TC Electronic’s range of wallet-friendly effects pedals has just grown by four with the addition of the Sonic Specialists series.
TC Electronic has revealed the Sonic Specialists series at Winter NAMM. The new stompboxes include a tape echo, tremolo and two flavours of reverb.
The Gauss Tape Echo offers up a 70s-style tape delay with simple controls, sustain, which controls the feedback, delay,which controls delay time and volume, which controls the level of the repeats. There’s also a handy modswitch, which injects some tape-flavoured modulation to the repeats
The Vibraclone Rotary offers up deep and choppy tremolo that’s based on the classic Leslie speaker. It couldn’t be easier to control, with a knob each for speed and drive, with a switch for the subtle ‘Chorale’ setting,and the more extreme ‘Tremolo’tone.
The two-types of reverb are provided by the Drip Spring Reverb and the Fluorescence Shimmer Reverb. The Drip yields a classic spring tone that’s ideally suited to surf and retro rock, while the Fluorescence Shimmer recalls the octave-up ambience of the Edge and Brian Eno – endless, epic and ethereal.
