T-Rex Effects Introduces the Nitros Hypergain Distortion and New ToneTrunk Pedalboards

The Nitros is one of the most tweakable dirt pedals by the Danish company.

Vejle, Denmark (December 26, 2014) -- T-Rex Effects will introduce its new Nitros Hypergain Distortion pedal at the 2015 NAMM Show.

Delivering everything from over-the-top scooped metal, rumbling classic rock, and even alternative styles, the Nitros is one of the most tweakable dirt pedals ever made by the Danish effects pedal manufacturer.

T-Rex has incorporated an active 3-band EQ with extremely broad frequency ranges to make the "color" of the distortion highly adjustable. With some moderate EQ cutting/boosting, the Nitros thrives in guitar hero land with plenty of timeless scorching dirt tones at your disposal. Turn the knobs a little further however, and you can push your tone to some EQ extremes - anything from "oops, I forgot to turn off my wah" to "dude, your amp is facing the wall." The voicing of the Nitros can be altered to taste - and even beyond - for some incredibly diverse distortion tones.


  • Mid to high gain with tightness and articulation
  • Bold and aggressive clipping circuitry
  • Active 3-band EQ for extreme shaping of the voicing
  • FET Bypass for low switching noise and buffering capabilities

Presets extend the flexibility of an already expansive and easy-to-use reverb.

Intuitive. Great range in all controls. Well-built.

Some digital artifacts at long decay times.


Walrus Audio Slötvå


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.
