the FAT Philosopher is just what you need.

Epic overdrive, from dynamic breakup to rich, dripping saturation

When it comes to tone, Pigtronix FAT Drive circuitry leaves typical overdrive pedals in the dust! It uses a series of cascading gain stages to create a smooth, natural-sounding overdrive that covers tones ranging from dynamic breakup to rich, dripping saturation. The "More" switch reconfigures the gein structure to significantly increase the amount of analog drive at your fingertips. And the best part is that the FAT Drive won't alter your playing dynamics or lose the vital character of your axe.
