Risskov, Denmark (April 17, 2013) -- TC Electronic is proud to announce it’s next completely free package of TonePrints, this time centered around jazz. This package, consisting of TonePrints by Lee Ritenour, Dean Brown and Grand Baton, is available free of charge at TC Electronic or through the free TonePrint app for iOS and Android now.
Lee Ritenour contributed two delay TonePrints, one with modulation and one without.The one without modulation, the Rit Ping-Pong Delay TonePrint, really came from the fact that Lee took a liking to our TonePrint pedals right off the bat - he loved how they keep his tone intact. For this stereo ping-pong delay TonePrint, Lee cut a bit off the highs and the lows, to keep things tight yet un-provocative, along with a nice ambient vibe. Whilst adding a bit of saturation for a nice warm and human voice type edge.
The idea for the Rit Ping-Pong Delay with Modulation was the same as Rit’s TonePrint without modulation: a nice stereo ping-pong delay that is warm and present, but not too 'in your face'. Lee wanted to add just a tiny little bit of modulation on the tail of the delay trails, which makes for a very subtle afterglow on an already beautiful sound. It adds just that hint of shimmer and life that is really pleasing to the ear.
The legendary Dean Brown also contributed a TonePrint, Dean's Retro Flashback. Dean loves the Flashback Delay and actually told us the one he has on his board is on almost permanently. Dean wanted some nice, natural tape-like compression that gives a great round sound. He went for an analog delay cutting the lows just a bit whilst cutting the highs a whole lot more, giving an easy-going, ambient vibe. Very Echoplex like, this TonePrint brings down the delays just a bit when you really dig in.
Completing the Jazz TonePrint package is a TonePrint pioneer: Grand Baton, who contributes with his Shimmer Delay TonePrint , a custom delay with a unique filtering that makes the delays brighter and brighter as they die out. Grand Baton also contributes with the fan favorite Grand Baton Flanger TonePrint – a musical and slow modulation which is pronounced but not overwhelming, perfect for strummed guitar parts.
Tore Mogensen, Product Manager for Guitar at TC Electronic adds: ”There’s no doubt in my mind that these TonePrints will make many guitarists very happy. They are great tones from legendary guitarists and as we actually have quite a large fan base in the jazz scene, I’m really happy to be able to provide these great sounds to them.”

Flare is a dual-function pedal with a tube-like booster and a 1970s-style ring modulator effect that can be played separately or together.
Flare’s ring modulator is based on the iconic tone of the original Dan Armstrong Green Ringer. This vintage classic was made famous by Frank Zappa who loved the unusual modulations created by generating a harmonic octave over notes. Messiah’s version offers two control knobs: a “Sparkle” tone attenuator and output Level control. Its taupe-gold body, purple and green knobs and stick-figure rock ’n’ roller holding up a flame convey an appropriately rockin’70s vibe.
In a unique twist, Messiah’s Flare pairs the ringer with a warm tube-style boost instead of a fuzz. Flare feeds the booster into the ringer for an extra punch, while preserving the Green Ringerspirit. The ringer side also turns any fuzz into an octafuzz, and it has the ability to quiet signal background noise fed through it.
The booster side features a single Boost knob to control the MOSFET circuit, making it very tube-amp-friendly with a warm, organic boost and gain of up to 32dB.
The pedal is a distinct improvement over the 1970s pedal that inspired it. “Most ringer pedals don’t track well,” Tom Hejda, owner of Messiah Guitars. “The player can’t rely on repeating the same effect even with the most consistently played notes. We carefully matched the components, so our ringer follows your every move, producing that slightly dirty octave you expect on demand.”
Messiah developed this vintage octave pedal with flexible features so that people who love that messy, dirty Zappa-esque sound can get there with ease but there’s also something for those who have not fallen in love with fuzz or the Green Ringer alone. Flare offers an array of sonic options while retaining simplicity in the controls.
Each Flair Pedal Includes:
- 3 control knobs: Boost, Sparkle, and Level
- Two effects – Ring Modulator and Boost – can be used together or separately
- Space-saving top side jacks
- Durable, cast aluminum alloy 125B enclosure with fun artwork
- Easy to see, illuminated True-bypass foot switch
- Standard 9V pedal power input

This feathery little guy is a joy to play because of its incredibly quick response to your right hand - much faster and more expressive than your typical auto-wah pedal.
If it looks like a duck, acts like a duck, and QUACKS like a duck, then it must be a duck. That's how we came up with the name for our new envelope filter. This feathery little guy is a joy to play because of its incredibly quick response to your right hand - much faster and more expressive than your typical auto-wah pedal. Trevor explains how this is possible in the launch video, as well as gives a demo on Le Canard’s operation.
The attack control determines how quickly the filter responds to the envelope, and the decay sets how quickly the filter releases afterward. The range controls which frequency spectrum the filter does its magic on. Add to this relay-based full-bypass switching with failsafe, and you've got one crazy little quacky beast. It is so expressive that you'll want to give up on your rocker-wah forever.
The MayFly Le Canard envelope filter features:
- Super fast responding envelope follower. Touch it and it jumps!
- Range control to dial in the character of the filter
- Attack control to control how fast the filter moves on that first touch
- Release control to control how slowly the filter slides back to baseline
- Full bypass using relays with Fail SafeTM (automatically switches to bypass if the pedal loses power)
- Cast aluminum enclosure with groovy artwork
- MSRP $149 USD ($199 CAD)

All MayFly pedals are hand-made in Canada.
