TonePrint

Big Grass TonePrint by Guitar Center

This toneprint emulates the classic TC Electronic 2290 delay but in a more 'guitar-friendly' way, with a shorter decay, but still with the 2290's roundness and clarity to it and can still be used with an overdrive or distortion. A very versatile effect.

About

Doing TonePrints for Guitar Center together has been something Tore and Barry have been talking about doing since winter Namm 2011. Tore from TC heard Barry play at NAMM and thought: Wow, this guy can really play! So that’s how the whole idea about Barry coming over to TC’s headquarters in Denmark and make TonePrints came about.

Tore: So what’s your background with the guitar?

Barry: I’ve been playing guitar since I was a kid and I worked for line6 for 10 years. So I have sort of an extended background with products and playing, and you know, I just love pedals.

Tore: I think we’re going to have a lot of fun making toneprints. Do you have any idea what you want to do?

Barry: I think we should work on the Flashback Delay, Corona Chorus, Hall of Fame Reverb and the Shaker Vibrato.

Tore: Ok we have the Flashback delay hooked up and hopefully we can come up with something that you like. What do you typically go for tonewise in a delay?

Barry: You know I actually used to own a TC Electronic 2290. I had a 16 space shock-mountable rack with a bunch of stuff. I’d like to mix up a sound that I used to use with that, so why don’t we start there?

Tore: Alright let’s start with the 2290 which is kind of a digital sound, not any old school coloring thing. The way the 2290 is set up here is very pristine. What you put in, is what comes out, which is great for certain things but maybe not for everything. I think one of the obvious things here is, that if you use this with a clean sound it’s typically really good, but if you use it with overdrive or distortion, it’s just too pristine, you can notice it just goes on and on.

After some tweaking we got a great sound. So now I load your setting. It’s a totally different sound really, but still within the 2290 range of sounds. And it still gives a sort of a round tone.

Tore: So this wraps up our TonePrint session. It’s been a pleasure having you over here doing this.

Barry: It’s been great, I’ve had a lot of fun doing these TonePrints. It really shows you how flexible these pedals are. You can really get any tone that you can hear in your head out. And it was great working on this project with you.
