TC Electronic reissue three classic effects pedals 02/01/07
TC Electronic have revisited their own legacy by reintroducing their Classic Pedal Series from the 1970s. The series consists of three reissues of the most sought after TC Electronic effects: the TC XII Phaser, the Booster+Distortion and the Sustain+Parametric Equalizer. TC say that now everyone has the chance to own the classic TC Electronic sounds, without paying premium prices for the original pedals. Hereâ€™s the rest of what TC have to say in their own wordsâ€¦ TC XII Phaser
The TC XII Phaser is a reproduction true to the sought after sound of the original. It is a clean-sounding and versatile phaser, featuring lots of tweaking possibilities with low-frequency oscillation speed controls, width and function controls and a 4-8-12 kHz filter selector, just like the original. The TC XII Phaser can be used in numerous ways - from clean funky chords or overdriven riffs to heavily saturated leads. Booster+Distortion
The Booster+Distortion is both a signal booster and a distortion pedal that recreates the classic sound of the original in every nuance. It features the original Bass- and Treble EQ, as well as output level and distortion level knobs. In addition to that, the Classic reissue features a built-in Noise Gate control, enabling you to control your distortion. The Booster+Distortion can be used as an â€œalways onâ€� boost pedal to increase the signal of the guitar, making the tubes work harder and thus generating more overdrive. Or it can be used as a boost pedal used to occasionally highlight a specific solo, lick or passage. Sustain+Parametric Equalizer
The Sustain+Parametric Equalizer is a studio quality compressor in pedal format. Like the original it features full controls for Frequency, Sustain and Function. A modern touch is found in the highly effective parametric EQ, making it suitable for anything from subtle compression to extreme sustaining effects. The Sustain+Parametric Equalizer can either be used to simply increase and decrease the output signal when the signal falls above or below a certain level. Extreme compression can also be used as an effect used for funk or country playing giving the sound a special percussive â€œthudâ€�. Last but not least compression will increase sustain of the notes played because the output volume will gradually be increased as the input volume guitar drops. Pricing and Availability:
