Risskov, Denmark (March 25, 2013) -- Rock’n’Roll comes home to TC Electronic with the addition of Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell to the TonePrint artist roster. Phil created three TonePrints that infuse the Motörhead spirit into both rhythm - and lead sounds. Phil’s TonePrints for delay, vibrato and chorus are available to guitarists immediately and completely free of charge at http://www.tcelectronic.com/phil-campbell, or through our free TonePrint app for iOS and Android.

In addition to this, TC Electronic will be giving away Motörhead merch and a Flashback X4 signed by Phil Campbell. This competition is available worldwide, and can be entered by liking the TC Electronic Facebook page at www.facebook.com/tcelectronic. This competition ends April 15th.

Phil’s TonePrints are guaranteed to spice up tones with some old school undiluted rock’n’roll. His Flashback Delay TonePrint, called Bichon Frissé is a relatively short delay, which is a sound Phil uses on leads. In his words: "It's not too long, not too short - it's just right!". It’s great for classic rock solos that need a bit of air and vibe to them while remaining tight.

Phil’s TonePrint for Shaker Vibrato, called Roger's Bitch is a fast vibrato that harkens back to a Hendrix-type feel. This effect lets your playing shine through, but you will definitely not be in doubt whether it's on or not - in true Motörhead style, this one goes all in!

And Phil’s TonePrint for Corona Chorus called Fairy King is defined by a swirl that stops just shy of ‘fast’ with a shimmer that is nice and wide, and a sweet edge that works great with dirty sounds.

Tore Mogensen, Business Manager for Guitar at TC Electronic, adds: “What can I say? Things do not get more down’n’dirty rock than Motörhead. I’d be lying if I said these sounds work in a jazz context, but they have a very nice vintage feel with a bit of edge and tons of attitude - you simply gotta try them!”

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

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.
