TC Electronic teams up with Motörhead's Phil Campbell
March 25, 2013
|TC Electronic announced the addition of Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell to the TonePrint artist roster. Phil created three TonePrints that infuse the Motörhead spirit into both rhythm - and lead sounds. Phil’s TonePrints for delay, vibrato and chorus are available to guitarists immediately and completely free of charge at www.tcelectronic.com/phil-campbell, or through our free TonePrint app for iOS and Android.
In addition to this, TC Electronic will be giving away Motörhead merch and a Flashback X4 signed by Phil Campbell. This competition is available worldwide, and can be entered by liking the TC Electronic Facebook page at www.facebook.com/tcelectronic. This competition ends April 15th.
Phil’s TonePrints are guaranteed to spice up tones with some old school undiluted rock’n’roll. His Flashback Delay TonePrint, called Bichon Frissé is a relatively short delay, which is a sound Phil uses on leads. In his words: "It's not too long, not too short - it's just right!". It’s great for classic rock solos that need a bit of air and vibe to them while remaining tight.
Phil’s TonePrint for Shaker Vibrato, called Roger's Bitch is a fast vibrato that harkens back to a Hendrix-type feel. This effect lets your playing shine through, but you will definitely not be in doubt whether it's on or not - in true Motörhead style, this one goes all in!
And Phil’s TonePrint for Corona Chorus called Fairy King is defined by a swirl that stops just shy of ‘fast’ with a shimmer that is nice and wide, and a sweet edge that works great with dirty sounds.
Tore Mogensen, Business Manager for Guitar at TC Electronic, adds: “What can I say? Things do not get more down’n’dirty rock than Motörhead. I’d be lying if I said these sounds work in a jazz context, but they have a very nice vintage feel with a bit of edge and tons of attitude - you simply gotta try them!”
