TC Electronic Teams up with Motörhead's Phil Campbell
Risskov, Denmark (March 25, 2013) -- Rock’n’Roll comes home to TC Electronic with 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 http://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!”
