The FX Pedals Range

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.

 

Fret-King Walter Trout Benefit Guitar

A Fret-King Danny Bryant signature model guitar, signed by many great guitar players has raised £1,300 in a benefit raffle to help Walter Trout in his yearlong and successful recovery from a recent Liver Transplant.
 
Through a 25 year long solo career Walter has sought to merge the essence of the blues with relevance for the times we live in. Before his solo career, he played lead guitar for John Mayall, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, and many others.
 
Donated by JHS & Co. Ltd, the Fret-King Black Label Danny Bryant signature model was selected as Danny is actually standing in for Walter in his 'Walter Trout Band' currently touring the USA and Canada.
 
Danny and his wife Kirby also took the guitar to the recent O2 benefit gig to be signed by the artists appearing before going to Glasgow and lastly to the ‘True Blues Club’.
 
The raffle, organised by Walter’s friend Brian Filson took place at ‘True Blues Club’ of Newton-le-willows where Graham Woodhouse and Steve O’Donnell put on an a 'Walter Trout Benefit Show’ who’s fund raising efforts on the evening have made such a difference.
 
When Walter heard the news he asked us to send the following message "I am so moved and thankful for the raffle of this beautiful guitar to benefit my medical fund. Thank you to all the people who participated in the drawing, to those who signed it, to JHS & Co. Ltd. for donating the guitar, and to Danny and Kirby for setting it up."
 
The highly delighted winner, Jimmy Nicoll from London, was presented with the guitar in the Fret-King Lounge at Ivor Mairants Musicentre in London. Jimmy said “I'm really chuffed to win this guitar! It looks really cool and I’d also like to wish Walter Trout all the best and a speedy recovery."
 
Besides Trev Wilkinson, the creator of Fret-King, the guitar was signed by: Jon Trout (Walter’s son), Danny Bryant, Elliot Randall, John Verity, Gordon Giltrap, Graham Oliver, Matt Smith, Bernie Marsden, Roger Chapman, Mud Morganfield, Otis Grand, Alan Glen, Del Broham, Andrew Elt, Mitch Laddie, Laurence Jones, Ian Parker, Marcus Malone, Stephan Dale Petit, Paul Cox, John O’Leary, Matt Bullard, Tim Pen, Karl Randall, Alan Thomson, Jim Keilt, Fraser Speirs, Mike Hellier, Eric Razoni, Charlotte Marshall, John Lindsey, Ronnie Boysen, West Weston, Calum Ingram, Kenny Robertson, Al Fleming, Tim Clarke and Dave Sutton.
