The Tonebug Reverb from T-Rex is a stunning reverb pedal built with one goal in mind: bring life to dry, flat-sounding, bedroom-bound guitar playing. The Tonebug Reverb pedal simulates real-life performance environments, from huge echoing concert halls and modern-sounding live stages to raunchy clubs and basement dives. But no matter what setting you choose, the Tonebug Reverb delivers loads of incredible T-Rex tone will keep you sounding like the best of them.
What makes the Tonebug Reverb such a versatile stompbox is its clever dual-mode feature. The mode switch lets you go from Modern's more contemporary reverb sounds to Spring for a world of vintage reverb that sounds almost too authentic to be true. The T-Rex Tonebug Reverb is really like having two separate peals in one.

I have had this pedal for over a year and after a good bit of tweaking and exploring, I have finally found a permanent setting. Besides the foot switch seeming a little cheap, this is a well built pedal. It did take a little getting used to and just doesn't have that affirmative click like really well made pedals do, although I've never had a problem with the unit malfunctioning. The missing click is also not a big deal since I basically have reverb on or off during a song and don't really change it during a song. With limited control and no volume control this is definitely not your everything reverb pedal, but it does serve a good solid place on your pedal board. None of my amps have reverb, so I was looking for a subtle reverb that I can leave on pretty much all of the time. After many hours tweaking, I believe I have fit the bill with this unit. I pretty much play blues music and grungy rock and I love this pedal. This pedal can get hissy with distortion though if settings are to high, and it can ring out to long and sound almost like a short echo and distort the repeats to mumble. As I play mid range based rock, this was a problem to get a decent tone that would blend with all of my fuzzes and still have a noticing effect on clean tones....but after a while I found my setting. Now that its set, I never turn it off. It adds a little something to everything I do. With my arsenal of 9 pedals, it works great with any combination of them and never gets in the way. If you play only clean tone you may want to consider something more expensive but to add a little something something to spice up the dynamics of your already awesome tone, this is the ticket.
After playing with my Tonebug Reverb for a couple of months, I couldn't be happier. I didn't want a pedal with a dozen types of reverb, I wanted something basic that sounds great and this pedal fits the bill perfectly. Would I give it four stars because it doesn't have more features? Absolutely not. I knew that when I bought it and it was EXACTLY what I was looking for. And by the way, it sounds a lot better than the pedals with more features that I tested.
This effect reverb pedal has a nice vintage look. It is made from a good brand and has nice tone. It includes modern and spring types of reverb.
The Trex Tonebug Reverb pedal is well buit and delivers 2 different reverb flavors. Modern and Spring. My amps don't have reverb built-in so I was lookig for an affordable add-on. I like the modern setting - it creates a nice deep reverb. But the spring setting is not deep enough for my taste and when the depth is turned up you loose some volume. Thus some of the more expensive pedals include a tone boost - which makes up for this loss. The modern setting though is really nice and this is a heavy well built pedal. Highly recomended. For the spring reverb - I went out and purchased a Chicklet by Malekko which is a really nice spring sound with lots of depth and no volume drop out as the depth increases. I also use a WayHuge AquaPuss. On the front side of these 3 I use a Catalyst Pedal and a FullDrive 2 by Fulltone. With this setup I can get as much distortion, drive and reverb I need. I run this into a Blackstar Artisan bridged with a Peavey Delta Blues (2x10). This setup really sings and all from Guitar Center with the exception of the Malekko Pedal - which I wish they would carry.
This is a good sounding reverb unit. It gives you two types of reverb - modern and spring. Both settings can go from very light subtle sounds to huge overwhelming reverb sounds. I've used this pedal for about a month now and can say that I wish it had a little more tweakability. Nice pedal if you're looking for something super simple.
