OVERVIEW

A user-friendly delay that features the sounds of yesterday with the reliability and quality of today.

The Alter Ego V2 Vintage Echo Delay is a collaboration between ProGuitarShop and TC Electronic that delivers a plethora of classic to modern delay tones.

Sound Repeats
With Alter Ego 2 you get 9 vintage delay sounds carefully reproduced by the echo experts at ProGuitarShop and TC Electronic. And trust us, these guys know echo tone and we know you'll agree once you hear it! You'll find everything from sweet saturated EchoPlex* repeats, the unique magnetic drum delays of the legendary Echorec*, an exclusive modulated take on TC's own 2290 delay unit to tons of other classic echo tones. Heck, if we didn't know any better, we would be sure that this pedal contained real moving parts.

Back To The Future
Alter Ego 2 has received an elegant graphical overhaul so it's not just your tone that receives a massive upgrade, but also the coolness-factor of your pedal board. Combine that with stereo I/O, the amazing audio-tapping feature and the innovative TonePrint technology and you've got yourself a pedal that may sound old-aged but is practically taken straight from the space-age.

Comments about TC Electronic Alter Ego V2 Vintage Echo Delay Effects Pedal:

I've been chasing a good delay pedal for the guitar for years... this is like my 5th in 7 years... my search may be over. Tough to find a pedal that sounds good, is reliable & has decent features for under 200, but this one nails it. I think I'm satisfied. The delay sounds are fantastic (I use mostly EREC2 and the reverse setting). When I bought it I spent some time going thru the presets... all seemed good, all very modulated which generally serves my tastes. One issue I had was that the delay times and feedback levels are all different for each preset at any given knob settings. This means you can't quick flip from one sound to another w/o changing delay time, sometimes radically. This could probably be addressed in "TonePrint", but I haven't tried that yet. This delay does not actually have a 'tap' tap function... it's a 'strum-while-switch-depressed' function and I haven't had much luck with it. I did find the looper quite sweet and easy to use. Very well built box, has been 100% reliable for the 6 mos. I've had it.

    Comments about TC Electronic Alter Ego V2 Vintage Echo Delay Effects Pedal:

    I use the Alter Ego V2 for both slap-back and longer "epic guitar" delays. I have to admit that I usually use it in Echoplex or Echorec modes for the longer delays, and usually BDM2 for shorter delays. I was able to almost instantly dial in useful sounds, though I haven't come close to exploring the limits of this pedal yet.

    The stereo in and out is an unexpected and nice feature. The foot switch is very quiet and easy to articulate, and the pedal is very quiet when engaged. I did some A/B comparisons with the delay levels turned all the way down, and couldn't tell the difference between the bypass and "dry" signal.

        Comments about TC Electronic Alter Ego V2 Vintage Echo Delay Effects Pedal:

        Over the past 30+ years I have used too many delays to count them all. Finally I have found one delay (ahhh 9 plus tone print) that will not end up being sold off! Not all of the modulated delays will be used and I do wish the modulation feature could be turned off. Could be I just have not found a use for all the included delays. But for all of the "good" this pedal offers, the "bad" is really negligible. Love the tone print feature that adds another effect of your choice. All in all, the best compact delay, that is simple to use and find a group of decent tones, a real cost effective delay. Love it!

        I use it for ambient delays in the loop of my amp. Most of the presets have too much modulation fo me, but I downloaded the Tone Print Editor and whipped up a straight delay for those needs. Sounds great. I mix in just enough to notice.

              Though I've never owned a piece of TC Electronics gear before, but have alway known of their great quality. Well, this pedal has been a revelation. The shear beauty of the sounds took me aback. I've had a Line 6 DL4 for some time and have always been impressed with the versatility it displays, but the Alter Ego V2 is truly a work of art. Every patch exhibited gorgeous detail and lushness. It's definitly a pedal I could see using all the time, squeezing out every option it offers. It's not a sound effect. It's an enhancement of sound.

              Comments about TC Electronic Alter Ego V2 Vintage Echo Delay Effects Pedal:

              This is a great delay pedal with amazing classic sounds which will make any guitar line or solo ooze with style and complexity. I only wish there was a tap tempo/expression input. I like being able to adjust on-the-fly, which is not an easy task with the tap function of the alter ego.

              However, it works excellently when establishing phrasing and soloing. Top pedal with value for anyone.

                  This thing is so fun , 9 different vintage delays! Tone print is very cool, you can download the app to your phone and beam customized sounds to your pedal. It's hard to go through and describe every type of delay on the pedal but you can get subtle, soft repeats to long , intense modulated echoes. I got this on sale and it was a great deal! I love the sparkly, analog like tones that this thing puts out. Beautiful

                    Comments about TC Electronic Alter Ego V2 Vintage Echo Delay Effects Pedal:

                    I have been playing for more than 30 years although I no longer gig. I do a lot of recording however as I have been constructing my home studio for the last 10 years. I do not play cover tunes at all these days and spend the little time I have writing and recording originals. I mic the guitar and bass amps and derive my effects as I'm playing rather than using software to add effects later. I don't like amp/effects simulations generated from software because it sounds like software. Having said that, this pedal is fantastic for studio use as the modulations of the different delays lend themselves nicely to creating new sounds. Unlike the T2 reverb, which I also own, this pedal would fit in nicely during live performances as it is still possible to get a nice delay without the modulations. Both the T2 and Alter Ego work beautifully in the recording studio and inspire me to create new soundscapes. I now own the Flashback and the Alter Ego 2 delays as well as the Hall of Fame and Trinity T2 reverbs and believe these are the best delays and verbs out for anywhere even remotely close to the price.
