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

$249 retail

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
