New TC Electronic Mini Pedals
TC Electronic introduces four new Mini Pedals, the Flashback Mini Delay, Shaker Mini Vibrato, Corona Mini Chorus and Vortex Mini Flanger.

These pedals carry all the features of the original TonePrint pedals, only this time they are miniaturized to fit inside compact metal boxes. This means you get the same effects with less pedalboard space requirements.
TC Electronic utilized the same small enclosure that worked for their other mini pedals, and I have to say that I'm impressed at how ridiculously compact the pedals are! A set of TC Electronic Mini Pedals is probably easier to bring to gigs than the average rack or floorboard guitar processors!
These new pedals add to the other Mini pedals that they offer, which include the PolyTune Mini, Hall of Fame Mini Reverb, Spark Mini Booster and Ditto Looper which has been featured in the Guitar Loop Pedals Ultimate Guide.
Because of space limitation, TC Electronic reduced the knobs for all the new Mini pedals to just three. As expected some real-time control is compromised, but Mini pedals are loved for being convenient and straightforward to use so the simpler interface may actually be a good thing.
Making up for the lack of control is TC Electronic's TonePrint technology, the same one found on their regular sized pedals. It will let you change the sound of your pedal to your preferred settings on the fly, giving the seemingly basic looking Mini pedals the same sonic flexibility as the regular sized version.
The company says, "With TonePrint, you can upload tones created by some of the most influential and creative artists out there. TC Electronic has also sweetened the deal by giving you the option of creating your own signature sounds via the free TonePrint Editor. So in essence, these tiny pedals contain endless potential that well exceeds their diminutive size...With TonePrint at the core of these pedals, they are truly huge where it matters and tiny where it counts! "
Other standard features include true-bypass and analog-dry-through design. Check out the video demos for each pedal below:
The SRP for the Flashback Mini Delay is $119.99. The Shaker Mini Vibrato, Corona Mini Chorus and Vortex Mini Flanger all share the same price tag of $99.99. The Mini Pedals are scheduled for availability in the US at end of June. Visit TC Electronic for the complete details on each pedal.
