The new ToneBug Distortion from T-Rex Effects

9 February 2010 — When guitarists in the early ’60s started experimenting with distortion, it took rock music to a whole new level. The earliest attempts were crude, with some guitarists even slitting their amp speakers to get a “fuzzy” sound. But amplifier makers eventually figured out how to “overdrive” a main amp with a hot signal from a preamp to bring true distortion to the world of rock.

Simply classic

Tonebug Distortion is a phenomenal-sounding pedal that delivers gobs of rich, tubey-sounding distortion you’ll recognise instantly as a fundamental ingredient of classic guitar rock. And it couldn’t be easier to use. A simple Gain knob lets you choose how dirty you want to get, while a Tone knob lets you tune the timbre of your distortion – from a muted bluesy crunch to a searing wail that’ll slice through anything in its way.

T-Rex tone

Like our Tonebug Reverb and Overdrive pedals, Tonebug Distortion delivers the same legendary T-Rex tone that’s made our top-end products a fixture on the pedal boards of guitar greats around the world (see our website for recent T-Rex sightings). That, combined with cool retro design and rugged construction, makes Tonebug Distortion a pedal you just won’t want to play without.
