I've only just heard of these. Does anyone know if they operate at line level like their more upmarket pedals? My computer has the TC website coming up in Chinese and there doesn't seem to be much technical info elsewhere.

Cheers.

I use the Flashback, Corona, Vortex, and Ditto in the somewhat picky loop of my Mesa. They work fine at line level.

not sure, but word on the net is that most of them are basically behringer pedal designs.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

metalmingee Yeah,that's the well regarded stuff that they've been making for some time,I'm wanting to find out about the new cheapo range retailing at about 40 quid a pedal at Thomann.

Dave_Mc I read this too and it could be a good or bad thing, I suppose it depends which end of the spectrum these pedals are orientated towards. Having said that, I have Behringer Sonic Exciter which is a really nice bit of rack gear but I seem to remember my Behringer purple distortion pedal from 10 years ago being pretty awful.

Could be an interesting and controversial range,especially as they've issued 13 pedals.

My bad! I missed that announcement. I'm guessing some sort of OEM relationship since it's an entire line.

TCE is pretty cool. I have some of their older pedals and am a fan. As for the Behringer bit, IIRC TC was purchased by them a few years back so them reworking some of the Behringer stuff I guess would make sense. I mean, some of the Behringer stuff didn't really sound terrible but the ones I used were essentially cheap Boss clones and I bought them because I was broke. Now if TC is just making those pedals with a better housing and components I almost think it's kind of silly.

No worries at all. Thanks for your input. I'm really hoping that the budget price is just something to do with a little bit of say,less delay time and a tiny bit of compromise on the housing strength,paint job etc... than the tonal integrity and line level suitability of the New pedals.

oh yeah absolutely, it could be either good or bad. most of the behringer pedals (which i haven't tried) are based on well-regarded circuits, so if they've taken a known good circuit and upgraded the build quality while still keeping them reasonably cheap, then that's a good thing. But if it's just a behringer in a metal box for three times the price, then that's obviously less good...

yeah i think behringer bought them a while back, and i think some people were saying they hoped this didn't happen as a result
