TC Electronic Effects
The beginnings of TC Electronic can be traced to Denmark. That's where Kim and John Rishøj, brothers and musicians, first began tinkering with pedals in the 1980s. Their breakout effects unit was the Stereo Chorus + Pitch Modulator & Flanger, which turned out to be so popular that it's enjoyed decades in the spotlight. Other effects pedals were soon to follow, building up a stellar reputation for great sound quality that TC Electronic is still known by today.
One of the most well-known musicians to put TC Electronic to the test onstage is John Petrucci. Their pedals have been on his board from the early '90s right up to today, and that relationship is what led to his Dreamscape being produced as TC's first signature pedal. This stompbox is a great example of the power of TC's TonePrint system, which gives you an amazing degree of customization since you can freely download new TonePrints to fine-tune the sound of the pedal.
If it's a rack-mounted effects unit that you're after, then you'll want to start with a look at the TC Electronic G-Force. Designed from top to bottom for professional guitarists, this processor comes with dozens of presets and supports eight individual effects with totally customizable behavior. The G-Force makes editing a breeze, and you can take it a step further by hooking up an expression pedal or MIDI controller to get total command over every detail of your sound.
So go ahead and take your pick: pedal or rack, TC Electronic's effects have your number. Whether you're interested in personalization or simply aspiring to follow in the footsteps of artists like John Petrucci, you're looking at a selection of effects that can definitely take you there.
