TC Electronic turns TonePrint pedals into dedicated bass effects 19-Jan-12
TC tells us that they are changing the game for bass players with their TonePrint pedals, letting some of the greatest bass players design their personal tones and making them available as free downloads. An impressive line-up of top bass players have already contributed including Nathan East (Clapton, Fourplay, etc.), Mark King (Level 42), Divinity Roxx (Beyoncé), Gail Ann Dorsey (Lenny Kravitz), Charles Cave (White Lies), Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Nine Inch Nails, Beck), Uriah Duffy and more.
TC say that the list of Bass TonePrint artists is ever-expanding, making these pedals a never-ending source of funky, grungy, slappin', thumpin', rockin' custom tones with tons of low-end personality and inspiration.
The TonePrint pedal series consists of Flashback Delay, Corona Chorus, Vortex Flanger, Hall of Fame Reverb and Shaker Vibrato. All Bass TonePrints are available as free downloads, or as part of the ground-breaking TonePrint App for smartphones that allows users to simply beam Bass TonePrints through the pickups of their bass and directly into their pedals.
