Deep Purple TonePrints

Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover joins bandmate Steve Morse in expanding TC Electronic's TonePrint collection.

Deep Purple TonePrints

Counting Steve Morse's previous creations, you can now download a total of five Deep Purple TonePrints, with two new ones from bassist Roger Glover.

These TonePrints are now available for download free of charge from TC Electronic.

Guitar wizard Steve Morse is best known as the founder of Dixie Dregs, but he has actually been the main guitarist of Deep Purple since 1994. Steve was the first Deep Purple member to be assimilated into the TonePrint collective, creating two TonePrints for the Hall of Fame Reverb pedal and one for the Flashback Delay and Looper pedal. Anyone who has seen him play knows that he can easily switch between rock, country, funk, jazz and classical - so his guitar sound has to be as versatile as his technique. This means that the Tone Prints he created must be able to accompany him as he seamlessly switches between styles.

Now another Deep Purple member joins TC Electronic's archive of artist created TonePrints. They caught up with Roger Glover in Germany and he cooperated to create two TonePrints for the Hall Of Fame Reverb pedal. First of which is aptly named Roger's Spare Room 1, inspired by Jaco's solo reverb-drenched sound. It mixes chorus and reverb that gives the sound a nice round "quack" with a soft attack. Like the sound from with which it took inspiration, this reverb effect is ideal for bass soloing.

The second Roger Glover TonePrint is called Roger's Fun at Home, it was designed to recreate the short echoes in a large hall. The sound is described as having a hall reverb that is not too bright, and it adds some nice swells to what you are playing. As the name implies, this TonePrint is designed to make playing and practicing at home a bit more surreal and enjoyable.

Morten Ehlers, TC Electronic’s Business Manager for Bass, comments: “Roger Glover is a true musician. He’s a legendary bass player, great record producer and obviously a great songwriter. But he’s very cool and down to earth and just really loves music and cool sounds - perfect for doing great TonePrints!”

GLOVER not Clover

Surely an artist of Roger Glover's stature deserves to have his name spelled right. First rule of journalism.

You are quite correct -

You are quite correct - please accept my apology for the mistake (I'm the editor).

The second rule is to acknowledge mistakes and correct them - thank you very much for helping us with this.
