NAMM 2011: TC Electronic Guitar Effects & Distortion Pedals

January 12, 2011 by  



TC Electronic Guitar Effects & Distortion Pedals

TC Electronic introduces 7 amazing guitar pedals that deliver first-class tones right out of the box, featuring a true bypass and analog-dry-through design that guarantees maximum tonal integrity and ultimate clarity. On top of that, 5 of these new pedals – Corona Chorus, Flashback Delay & Looper, Vortex Flanger, Shaker Vibrato and Hall of Fame Reverb – let users play with unique tones created by some of the world’s greatest guitar players.

TC Electronic believes in moving the possibilities of guitar forward and the 5 pedals mentioned above feature a new and ground-breaking concept called ‘TonePrint’ that gives users instant access to the sounds of their favorite guitar heroes. A TonePrint isn’t just a static preset, it’s a complete re-tuning of the pedal including the sound and how the pots react – everything that makes a pedal unique.

TC Electronic has collaborated with some of the best guitarists in the world – such as John Petrucci, Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, Joe Perry, Orianthi and Doug Aldrich – to create the first batch of TonePrints, but that’s just the beginning – the list of contributing artists will expand massively in the future!

All of these custom made TonePrints can be downloaded at TC Electronic’s website, and best of all – it’s easy, fast and totally free!

Shaker Vibrato
Time to shake things up with this awesome vibrato! This beauty features two types of vibrato: a classic true pitch vibrato and ‘latch mode’ where the effect is only active when you press and hold the switch. This allows for subtle vibrato and faux-whammy bar effects without having to tap dance all night. To top if off, intuitive Speed, Depth, Color and Ramp controls let the users make their own ‘shakes’ on the fly. [ Check the price ]

Vortex Flanger
This flanger goes from classic flanger sounds to a 747 taking off! Speed, Depth, Feedback and Delay-Time controls offer a creative and expansive palette of tonal options. Vortex Flanger is built with guitarists in mind, so it features a toggle switch to go between classic pedal flanger tones and 60’s tape-flange effects.

Corona Chorus
Corona Chorus is the go-to pedal for that shimmering and warbly goodness. With two different chorus settings – the classic, world-renowned TC Electronic SCF pedal and a Tri- Chorus – as well as a custom TonePrint setting, Corona Chorus handles any situation or musical style with flying colors. Also, stereo inputs and outputs ensure super flexible set-up possibilities, and Speed, Depth, Color and Level controls allow for instant tweaking. [ Check the price ]

Flashback Delay & Looper
Flashback Delay & Looper features 7 seconds of delay time and every delay type one could ever wish for – from TC Electronic’s legendary 2290 delay to old-school tape echo. In total, there are 9 different types to choose from, and it even doubles as a looper! Flashback Delay & Looper also features TC Electronic’s audio tapping technology, allowing users to set the delay times by strumming the guitar, and a toggle switch that goes between quarter notes, dotted 8s or stereo with different values left and right.

Hall of Fame Reverb
Hall of Fame Reverb is a collection of the ultimate reverbs, packed tightly in one cool pedal that handles any situation that calls for a touch (or handfuls) of rich reverberation. In total, Hall of Fame Reverb offers 10 reverb types for a world of inspiration! Halls, Plates, Rooms, Chambers, etc. will cover anything from subtle ambience to full-blown cathedral greatness, and Decay, Color and Level controls allows for easy and instant tweaking of the sounds. Further, stereo inputs and outputs, handling both instrument and line level/FX Loop signals, ensure super flexible routing options. [ Check the price ]

Dark Matter Distortion
Dark Matter Distortion is all about that powerful, super-musical roar of an early plexi – a sound that will satisfy even the pickiest players.

MojoMojo Overdrive

Guitarists everywhere are always looking for that little extra push over the cliff, a touch of extra bite, body and tone. MojoMojo Overdrive will add that flash of perfection, providing a crisp and clear overdrive with a rock-solid bottom end. Quite simply, MojoMojo Overdrive is like adding another channel to the amp, and it will sound like it always belonged there. [ Check the price ]
