Today, I found a good deal on the T-Rex Dr. Swamp Double Distortion pedal at Musician’s Friend. The Dr. Swamp Double Distortion is a dual distortion (A and B). This is a great way to have a couple of flavors of distortion at your feet. This pedal lists at $369.00, and is usually available for $279.99, but is currently on sale for $181.43 at Musician’s Friend. That is 50% off of list price!
Here is the official description of the T-Rex Dr. Swamp Double Distortion:
With two Dr Swamps in a single pedal, you can toggle between your favorite Dr Swamp settings to deliver two brands of sweet T-Rex distortion without tweaking any knobs.
The GAIN A knob controls the amount of distortion, when using switch A.
The GAIN B knob controls the amount of distortion, when using switch B.
The TONE knob affects the top end (edge) of your signal without compromising sonic quality, allowing you to dial in the perfect tonal flavor for you taste.
The LEVEL knob sets the overall volume. In mid-position (twelve oâ€™clock) the volume level is 1:1. When turned full over (clockwise) the input signal is boosted 15dB.
INDICATORS: The tone regulators have built in lights. They show which channel is active, A or B. To turn off the pedal, you just hit the channel that lights and the pedal is bypassed. To turn it on, just hit the channel you need to be active.
Gain1 setting gives you that magnificent Mudhoney fuzz while the Gain2 setting is more like a classic British stack with tight low end response. Volume control is unity gain in the 12 o’clock position and provides up to 15dB of boost. Great for solos with enough gain to get that comfort zone with clarity. Twin distortion Start out with a great chunky rhythm sound â€“ warm and bassy, but with a nice crisp edge. Then, when itâ€™s solo time, kick your Dr Swamp in to high gear to deliver a gorgeous, searing lead sound thatâ€™ll take your playing to new heights.
If you like a cleaner rhythm sound, then reserve the two channels of your Dr Swamp for two different lead settings â€“ a more restrained classic blues sound, for example, and a High Voltage rock-and-roll scream. No matter how you choose to set it up, the new Dr Swamp twin distortion will always give you more.
