    Hello all,

    This is my first post on the forum. Glad to be here.

    Just wanted to start off my saying I bought my first two T-Rex pedals today, and I'm really excited about getting them. With that, I'd love to hear who on the forum has some T-Rex stuff, and what they think of theirs.

    Today I bought a Moller OD, and a Replica Delay.

    Love to hear from you guys, and it's great to be here!

    Welcome aboard, McSoapy! I've got a T-Rex Replica that I like a lot. It's not the flavor of the week, but it's a really great pedal. (Nice to see that Analog Mike thinks so too!) :D

    I have a replica as well. I'll be tarred and feathered for saying this, but I like it much better than my analog delay.

    Do you think it has analog characteristics? I tried a Ibanez AD9 and was really really disappointed with it, as it was analog, and I wasn't a big fan of it. It seemed really flat and drab.

    I really like the Alberta. This is one of the best low gain pedals I've tried. It really emulates the complex overtones you hear when an amp is pushed to the point of overdrive. I've tried many overdrive pedals that just sounded thin. This provides girth without processing the signal.

    I've got a Replica, too, and love it......seems to have all the features and delay time needed from a digital delay, but it sounds like an analog delay without the dirt, but keeping the warmth. (IMHO) :)

    Tremster-user right here! I've owned several other tremolos before. Nobel, Boss and Voodoo Lab but the T-rex is the one that got to stay. Must admit though that the new Cusack is somewhat intriguing...

    I've got the Mudhoney, Tremster and Compnova. Great pedals. Especially the Mudhoney is very very underrated I think.

    Wow,

    I got excited there for a moment when I read the topic!

    "Get it on, bang an gong..."

    Yep, Bolan had a great tone on some tracks though!

    That's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for, and why I bought the pedal in the first place. I'm really excited to get it!

    Replica
    Beta Vibe
    Alberta

    I love um. The Replica is great. Alberta is a very likeable screamer. The tone control gives the Alberta a nice range. You can get nice mid hump and coupled with my AC boost it's a beast. Beta Vibe doesn't get a lot of use but I dig the
    leslie effect.

    It has a high cut which makes the repeats warmer like an analog delay. But the repeats still sound like your notes. Analog delay to my ears distorts the repeats so they sound almost like "spaceship blips", if that makes any sense.

    Me too. Especially since I am desperately trying to cop his fuzz tone and can't find the right pedal.
