Meet the next generation of our classic tube reverb The gorgeous-sounding, tube-powered T-Rex Room-Mate has been a huge success – with guitarists around the world using it to bring their sound to life.
Now, T-Rex is proud to present the next generation of our Room-Mate reverb. It offers the same rich, tubey warmth you know from the first Room-Mate, but we’ve enhanced it based on your feedback.
They started by adding a decay knob – so you can adjust the length of your reverb trail all four modes. Then added a hi-cut knob for that great vintage vibe, and a gain knob – which makes it possible to use your Room-Mate in an effects loop without overloading the pedal’s input stage.
The new Room-Mate offers the same phenomenal-sounding Room , Hall and LFO modes you already know. It also comes with a completely revamped Spring mode that will simply blow your mind. When the decay is set low in Spring mode, Room-Mate emulates a short-spring reverb. Turn the decay up, and you get a killer long-spring reverb you just won´t hear anywhere else.
So whether you’re a long-time fan or just considering a Room-Mate for the first time, take a minute to listen to what this pedal can do for you sound. You’re going to love it.
Mix: Mixes the dry and the wet signal. Set at 12 you can hear the guitar go through
Decay: Determines the length of the spring, that is emulated
Hicut: Cuts the high notes on the tail of the reverb. Giving the tail a smooth sound
Level: Controls the output volume
Gain: Controls the level on the input signal. With this knob you can turn down the input signal, if it is too power full. The green light on top of the pedal will go red if the input signal is too high and makes the pedal distort.
Spring: Sounds like an old vintage Fender amp with the typical spring based reverb
Room: Typical room reverb. Like a clinic in a small room
Hall: Sounds like a big concert hall
LFO: Reverb with chorus
Pedal gives stereo output through the left and right output jack plugs.
Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.
For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.
For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.
I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
