Amazing range of quality phaser tones with true bypass and TonePrint versatility.

TC Electronic introduced the original TonePrint line of pedals back in 2011 and instantly they became a success, with a no-nonsense approach to the essential functions guitarists want, along with the ability to load TonePrints from the megastars of rock royalty. Not just resting on their laurels, and listening to what guitarists worldwide have been asking for, TC Electronics has created the Helix Phaser. Guitarists get all the classic phaser sounds, from subtle sweeps to massive sonic bends straight out of the box. However, with the ability to design their very own pedal via the TonePrint editor, this makes Helix Phaser one of the most flexible and versatile phaser pedals ever.

Tons of guitarists throughout history have sworn by phasers as their secret tone weapon. Its an effect thats helped define countless legendary records within the world of pop, rock, metal and indie. Once you kick in the Helix Phaser, youll know why. With its extensive set of controls, the Helix Phaser enables you to dial in everything from vibrant vintage-sounding Gilmour swirls and big-and-bold Van Halen sweeps to more modern phaser tones a la Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead.

Waves of Versatility
You know we cant release anything without putting that certain TC twist on it. So instead of making a simple set-it-and-forget-it phaser, we went ahead and created the most flexible and versatile phaser ever. Youll get everything from subtle sweeps to massive sonic bends straight out of the box, but hook it up to our free TonePrint Editor and all thats left to say is holy mother of tone! Tone-tweaking paradise awaits, with only the sky and your imagination as the limit.

As if the freedom to completely create your own dream phaser from the ground up via the TonePrint Editor wasnt enough, youll also get instant access to amazing recreations of some of the most legendary phaser units ever, plus custom-tuned phaser sounds created by some of musics finest via the free TonePrint App for Android and iOS.

From slow, evolving sweeps to fast, pulsating spins. Its all there and then some. Just turn this knob and decide how fast you want to go.

Want to tame those sweeps a little? Or maybe go for a full on psychedelic-fest? Turn this dial and find your personal sweet spot.

Turn this dial for a more pronounced and resonant phaser effect and get ready to feel the feedback.

This controls the overall mix between your dry sound and the phaser effect. Crank it if you want to be heard, or dial it back if you like your phaser tones
extreme but low in the mix.

Want your phaser tones gritty and swooshy, or maybe a little more smooth and rounded? Flip the mini-toggle and choose your style. Set it in the middle and activate the TonePrint functionality for your own custom-made phaser sound.

True Bypass
Helix Phaser was made to let the "you" in your playing shine through. Its True Bypass design ensures zero tone coloration, letting your tone shine through with no loss of high-end.

Helix Phaser always lets your original sound pass without ever converting it to digital, keeping every nuance in your tone intact with zero latency.

Comments about TC Electronic Helix Phaser True Bypass Guitar Effects Pedal:

Great pedal, very versatile, easy to get a great sound rite out of the box, also the tone print technology is excellent and easy to use. Can get everything from E.V.H. to Pink Floyd, and with the tone print editor, you can create your own personal tone print, or get one of the tone prints from your favorite artist, then tweek it to your own personal taste. What could be sweeter, bottom line TC Electronics makes great sounding pedals, with true bypass that don't mess with your tone. I know, cause I have several others, including the Hall Of Fame Reverb, the Viscous Vibe, Spark Booster, Mojo Mojo Overdrive and of course the Poly Tune 2. Gotta love these pedals, all kinds of pro's use them, enough said get some, you will be very glad you did!!!

Comments about TC Electronic Helix Phaser True Bypass Guitar Effects Pedal:

Bought this mainly for re-creating the original 1970's stereo Mutron Bi-Phase sound for use with my Korg Kronos using a Fender Rhodes voicing. Comes pretty close using the stock Mutron tone print, without the original analog background noise, of course. I'm in process of tweeking the tone print to get closer. All in all, a good deal, given that a good used stereo Mutron now goes for $1500. Should have kept mine. I find that the Helix and the Hall of Fame Reverb are studio quality effects in a pedal format. I regularly run the Hall of Fame in my analog mixer's effects loop. Quality is more than adequate for live performance or even recording.
