The newest additions to the Tonebug family are scheduled to begin shipping in September.

Denmark (August 13, 2010) -- T-Rex Engineering, the Danish guitar effects pedal manufacturer, introduces the fourth and fifth members of the Tonebug family of pedals: the Tonebug Phaser and the Tonebug Chorus/Flanger. The two pedals join their existing Tonebug Overdrive, Reverb, and Distortion siblings.

Tonebug Phaser
The Tonebug Phaser features a Mode switch, and two simple controls: Rate and Depth. Choose Modern Mode for a crisp, thick-sounding phase, and Vintage Mode for that classic analog vibe. Dial in great sounding tones from a deep, slow rotation to a light, watery shimmer.

Tonebug Chorus/Flanger
The Tonebug Chorus/Flanger pedal offers a richly textured chorus sound control by two knobs: Rate and Depth.

In addition to the chorus effect, this pedal also includes a great sounding flanger mode, for that weird “whooshing” jet-plane sound.

The T-Rex Tonebug series
The Tonebug Series is a growing line of T-Rex pedals built with a simple philosophy in mind: to offer the classic T-Rex tone found in our high-end pedals with intuitive, uncomplicated controls.

T-Rex is scheduled to begin shipping the Tonebug Phaser and Chorus/Flanger in September.

MSRP of both pedals: $199.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
