2 vibrato types
Speed, Depth, Rise-time and Level controls
Easy battery access
Vibrato is one of those 'hard to grasp but oh so important' parts of guitar playing. Just think where Yngwie Malmsteen, BB King or Stevie Ray Vaughan would be without their unique vibrato. It's what makes us reckognize a guitarist after 2 notes - vibrato is what makes playing come alive. And from a subtle warble to Leslie sounds, Shaker Vibrato does what it can to liven things up.

Pick Your Shake Flavor
Shaker Vibrato features 2 different types of settings: 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.
Expand Your Creativity
Vibrato is an effect with a wide range of applications, but it can be tough to figure out which those are if you don't get a range of sounds, voicings and expressions that knock you off your feet - and with Shaker Vibrato those surprises are always musical, never unpleasant. Featuring a set of controls and giving you control over the 'rise-time' of the effect, Shaker Vibrato vibes with your playing instantly.
Dippin' Toes To All-In
Shaker Vibrato allows you to decide whether you want to sue it as an 'on/off' effect or as a more subtle effect where it is active when you press down and cuts out as soon as you release. Both have a wide range of applications, so we advise you experiment with both.

Backstage Pass - All Access
Shaker Vibrato’s controls are aimed at the playful nature of the effect – they’re easy and responsive but make no mistake, you can sculpt some precise sounds here!
Rise–Time - An innovative new feature which allows you to control how long it takes before the vibrato rises to its peak. The allows for leslie-like ramp effects or fading into the vibrato smoothly for whammy–like sounds.
Speed - Determines the speed of the effect, or how fast things are shaking. Give gentle shivers down the spine or get a whole lotta shakin’ going on!
Mini Toggle - This little fella helps you set your pedal to ‘latch’ or ‘classic’ mode or enable TonePrints. Latch mode allows for very subtle effects without tap–dancing all night – put your foot on and the pedal is active, take it off and the pedal is bypassed immediately.
Depth - This controls how intense the effect is - a faint ring true to Hank Marvin or a modern undeniable rumble, Shaker Vibrato picks up on your vibes.
Tone - This determines how bright or dark the effect is by letting you play with high and low frequencies. Top tip: crank this knob clockwise and set the pedal to ‘latch mode’ for instant Leslie tones.
Maximum You - TonePrint pedals offer both true- or buffered bypass. It simply means that no matter what your setup or situation, TC pedals give you optimal signal integrity so the 'you' in your playing shines through with unparalleled clarity and definition.
"Delivering smooth undulating pitch fluctuation, the Shaker offers cool vibrato sounds and can do a pretty good rotary speaker emulation. There's plenty of variation available - the speed and depth knobs work as you'd expect, but the tone knob changes the effect's emphasis on high and low frequencies letting you really focus in on sounds that will sit just right with your tone. The latch function is brilliant for adding vibrato just where and when you want it. It's particularly effective on a sustained note or chord - a 'rise time' knob determining how long it takes for the vibrato to reach its specified depth to provide the full effect." - Guitarist Magazine.
"The TonePrints available for this effect are also really great - one of our particular favorites is the TonePrint by Dream Theater's John Petrucci, which adds a bit of feedback for a slight phase interaction an sounds rather lush. (...) TC deserves full marks for once again pushing the boundaries of what is possible with today's technology inside a small stand-alone effect pedal." - Guitar Buyer
