TC Electronic Releases Line of Mini Pedals

The line includes the Flashback Mini Delay, Shaker Mini Vibrato, Corona Mini Chorus and Vortex Mini Flanger.

Risskov, Denmark (May 13, 2014) -- TC Electronic announces its new line of Mini Pedals, which take all that you know and love about TC effects and pours it into a footprint too good to be true! The line includes the Flashback Mini Delay, Shaker Mini Vibrato, Corona Mini Chorus and Vortex Mini Flanger, rounding out TC Electronic’s entire range of TonePrint stompboxes in the mini pedal arena.

The new Mini Pedals are available in stores beginning June 1st in the EU, and in the end of June in the US for $99.99 suggested US retail/ 99€ EU SSP/ £85 UK SSP. The Flashback Mini Delay will be available for $119.99 suggested US retail/ 119 € EU SSP / £99 UK SSP.

Built around the same small enclosure which made pedals such as PolyTune Mini, Hall of Fame Mini Reverb, Spark Mini Booster and Ditto Looper instant smash hits, these new mini pedals are nothing less than a godsend for every pedalboard out there.

The new 3-knob UI gives you more possibilities for direct tone manipulation on the fly, but the real magic still lies in the amazing TonePrint technology. With TonePrint, you can upload tones created by some of the most influential and creative artists out there. TC Electronic has also sweetened the deal by giving you the option of creating your own signature sounds via the free TonePrint Editor. So in essence, these tiny pedals contain endless potential that well exceeds their diminutive size.

Of course, the new mini pedals feature the same true-bypass, analog-dry-through design and pristine sound quality that you’ve come to expect from TC Electronic. With TonePrint at the core of these pedals, they are truly huge where it matters and tiny where it counts!

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
