T-Rex Mudhoney II

Dual Distortion / Fuzz Pedal for Electric GuitarT-Rex tinkers great pedals; Having become legendary (among bluesmen), the Alberta is a modern Tubescreamer with a great sound. Those for whom the Alberta was too tame would find the Mudhoney to be just right. The Mudhoney's core sound is somewhat harder, but above all more flexible than the Alberta, being able to create countless sounds, from a soft jazz (rock) sound set to fuzzy brutal distortion. Aside from the usual controls of Gain, Level and Tone, the Boost switch ensures endless gain and sustain.

Now there is the Mudhoney II and it is a double source of joy: Everything that was good in the first model has now been doubled: Two identical channels that allow, for example, you to set a crunch and a Lead channel. Along with the pure Amp sound then you have a three-channel system - which is completely sufficient for most guitar players. Only the name is still not always right - It would not be right to call it Muddy, since it allows even chords to be clearly defined with hearty distortion.

An excalibur of a distortion pedal.

12.12.2015
Solidly made and robust out of the box with a really quite straightforward front panel considering it offers two channels or voicings.

I'm a little unsure as yet whether this simplicity is a good thing or whether it could use a little more sound sculpting. But rather like a tubescreamer its often a case of matching the tone to your guitar and amp and then seeing what feels right in terms of gain.

Its at this point the Mudhoney really excels. While labelled a distortion pedal it can provide an outstanding transparent warm overdrive that pushes your amps natural tone nicely. But set one (or both) channels to "boost" and you've got a snarling beast on tap.

It sits really well in front of my Orange Head and has that "british classic" feel to my ears.

The sound is hard to praise enough. It oozes warmth but has some real teeth with some fuzz creeping in on higher gain settings. Plenty of oomph and bottom end. Highly recommended.

Mudhoney, Mudhoney, Glorious Mudhoney

Nigel W., 03.06.2013
I use a class A valve amp and wanted a pedal that delivered more. The Mudhoney is a 2-channel pedal which produces some gorgeous distortion on my Fender strat and Squire jazzmaster. You can either set the same distortion on both channels and use a level boost on the second for soloing, or you can dial in different rhythm and lead distortions. The pedal can, of course, be played through the clean or drive channel on the amp, making the sonic palette available even wider. Terrific.
