FX Pedals Trev Wilkinson is a legend in the guitar world for his innovative and faultless guitar hardware and pickups, which deliver stellar tonality. His progressive approach to building guitars, and his unerring ability to think outside of every design box, is now presented in Fret-King FX pedals – his first foray into the world of stompboxes. With the emphasis set firmly on tone, Trev has instilled his true boutique ethos into these pedals. Each effect has been comprehensively researched and benchmarked against an enviable collection of highly collectible original vintage pedals and devices.

Meticulously and authentically voiced, Fret-King FX Pedals deliver tones you’ll recognise straight out of the box. Choose the pedals you want, plug in, flick the switch, and experience the way your music was always meant to sound. Add to this the usual Fret-King standards – rugged, durable die-cast aluminium casing, true bypass technology, classy design, and dual paired inputs where necessary – and you have pedals that will take your playing to new levels, define your sound, and fill stadiums.

Fret-King pedals – treat your tone.

Clean Boost

FKCB

For the ultimate volume gain. The Fret-King Clean Booster is so simple, so self-explanatory – and so effective. You're approaching that moment in the song where you need to go one step louder, one step bigger, but you need your signal to stay clean. This is where the Clean Booster comes in. Dial in up to 20dB of extra power for the parts that really matter, and play them as clean as a whistle. The Clean Booster will not colour your sound in any way, and it certainly won't distort your tone or overload your amp. In short, it's just what you need if you want to keep it clean – and loud.

Line Doctor Keeps tone 100% healthy no matter how hard you’re pushing.

If you're playing big stages where you need long guitar leads, or if you're using true bypass effects pedals, you need to pay a visit to the Fret-King Line Doctor. Basically, the more stuff that gets between your guitar and your amp, the more your tone – and volume – will suffer, and we can't have that. The Line Doctor is a simple yet ingenious buffer circuit that, when activated, will gently boost your flagging signal, replacing anything that has been lost somewhere along the way. That means you're free to use as many true bypass stompboxes as you like, and your lead can be 20ft long – or 200ft! The Fret-King Line Doctor doesn't discriminate, and will bring your tone back to full health whatever the conditions.

Power Boost When you need to ‘turn it up to 11’. A real revelation when you need to 'turn it up to 11', the Fret-King Power Boost gives you up to 20dB of boost to your signal, and it'll also break things up ever so slightly, giving you that sweet tone of a tube amp just starting to let rip! Ideal as a boost for huge, crunchy rhythm sounds, or as the secret ingredient in a stadium-filling solo, the Power Boost sounds great with a clean amp, or over the top of an overdrive pedal. Just use the simple level control to choose how much of a boost you need, and step on it! Instant power...

Ever since the swinging 60s, the wah pedal has helped guitarists own stages – and crowds – with its unique ability to mimic the human voice, its piercing tonal sweep, and its unmistakeable 'wacka-wacka' sounds. With the Fret-King Wah, Trev Wilkinson has gone back in time, found that original, pure wah tone, and brought it kicking and screaming into the 21st century!

Classic Wah The original, pure wah tone.

One of the keys to an authentic wah sound and response is using the right style of inductor. Naturally, Trev has made sure to use a custom designed, classic-style 'halo' inductor on the Fret-King wahs, so you can be sure you'll get all the vintage voicings you need in your playing. The Fret-King wah features a uniquely versatile tonal sweep – from crystal clear bass through to crisp, sweet trebles, and anywhere in between. Jimmy, Steve or Shaft, the Fret-King classic wah is your best friend.
