If you still haven’t heard a T-Rex Mudhoney, do yourself a favour and plug one in next time you’re at the music store.
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. It’s one of first pedals we produced, and it set the standard for many T-Rex pedals to come.
2 Mudhoneys in 1
Now, we’re pleased to introduce Mudhoney II, a new generation of this classic pedal that keeps everything that was great about the original Mudhoney – and then doubles it! 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.
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.
We’re convinced that the T-Rex Mudhoney II is the best-sounding, most versatile boutique distortion pedal out there. But don’t take our word for it. Try one today at your local music store.
Your Mudhoney II has 4 controls for each channel: GAIN, LEVEL, TONE and BOOST.
The GAIN knob is the most important control on your Mudhoney II. The more you turn it up, the more overdrive gain you get. Make sure to set the GAIN differently for the 2 Mudhoney II channels, so you can switch between the channels for different levels of distortion.
Use the LEVEL knob to set the overall output volume from the pedal. At 12 o’clock your output is the same as your input volume. Turning it all the way up (clockwise) will boost your output signal by 15 dB.
The TONE knob lets you control the top end, or “edge”, of your signal without compromising sonic quality. Try setting it separately for each channel to create your own signature overdrive and distortion sounds.
Use the BOOST switch to switch between moderate and high gain for each channel separately.
