Like their countrymen at TC Electronic, the engineer at Denmark's T-Rex's are dedicated to improving guitar tones across the globe. Founded in 1996, they developed a range of stompboxes that cram T-Rex’s decades of tonal know-how into compact MXR-sized enclosures, with the company’s FET buffered bypass switching for pop-free operation. Players like David Gilmour, John Mayer, Mark Tremonti, and Steve Morse are fans.
The T-Rex Diva Drive overdrive pedal delivers tube-screaming overdrive effects that won't dramatically alter your core guitar tone. There are three low-end boost options to tailor the Diva Drive for any of your guitars, whether equipped with humbuckers or single-coil pickups.
The original price was the only negative we could find with the Diva Drive. But at 50% off at Sweetwater (opens in new tab), it's a deal to make all other overdrives extinct.
T-Rex Diva Drive Overdrive: Was $129.00, now $63.99 (opens in new tab)
One of the best and most versatile TS-style overdrives we’ve heard in ages. As well as packing the legendary JRC4558 op-amp – as found in vintage TS pedals – for juicy, mid-boosted gain, the Diva Drive boasts a mix control for blending the overdriven signal with your clean tone, while a three-way low-end boost control tailors the bass response to your guitar. The mix is handy for retaining clarity with extended chords, while the low-end switch is an easy win for filling in the gaps in your sound. It was expensive, but now?
