The make up of the T-Rex Engineering Reptile isn’t hard to follow and at the same time the pedal has a lot to offer in terms of parameters. The pedal has knobs for echo, level, repeat, and time, as well as smaller knobs for depth and speed that fall under the ‘flutter’ category. The pedal then has switches for on/off and for modulation, the latter of which is an incredibly cool sounding feature. I haven’t seen a manual for this pedal and wouldn’t think that you would need one as it is easy enough to figure out on its own.
The sound quality heard from the T-Rex Engineering Reptile is pretty awesome overall. The pedal is quite versatile and it is possible to get a wide range of different delay sounds. The modulation part about this pedal is what really makes it special in my opinion as it adds a whole other dimension that isn’t found on other delay pedals. It is hard to describe the sound that kicks in when you press the modulation switch but it kind of adds a certain twang and trail to the sound that is really awesome. While I usually use the T-Rex Engineering Reptile for recording with a ’76 Fender Twin Reverb and a Fender Strat, this will work great with just about any configuration of for any sort of use.
I first used the T-Rex Engineering Reptile about a year ago and I was immediately impressed. The sound quality and the amount of different tones available really make this a stand out pedal in my opinion. While it is a bit pricey, it is an extremely sturdy and well built pedal and will last a while if treated right. All in all, the T-Rex Engineering Reptile is a unique pedal that I would highly recommend checking out.
