OUR PART # TC-SCF
The TC Electronic SCF, the most advanced effects pedal ever designed, has earned a reputation as one of the best sounding chorusâ€™ in the world. The ultra clean, smooth and clear tone of the effects allows you to maintain the original tone and characteristics of your instrument. Three different effects and extensive parameter control ensures that you easily can dial in the exact sound that suits your needs - from the ultimate clean chorus, heavy duty flanging, to extreme tremolo / vibrato effects.
We all know that digital force is the dominant force in sound reproduction e.g. CD, DAT and even low cost digital multitrack. They are affordable, sound great and offer enormous processing power.So why consider an analog chorus pedal? In some areas analog production with its smooth, even sound, actually out-performs digital. TC Electronic's SCF is the best sounding chorus pedal in the world and just as important; the best sounding guitar effects of any type available anywhere! The SCF's specs blow many digital boxes away for example signal-to-noise ratio of 100dB and frequency response that doesn't rob your sound of any of its hard earned character. On top of this, the SCF has a silkiness un-matched by digital units that turn your signal into little clumps of numbers, no matter how discreetly they do so.
The SCF is actually three stereo effects in one: chorus, pitch modulation, and flange. Selected by a central toggle switch, all modes share same operative controls. Speed selects sweep rates from 0.1 (one sweep every ten seconds) to 10 (ten sweeps per second), and can be used to create excellent tremolo effects (a la Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Couldn't Stand The Weather"). Width controls the depth of the effect, with a low setting producing that aforementioned subtle trem. Intensity acts differently for each of the SCF's three modes. When chorus is selected, Intensity controls the level of blend between the chorus and clean signal. In Flange mode, it controls the intensity of comb filter phasing - acting much as a feedback control would.
The SCF's solid constructed unit is powered by a regular AC power chord, so there's no adapter or battery to worry about. Other outstanding features include an onboard preamp/line driver, which allows the SCF to work in a whole range of applications and also helps reduce signal loss along long cables; an overload LED (even overloaded, it was hard to make this unit sound bad - none of that horrible ripping that is produced by overdriven digital boxes); and remote bypass, for taking the SCF off the floor. There's even an LED that shows the effect's status and blinks at the currently selected sweep rate. The SCF is easy to use, super clean, and possessing incredible sound.
