Empowering Your Music
Gull
THE WAH-WAH THE WORLD’S
BEEN WAITING FOR
A GREAT THING JUST GOT WAY BETTER
Musicians and reviewers were astonished when
T-Rex Effects released the original SpinDoctor,
a tube-driven preamp stomp box with four programmable channels, a full set of tone controls,
motorised knobs and gorgeous vintage tone. Now,
we are pleased to introduce SpinDoctor2 – offering all the amazing features of the original, but
revamped guts that deliver a wider spectrum of
clean and dirty sounds and an even richer, more
vibrant tone.
The world’s best overdrive pedal
When plugged into your stage amp, SpinDoctor2
is nothing less than the best overdrive pedal on
the planet. You’ll broaden and deepen your amp
with four custom channels of analogue overdrive
– each with its own settings for gain, bass, mid,
treble, presence and output level. A “lead” button
is always available to take you right over the edge,
and you can bypass your SpinDoctor2 from any
channel for a clean sound straight from your
amp.
A programmable tube preamp
You can also use SpinDoctor2 as a
tube preamp, plugging it directly into
a power amp via the output jack. In the
studio, use the speaker-simulation output to plug into a studio mixer or AD
converter connected to your computer.
Special level and frequency knobs let
you set the volume and define the character
of your virtual cabinet.

Brilliant features, stunning design
SpinDoctor2 is a masterpiece of sonic art. But it’s
also a triumph of design – packing a stunning array of features into a set of controls so intuitive
and easy to use:
• 4 channels of T-Rex tone. Switching between
channels and making adjustments on the fly is
simple, fast and intuitive.
• Tone controls let you tune your tone (bass, mid,
treble and presence) for each individual channel.
• Motorised knobs move when you switch channels – like faders on a state-of-the-art studio mixing board.
• Gain gives you the entire spectrum of analogue
gain in a single knob. Turn it down low for a warm
clean sound or up to lay on the gain. If you want
even more – hit the boost button and blast off into
the stratosphere of world-class overdrive.
We are convinced that SpinDoctor2 is the best
product we’ve ever built. Take it for a spin – and
you’ll find out why it’s the one pedal you’ll never
want to play without.
Two wahs and the long-forgotten yoy
Many of the wah-wah pedals produced over the decades are very
different from each other. And then there are related effects – like
the, in our opinion, underrated yoy-yoy pedal. When we designed
Gull, we wanted to bring you the very best that history has to offer – and then some.
Gull gives you two distinct wah-wah sounds – a light wah which
is great for clean guitars and rhythm parts, a massive, smoking
wah for distorted leads – plus the unique dual-filter yoy-yoy effect.
Yoy-Yoy is basically a wah effect with an ultra-high
frequency sweep soaring overhead. It’s an incredibly rich sound.
A classic SLOPE knob lets you shape the character of your wah/
yoy sweep, and a BOOST function lets you set a higher volume for
your output signal when you kick your Gull into action.
A more musical wah
With Gull, we also wanted to address a complaint many guitarists
have with traditional wah-wah pedals: their response. Wah-wahs
often jump into action at the slightest touch, leaving little room to
work the pedal and build up slowly.
Gull addresses this with a special HOTSPOT button that gives you
the option of slowing the onset of the effect and using the whole
pedal to “wah” with. It makes Gull respond more like a musical
instrument than many legacy pedals do.
We truly believe that the T-Rex Gull is the wah-wah the world’s
been waiting for.

MUDHONEY II
DISTORTION & OVERDRIVE
HOBO DRIVE
START WITH A
2-STAGE PREAMP
2 MUDHONEYS IN 1
Now even more deliciously dirty
Dirty and sweet, this classic dual distortion pedal
has been praised for its amazing tonal range and
ability to deliver everything from a smooth dirty
edge to a harrowing wall of distorted sound.
At its core, HOBO DRIVE is a 2-stage preamp
controlled via traditional PREAMP and MASTER
volume controls. But that’s not all. A TONE control
lets you customize your overdrive sound right from
the start, shaping the timbre to your exact tastes.
2 Mudhoneys in 1
With two channels of vintage gain, you can easily
switch between a clean sound from your amp, a
nice edgy overdrive from the one Mudhoney channel and a thick warm distortion from the other channel – delivering deliciously dirty T-Rex tone all the
way.
Alter Bridge

Then add an adjustable BOOST switch
On top of the preamp core, you get a very useful
boost function for soloing, single-note lines, you
name it. This not only makes HOBO DRIVE a
more versatile pedal, it can also eliminate the need
for an external boost pedal, if you normally use an
overdrive sound for your leads.
New tone controls
Mudhoney II features the same convenient boost
function you’ll recognise from the original Mudhoney (now one switch for each channel) and even
adds a tone control for each channel – so you can
shape the timbre of your drive to create your own
signature sound.
Finally, the real sauce…
When you kick your HOBO DRIVE into boost
mode, it takes your overdrive sound to your desired
volume level. But HOBO DRIVE lets you do something else too: An ingenious PRE/POST switch
gives you the option of boosting your signal before
the preamp – adding even more drive as you raise
the stakes with extra volume.”
mudhoney
CRUNCHY, FUZZY DISTORTION
Designed for those who want an in-your-face wall
of guitar sound jumping out of the speakers.
The boost button and the tone knob enable you
to dial in every sound you like, from ultra fuzz
to smooth jazz sounds. In “OFF-mode” (with the
boost-function by-passed), the Mudhoney delivers
moderate gain and a smooth rich sound favoured by
many jazz-guitarists.
For a more hairy sound - just hit that “boost-button”
and feel the rumble from hell.

alberta II
bass juice
2 Albertas in 1
With two channels of overdrive, you can now get
the clean sound from your amp, a nice “on-theedge” overdrive from one channel and a punchy
rock sound from the other channel, or go from a
medium boost to a fat, clean-ish boost to push the
front end of your amp.
Rediscover the joys of adding juice to your sound.
This beauty offers organic distortion specially designed for bass. In “normal” mode (boost function
off), it delivers awesome sustain with rich creamy
overtones and big bottom. Engage the boost function, and you are in fuzztone heaven! The mix knob
lets you blend just the right amount of distortion
with your original clean tone.
DOUBLE UP
ON A CLASSIC!
Need a low-end boost for those “stratty” moments?
Now you can flip a switch for an even thicker tone
on either channel of the Alberta II, expanding the
tonal range and usage further than was possible before. We´ve also given channel 2 a slightly more
open and punchy sound, for a little more pick attack
and push, but with the same voice of channel 1.
MEAN MACHINE
DOUBLE DISTORTION
BUILT TO MELT METAL
The T-Rex Mean Machine is a double distortion
pedal that takes the spirit of early amplifier hotrodding and then multiplies it by as much as you
want. You’ve got two channels, each with its own
LEVEL, DRIVE and TONE controls, and that’s
it. Like a screaming vintage hot rod that’s pared
down to the bare essentials.
The green wording does not stand for “environmentally friendly”
The word “mean” might appear in green on the
top of your Mean Machine, but watch out – this
pedal is red hot. There’s no easing up from clean
to crunch to distort. Hit the ON switch even with
drive at zero, and you’ll burn rubber. Turn up the
gain and you’ll smoke every other player in town,
with a gorgeous tight distortion and the most musical feedback you’ve ever heard.

MØLLER 2
CHOOSE YOUR FLAVOUR
MØLLER is a classic overdrive pedal that provides
a wealth of dynamic overdriven tones with superb
tonal control, as well as separate transparent 0-20
db adjustable and switchable clean boost, and a
unique overdrive/clean mix option.
The mix knob lets you dial in the perfect balance
between distorted and non-distorted signal.
Rolled all the way up and with distortion maxed
too, the pedal sounds just like an old tube amp on
full volume. Roll the mix knob back a bit, and your
clean signal starts to get through, meaning that if
you pick lightly, or roll back the volume on your
guitar, you get a stunning clean/softly clipping
sound that retains all the feel and dynamics of your
original tone, only bigger, louder and richer.
The boost function lets you dial in a solo level,
whether the overdrive circuit is activated or not.

TREMSTER
TAPSTER
If you are in need of a great classic tremolo/vibrato effect with an excellent sound and with a
wider range of controls for very slow and exceptionally deep sounds, you want to try the Tremster.
The Tremster has all the controls you would expect
with depth, volume and speed dials as well as a
MODE-button switching between tremolo/vibratoeffect and a foot switch to toggle the effect on or off.
Last but not least the Tremster has a flashing LED
light that will help to tailor the speed of the effect
and get it in time with your tune.
Just imagine if T-Rex took all the gorgeous vintage
tone and uncluttered functionality of the Tremster
tremolo pedal… and then added the Tap Tempo
function that has made the T-Rex Replica delay a
certified platinum classic? It would give you all the
swampy pulsation you love about the tremolo, plus
let you change the tempo of your tremolo pulse dynamically, as you play.
Well, you don’t have to imagine it, because it’s here
– Tapster tremolo. Like a great organist adjusts the
rotation speed of his Leslie speaker, you can now
shift from a dizzying tremolo shimmer to a funky
slow sweep – all while keeping in sync with the
beat. Just tap your foot along. Included is also a
useful Subdivision switch that lets you choose how
your tremolo pulsates to the beat – in quarter notes,
eighth notes, or eighth note triplets.

Sweeper 2
TWISTER 2
A premium-quality chorus effect, and although
the label says “BASS CHORUS” it is custom engineered to sound equally fantastic on both bass
AND guitar. This means that whether you play bass
or guitar, and no matter what rate or depth you set,
you’ll get a phenomenalsounding chorus effect – in
stereo.
The Sweeper 2 isn’t especially complicated, or
packed with all sorts of extra features. It’s a simple,
intuitively designed pedal that does just one job –
producing an exquisite chorus effect for your bass
and guitar.
The Twister 2 has been updated with new algorithms
and is now delivering that warm vintage-sounding
chorus people have been asking for.

TAP TREMOLO
STEREO CHORUS
& FLANGE
Did you say chorus and flanger?
We sure did. Although they sound quite different,
these two classic effects are so closely related that a
single pedal can produce them both. We could have
taken the usual path and built two separate units,
but we wanted to give you both great effects in a
single box. While the chorus adds sparkle and shine
to your sound, the flanger puts a funky twist on
both chords and single-note lines. Give it a try, and
discover how it’s the wild and weird effect you’ve
been looking for.

TREMONTI PHASER
CLASSIC PHASE SHIFTER
Signature Sound
To create the T-Rex phase-shifter, we teamed up with one of
our time’s masters: Alter Bridge and former Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti. A devoted T-Rex user, Mark was looking for the perfect phaser to add to his onstage arsenal, and
we’ve come up with a pedal he’s proud to endorse. Tremonti
sets a new standard for gorgeous phased sound.

Perfect Control
Tremonti Phaser delivers everything you expect in a phaser
and then some. The Stage switch lets you choose between
a raw, vintagesounding effect and a richer, more modern
swirl. And the ingenious Bite knob adds a sexy overdrive
edge to any setting. Fast or slow, deep or shallow, vintage or
modern, Tremonti Phaser delivers extraordinary-sounding
phased modulation that will take your playing to another
world.
OCTAVIUS
TRIPLE YOUR IMPACT
The T-Rex Octavius is our take on this unusual and powerful
effect. A tri-tone generator with a perfect set of controls and
a brilliant BOOST function, Octavius gives you everything
you could want in octave generation – plus incredible T-Rex
tone
Rise above, Go below…
Octavius lets you get that classic octave-down effect you’ll
recognise from Hendrix’ “Machine Gun” and other recordings. But it also lets you add in a third high octave so you
can hit your audiences with a sonic wall of three-octave lead
lines.
You can mix the octaves however you want to create your
own signature sound. And the pedal features a controllable
boost button to help you lift your solos up above the mix.

replica
DUCK TAIL
With its perfect mix of controls, its ingenious tap
control feature and its astonishingly warm tone, the
Replica delivers everything the most demanding
guitarists could want in a delay – Which is probably
why this pedal has become such a phenomenon.
Ducking – or the automatic reduction of your delayed signal when your clean signal rises above a
certain level – is a complex effect that can really
give your musical expression a lift. In quiet passages, the delay supports the special atmosphere
you want to create. As you start to play harder, the
delay recedes to let the notes you’re playing come
through pure and uncluttered. It is a sophisticated
effect, and now it’s yours with the T-Rex Duck Tail
Delay.
In addition to the ducking mode, the Duck Tail Delay gives you 2 non-ducking modes – Classic and
Tape. Please do yourself a favour and check out the
sound of our Tape delay mode. We might be partial,
but we have not yet heard a more realistic reproduction of vintage tape loop technology in a modern
guitar effect pedal.
CLASSIC DELAY
THE WORLD’S BEST DELAY
Warm, analogue tone
Like everything T-Rex makes, the Replica is a musician’s pedal, built by and for musicians with just
one thing in mind: incredible tone. The first time
you hear the Replica, you won’t believe your ears.
It delivers a tubey warmth that brings out the best
in your natural tone, without taking the upper hand
by adding too much colour.
reptile 2
A REPTILE EVOLVES
T-Rex is pleased to bring you Reptile 2 – the next
step in the evolution of this sonic savage for guitar
and bass. With the Reptile 2, we’ve brought our renowned Tap Tempo function to the Replica’s “baby
brother”. Tap Tempo gives you ultimate control of
your delay on stage, by letting you match the speed
of your delay effect to the tempo of your music –
without ever missing a beat.

Enhanced flutter section
Besides Tap Tempo, Reptile 2 also features an enhanced Flutter section, with a new Tone control.
Flutter introduces a touch of random-sounding
“warble” to your delay for that great retro tapeeffect sound. The Tone control lets you take the top
end off your delayed repeats for an even more authentic vintage tone. In the Reptile 2, you’ll find a
gorgeous-sounding delay that easily beats the competition and comes closer than ever to offering the
total Replica control – but at a price you can afford
even if you’re not (yet…) a rock star.

room-mate
MORE ROOM,
A BETTER MATE
Generation 2 of tubey reverb based on customer feedback
We started by adding a decay knob – so you can adjust
the length of your reverb trail in all four modes. Then, we
added a hi-cut knob for that great vintage vibe, and a gain
knob – which makes it possible to use your Room-Mate in
an effects loop without overloading the pedal’s input stage.
The new Room-Mate offers the same phenomenal-sounding
Room , Hall and LFO modes you already know. But we’ve
added a completely revamped Spring mode that will simply
blow your mind. When the decay is set low in Spring mode,
Room-Mate emulates a short-spring reverb. Turn the decay
up, and you get a killer long-spring reverb you just won´t
hear anywhere else.

Presenting the newest addition to our successful line of reverb pedals – the Room-Mate Junior – all the best from the

Our new Room-Mate Junior offers 4 state-of-the-art sound

options are endless. Use the decay knob to adjust the length

COMP-NOVA
COMPRESSION DONE RIGHT
With its perfectly simple set of controls and pure, naturally

right. It delivers a subtle, musical compression – no matter
whether you are using it to even out funky single-note lines,
add sustain to searing leads, or take the edge off an acoustic
rhythm part. Comp-Nova delivers a warm, natural tone that
brings out the original richness of your instrument and the
way you play it.
Never tried a compressor?
If you’ve never used a compressor before, the effect can

In the beginning, there was overdrive…
Not distortion. Certainly not fuzz. But overdrive – that almost miraculously warm, saturated sound of one vintage tube amp pushing
the next one just a little too hard. It’s what
the blues are made of.
And it’s what created rock and roll. In fact,
it’s the First Foundation of just about every
style of guitar playing out there. And now
it’s yours, with the ToneBug Overdrive.
Why just play, when you can breathe fire?
Tonebug Totenschläger is a little black box
of fire-breathing distortion you’ll never want
to live without, once you’ve heard what it
can do.
With just three controls – Level, Gain and
Graphic EQ – Totenschläger is easy to master and adjust on stage. But what this pedal
is all about is the positively hellish sound of
the distortion it serves up.
Let there be distortion…
When guitarists in the early ’60s started
experimenting with distortion, it took rock
music to a whole new level. The earliest attempts were crude, with some guitarists even
slitting their amp speakers to get a “fuzzy”
sound. But amplifier makers eventually figured out how to “overdrive” a main amp
with a hot signal from a preamp to bring true
distortion to the world of rock.
ToneBug Overdrive is a masterpiece of simplicity, offering just the controls you need
to give your sound the unmistakable warm
edge that’s the hallmark of every guitarist
that’s ever meant anything to rock and roll.
You get a Gain control for setting the amount
of overdrive, a Tone control for tuning the
timbre of your gain, and Level for making
sure your overall volume is right. It’s neither
more nor less than everything you need.
Shape your flame
Totenschläger comes with a 3-band graphic
equalizer that lets you shape your distortion
and create your own signature tone that’ll
set you apart from other shredders.
Boost the bass for glowing red embers, kick
up the mids for unearthly blue tones, or unleash the highs for a searing white heat that
will burn through the mix and simply stun
your audience.
As easy as it gets!
Tonebug Distortion is a phenomenal-sounding pedal that delivers gobs of rich, tubeysounding distortion you’ll recognise instantly as a fundamental ingredient of classic
guitar rock. And it couldn’t be easier to use.
A simple Gain knob lets you choose how
dirty you want to get, while a Tone knob lets
you tune the timbre of your distortion - from
a muted bluesy crunch to a searing wail
that’ll slice through anything in its way.
It’s alive!
A stunning new reverb pedal built with one
goal in mind: to bring dry, flat-sounding,
bedroom-bound guitar playing to life. Reverb simulates real-life performance environments – from huge echoey concert halls
and modern-sounding live stages, to raunchy clubs and basement dives. But no matter
what setting you choose, loads of incredible
T-Rex tone will keep you sounding like the
best of them.
Modern or spring
What makes Reverb so versatile is its ingenious dual-mode feature. The mode switch
lets you go from Modern, for more contemporary reverb sounds, to Spring – for a
world of vintage reverb that sounds almost
too authentic to be true. It’s really like having two separate pedals in one. Try ToneBug
Reverb today, and discover why it’s the one
pedal you’ll never want to live without.
TECH GEEKS AND MUSIC FREAKS
T-Rex Engineering is a company that simply had to be born. Founders Lars Dahl and Sebastian Jensen were
(and still are) both tech geeks and music freaks – and they started the company in 1996 so they could build the
best guitar MIDI gear on the planet. They achieved their goal quickly, producing the legendary Mac1 MIDI
controller and BigFoot MIDI board. But change was in the air, and T-Rex was set to lead the way.
A new era for the electric guitar
By the late 90s, guitarists who had thrown away their shoulder pads at the start of the decade were now
ditching complicated amp-and-effects racks – and replacing them with vintage-sounding combo amps and a
few simple stomp boxes. The problem was that late-90s pedals didn’t live up to the standards set by a new
generation of tube amplifiers. At least not until T-Rex Engineering delivered its first pedals.

Pedals as precision instruments
From the moment T-Rex started making guitar pedals, the company knew where it was headed. T-Rex wanted
to make simple pedals that each did one thing superbly. Like fine musical instruments, T-Rex pedals used
whatever combination of technologies was needed, offered a brilliantly simple user interface, and delivered
astonishing sound however they were used. The first series of pedals culminated in what is arguably the best
guitar delay ever produced: the T-Rex Replica.
Commercial success and sharp growth
By 2002, T-Rex was confident that it had a formula for success with guitarists around the globe – but the
company was virtually unknown outside Denmark.T-Rex began a new era pushing into foreign markets. A
debut appearance at the Frankfurt Musikmesse quickly led to distribution deals throughout Europe, Japan
and USA. Today, T-Rex pedals are sold in some 28 countries around the world.
A passion for superior tone
T-Rex has come a long way since 1996, but the company is still driven by its original spark – a passionate
belief that the right technology can do great things for how music sounds. Today, the “right technology” is an
ideal balance of analogue warmth and digital precision – engineered from the ground up to serve the practical
needs of working musicians. T-Rex Engineering is convinced that this formula for success will continue to
help deliver superior tone on stages and in studios around the world.
