The Alberta overdrive pedal was one of the first pedals T-Rex produced, and it crystallizes everything this Danish company is all about – tone, tone, tone. It's not about Alberta's controls. They're plain minimalistic, with just three knobs – gain, level and tone – in addition to the ON/OFF switch. What sets this pedal apart is its phenomenal sound, no matter how you set the controls.
Some people say Alberta was born to play the blues – and it certainly does deliver that vintage tubey warmth that bluesmen are always looking for. But T-Rex would never try to tell you what kind of music to play. We recommend Alberta for everything from Muddy Waters to White Stripes – and we guarantee that this pedal will deliver no matter what kind of music you play.
Ever wonder what makes T-Rex pedals like the Alberta overdrive so different from what other companies offer? If you ever visited our offices in Vejle, Denmark you'd understand straight away. We're not a company that makes music equipment. We're sonic craftsmen who have built a company to deliver the tone we've always looked for in our own gear.
