Risskov, Denmark (December 13, 2012) – TC Electronic is excited to announce a free package of TonePrints geared towards bassists. This package, called ‘Soul In The Pocket’ is comprised of TonePrints customized by some of the hottest session- and touring bassists in the industry and focuses on super high sound quality combined with effects that are ultra-useful. Soul In The Pocket is available now and can be downloaded free of charge at: www.tcelectronic.com/soul-in-the-pocket or through the free TonePrint app for iOS and Android.

Soul In The Pocket holds a wide range of TonePrints that will excel in any situation. Rihanna MD Eric Smith contributes with a cool Vibrato TonePrint called Wetwipe, a fast vibrato with a nasty LFO waveform that adds tons of grit and The Tickler, a flange TonePrint with a cool and bubbly sound. This effect 'cuts' at the start of notes and comes out of the flange sweep towards the top of your sound, which gives a really nice blooming effect.

Andrew Levy, bass legend for the brand new heavies, contributes his Staircase Flange TonePrint, a winding flange with a great balance between speed and depth and his Basement Bash delay TonePrint, a nice tape delay that helps notes ‘pop’.

Session legend and Chaka Khan bassist Melvin Lee Davis shares his Clean Flange TonePrint, which is a powerful and clear tape flange, as well as the Melvin Lee Davis Chorus TonePrint, an effect that really supports and enhances what you’re playing.

And finally, Jay Leno’s trusted bass player through the years and session giant Derrick Lee Murdock adds three signature TonePrints: Glass1, a super-tight delay where the repeats seem to almost overlap, His Royal Phatness, a modulated and beefy vibrato TonePrint and finally Mizone, a pronounced and modulated flange which quickly became his favorite sound.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
