TC Electronic Michael Paget TonePrints
Michael ‘Padge’ Paget, lead guitarist of metal sensation Bullet for My Valentine, creates personal ‘Sunny Day’ and ‘Tears’ TonePrints.
Here is what TC Electronic had to say:
"At first Michael set out to make an extreme tone for TC’s Vortex Flanger pedal, but once the creative process started, inspiration pointed him in a different direction. Rather than going to extremes, Michael ended up creating a subtle and slow-ocean-breeze-on-a-sunny-day kind of tone. As always TC lets the TonePrint artists name their own TonePrints, and I this case, Michael called it ‘Sunny Day’.
For the Flashback Delay pedal, Michael decided to go for an analog delay with a bit of chorus on the repeated notes – a tone he decided to name ‘Tears’.
Michael ‘Padge’ Paget is the lead guitarist of the Welsh heavy metal band Bullet for my Valentine.
Michael’s Sunny Day TonePrint for Vortex Flanger is now available as a free download on TC Electronic’s website or as part of the free TonePrint App for iPhone.
Finally, TC Electronic gives away a Flashback Delay and a Vortex Flanger – both signed by Michael ‘Padge’ Paget. The winner will be drawn 2nd December 2011. To take part in the competition, connect with TC on Facebook.

- Fender Pawn Shop '51, '72 & Mustang Review In the USA, pawn shops will exchange money for anything having more or less value, either a watch or a hi-fi system or the ukulele your grandpa brought home from his holidays in Hawaii back in '53. These pawn shops are the modern version of Ali Baba's cave. They are packed with all sorts of things — especially musical instruments, like guitars. You'll find more or less famous brands, as well as all kinds of instruments repaired with spare parts by their former owners. Fender imagined a product range with this pawn shop spirit in mind. It includes instruments made up of parts from different products in Fender's catalog from the 50's, 60's, 70's and even later, e.g. for the Pawn Shop Fender '51.
