TC Electronic presents two TonePrints from guitarist Paul Gilbert.
Earlier this year, TC Electronic launched five new guitar pedals with on-board USB ports which allow guitarists to upload ‘TonePrints’ to their pedals. Paul Gilbert (Racer X, Mr. Big) created two personal TonePrints – one for the Corona Chorus and another for the Hall of Fame Reverb.
Here is what TC Electronic had to say:
“Paul wanted to create a sweet, shimmering chorus sound that would be equally suited for clean and dirty sounds, and the ‘tri-chorus’ mode of the Corona Chorus pedal was perfect for that purpose. Paul Gilbert also got to pick a name for the TonePrint and he came up with ‘Triple Caramel Apple’ as the warbly and gooey feel of the sweet chorus reminded him of one of his favorite desserts: caramel. The ‘triple’ refers to the ‘tri-chorus’, of course, and the he felt that the clean sound would represent the ‘apple’.”
“When creating his TonePrint for the Hall of Fame Reverb pedal, Paul Gilbert wanted to get a nice tail of space. A reverb tail of comfort that adds that certain something to any guitar tone – even when sustaining the notes.”
