A rotary emulation that sounds like the original! The TC Electronic Vibraclone Rotary pedal effect offers the same dynamic sound of the classic rotating loudspeakers from the 1960's that Hendrix, Trower, Harrison and Gilmore used for their legenadry tones. You have two modes, Chorale and Tremolo and two turning knobs, one for Speed and one for Drive to create the rotary sound you are looking for. The TC Electronic Vibraclone emulates the Rotary speaker quite nicely, there were moments where we could almost feel the rotating loudspeakers moving in the cab. With its compact size and sweet price, we really recommend anyone who is on the lookout for a Rotary pedal to check it out.
A Wall of fuzz. But not only. The TC electronic Honey Pot Fuzz is the heavy brother of their Rusty Fuzz pedal. While both are vintage flavoured, they are nothing alike. The Honey Pot is a heavy gain fuzz pedal with a respectful amount of sustain and thick sound texture. That being said, it is in fact a quite dynamic pedal effect, turn the Sustain knob on the TonePedia player counterclockwise and you will see what we are talking about. It is simple to operate and consists three knobs in total, all are pretty straight forward. Get ready to melt some faces (vintage style) with the TC electronic Honey Pot Fuzz.
Flying solo. First impression of the TC electronic Tube Pilot Overdrive - wow. It is awesome sounding, in our opinion of course. You have your own ears so test it interactively on the TonePedia player and make your own mind. At a killer price of approx 50$, this 12AX7 tube driven overdrive is a steal. It is so easy to get a warm sound from this pedal, it is great for solo or rhythm and delivers fantastic vintage style tone. We see it as a great option for blues and classic rock players who seek for a dynamic and inexpensive tube pedal. Please take into account that the TC electronic Tube Pilot Overdrive does not take batteries.
A Reverb that takes you back in time! TC Electronic created with the Drip Spring Reverb a stunningly realistic emulation that perfectly captures the essence of the reverb sounds from the 50s and 60s. This pedal is probably the closest you're gonna get to e.g. a "surfy" reverb sound at such a ridiculously low price. The three-knob concept makes the handling very easy, it is a fun pedal to play around with. The TC Electronic Drip Spring Reverb comes in a sturdy metal box and offers a True bypass.
Up to 2 Octaves down! The TC Electronic Nether Octaver is an all-analog, true bypass pedal effect that can deliver 1 or 2 octaves below the original signal. It brings a warm, transparent and a voluminous bottom end sound that fattens your tone and works great when coupled with high gain! You have the choice of either using only one or both octaves mixed, while having the ability to control the volume of octave 1 and 2 separately. The TC Electronic Nether is darn easy to use and priced so well it is insane not to give it a try.
What's The Matter? TC have become more and more well known for creating interesting and ground breaking digital pedals. The Mash function on some of their pedals for instance is utterly amazing giving the user the power of an expression pedal from the standard bypass switch!However what TC are less well known for are their analog drives, which is a shame! TC have some great sounding drives which are often heralded by users as their "favourite" pedals. At this point its worth noting that the Tone Meister Paul Gilbert himself even used TC drives for a long while!The Dark Matter is their punch in the teeth pedal, designed to take on giants such as BOSS's MT-2 metalzone and guess what ... its pretty damn good.Featuring a tonne of gain on tap and powerful EQ section plus two EQ voicings its safe to say that this pedal can serve your high gain requirements (And its built like a tank)
The small yet big reverb by TC Electronic. TC Electronic Hall Of Fame Mini is small but sounds very big! Itâs one of the best Bonsai-Edition reverbs TC ever made. This pedal effect provides almost boundless sonic possibilities. The TonePrint editor helps to individualize your reverb sound.

All of this in a pedal that takes so little space on your board...
Rusty silicon fuzz that takes you back in time! As more and more fat sounding fuzz pedals appear in the market, it is nice to go back in time and enjoy some silicon-based velcro like fuzz sound. The TC electronic Rusty Fuzz does exactly that and in such a low price point that getting it is really a no-brainer. With the fuzz knob set low, the Rusty Fuzz will slightly "rust" your sound, giving it that broken vintage tone. The more you increase the fuzz level the more sustain and body you will get. If you are unsure what type of fuzz you need, we recommend A/B testing on TonePedia the Rusty Fuzz next to the TC electronic Honey Pot Fuzz as they are both different and great.

It does it all pretty sweet and again, it is priced so well you ought to give it a try.

Yes, it is a 2-Button awesomeness! At first look you might say 'What? only two buttons?'. Well, when something is good it does not need more than the necessary. The TC Electronic June-60 is a great reproduction of the legendary chorus circuit found in Roland Juno-60 synths. This chorus sound is so iconic you can hear it, probably without knowing it is it, in so many hits from the '80s. The June-60 can run stereo or mono, equipped with a true bypass switch and built with style yet still durable enough for the stage.

The TonePrint App lets you download sounds from famous guitarists or simply become your own pedal effect engineer by customizing your own flanger sound using the TonePrint software. As you might know, flanger pedals often have more than 3 controls. We like the fact that TC Electronic kept the UI of the Vortex simple and intuitive. Unless you are huge a flanger junkie, the Vortex will get you pretty much sorted out.
Small pedal with a lot of vibe. Shaker Vibrato has been the sleeper hit of the TonePrint series. Guitarists loved adding the life and vibe of both subtle and pronounced vibrato effects - and rightly so!

Now you can have all that made the original Shaker great in a pedal so small, and so awesome sounding, there's no excuse to not add it to your board!
A beast of a delay in studio quality! TC Electronic's The Prophet Digital Delay delivers more for its price than one could expect. The main thing that caught our attention was the 3-way switch offering three different rhythm modes: 1/16, 1/8 and 3/8. The 1/16 setting gets you into some very useful slap back echo sounds while the 3/8 mode gives you a wide dotted delay time range to create atmospheric sounds, think David Gilmore or the Edge. The Repeat knob allows you to adjust your signal feedback up to actually an infinite repeat. Use the Time knob to control the delay time. The Mix knob adjusts how much of the effect is mixed with the dry signal.
Compact with no compromises! The TC Electronic Corona Mini Chorus is the compact version of the Corona Chorus, equipped with the TonePrint technology and the TC Chorus algorithm.

Use the Tone, Level and Drive controls to shape your sound to be just as you like it and play away. The overall sound of the El Mocambo can be described as bluesy and dirty but we are sure this pedal will be useful for many other playing styles as well. We particularly liked the TC electronic El Mocambo Overdrive on single coils, it really brings that elusive mid range out.
Rock 'n' Roll history in a box! The TC Electronic Afterglow Chorus pedal effect brings a wide range of classic modulation sounds into your setup.
