OVERVIEW

Distortion with detailed bass control.

The Vulture has a great, throaty distortion with a nice bite to it but the low end and low midrange can be shaped in many ways, thanks to the low-boost and fat-boost knobs. This allows the player to dial in almost stupid amounts of lows, but the distortion stays tight, not muddy.

T-Rex could have left it at a "bass" knob only, but the low-boost adds a lot of what we all love about 4x12 cabs. That is not necessarily what you need if you are looking for more "body" in the sound though. The fat-boost is designed to add weight and punch to the sound, giving the top strings a lot of depth and presence. The Vulture provides a great, throaty distortion with a nice bite to it but the low end and low midrange can be shaped in many ways, thanks to the low-boost and fat-boost knobs. This allows the player to dial in pronounced lows, but the distortion stays tight, not muddy.

The secret to the Vulture is to adjust the boost and tone knobs for optimal sound when the gain is adjusted, just like on an amp. The Vulture is a carrion bird, one that feasts upon the fetid remains of the dead. Own the desert with tone, body, depth and presence at any volume.

    Great pedal. I have a good selection of better quality OD / Dist pedals. This will be my go to choice for heavier crunch.

    Pretty good range Od Drive/Distortion sounds

    By Dc

    from New Jersey

    Comments about T-Rex Engineering Vulture Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal with Low and Fat Boost:

    It's a keeper. Nice gain structure. Controls really work. Quite a few sweet spots.
    Great range of distortion. I use it as an OD. Works nice with bright of dark amps. To be honest, I didn't think it was going to be as good as some of my other pedals like an OCD. But after tweaking the gain, low and fat boost, I found myself playing with it for quite some time. Great for Rock. It's well made.

      This is the sound I have been looking for. It is easy to adjust and well built. I play three different guitars at our gigs and never change the settings on this pedal. I highly recommend.

      I agree with everything everybody else said. I liked this pedal so much that I bought another for my students to use. The lil' rockers love it.
