NikoLP's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent OD"

T-Rex Engineering Hobo Drive
Boutique pedal Overdrive / Boost analog
Mono input
Mono output
4 knobs
A mini switch
2 switches (bypass and boost)
easy access 9V battery


Simple configuration of two parts:
Part OD:
Preamp: Gain knob equals a
Tone: As its name implies
Master: This is Volume
we are going to sound very fat stoner to a sharp and precise overdrive

Part Boost
the knob adjusts the boost level (if I'm not mistaken, you can gain 20db)

Mini switch position of the boost in pre-or post-amp amp


Great sound, quality T Rex, nothing more to say
The boost can be used independently of the overdrive channel, making it a two in one pedal.
What makes the difference is the use of two effects in series. And there, the mini switch plays its role.
placed in the boost amp post, we have a config "classical" signal elevation upstream of the pedal. on the other hand, position pre-amp, we better understand the name of the Preamp Gain control for the boost overload the pedal and you get a very thick outline of the effect.
At first, it is not obvious to understand the principle of the pedal, but it shows that manages to find the sound you want, leaning a little more about what is proposed by T Rex! Anyway, it says in the instructions: turn the knobs and find your sound!


I have not tried this pedal until you have, I got it for my birthday, and frankly it's a cool effect.
I would have made that choice if I had the choice.
The price can be scary, but it is a great boutique pedal, which is two more in one, as often with T Rex.

The only advice I can give is not really TRY LA, like all effects!
