Risskov, Denmark (February 1, 2012) -- Long-time TC guitar effects user John Petrucci has joined forces with TC to introduce The Dreamscape.

John Petrucci was one of the first artists to join TC’s TonePrint concept. In total, John created 5 personal TonePrints in early 2011 – two for Corona Chorus, two for Shaker Vibrato and one for the Vortex Flanger. John loved having access to all effect parameters so much that he instantly agreed to develop a signature pedal together with TC – one that was based on his own TonePrints.  And so The Dreamscape was created.

John wanted to gather all of his TonePrints into a single pedal even though his original TonePrints are for three different pedals in the series. To take this pedal over the top, John created a brand new TonePrint for Vortex Flanger taking the total amount of custom-tweaked tones up to six – 2 x chorus, 2 x flanger and 2 x Vibrato.

The Dreamscape has four knobs: Speed, Depth, FX Level and one that chooses between the six integrated signature tones and one additional TonePrint. Further, the pedal has a three-way switch for toggling between Bright, Normal and Dark, which is an overall tonal shaping feature chosen by Petrucci. Finally, The Dreamscape also contains all of the features included in other TonePrint pedals such as true bypass, one-screw-battery-access and a sturdy design made for life on the road. 

Features
• Six Signature Tones Tailored by John Petrucci
• One Brand New Flanger TonePrint
• Three Mind-blowing Modulation Effects in One Pedal: Chorus, Flanger and Vibrato
• Corona Chorus TonePrints Are Available as The Dreamscape TonePrints

The Dreamscape is available for $249

Here’s a story about the most interesting man in the world.

“The guitar is my first love, my partner in life. We grew up together and we’ll most likely die together.” —Thom Bresh

One of the best benefits of being a musician is that musicians know musicians, and musicians are the most interesting people you’ll ever meet. Albert Einstein, Charles Dickens, Georgia O’Keeffe, the Marx Brothers, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Juliette Lewis, Jack Black, and Zooey Deschanel are or were musicians, albeit not full-time.
