TC Electronic TonePrint Shaker Vibrato Pedal (b-stock)
The TC Electronic 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, TC Electronic had a couple of things in mind. They 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. They knew they wanted something that sounded natural, like adding vibrato to the human voice, but they also wanted a wide range of vibrato effects so you could, for example, make Leslie-like sounds at more extreme settings. TC wanted to put you firmly in control of your vibrato, so they 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.
But there is more to Shaker Vibrato than meets the eye. It's TonePrint, and it will rock your world. Via a simple USB-connection, TonePrint allows you to download custom tunings made by your favourite 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!
What is TonePrint? Let TC Electronic explain...
You see, we believe in moving the possibilities of guitar forward and boy, did we break the mould this time! We call this new feature TonePrint, and it will ROCK. YOUR. WORLD. With TonePrint, you get instant access to the core of the sounds of your favourite players, a tone transfusion of your favourite guitarists' essence straight into your pedal. A simple USB-connection allows you to directly connect with tones made by those that inspire you, all you do is pick and play.
TonePrint gives you instant access to tones that are custom-tweaked by your own guitar heroes! We have gathered a vast and ever expanding list that can only be described as the definitive who's who in guitar, and asked them to customise our new pedals with their signature sounds, the tones that made them famous. This allows you to directly interact with the sounds provided by the people that inspire you to play.
Getting a TonePrint is easy, fun and free. Just go to the TonePrint section on the TC website, locate the TonePrint you want to try and voila, your favourite artist just set your pedal for you. Whether it is the sound of your favourite song or a launchpad for your own stellar tone, a TonePrint maxes the star potential of your tone, the rest is up to you.
All the rockstars we approached were eager to sign on to this innovative project, and not because we waved a big bag of money at them. They unanimously agreed that TC Electronic gear inspired their sounds at one point and this was such a cool way to return the favour to their fans and maybe inspire the rockstar of tomorrow. Added to that, the TonePrint section of our site will constantly be updated with new tones, new artists and all kinds of bonus content.
Our artist's roster is expanding at a rocking rate, so TonePrints provide a huge range of styles and sounds, a guarantee to constant inspiration and years of fun. TonePrint is part them, part you, and all awesome!
Please note: These pedals are quite power-hungry, so we recommend you use an external power adaptor to save on batteries.
