  • 11 delay types including looper - expansive delay options from subtle repeat to total time-warp
  • Audio Tapping - set delay times by simply strumming your guitar
  • 6 seconds delay - all the delay time your playing could ever need ... and then some.

I'm a 30 year Rocker, and Guitar Gear Hoarder... As I get older I strive to get the vintage cleaner tones out of the Instruments I've acquired over the years.. over the past year I have switched from playing a solid state fender (with onboard effects) to a 81" Fender Pro Reverb Tube Combo, and Built a custom Pedalboard.. Added a bunch pedals I had laying around since the 90's.. an older TubeScreamer and some OLD Ibanez pedals (Delay and Octave) That being said'. this was an improvement from my last rig.. and tone was good, But some of the old pedals sucked up my Tone and BITE.. I was insearch of some TrueBypass pedals, so when they were off, it was like they were not even there... about 3 years ago our singer bought a TcHelicon Vocal unit from GC and I was amazed at how awesome it was... so I decided to check out there guitar pedals... I am Blown away at this point with this company.. everything Tc does is VERY Excellent.. This company was the best of the best back in the day when needing any Rack studio gear.. "OK" now about this PEDAL.. I really wanted the Tc ALTER EGO delay pedal but GC does not offer this pedal, so on a whim i picked up the Flashback.. I was not disappointed at all, The very first setting (EVERYTHING at NOON) was excellent.. at this point I did not have a Chorus Pedal, So I was using the "MOD"-ulated setting.. VeryVerySweet. So I had to run right down and Buy another, the Corona Chorus.. after using it for a few weeks I did the hardware update and downloaded the TonePrint app on my SmartPhone. (actually pretty easy). This is when I realized My SEARCH was over.. Just watch some of the Videos that Tore explains some of the pedals. you will want them all. TONE.... This is where this is the BEST choice you can Make. This pedal does NOT drain any tone, even when it is on. it simply adds the effects in with your tone.. TONEPRINT.. OMG this is the greatest thing since Fender introduced Reverb... Basically these people put a ton of effort in making the CLASSIC pedals you love. and with the smartphone app,, You can ZAP your pedal to any pedal or setting you could want,, I downloaded a few of my favorites on my phone and on stage I can change my pedals with a press of the button. Seriously like switching out your pedals in the middle of a set.. NOT a very good looper.. But the rest is Better than any other delay pedal out there..

The Flashback Delay is a very versatile delay pedal that will get you many different sounds and options. It is a really great pedal for sitting around and jamming with. However, it is not the greatest for live applications. For one thing, to change the settings, you have to bend down and turn the knobs instead of having different presets. Another problem is that there is no tap tempo. There is something kind of like tap tempo where you hold the button and then strum the tempo (it mutes your sound while you are doing this), but that restricts the player because you can not set the tempo while you are playing as you could with tap tempo. Also, if you want to change the tempo for a certain song, since you can't play and set tempo, you have to pause for a while before the song to set your tempo. A bit of a setback.

Why settle...?

Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

I compared this delay against the MXR Carbon copy. I found the CC by MXR to be too dark for my liking. While the delay options on the Flashback are subtly different, it is nice to have them (the analog setting could be darker). However, with the Toneprint availability and the Toneprint option, you can dial in a darker delay that very much models the CC! Best of both worlds. Plus you get a looper and hugely long delay time on the Flashback.

    Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Like tone and ability to down load but their warranty process is broken. You must submit registration online in 30 days but their online system is down. They use some other process. Ultimately they will replace broken units for $60. But would recommend for tone and hope you don't have problems. Plus need to be on a 250 mill 9 volt. Won't work on 100 mill.

            Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I am very happy with the Flashback delay. I find that most of the delay models are extremely useful though I generally stick with the tape echo, analog, and 2290 models.

            The knobs can be very sensitive so taking your time dialing it in will get the best results, specifically with the FX Level knob - You can easily go from subtle delay to overblown washed out delay.

            I appreciate the simplified design for a modeler, no screens.. just 4 knobs and a button. I suppose the toneprint feature can add complication but I have not used, or plan to use it.

            Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

            This is the best delay for the money out there period. I've had this pedal for a month now and anything I've thrown at it, it chewed up and spit back out without blinking an eye. It has a multitude of features and delay types. How TC managed to fit everything into it is a mystery to me. The only answer must be that it is bigger on the inside like a certain other blue box that will not be named. The dotted eight delay takes you into U2/the Edge territory. One cool thing I've found is that if you use the Modulated delay, turn the volume and feedback on the pedal up to 3 o'clock, the time signature at a dotted eight and quarter notes, put a distortion pedal with gain all the way up and do volume swells, your guitar will sound like an entire orchestra depending on your chord registers. Very good, go buy it now.

            Great pedal!...not 9v Battery Friendly.

            Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I dig this pedal, I'm keeping it. Sure there are cheaper Delays out there. But in my opinion, you get what you pay for, and the Flashback sounded WAY better to my ears, incredibly rich depth, I just get Lost in it. Great for gigs, amazingly portable for the tone quality it delivers! I can practice for hours, never getting bored. If you're looking to do Looping alot, SKIP this pedal and buy the Larger TC delay board. The looper is nice for practice, but not for someone more serious. Also, don't waste your money running 9v batteries, they won't last more then 15 minutes, just get a 9v wall adapter, lol.

            Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Pedal has good quality parts! Nice 1/4 inchers, good pots, and a solid metal case with a sweet easy access to the battery/dip switch area. You can switch this thing to buffer or be true bypass, I think all their pedals do this however. The looper function is okay to mess around with, but if you want looping you really need to get the ditto. This looping function is just for fun. The Delay is what this is all about and lemme tell ya WOW, it sounds very nice. This is basically a Delay modeling pedal, but it actually sounds decent. The tone print thing is amazing, just a great pedal here. Worth every penny. You will spend hours just messing around with it on its own. LOVE IT! The only downside is the tap tempo, you have to hold down the button, it mutes your guitar which is fine, but it takes about 1-1.5 seconds for the tapper to start... kind of annoying but oh well. Maybe they will fix it with the firmware updates!

            Not much to say other than Flashback Delay opened up a whole new approach to learning! What an inspiring electronic device. After hours of research and settling on the Flashback, I am VERY please with my choice.
