TC Electronics Gauss Tape Echo Pedal
Gauss Tape Echo Pedal
The Gauss pedal from TC Electronics is designed to re-create the classic sound of tape echo machines from the past. It features built-in modulation, self-oscillation and authentic wow and flutter. A faithful reproduction of the legendary warm fat tones acheived by the timeless tape echo machines of yesteryear.
Echoes of the Past
The Gauss features a highly responsive and easy to use 3-knob interface with control over delay Time, Sustain and Volume. Our custom-designed, cutting-edge tape algorithm lets you create powerful subsonic pitch dives and self-oscillating spirals of psychedelia by simply manipulating the knobs in real time. An onboard Mod-switch lets you go clean, or add subtly natural and warm modulation to your echoes.
Vintage Tone, Modern Tech
Just as any good delay pedal, the Gauss pedal gives your tone a sense of space and substance, by stretching it out a little bit, or a lot! It also fattens up the sound by adding a distinct sense of “more”. But it also gives you the sought-after timbre of the original tape echo machines complete with wow and flutter effects, and authentic bass drop-off on the repeats. The pedal easily recreates any style echo, from the warm and organic tape delay of your favorite rock classics, to old-school ‘50s rockabilly slap-back.

Great!By: Stephen on 24 October 2019I picked up the TC Electronic Gauss Tape Echo to use with my Korg Volca Modular Synth and together they are making some real magic. The delay has an option to add a mod which gives a very subtle effect of tape degradation over long delay times. Manipulating the speed of the delay gives some really nice and warped sounds. I would absolutely recommend this pedal.
