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!

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
