From the Alberta to the Mudhoney, T-Rex have built enough sweet-sounding overdrive pedals to call themselves specialists in old-fashioned crunch. Inspired by America, designed in Denmark and made in Taiwan, the Hobo has a name that will appeal to blues fans everywhere, but it’s a more flexible unit than you might think. The controls are simple, but the fact that the clean boost can be placed either before or after the overdrive in the circuit gives this double pedal an extra dimension – because a boosted overdrive can sound quite different to an overdriven boost.
