T-Rex Unveils 7 New Pedals

Gull Triple Voice Wah, Hobo Drive, Spindoctor-2, and four new Tonebugs: Booster, Fuzz, SenseWah, and Totenschläger

Denmark (May 19, 2011) -- T-Rex Engineering, the Danish guitar effects pedal manufacturer, introduced an array of new pedals at the 2011 Frankfurt Musikmesse show which will soon be available in North America. All of the below pedals will begin shipping to North American dealers in June or July 2011.

Gull Triple Voice Wah
The Gull pedal offers two distinct “wah” sounds (light and heavy), plus a unique dual-filter “yoy-yoy” effect. The SLOPE knob shapes the wah/yoy effect, while the BOOST function for amps up the volume of the output signal. The HOTSPOT button adjusts the onset of the effect, creating a less-sudden an more-musical wah response. Street: $249

Hobo Drive
At its core, Hobo Drive is a 2-stage preamp controlled via traditional PREAMP and MASTER volume controls. It also features a TONE control for customizing the overdrive sound. On top of the preamp core is a boost function designed for soloing, single-note lines, etc. Finally, a PRE/POST switch offers the option of boosting the signal before it hits the preamp to add even more drive. Street: $279

The SpinDoctor overdrive preamp returns in 2011 as a new and improved version of its former self. The key features are still there: four programmable channels, a full set of tone controls, and motorized knobs. The Spindoctor-2 boasts and even warmer, tube-driven overdrive tone than its predecessor, leaving behind some of the more harsh treble tones. A brand new power regulator provides more internal power, which means more headroom and greater dynamics. Not only is SpinDoctor-2 a killer distortion pedal – it’s also a complete guitar preamp. Plug it directly into a power amp, or use the speaker-simulation output to plug into a studio mixer or AD converter connected to your computer. Street: $599

New Tonebugs
T-Rex adds four stomp-boxes to this growing line of pedals all built with a simple philosophy in mind: to pair the classic T-Rex tone found in our higher-end pedals together with intuitive, uncomplicated controls, at a price that any guitarist can afford:

Tonebug Booster: Boosts your tone without losing it, and shape your tone with Scoop and Boost controls. Street: $99

Tonebug Fuzz: Designed for rich, creamy hyper-distortion. With Fuzz, Level and Tone controls. Street: $99

Tonebug SenseWah: Triggered by playing, the SenseWah creates wah effects automatically. Switch between “wah-wah” and “yoy-yoy” effects, and tweak with Sense and Range controls. Street: $149

Tonebug Totenschläger: The metal-minded Totenschläger has three controls – Level, Gain and a Graphic EQ - for what T-Rex calls, "hellish, fire-breathing distortion." Street: $99
