GIVE AWAY CLOSED
Hot damn.. this is going to be sweet! It’s been a little while since I did a give away, and now, my friends, it’s time! This give away is for the T-Rex Alberta II Dual Overdrive! Along with that, there will be additional goodies described further in this post. The great group of folks at Musiquip and T-Rex were again super kind to offer another great pedal to give away to a lucky EffectsBay reader! As you already know (and if you don’t.. please check them out) T-Rex Effects makes some amazing stomp boxes and they’re always crafting new concepts. My first T-Rex pedal was the Replica, and that pedal is absolutely amazing… and they keep bringing it!
Since the introduction of the Alberta overdrive, guitarists have embraced the tonal qualities and ease of use of the pedal. So much, that quite a few are using two Albertas to get their fix on stage and in the studio, using one for creamy rhythm sounds and the other for a cutting solo sound.
T-Rex have been asked to come up with a pedal that does this and more, but stays true to the sound, usability and size of the old girl.
On popular demand from guitarists around the world, we give you the Alberta II!
The classic overdrive sound has doubled in quantity, but the sonic footprint and physical size is the same, giving the user a three step rocket of creamy, responsive overdrive without sacrificing pedalboard real estate.
2 ALBERTAS IN 1
With two channels of overdrive, you can now get the clean sound from your amp, a nice “on-the-edge” overdrive from one channel and a punchy rock sound from the other channel, or go from a medium boost to a fat, clean-ish boost to push the front end of your amp.
NEW FAT SWITCHES AND CH. 2 TWEAKS
Need a low-end boost for those “stratty” moments?
Now you can flip a switch for an even thicker tone on either channel of the Alberta II, expanding the tonal range and usage further than was possible before. We´ve also given channel 2 a slightly more open and punchy sound, for a little more pick attack and push, but with the same voice of channel 1.
Just like its little sister, the Alberta II can serve up more than a nice Blues on the Rocks, so don´t judge this book by its cover. Thanks to the added features, there´s a wide range of sounds hidden inside, that will get the job done for players in all music genres.
The T-Rex Alberta II Dual Overdrive sells for $279, so this give away is awesome already, but wait – there’s more! One of our new sponsors is a company called Option Knob, Inc. Option Knob makes a great little invention that some you shoegazers are going to love for sure! They provide a handy (actually foot) way for you to change pedal knobs on the fly. Some tweakers out there use their feet to twist knobs. That is not easy and cumbersome. Option knob provides an incredibly easy way to add their product to pedals which make it easy to tweek. For more information about their product, please check out Option Knobs website. They were kind enough to send me a small pile to check out and to give away, so for this give away, I’ll be giving away 2 knobs (a single Classic Gloknob and a Boutique Gloknob). Classic/Boutique indicates what type of pot shaft these will work with. Value of these.. $44!
Oh.. and I’m not done yet. My other biz, Rattlesnake Cable Company will offer a ‘bonus’ prize.
