TC Electronic Unveils the BodyRez Acoustic Pickup Enhancer

TC Electronic Unveils the BodyRez Acoustic Pickup Enhancer

An acoustic pickup enhancer that enhances the natural tone and feel of acoustic guitars.

Nashville, TN (July 8, 2015) -- TC Electronic announces BodyRez, an acoustic pickup enhancer for acoustic guitars with under-saddle pickups.

A common problem for acoustic guitarists is that once they plug their acoustic instruments into a PA, their beautiful and natural acoustic tone is suddenly turned into a super sensitive and flat-sounding, quacky mess. BodyRez is designed to fix that problem.

Through a vast amount of pre-configured filters and the use of subtle compression, BodyRez restores the natural tone and feel of acoustic instruments with just a turn of a single knob. Now acoustic players around the world can finally feel that they're playing their own guitar on stage and not some poor amplified imitation.

In addition, BodyRez has a built-in phase-reversal feature which helps destroy low-end feedback and a mute function for noiseless removal of cables when switching guitars on stage.

All of these great features have been distilled into an ultra-compact and easy to use true-bypass stompbox that'll fit into any rig. Getting studio-quality acoustic tones has never been easier!

Features:

  • Studio-quality acoustic guitar tone
  • Restores natural playing feel
  • Built-in feedback suppression
  • Mute function
  • Ultra-compact design
  • True Bypass
  • 9V region-specific power supply included

With last months release of PolyTune Clip, TC Electronic showed that they don't just make gear for those electrified guitar moments and now with BodyRez, they've finally made a pedal fully dedicated to the acoustic guitar players out there. These are indeed exciting times for anybody who cares about great acoustic tone!

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
