iamqman's review"Fantastic sound"

T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate
T Rex is a pedal manufacturing company that really builds great sounding pedals for the professional and amateur guitarist. This is a pedal that is a tube power reverb pedal that gives you a great sounding tube reverb sound. There is quite a difference between a digital to analog, and spring reverb units compared to the tube driven reverb units. This is a pedal that gets you a nice sounding tube tone that really fills the air with a crate sounding reverb. Overall this is a great sounding pedal and it has a load of features and options to get you pretty much any sound that you are looking for.

UTILIZATION

T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate Tube Reverb Guitar Pedal Features:

Four tube-based reverb modes: Spring, Hall, Room, and LFO
Mix, Level, Decay, Mode, Hicut, and Gain controls
Stereo operation
Includes power supply


SOUND QUALITY

You have four control knobs of operation to choose from. Your first control knob is the mix which allows you to dial in the effected signal along with the dry signal. This gives you the overall effect within your main guitar tone. Next you have the decay which is how wide and lasting the reverb tone continues to drop off from the signal. Can you have a level control which gives you the overall volume level of this pedal. Next you have a mode control that gives you four types of possible sounds including spring,, Hall, and then a unique sound called LFO setting. Again this is a great sounding pedal and will get you the right amount of reverb for any song or recording that you need.

OVERALL OPINION

You can find these pedals for right around $370. That is a load of money for a single unit and especially a reverb pedal. I think a reverb pedal in my opinion shouldn't be more than $200. However this is he tube driven reverb so it's going to give you that organic tube sound that you can only find any tube driven reverb unit. Many times in order to get a tube driven reverb sound you have to buy the reverb tube amplifier. This is the pedal that you would own if you had the money to throw down on a simple reverb pedal. It has a great tone and clarity for most style of reveber in most applications.

T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate
The T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate is a reverb effects pedal made for use with electric guitar, but suitable for use with any type of electric instrument.  It has 1/4 inch connections (one for input, two for output) and is powered by a T-Rex power supply.  It also has a real tube in it for power that gives it a really warm sound.  It isn't rack mountable as it is a stomp box.



UTILIZATION

The configuration of the T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate is pretty easy to follow and I've never had any problems operating this pedal.  The pedal has parameters for mix, high cut, level, and mode, which there are four different ones to choose from.  The pedal is pretty self explanatory and after playing around with it for a few minutes you should be able to get the hang of using it.  The manual for the pedal is put together well and is thorough, but isn't necessary to learn the pedal.


SOUND QUALITY

The tones that are possible with the T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate are pretty awesome.  Each mode brings something new to the table, but even within each of the modes there is a lot of room to get a bunch of different reverb sounds.  The real tube that it has makes every sound on this pedal extremely warm as every sound is really thick and warm.  I usually use the pedal with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb so I can get some varying reverb sounds, and it really sounds great with this configuration both for recording and live shows.


OVERALL OPINION

I haven't had the T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate for all that long as I hesitated at first because of the heavy price tag, but in the end it was worth it to me because the tone is really outstanding.  I love the sound of this pedal and if the price wasn't so much I would imagine that more people would be using this pedal.  If you are looking for a really incredible sounding reverb pedal that is versatile, I would recommend biting the bullet and picking up a Room-Mate.

simonaeschimann's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Serious problem with the service"

T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate
The room mate has a problem on all models that T-rex recognize: when switching effect, there is a short cut signal.
The after-sales of T-rex has acknowledged the problem but refuses to go in for repair, exchange or return.
... Extremely disappointing for equipment intended to be professional and high price.

UTILIZATION

Easy to use.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is very good, but the problem of cutting the signal is unacceptable for a pedal in this category.

OVERALL OPINION

The sound is warm.
The pedal is way too expensive.

T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate
I will not dwell on features which have been well described in other reviews.
In my case I wanted a reverb to go with my head Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier with no reverb built.
After hearing the sound reproduction, I integrated into my pedals and I used instead of other intégraes reverb amp. The sound quality is excellent pedal.

UTILIZATION

In my case cons with my combo Mesa Boogie DC-5 it was necessary that I put it in the effects loop, reverb if does not fire even pottard triturating the gain of the pedal.
But once in the loop is perfect!

SOUND QUALITY

I use with guitar, but I have seen on youtube as some utiilisent for voice, which does not surprise me, given the quality of rendering.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a few months, and I do not regret any purchase. Frankly I also have a Lexicon MXP-1 is a bit old, but fairly well known for its reverb, and although the Room Mate has nothing to envy!

T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate
Reverb pedals numrique but with a lamp (as in the amp lights) two outputs spares (using either a mono or two-in Stereo)
it has a vintage look pretty and classy at the same time and barely larger than a boss!

UTILIZATION

4 buttons the volume of the reverb, the DGRE treble in reverb, the volume-General for the pedals (not zero-sound at all with the guitar), and select modes
No memory for presets but no need, we find its rglages in the blink of an eye
But I put 9 out of 10 only because bte possde a lamp (which gives the incomparable beauty that reverb!) Who will one day either be changed, so I issue a reserve about this because the lamp air difficult to ACCS and therefore difficult to change ...

SOUND QUALITY

The reverb produced by this PDAL is incredible! a warmth and sweetness that I had never before court (I test the rev-3, rev-5, Verbzilla, the holy grail ..) with a bypass transparent really,
I use it with a tlcaster Thinline in a vox ac 30 and it is beautiful!
it includes all four modes gniaux
on the other hand if you want reverb cathedral should not turn to this model, the reverb pedals that are deep enough and long my taste but perhaps not for everyone!

OVERALL OPINION

I for a month and I love everything about this pedals (being able to blow or boost the treble with high cut, for example)
CHRE but it is certainly a worthwhile, the concurrency has no chance against the quality of the reverb

AWESOME I tell you!

Scott Bis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

T-Rex Engineering Room-Mate
The T-rex room mate is a digital reverb pedal lamp which has between one and two output (mono or stereo).

UTILIZATION

The handling is very simple, there are four knobs of rglage, for a mix of fact, one for volume gnral output, one for frquences (reverb severe or acute) and one to manage the four modes.

SOUND QUALITY

The reverbs are good, natural and warm enough.
It is rather in room reverbs, so no sound eccentricity.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few weeks after having returned the Tc nova reverb that has a "better" reverb and more complete rglages n'tait but I got too transparent.
What I like most about the T-rex room mate is its transparency, it is the only reverb I had my last respects signal (I used the Line6 Verbzilla the EH Holy grail, the Boss RV5 and TC Nova reverb).
What I like least and it is a shame for the price, it is the impossibility to play on the duration of effect, it has 4 modes, and that's it.

The 4th mode is a reverb chorusse trs enjoyable in its light.

Yes, I will exprience with this choice again just for transparency.
