Did you know that the guitar is thought to have been inspired by an instrument called the cithara, which was brought to Hispania by the Romans in 40 AD? Guitars have come a long way since then! For hundreds of years, guitars were purely acoustic instruments. However, the instrument metamorphosed in 1931 when the first electric guitar was introduced. Initially, the electric guitar was popular amongst jazz musicians, but with the advent of rock n roll, a whole new generation of electric guitar lovers came to the forefront.
The raucous energy of rock n roll demanded that the sound of the electric guitar be exposed to greater technological innovation, hence, the birth of guitar effect pedals. Early guitar tools used to generate these kinds of effects were powered by vacuum tubes. They were paradoxically heavy yet fragile, and their bulk made them difficult to transport. As well, early guitar pedal kits were far too expensive for most musicians to afford.
This all changed in the early 1960s when transistor technology made small, stand alone electric guitar pedals possible. These pedals made the electric guitar not only easier to play, but catalyzed a period of experimentation that transformed rock n roll. There are many different kinds of guitar pedals, including walrus pedals, delay pedals, the pigtronix infinity looper, and booster pedals, the later of which raises the volume or create distortion on one specific note.
Some of the most popular guitar pedals are T Rex guitar pedals made by T Rex Engineering located in Denmark. Of all the T Rex guitar pedals, the Replica may be the most popular right now. Replica T Rex guitar pedals provide digital delay. Replica T Rex guitar pedals are capable of mimicking the aural experience of classic delay equipment vis a vis the engagement of a Brown circuit. This circuit facilitates a high cut filter, thus muffling the sound.
A number of famous people use Replica T Rex guitar pedals, including David Gilmour, Pete Townshend, John Mayer, Steve Morse, Andrey Makarevich, and Gary Moore. Replica T Rex guitar pedals allow up to 2000ms of digital delay at a sampling rate of 200 kHz. The controls of Replica T Rex guitar pedals are made up of of four knobs, Echo, Repeat, Level, and Tempo. Replica T Rex guitar pedals have two foot switches. One is for on and off, and the other is for tap tempo. Replica T Rex guitar pedals also come with two mini switches. Perhaps no other pedals are as prized and respected these days as Replica T Rex guitar pedals.
