Simply Totally Delaycious
Flashback Delay. The sounds, the vibe, TonePrints, the entire package - it was a smash hit that rocked the world. But at TC, we're more about moving things forward and listening to the feedback from the guitar community. And so, when wishes for things like presets and tap-tempo started rolling in, we listened. And boy, did we knock it out of the park.
- 16 delay types
- Three presets
- Tap Tempo
Delay Done Right
Think of your favorite delay sounds and chances are it's a TC sound. Our delays are the industry standard, and our 2290 Dynamic Digital Delay is one of the most coveted pieces of gear out there today. We know and love delay, and have made sure Flashback X4 delivers the legendary TC quality at every turn. From the awesome digital 2290 sounds to beautiful analog tape echoes and more exotic vibes of a reverse delay, Flashback X4 delivers every delay sound under the sun - past, present and future.
The Delay Guitarists Deserve
Flashback X4 is so much more than the sum of four Flashback pedals. Sure, we do what we do to pay the bills, but at the core, we do this for the love of guitar. Our guitar team is dedicated to contributing to the guitar community because we are part of it! So, when feedback from Flashback Delay users started pouring in, we listened.
So many guitarists out there wanted presets, and the ability to switch between delay sounds instantly. Using Flashback's amazing sounds but switching between flavors made tons of sense to us, and so Flashback X4 caters to that wish perfectly with three presets that can be as different and varied as you need them to be.
Creativity In Your Own Tempo
The tap tempo feature was a no-brainer as that is already a fan favorite with some of our other delay pedals. You can easily set delay times or sync up with for example a drummer. Match delays to your guitar rhythms or solo ideas and diversify your playing with different tempos.

The Flashback X4 is an excellent sounding delay by any measure. And it’s home to an absolute wealth of features—including more delay voices than can be covered in the space of this review.Check out the full review by Premier Guitar
The combination of three different, instantly selectable delays plus tap tempo has proved to be an extremely practical configuration for any delay pedal, and the X4 carries on that tradition while adding something new. It's a very easy pedal to set up and use, and very reasonably pricedCheck out the full review by Guitarist
Superb sounds, flexibility, ease of use and expanded I/O options make this a very attractive and pro-level delay pedal that is affordable for all but the most budget conscious of players. TC is leading the way once again. I recommend you check one out as soon as you can!Check out the full review by iGuitar
The FlashBack X4 is a ton of fun. It sounds great whether using it as a looper or as a delay. The ability to download custom TonePrint delays from star players is really cool and then beaming them from your iPhone through your guitar pickups to the Flashback X4 is nothing less than geeky greatness.Check out the full review by Macworld/Tech Hive
With so many cool artists and effects only a few seconds away, you can really explore the sonic frontier to your heart’s delight. I plugged this into both my digital and tube amps and the sound was clean and full. There was almost no noise or distortion or attenuation of signal.Check out the full review by Technology Tell
This unit is nothing less than state-of-the-art. The sounds are of legendary TC quality, the TonePrints are great and it offers tons of handy features like switching between true- and buffer bypass. Besides all that: when you are on stage and you need a looper, you simply have to check out X4.
Now, it will not be easy to find such a complete, simple, compact and good sounding delay… Competitors should be developing a counter-attack by now!
The TC Electronic X4 Delay is extremely simple to use and sounds brilliant.Check out the full review by GuitarNoize
Despite the simple layout and friendly user interface, X4 produces some serious sounds. There is simply nothing left to wish for in the types of delays found here and the default sounds simply sound great. All this makes Flashback X4 a serious contender for pros and hobbyists alike, regardless of style or musical orientation.
I plugged the Flashback X4 into the effects loop of my Marshall DSL50, which the pedal handled with ease thanks to its monstrous headroom. Cycling through the various modes revealed a few standouts: Space is great for Devin Townsend-style ambience; Reverse is killer for psychedelic mindstorms (turn the Feedback control all the way down for just the backwards sound); 2290 is a very pure, ‘honest’ repeat; and the Munky TonePrint, which stalks your guitar with a big greasy modulated echo. But all of the sounds are useful and musical.Check out the full review by iHeart Guitar
One thing I’ve found is that the Flashback X4 isn’t just about delays, it’s about the flexibility to create sounds and tones with delays. I have yet to find a pedal that sounds as good as the Flashback X4 and allows me to do so much. The possibilities of what you can do with the Flashback X4 are virtually limitless.Check out the full review by The Loop
