T-Rex Vulture Distortion Pedal with Low and Fat Boost
T-Rex Vulture Distortion Pedal
T-Rex's Vulture Pedal is a classic distortion pedal with low and fat boost. It's easy to find spots in the tone with lots of bite and depth. With lots of gain, tight bottom end, and delicate tone control. Adjust the boost and tone knobs for optimal sound.
The T-Rex Vulture started its life when Michael plugged in one of the very first pedals we made. That pedal had a certain sound to it that we really liked, but it was a bit grungy in the low-end. We wanted to make a pedal with that sound, but with a tighter, less fuzzy low end and with more gain. We opened up the pedal and painstakingly measured everything in it, to find out why it sounded so good and found a couple of resistors that would be better with other values. Was it modified earlier in life or was this just a very good sounding mistake from when it was made in Lars´ basement way back in the '90s? All we know is that the basic sound was cool and we left it at that, and went on to focus on getting the low-end tight - but BIG! The fruit of our labor is a pedal that has a great, throaty distortion with a nice bite to it but the low end and low midrange can be shaped in many ways, thanks to the low- and fat-boost knobs. This allows the player to dial in almost stupid amounts of lows, but the distortion stays tight, not muddy.
