What TC Electronic have to say…

Most of the time all you need is your bread and butter 3-button overdrives, studio delays, and subtle reverbs but every once in a while, you need something special to nail the tone of your favorite era artist or musical style.

That’s when you call in the specialists – highly skilled individualists who will excel at their specific task, succeeding where no one else can.

With state of the art digital algorithms and high quality materials, these pedals are made for the gigging musician who needs sturdy high performance tone tools as well as the bedroom heroes looking for cool tones.

Gauss Tape Echo

With the characteristic warm tones of the vintage tape echo machines of old, Gauss Tape Echo epitomizes the rich psychedelic sounds of Gilmour in the 70’s, Page’s wild oscillating explorations and Van Halen’s pitch altering fireworks.

Gauss features ultra-saturated delay tones with authentic low end attenuation and authentic wow and flutter that really thickens up your tone. It also works perfectly for 50’s slapback, elevanting your Scotty Moore licks into rockabilly heaven.


Vibraclone Rotary

The swirly sixties vibe of a spinning speaker cone was immortalized by Hendrix, Harrison, and Trower, providing a sonic background to match their skills.

Vibraclone Rotary features the syrupy Chorale mode and the watery Tremolo mode to accurately reproduce that old school whirl with the ability to meld the characteristic rotary modulation with some truly tasty saturation for a tornado of Texas tone á la SRV.


Drip Spring Reverb

The main ingredient of a solid surf guitar sound has always been a heavy spring reverb, conjuring forth a wash of resonance like a wave breaking on the shore. Drip Spring Reverb is named after its uncanny ability to produce the unique “drip” sound after picking a muted string on a reverb drenched amp.

But that’s just half the story – on subtle settings, Drip yields a wealth of classic guitar reverb known from all the old blues recordings, providing a sense of substance and sustain to a clean tone.


Fluorescence Shimmer Reverb

Harnessing the immaterial ether for a cavernous, stratospheric reverb wash, Fluorescence Shimmer Reverb puts the colossal, interstellar tones of Eno & Lanois at your disposal for an instantly grandiose orchestral guitar sound.

And if by chance you spent the early 90s gazing at your shoes while constructing haunting soundscapes, Fluorescence will definitely pour a gallon of fresh fuel on your fire.
