TailSpin Vibrato delivers a wealth of stunning vintage vibrato tones all served in a package so affordable that it’ll make your head spin. Its all-analog bucket brigade design brings everything from subtle organic wobbles to pitch-bendy warped vinyl tones and all the way to fast leslie-like sounds. These beautiful tones are housed in a compact and sturdy enclosure, ready to rock the road!

Vast World of Vibrato
Nothing beats the organic warm warble of a classic true pitch vibrato pedal. You can use it at slow speeds to bring life and depth to slow chord progressions ala. Steven Wilson or you can wind it up a bit for eerie Mastodon-approved melodies or energetic Lonnie Mack solos. Heck, max it and behold the faces in the crowd as they begin to look for the hidden B3 organ on stage.

Feel The Mojo
TailSpin Vibrato contains 100% vintage vibrato mojo put into play by the old-school bucket-brigade circuit design. This ensures that no matter where you set the dials, you’ll always end up with a vibrato tone that sounds natural and is highly usable across the musical spectrum.

Compact Coolness
TailSpin Vibrato doesn’t just pass the tone test, it also handles the pedalboard exam with ease. Built like a tank, yet very compact, has top-mounted I/Os AND a True Bypass design. So whether you’re a pedalboard minimalist or think bigger is better, TailSpin Vibrato will always fit perfectly into your pedal plans.

Take a closer look at the completely tweakable, extremely simple control layout. Two knobs and that’s it. TailSpin Vibrato couldn’t possibly be easier to use, all while containing a superb sonic potential.

Full Speed Ahead - This sets the speed of the vibrato. Go counter-clockwise for super-slow vibrating waves or max it for fast rotary-like tones.

We’re Going Under - This controls the intensity of the vibrato. Set it low for some subtle sway and movement or max it for extreme pitch-bendy madness.

  • All-analog bucket-brigade circuit
  • True bypass
  • Top-mounted I/O

    Comments about TC Electronic Tail Spin Vibrato Effect Pedal:

    The Tailspin Vibrato is one of 13 new TC Electronic pedals from a series they haphazardly named "Smorgasboard of Tones". These are Chinese-built exclusives with certain vendors, and pretty much just Guitar Center in the U.S.

    While my major obsession is drive pedals, I opted for the Tailspin because I don't have a vibrato effect anywhere in my collection. In fact, it's a bit of a niche effect - think of it kind of like a tremolo where the sound is being modulated like a sine wave, only affecting pitch instead of volume. It's almost like a blend between a tremolo and a chorus effect. It can do a subtle "warble" effect or some crazy pitch warping with the Rate and Depth controls.

    These new TC pedals are built very solidly and this is great value for the price. I will say that they are definitely larger and heavier than a BOSS or MXR pedal, which is an annoyance for pedalboard use and storage. But the top-mounted jacks help with that (though I'm actually not personally a fan of those for individual pedal use). The switch is soft press type (no click) and actually turns on after you release the depressed switch. It seems to work fine now, but who knows about long-term durability. I'm glad it doesn't have a the click switch used on most other TC pedals, though, since those feel pretty dodgy to me.

    Likely to try a few other pedals from this new line - the Tailspin is a simple, effective tool for a unique vibrato effect.

    Comments about TC Electronic Tail Spin Vibrato Effect Pedal:

    I just have two of the thirteen new effects pedals from the Smorgasbord series that TC Electronics just started offering in the US and I like both of them a lot! The Tailspin Vibrato has an excellent range of frequency modulation and speed. You should be able to find exactly what you're looking for. These pedals also have a very wide bandwidth, so in addition to providing the effect, they manage to do it without negatively impacting your tone settings. You don't have to touch anything but your effect settings. Awesome pedal and affordable, too! I highly recommend it.
