Comments about T-Rex Engineering Gristle Luxury Drive Guitar Effects Pedal:

The Luxury Drive is a pedal designed by T. Jauernig, not T-Rex. It bears T-Rex name because of a business partnership. None of that really matters, I love both company's products.

The Luxury Drive can be an "on all the time" tone and response enhancement. It makes the front end of the amp more "alive". It sweetens, adds a touch of treble, in a good way, and creates a more dynamic relationship between your fingers and the front end of the amp.

I've owned, and still own, way too many great quality drive pedals. A similar pedal that I own is the Lovepedal COT 50, which has been in the "boutique tone hall of fame" for many years. The Luxury Drive, from stem to stern, is very close to the COT 50, not better, not worse. In my mind, that's bigtime praise for the Luxury Drive.

It brings out certain tonalities, makes everything fatter and clearer. It stacks EXTREMELY well with other drives, making the impact of those drive pedals more noticeable, more versatile. The other drive pedal's controls make more of a difference in terms of subtle adjustments.

In short, this is a great great boutique level enhancement that will work best with anyone who is trying to create sweet tone, add gain with quality harmonic content, increase sustain, and play a little louder with a more pleasing voice than just being 'plain loud'. Repeating what I stated earlier, it increases touch dynamics in the best possible way.

Do not purchase this pedal thinking that it's gonna be a killer distortion pedal, or whatever, it is a much more specific use type of product and among the best I've ever tried.


Muddy, more of a boost.

    Comments about T-Rex Engineering Gristle Luxury Drive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I was looking for an overdrive pedal for my chain, nothing too fancy and I didn't want a very versatile pedal. This thing is literally WAY overpriced for what it delivers. DO NOT GET THIS PEDAL IF YOU WANT PREMIUM OVERDRIVE. The only reason I didn't send this thing back is because I needed a boost pedal in my chain anyways, but honestly I was a little disappointed in T-rex on this one. It is very touch sensitive and you can get some overdrive on the thing if you crank it, but if you crank it your sound becomes dirt mud.
