T REX Moller Overdrive

So take a mild overdrive pedal and inject some steroids into it and you basically will get the T Rex Moller Overdrive by T-Rex. The control layout is straightforward and easy to dial in but there are a few neat features on this.

T REX Comp Nova

I’m often asked, “Mike, what compressor do you use?” and I often inject my sarcastic humor by lifting up my right hand to show the perspective customer my compressor. I’ve never been one to use compression. The only time I ever did was to cop that Nile Rogers/CHIC funky guitar tone. Needless to say, I don’t get called often to pull off those tones. Compression is useful for evening out the highs and lows of a sound wave, in turn squashing the peaks and valleys to produce and even volume. Compression can also be use to sweeten and/or boost a tone. Nevertheless, T-Rex produces one of the sweetest, warmest and most musical compressors on the market.

T REX Dr Swamp

I’ve always loved dirt pedals. Even though most of my gain and overdrive come courtesy of my trusty Koch Powertone and my VHT (now Fryette Amps) Pitbull, I still have a fascination with little boxes that make guitar sounds ugly. It’s really an obsession. Like most guitarist out there, I own a plethora of distortion pedals but always seek out funky old gem and the latest in gain train devices. Here we have the Dr. Swamp. Immediately, you’ll notice that there are two individual voicings on this pedal…yep, that means two distortion sounds can be accessed. The overall pedal tone is very versatile and controls are very intuitive with the simple Gain, Level and Tone knobs along with two on/off switches. Individual settings can be dialed in and remote accessed via the pedal thus turning a meager one-channel amp with a clean sound into a versatile 3 channel set up. The overdrive tone ranges from tweed like grit to a full-blown modded JCM 800 style tone. I had a blast running through some of the songs on my cover band’s (Left Of Eden) set list. The extreme settings will not get you into the Norwegian Black Metal territory but they will however get you an intense, versatile, chunky and sophisticated sounding pedal. The pedals fidelity is really amazing and doesn’t give of the cold and sterile sound that some high tech pedals do. I had a blast running through some old UFO songs with this one at a Sixes & Sevens rehearsal where I pretty much nailed the pinnacle Michael Schenker tone.

T. REX: Guitar Effects Pedals

Always in touch with hot new products, we are proud to announce that we are the first dealer in Canada to hop on board the T-Rex train. T-Rex Engineering is a Danish company that produces some of the best high end pedals out there. Their list of endorsees includes an illustrious group of pros like John Mayer, Gary Moore, Carl Verheyen, Steve Lukather, Pete Townsend, David Gilmour and Pepper Keenan (Corrosion Of Conformity, Down). I first came across them after seeing the band Down live. I was immediately hypnotized by the lushness and tape like warmth of Pepper Keenan’s delays. Upon glancing at his pedal board, a familiar logo came into view. The rest is history. I soon after got the call from our buddy Mike O’Leary, the Canadian distributor and snagged up the first shipment to cement our dealership.
