T-Rex introduces two new additions to the Tonebug Pedal Line
T-Rex Engineering has introduced the fourth and fifth members of its incredibly popular Tonebug family of pedals: the Tonebug Phaser and the Tonebug Chorus/Flanger.
The Tonebug Phaser
Where overdrive and distortion pedals give you that great dirty edge, and reverb and delay pedals create space and time effects, a phase shifter adds a dynamic undulating dimension to your sound. Phasers have been around since the late 60s and are instantly recognisable as a signature part of many great guitarists’ sound, including Brian May and Eddie Van Halen.
The T-Rex Phaser gives you everything you need for a gorgeous phased sound using just two simple controls: RATE and DEPTH. And it sounds great no matter which settings you dial in – from a deep, slow rotation to a light, “watery” shimmer.
The Tonebug Chorus/Flanger
Like the drum machine, polyphonic synthesizers, crazy hair and shoulder pads, the chorus effect is a huge part of what made 80s music even possible. Today, the complex, multi-layered shimmer it gives the electric or acoustic guitar has become a must-have part of any guitarist’s sonic arsenal.
With the T-Rex Chorus + flanger, you get a beautiful, richly textured chorus sound that will add a whole new dimension to your playing – all via two perfectly simple controls: RATE and DEPTH.
T-Rex is scheduled to begin shipping the Tonebug Phaser and Chorus/Flanger in September 2010. MSRP of both pedals: $199.

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
