TonePrint Enabled - Signature Bass Effects
Bass TonePrints are free, custom-tuned effects, provided by your favorite bass players! TonePrints give you access to an effect as…
it is used by the artist - so you can tap directly into the TC tones used by the best bass players in the world.
Oh, this being the 21st century and all, TC made a TonePrint App which allows you to beam TonePrints from your phone to your TonePrint-enabled pedal or amp. Easy, fast and totally free of charge!
Effect TypesYou can load and swap effect types on your BH-and BG-Series bass amps via USB or the TonePrint App for smartphones. Once you load an effect of your choice to the amp, you can use the white TonePrint knob to adjust the wet/dry balance - more or less effect so to speak.
OctaverYou will find that the Sub 'n' Up Octaver is one of the most flexible octavers you'll ever come across. It can take you up an octave, or down an octave, keep it clean, or add some dirt. And it tracks like no other octaver you have ever tried - all the way down to the low B-string!
SpectraCompSpectraComp is the same multi-band compressor that you'll find in the Blacksmith. In essence, you get a "compressor per string" that is not fooled by the impact of the lower strings only, which is a known problem when using single-band compressors for bass.
Bass DriveBass Drive will give you the same convincing tube-like character that the TubeTone feature of e.g. RH750 and the Blacksmith is so famous for. On top of that, it can also get downright dirty and add drive, distortion or fuzz for more heavy duties.
ChorusThe Chorus effect is based on our legendary Stereo Chorus Flanger - aka SCF - that set new standards for chorus greatness decades ago and is still going strong. Now, it has been tailored with painstaking attention to detail for one specific purpose: Bass!
FlangerThe Flanger effect builds on the Vortex Flanger pedal that has amazed and inspired bass players all over the world ever since its release in 2010.
VibratoThe Vibrato effect is similar to the Vibrato Shaker pedal. It may not be the most common effect for bass players, but many have found it great for experimenting with different styles and creative ideas.
