T-Rex Replica Delay Pedal
True-Bypass Digital delay with easy to use Tap Tempo and warm sound.
ONE OF THE BEST DELAY PEDALs IN THE WORLD!
Guitar Player Magazine gave it the editors Pick-Award.
Whenever the Replica is tested, it always gets top rates.
A lot of famous players are using this pedal. Just have a look at "Who plays T-Rex". You will see Carlos Santana, Jim Weider, Gary Moore, John Mayer, Greg Lake, Steve Morse etc.
Just leave it on! - most players say
It is hard to believe, that this delay pedal is digital. It gives the warmth of all-tube echo and also cool digital delay in studio quality. All with the convenience of one pedal.
TIME, REPEAT, MIX and LEVEL knobs allow for quick, precise control. A Hi-cut button cuts high frequencies on repeats - perfectly simulating the tone of a 60s era tape echo.
With a simple flick of a switch you can alter the delay’s subdivision parameter from 1/4 to 1/8 triplets, and to make the delay fit your purpose we even added a Tap-Tempo switch to get you right in time with your tune.
For example, for most Pink Floyd and U2, use triplets and tap in the song tempo for the perfect setting.
Play it and youll buy it!
All soundfiles were recorded in Sun Studio (Copenhagen) by Mika Vandborg, solo artist and guitarplayer in "Gnags" and "Dicte".
Mika plays a Fender Stratocaster 1964 and a T-Rex T25 BigTone Combo.

The DIRECT plug on the top is an output plug. The "dry" signal is sent directly through the pedal to the DIRECT plug without disturbance. You can use this plug to:
- send the signal to a tuner
- send the signal to an extra amplifier and get a stereo like sound, when playing two amplifiers
- make a retro sound. You send the delayed signal using the OUTPUT plug to a stereo simulator, that sends the stereo signal to two amplifiers. You connect a third amplifier using the DIRECT plug. Retro sound!
The ECHO –knob determines the amount of processed signal in the signal mix.
- In minimum position only the direct signal is heard
- In maximum position only the delay (processed signal) is heard
The LEVEL –knob sets the overall volume.
At maximum level, the signal is boosted approx. 3dB.
The REPEAT –knob controls the number of repetitions of the delay signal.
- In minimum position the delay signal is only repeated once
- In maximum position the delay signal is repeated to almost infinity
The TEMPO –knob sets the delay time.
- Minimum delay time is approx. 12 milliseconds
- Maximum delay time is approx. 1500 milliseconds (1.5 seconds)
The LED indicator below the TEMPO inscription indicates the delay time.
When the TEMPO –knob is turned while playing, the delay signal is muted. You still hear the normal sounds, but you will not be able to make crazy sounds by moving the tempo knob while playing.
The TAP TEMPO -footswitch enables you to tap the delay time while playing.
The SUBDIVISION –button generates quarternote triplets of the tapped tempo. First you hit the button, then you tap the tempo using the TAP/TEMPO footswitch. Instead of coming on the beat, the echo now comes between the beats like 1-echo-2-echo-3-echo-4 etc.
To really hear the difference, it is recommended to use a drum machine or similar to hold the beat while using the SUBDIVISION function.
The BROWN –button is a High-Cut filter that alters the tone of the repeats. The result is a warmer, smoother delay sound reminiscent of the tone of a 60´s era tape echo. It really gets quite dark, the normal setting is best for most people.
The MIDI –socket allows you to control the tempo externally. (CTL. No. 20)

Power supply (comes with the pedal):
This is the coolest feature, the power supply will work anywhere in the world. It comes with plug adaptors to fit most power sockets in the world.
100, 115 or 230V AC/50-60Hz, depending on your country standard. It provides 12 volt DC and 300 mA.
I have some info (but not sure) that you can use a 12V AC output (like PP/AC from voodoo lab).
The pedal works with a 12 volt DC power supply, but it consumes up to 300 mA. Some DC power supplies can't deliver sufficient power - at peaks. So you should go higher, to probably 500 mA.
Usually you can hear if the power is not sufficient, will have some distortion. The new voodoo lab PP2+ will work ok if you use the LINE6 outputs, with the DIP switch ON for higher voltage and higher current.
