The Reptile and Twister get updates with new features, while the Tonebug line gets a Sustainer.

Denmark (December 31, 2010) – T-Rex Engineering, the Danish guitar effects pedal manufacturer, will present the newest members of its growing line of boutique effects pedals at the 2011 NAMM Show. The new pedals include: Reptile 2, Twister 2, and Tonebug Sustainer.

Reptile 2
Originally conceived to offer the killer delay tone and certain controls found on its “big brother” Replica pedal at a more affordable price, the Reptile gets a facelift for 2011. It now features a convenient Tap Tempo function, allowing the user to quickly and easily get in sync in a live setting. The Reptile 2 also features and enhanced set of Flutter controls, providing great retro-sounding, tape-delay “warble.” The Reptile 2 retails at $369 and is shipping now.









Twister 2
Another classic T-Rex pedal updated for 2011, T-Rex gave the Twister a face-lift based on user feedback, and it has been completely updated with new hardware and software. The Light/Heavy switch has been removed and the Twister 2 covers a wider tonal range than the original Twister. The new software update does the trick – by adjusting Depth, Tone and Rate, you can make Twister II deliver both old-fashioned vintage sound as well as a more modern chorus sound. The Twister 2 retails at $369 and will be shipping in Spring 2011.







Tonebug Sustainer
The Tonebug Sustainer joins this growing line of T-Rex pedals built with a simple philosophy in mind: to offer the classic T-Rex tone found in our higher-end pedals, with intuitive, uncomplicated controls, at a price that any guitarist can afford. The Tonebug Sustainer first compresses the signal, and then applies gain to keep your tone playing. The result is gorgeous, natural-sounding sustain for long-lasting power chords. Your tone is preserved, with no artificial coloring. Features Compression, Sustain, and Attack controls. The Tonebug Sustainer retails at $129 and will be shipping in Spring 2011.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
