    What tonal range does this pedal have compared to the other trex pedals?

    sounds great?

    @jorgepavel You can, yes. Although from my own experience I would have to say that it does better dirt sounds than clean.. Just my opinion, of course. 🙂

    hello burguerman. a question, can i use it as a clean amp simulator at minimum gain settings?, sorry my bad english.

    @borlandwes All of the SpinDoctor-on-desk stuff is through the computer.

    Did you use that one as direct-out to computer or did you use any amplifier?

    @GAIVS2007 I agree-it sounds sterile and lifeless to me too.

    Must admit I love my Spindoctor. I’ve got it running into a Boss 10 band EQ then into a Blackstar HT-5 on clean connected to a 2×12 cab. TC Electronic Modulator, Delay and Reverb in the effects loop, sounds great. It turns a good little 5W amp into 4 channel monster 😉

    I don’t know that there is anything digital but to be honest I haven’t looked under the hood. Sorry I can’t be more help. You might have to shoot T-Rex an email to clarify that one. Thanks for watching!

    Hi Burgerman, thanks for a great demo. It’s probably me, but I find the SpinDoctor to be a bit sterile in sound, while I expected some warmth from the tubes. Anything digital going on in there?

    hahahaha point taken!

  11. Burgerman666 on January 6th, 2011 4:47 pm

    Thanks! It’s not hard. 🙂

  12. Burgerman666 on January 6th, 2011 4:57 pm

    Yes, but the knobs spin.

  13. Burgerman666 on January 6th, 2011 5:50 pm

    She does indeed play music. She’s learning piano and guitar very slowly but isn’t afraid to attack any instrument lying around the house and we have many. She’s one of us… 🙂

    It’s very cool unless you’re on mushrooms and aren’t expecting it. Then it’s satan.

  15. Burgerman666 on January 6th, 2011 6:54 pm

    Thank you sir! She does indeed rock my world and by the sounds of it, many others’ as well. That’s a nice thing. Cheers.

    Heheh. Thanks. I think. Sadie doesn’t go much for the crochet and knitting though. 🙂 It’s all Barbie and Shockwave at the moment.

    It’s incredible how quickly the knobs spin round to their pre set positions… great pedal, sounds awesome, bet it costs the earth!

  19. PoposNewGuitarChan on January 6th, 2011 8:04 pm

    wow that’s a killer pedal

  20. telecastersRthebest on January 6th, 2011 8:27 pm

    wow amazing tone you’re getting out of that thing!

  21. smoss469 on January 6th, 2011 9:23 pm

    Ill bet this thing is EXPENSIVE!

  22. xylophonografi on January 6th, 2011 9:37 pm

    I love the auto spinnig knobs more than the sound. It’s cool!

    Sadie’s a fun kid. Does she play music?

  23. DemoColorScheme on January 6th, 2011 10:12 pm

    Whoa, how cool is that, to see the dials spin to the positions you’ve stored them in.

  24. shipwrecksilence on January 6th, 2011 11:04 pm

    Sadie is like the Vanna White of guitar pedals.

  25. garytelecastor on January 6th, 2011 11:54 pm

    I really like the vids.
    Your daughter ROCKS.
    Very Cool kid.
    Nice to have these here to check out these pedals before buying.

Got something to say?
