12 Days Of PedalsAndEffects, Day 7: TC Electronics Shaker Vibrato
Years ago, when I was in Racer X, every bassist I knew at the time owned the TC Electronics SCF Stereo Chorus Flanger. It revolutionized chorus pedals for bassists and guitarists back then, and they continue to do so today. Whether it’s with this particular pedal (which they still make) or the numerous other pedals they release, TC Electronics are leaders in innovation and product design. Their Shaker Vibrato is right up there with the SCF Stereo Chorus Flanger.
A few months ago, some technicians from TC Electronics came to my house and helped me create a Tone Print for their amazing Shaker Vibrato pedal. They filmed me going through this wild stompbox, explaining the fantastic pitch shifting this pedal does; then they walked me through the making of my own setting, the Vato Vibrato, that you can download for this pedal! This is one, progressive pedal design and I am proud to be a part of their vision. So proud, in fact, that I did a video of the Shaker Vibrato here on PedalsAndEffects:
Here is what TC Electronics has to say about their pedal:
Shaker Vibrato features two types of vibrato: a classic true pitch vibrato and ‘latch mode’ where the effect is only active when you press and hold the switch. This allows for subtle vibrato and faux-whammy bar effects without you having to tap dance all night. Of course, Shaker Vibrato has a true bypass design and features Speed, Depth, Tone and Rise Time controls. Finally, this pedal sports an easy-access battery hatch, the highest-grade components and a small footprint.
