The Flashback delay also features TC Electronic's audio tapping technology, allowing you to set delay times by strumming your guitar, and a toggle switch allows you to switch between 16th notes or dotted 8s, for a more U2-like sound.

The Flashback features a spillover on/off switch as well as Delay Time, Feedback and Repeat controls, so you are always sure you get the sound you want without any hassle. Rounding out the pedals features are a small footprint, easy access battery hatch, true bypass, an analog-dry-through and the highest grade components.

    This is a very, very cool pedal, and I think solely as a delay, the Flashback stands out far beyond it's competitors in this price range. What's sad is that TC had the opportunity to create something truly amazing, but I think they missed it with a couple of the features. The looper is a huge disappointment. 40s of loop time is bigger than the DL4 and the EHX Hazarai, both of which cost more than the flashback, but it's looper is incredibly impractical. There is no way to adjust the loop volume against whatever you're playing over it. Turn the FX knob down, and EVERYTHING gets quieter (and vice versa). It's functional, but not versatile at all and way harder to use than it could have been. The other thing that is kind of a letdown is the inability to do sound-on-sound oscillation. I don't know anyone who does that very frequently, but nevertheless it's one of the things that can make delay pedals cool. Overall, this pedal completely outshines most of the other digital delays in it's price range (certainly the DD-7 for a little less), and comes close to the category of things like the DL4, DD-20, and Nova Repeater. The only things separating it from the more expensive digital delays are the sound quality and the ability to save and load presets. The Flashback isn't the game changer it could have been, but it's a great delay for the price.
    True bypass, stereo, audio tapping, dotted rhythms, big delay time, and lots of different modes at your disposal. The looper is a big letdown, and it's sad that you can't do sound-on-sound oscillation.
    Haven't used it long enough to really see what the build quality is like. If you're expecting anything close to the quality of true analog delay, you'll be disappointed by the sound of this pedal. As digital delays go, it's satisfactory.
    Even with the looping drawback, the Flashback still has an enormous number of features for the price.

    Last time I buy TC. I think they have quality control problems. And really don't care to find out what's wrong.

    Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This thing is so cool. More variety than I ever really needed but it is awesome to have. So many sounds from a little slapback to full on psychedelic madness the different modes are nice. I tend to stick with lo-fi, analog and mod and a few of the toneprints as well. Very cool feature.

    Don't get this if you need a looper it's a little bit on the weak side and you can't use it for all your fun delay effects either.

    So cool. Get one.

    Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This is the best small footprint delay pedal I have found. To the point- I needed a tap tempo delay with a dotted 1/8 note in the smallest foot print I could get for my pedal board. The greatest thing it does is hold the stomp button for 2 seconds and strum the tempo on your guitar and you have tapped you tempo in. I do a lot of U2'ish delay work for my church and this alone sold the Flashback to me. Great sound quality plus 10 different delays! They all sound good in their own ways. There is a generic looper that gives you 40 secsonds of stereo looping. No loop playback volume control so use your volume wisely when looping. I got it discounted and I am very impressed with it. this is my first TC Elec. prduct and I will consider them for future pedals

    I play a lot of Jazz & Gospel and generally don't use many effects but this pedal has opened more avenues of expression in my playing. It works just fine for my needs.

        Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

        What an awesome pedal! Sure it's a tad pricey but you definitely get what you pay for: a reliable and gorgeous sounding array of delay effects - all in one stomp box. I almost bought the carbon copy because at first all I wanted was a straightforward delay. Really glad I decided on this though. Not only is the analog amazing, but the tape sound is really lush too.

        Recently, though, I've become enamored with the Mod delay. I set the feedback at 2-3 o'clock, level up fairly high and the switch all the way down. Then use my volume knob to swell in some beautiful chords. Instant eargasm! With the right set up it almost sounds like some kind of galactic orchestra!

        Havent messed with the toneprint function, but kudos to TC for putting it on there. It theoretically makes the FB limitless. Apparently there are some killer sounds to choose from online.

        Do yourself a favor and buy the Flashback. So many good sounds to be had, and even more with toneprint. True bypass switching for those of us with high end amplifiers. And even a little looper that occasionally serves its purpose. They've left nothing out!

          Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This is a great pedal. The sound quality is great but the one thing I will say that it's definitely not plug and play. You can get great tones right out of the box but to utilize it fully, you need to spend some time with it. Also, the toneprint transfer doesn't work all that great if you have a Windows OS PC. It seems as if TC is slowly transitioning the whole toneprint software for smartphone usage and Apple centric products. But overall, yes, this is a great pedal. The sheer number of delays are worth the price. It also has a looper and that's a great feature to have.

            Just got this delay and am very impressed. Already have MXR Carbon Copy and Boss DD-2. Had to get this because my amp only takes line level effects through the effects loop. The FB fits the bill and it sounds great. The Analog and tape delays sound the best so far but more experimenting is needed. It's no wonder this pedal got Guitar Player's Editors' Pick. A couple drawbacks: The Mod delay's sound is not as good as the MXR with the mod button on but I never used the mod on the MXR much anyway. The delay knob is very sensitive (except on slapback) and its sensitivity changes when you change modes (i.e from 2290 to analog to tape).

              This is an excellent delay pedal. Do yourself a favor. If you have an iPhone, download the Toneprint app, update your firmware on the pedal, and go nuts! If your existing pedals are true bypass, no need to hook up directly to the pedal to flash a Toneprint. I flashed all of mine while still in the loop. Just make sure the pedal is on Toneprint, and the other pedals on your pedalboard are not turned on. I have 5 TCE pedals and 3 are Toneprint enabled. The app has all the Toneprints stored, and updates when new ones come out. Sweet! Turn up guitar, launch app, pick Toneprint, and press beam, put iPhone speaker close to pickup selected, DONE! You now have a name guitarist's tweak. A quick Thomas Blug delay, anyone?

                What a great pedal. It has so many features, and the sound is there. What is nice is the dry sound is analog. So important. Can't comment on the looping section of pedal, cause I haven't used it. The tape delay mode stands out, along with all the other modes. Very quiet, stereo in and out, buffered or true bypass. Also can use the effect 100 percent wet for effects loops. Handles any type of level you put in it whether its instrument or line level with no problem. Fantastic for synths. The effect level has its own control also. You really can't go wrong with the pedal and the price is right.
