DANISH T-REX ALBERTA OVERDRIVE
It´s bluesy, it´s swampy, it´s what we know and love!
The Alberta is a low-gain overdrive, designed to add a little extra sizzle to your sound, making your notes fly off the fretboard with a bit more personality and feel. It´s a very musical and pleasing tone, that countless players have used as a “sound enhancer”, not just a great sounding overdrive.
It was actually designed for boosting the amp SRV-style (gain down, level up), so it´s lower gain and less strident than Stevie´s pedal.
“The blue one”, as they call the original, is finally available again with the same sound and looks, handmade in Denmark.
DANISH AND hand-built
This pedal is a reissue of one of the very first stompbox series made by T-Rex.
They were handmade in Vejle, Denmark using local suppliers and “local” employees such as family members and friends of T-Rex founders Lars and Sebastian. Yes, the old, sought-after Mudhoneys, Albertas and Tremsters were made in a smokey, low-key environment filled with passion and late-night soldering. We´re talking small scale, big expectations, here.
The reissue pedals use the same leaded components and parts as the old ones, but are wave soldered for higher precision and quality. The bypass circuit has been changed to a true bypass design, but other than that, it´s just like the old days. We even stuck in some resistor values that were “slightly off the mark” but contributed to the sound in a very positive way.
We are very proud to give re-birth to these three classics in “the right way” by doing the work ourselves in Vejle, Denmark. We hope they will keep the legacy of our red, blue and yellow “babies” alive while giving players a second chance for owning one of them.
Please welcome back the Alberta, Mudhoney and Tremster!
