TC Electronic’s new pedal brings the classic sound of 80s style synthesizer modulation to your guitar.
NAMM 2019 is already bringing us a lot of exciting new music tech and instruments to look forward to from the biggest brands down to the niche-st indie makers. A new pedal from TC Electronics has caught our eye, and not just because of it’s beautiful retro synth look.
The June-60 is a chorus pedal that takes inspiration from Roland’s classic Juno-60 synth. The pedal uses an all-analogue bucket brigade circuit that has been fine-tuned for guitars to create “warm, pulsating ’80s-style modulation in two flavours”.
The pedal looks gorgeous with the bold colours of classic synths in grey, yellow and red with dark wooden panels on the side.The design is simple with two buttons for control. The first gives a slow moving, rich chorus and the second is a faster, wobblier chorus that works great on a rock tone. Combine both modes together and let the double sine curves battle it out in your tone.
Aside from the stomp pedal and the two buttons there is the option to switch between mono and stereo chorus so you can optimise the sound to exactly how you want the pulsing tones to fill the room. With it’s bucket brigade delay circuit the sound is an authentic recreation of the same analogue circuitry that the Juno-60 used to create it’s unique tone.
The June-60 pedal in a nutshell:
- Authentic recreation of the legendary synthesizer chorus from the ’80s
