CONGRATULATIONS
on your purchase of the T-Rex ToneTrunk.
By choosing the T-Rex ToneTrunk you’ve got yourself a good solid pedal
board to keep your pedals in place whenever you use them - or don’t
use them.
You have purchased one of the three models. All three models work the
same way and they all include a slanted pedal board and velcro to cover
both board and pedals.
GET STARTED
Start by attaching four rows of velcro to the board (the “male” part)
and make sure they just meet the edge. Next, you attach two pieces of
“female” velcro at the bottom of your pedals – this way you make sure to
keep them in place. Remove any buttons to ensure optimal contact with
the board.
CONNECTING THE POWER SUPPLY
Check your effect units to make sure that the poles match those on the
power supply’s power ports (This is very important. “Minus” must be on
the centre contact). Plug your boxes into the relevant power ports, connect the power supply to your mains supply and start laying down the
grooves!
ARRANGING YOUR CHAIN OF EFFECTS
When mounting your pedal board it is important that you place your
effects correctly in order to get the best interaction and sound. When
chaining your effects we suggest that you place your units in the following order:
• Tone filters and EQs: wah and compressor effects
• Pre-amps: distortion and overdrive
• Modulation devices: vibe, chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo.
• Reverb and delays
This line-up is not definitive, just a guide line. Feel free to experiment
with setting up your own chain of effects.
When you’ve mounted the pedals, take your time to arrange the cables
and fasten them using strips.
TROUBLESHOOTING
My effects sound awful...
You’re probably drawing too much power. Check your effects for how
much power they require and disconnect accordingly.
Did you check the polarity of your effects? Hurry up and disconnect the
power, then check that the polarity is correct. Remember, minus must be
on the centre contact.
I can hear an irritating hum...
This sometimes occurs when numbers of effects are connected together
in series. Some pedals generate more background noise than others.
Try moving your power supply and placing your noisiest pedals furthest
away from it.
The power supply’s light is not on...
If you haven’t forgotten to turn on the mains supply, there’s been a
shortcircuit. Turn off the power supply immediately and check all units
thoroughly. For example, is the power supply’s mains cable connected
properly? Are all the effects’ polarities correct?
