Echo Evolution

There's no denying that we truly love delay here at TC Electronic and with ProGuitarShop we've found a collaborator that shares our unparalleled passion for delay. This has resulted in two delay pedals, which in no time at all have become modern-day classics due to their painstaking recreations of vintage echo-machines of the past. Now we're bringing you the best features and sounds from the original Alter Ego and Alter Ego X4, combined in a new pedal which is sure to satisfy all of your vintage-vibed echo needs!


  • 9 exclusive Delay sounds, expertly crafted by TC Electronic and ProGuitarShop
  • A true celebration of the best of the best in tape, analog and digital delays
  • TonePrint Enabled - for a world of signature effects

Sound Repeats

With Alter Ego 2 you get 9 vintage delay sounds carefully reproduced by the echo experts at ProGuitarShop and TC Electronic. And trust us, these guys know echo tone and we know you'll agree once you hear it! You'll find everything from sweet saturated EchoPlex* repeats, the unique magnetic drum delays of the legendary Echorec*, an exclusive modulated take on TC's own 2290 delay unit to tons of other classic echo tones. Heck, if we didn't know any better, we would be sure that this pedal contained real moving parts.

Back To The Future

Alter Ego 2 has received an elegant graphical overhaul so it's not just your tone that receives a massive upgrade, but also the coolness-factor of your pedalboard. Combine that with stereo I/O, the amazing audio-tapping feature and the innovative TonePrint technology and you've got yourself a pedal that may sound old-aged but is practically taken straight from the space-age.

True to Tone

You love tone, so do we, and our design philosophy testifies to that. So whatever route you wanna go, we got your back. With optimized headroom, True Bypass or Buffered Bypass switch and Kill-Dry on/off, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. And, no matter if the pedal is on or off your precious dry sound is always passed through the pedal unharmed in all it's pure analog glory due to an Analog-Dry-Through.

Backstage Pass - All Access

With Alter Ego Vintage Echo V2 Delay, getting tones is a cinch. Dialing in sounds is quick and intuitive and it’s one of those pedals where you just can’t seem to get anything else but awesome sounds.

Subdivision Mini-Toggle

Allows you to select quarter notes, dotted eighths or a dual delay combination of both (of which “the Edge” would very much approve).


Controls the delay time, which, apart from the Slapback, can go up to 7 seconds.

FX Level

Determines how pronounced the effect is. From subtle ambience to total timewarp.


Set the number of repetitions and how much effect is fed back to the input - short and snappy or infinite soundscapes ... you decide!

Type Selector

Sets your delay type. Makes a mean panini. Only one of these is actually true.

Maximum you

TonePrint pedals offer both true- or buffered bypass. It simply means that no matter what your setup or situation, TC pedals give you optimal signal integrity so the 'you' in your playing shines through with unparalleled clarity and definition.

You'll find warm, tape-like repeats from the Echoplex and Deluxe Memory Man models, crunchy decays courtesy of the Copykat and swirling detuned ambience from the Echorec simulation, while settings such as 2290 Mod and Reverse Mod add a touch of psychedelia to proceedings. Add in the easy-to-use 40-second looper, and it's hard to complain about the feature set on offer here.

Tone Report
by Phillip Dodge

All in all, the Alter Ego is a great little delay pedal. It's not as tweak-able as some delay pedals, but that's not a bad thing. I personally loved that I could turn the model dial and within seconds have an excellent and authentic emulation of classic effects. It's easy to use and there isn't a bad sound in it.
