Today I wanted to bring up the T-Rex Luxury Drive. Originally The Luxury Drive was originally designed by TC Jaurenig (who also makes the Gristle King effects). I’m not sure what the deal if he sold the rights/circuit of the pedal to T-Rex or let’s them produce it.. not sure, since the Luxury Drive appears to be available at TC’s site still.
I’m a big fan of clean boosts. I love the simple concept / circuit, and loves what it does to tube amps and pedals in front of the boost.
Here is the official description of the T-Rex Luxury Drive:
Boosts your pedals and amp for a trebly, slightly compressed tone.
The T-Rex Engineering Gristle Luxury Drive is based on simplicity, durability, and most of all tone. This pedal is designed to serve as a boost to drive your overdrive/distortion pedals and your amp harder. The T-Rex Gristle Luxury pedal’s increase in signal offers you an added edge of “treble-licious” tone with a slight bit of touch-sensitive compression that won’t fail in the low end.
I found this video by wildbabydragon where he uses it as a boost on a gain channel (actually, how I would use it as well).
