TC Electronic and Guitar Center Release Arena Reverb

Arena Reverb features all of the sounds from the Hall Of Fame reverb pedal along with four added exclusive TonePrints

Risskov, Denmark (October 26, 2012) -- 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 Arena Reverb, a compact delay pedal that features four TonePrints exclusively tweaked by Barry Mitchell - Guitar Center’s Director of Merchandise and an accomplished guitarist. Arena reverb is available exclusively through Guitar Center and Musicians Friend, and is available now.

Arena Reverb features all of the sounds from TC Electronic’s runaway success Hall Of Fame reverb pedal along with four added exclusive TonePrints that were meticulously customized by Guitar Centers in-house tone connoisseur, Barry Mitchell.

The first TonePrint is called Royal and is reminiscent of classic church and hall reverbs with an extra touch of class. Parliament is a classic Hall-type reverb with a nice long tail. Passage is Barry’s take on a room reverb, which focuses on natural vibes. Rounding out the custom tones is Season, a classic spring reverb that adds some real character to tones.

“I love Barry’s sounds, but I had to think a bit about it when we talked about doing a reverb pedal,” smiles Tore Mogensen, TC Electronic’s Product Manager for Guitar. “We’re TC Electronic - I don’t think many people will disagree our reverbs are amongst the best out there. So I was wondering what value Barry could add in that sense. But when I heard his take on our reverbs, I was immediately convinced. It’s like one plus one no longer equals two, but something entirely new - he really nailed these tones and I cannot wait for guitarists to get their hands on them!”

Barry Mitchell, Guitar Center’s Director of Merchandise continues: “I’ve been using TC Electronic reverbs since the beginning of my career as a guitarist, I just don’t think reverbs get better than these. So to put my experience and heart into the sounds that I’ve been using for countless gigs and sessions and to add the experience of the thousands of stories we hear every day in Guitar center from guitarists looking for a particular sounds was fantastic. Arena is very dear to my heart especially since we got such a diverse range of tones out of a little compact box and we made sure these tones are able to fulfill virtually every reverb wish.”
