The opinion of the team: We are not going to lie to each other, the T-Rex Bloody Mary has a bad reputation. Indeed, many find it “muddy” and stuffed with “breath”. However, it is still a rare model so we wanted to test it. Verdict? It's sure that if you want to use it as a sharp and modern distortion, it's not a big gain. On the other hand, by being measured on the gain knob, the result is frankly interesting!
Since the pedal is relatively dark and tends to be fuzzy, it will easily go well with bright guitars, giving them an interesting base in the bass. The equalization is rather reactive and the Body switch is a good surprise! The latter will magnify the sound and slightly modify the voicing. In this configuration, the pedal is very fun to use for Stoner.
As a result, I better understand the disappointment of some with this pedal: Contrary to what the brand says, this pedal is not at all made for metal because it is too dirty. By cons, for grunge and stoner it does! Aficionados of sharp sounds should rather turn to references like the https://www.effects-area.com/produit/keeley-stahlhammer/.
