A shimmy and a shake, the TC Electronic Shaker Vibrato is definitely nothing to shake a stick at! In fact - we reckon it might be one of the coolest little vibrato pedals we've ever seen!
With detailed control over the style of your vibrato, you can create everything from a very subtle shimmery chorus-effect to a full on stuttering wobble. You can even delay the amount of time before the effect kicks in, or only have it kick in when you hold down the switch (latch mode) so you can simulate an accurate hand vibrato and use your 'vibe' for cool, sudden vibrato effects. For those that love their vibrato, shake your wallet out and gather the pennies to put towards a TC Shaker pedal. You won't regret it!
TC Electronic TonePrint iPhone/Android app
TC Electronic have announced a TonePrint iPhone App that allows users to switch TonePrint by choosing the TonePrint in question from a library in-app and then transfer that information to the pedal in a revolutionary way: by holding the iPhone up to your guitar pickups the app can send the right magnetic pulse safetly through your pickups down your guitar cable to your Tone Print enabled pedal and changes the settings! TC Electronic have put together this short video to show you how it's done and how it could revolutionise the way you use your TonePrint enabled pedals
Time to shake things up with this awesome vibrato! This beauty features the all-new TonePrint technology, giving you instant access to custom pedal tweaks made by world famous guitarists as well as all the good vibes you could ever need!
Shaker Vibrato features two types of vibrato: a classic true pitch vibrato and 'latch mode' where the effect is only active when you press and hold the switch. This allows for subtle vibrato and faux-whammy bar effects without you having to tap dance all night. Of course, Shaker Vibrato has a true bypass design and features Speed, Depth, Tone and Rise Time controls. Finally, this pedal sports an easy-access battery hatch, the highest-grade components and a small footprint.
When designing Shaker Vibrato, we had a couple of things in mind. We wanted the pedal to be a natural part of your playing. You shouldn't have to plan vibrato, it's an effect you add on the fly and as a natural extension of your sonic expressions. We knew we wanted something that sounded natural, like adding vibrato to the human voice, but we also wanted a wide range of vibrato effects so you could for example make Leslie-like sounds at more extreme settings. We wanted to put you firmly in control of your vibrato, so we devised a set of controls that put you squarely in vibrato-land. The Rise Time knob sets the timing of the effect, or how long it takes for the effect to kick in after you engage the pedal, the Speed knob sets the rate of vibrato, while the Depth Control knob determines how intense the vibrato will sound. All in all, this well-rounded vibrato pedal makes for an all around good vibe and that's exactly what we have delivered here.
But there is more to Shaker Vibrato than meets the eye. We call it TonePrint, and it will rock your world. Via a simple USB-connection, TonePrint allows you to download custom tunings made by your favorite guitarists straight into your pedal, easy, free and fast. A vast and ever-expanding roster of the finest guitarists alive are working with us to give you their custom TonePrint settings, so forget emulation, let's talk collaboration!
