TC Electronic The Dreamscape John Petrucci Signature Pedal
TC Electronic recently unveiled "The Dreamscape" John Petrucci Signature Pedal, a three in one modulation effects pedal tailored to the exacting specifications of John himself.
Guitar wizard John Petrucci was one of the first artists to create a TonePrint with TC Electronic. This time he is taking it to the next level by having a modulation pedal built to his tastes.
John Petrucci helped create 5 personal TonePrints in 2011 – two for Shaker Vibrato, two for Corona Chorus, and one for the Vortex Flanger. John is said to have enjoyed accessing all the effect parameters and easily agreed to develop a signature pedal together with TC, based on his own TonePrints. The result of this team work is The Dreamscape.
Since his Toneprints were on three different modulation effects pedal, TC had to combine all these three modulation effects into the Dreamscape. John also created a new Toneprint for the Vortex flanger to increase his toneprints to a total of 6. And all these TonePrints are included in the new Dreamscape pedal. It also has the same TonePrint technology of uploading or beaming patches to the pedal.
The Dreamscape has four control knobs: Depth, Speed, FX Level and a TonePrint selectort. Further, the pedal has a three-way switch for toggling between Bright, Normal and Dark, which is an overall tonal shaping feature as requested by Petrucci. Finally, The Dreamscape also contains all of the great features included in other TonePrint pedals such as true bypass, one-screw-battery-access and a sturdy design made for life on the road.
To further convince you, John Petrucci himself will be visiting three Guitar Center stores in Manhattan (March 30th), Central Chicago (March 31st) and San Francisco (April 1st), to personally introduce The Dreamscape. So aside from trying out a cool pedal, you get a chance to watch a real guitar master at work and maybe even have some photos. If you pre-order the Dreamscape pedal online, you can bring it with you to the said stores to have it signed by John.
The current retail price for the Dreamscape pedal is $249. For more information, you can visit TC Electronic.
