TC Electronic is adding yet another milestone to its already impressive TonePrint program by joining forces with the industry defining music chain Guitar Center and releasing Transition Delay, a compact delay pedal that features four TonePrints exclusively tweaked by Barry Mitchell - Guitar Center’s Director of Merchandise and an accomplished guitarist. Transition Delay is available exclusively through Guitar Center and Musicians Friend.
Transition Delay features all the sounds of TC Electronic’s runaway success Flashback Delay pedal, with four added exclusive TonePrints that were meticulously customized by Guitar Centers in-house tone connoisseur, Barry Mitchell.
The first TonePrint, named EVO, is a tribute to one of the greatest delay units ever created - the TC 2290. It is a modern take on a classic sound, providing tone that harkens back to the industry defining, super musical unit it pays tribute to. The second TonePrint is FATY, a super fat sounding analog delay that begs for guitarists to dig in and do their worst. TonePrint three is aptly named DUCT and gives you a classic tape delay sound reminiscent of the revolutionary classic units that came out in the 60s. And, rounding out the Guitar Center TonePrints is MORF, a setting that is sure to turn heads with a tape delay that adds modulation for some truly twisted sounds.
“I was really excited to work with Barry again,” explains Tore Mogensen, Product Manager for guitar at TC Electronic, and continues: “I mean, he knocked it out of the park the first time we did just TonePrints with Guitar Center and he came up with some totally great sounds for reverb, chorus and delay. Already back then I thought we could maybe do a dedicated pedal where Barry’s great sense for tone could really shine. As a guitarist, I just don’t think things get much more ‘tone connoisseur’ than Barry. I mean, the man plays like a dream and buys pedals for a living! But you know how it goes, everyone’s busy and the music industry can be hectic, so we decided to wait until the time was just right. That time is now, and boy did we nail it!”
“I loved working with TC Electronic again” adds Guitar Center’s Barry Mitchell. “Historically, we have always had a great relationship, as TC Electronic products live and exude quality and tone. The TonePrint initiative is great and our customers love the pedals, the sounds they get, and all the artist custom tweaks they can download. We had these ideas for sounds that we thought guitarists would love’. We got access to the amazing TonePrint editor, which allowed us to dial in what we were hearing with unprecedented precision and we ended up with totally organic musical sounds - I had a great time creating these tones and working with the entire TC Electronic’s family."
