Guyatone Adds TD-X Tube Echo to Flip Series

Guyatone Adds TD-X Tube Echo to Flip Series


June 29, 2004

New from Guyatone is the TD-X Tube Echo. Not only does this unit
mark a first for Guyatone as they move in a new direction of hybrid digital/analog
effect units, it also deserves landmark status as the first Guyatone unit
that was conceived and designed in conjunction with Godlyke, Inc., the North
American distributor.

The TD-X takes the company's MD-3 Micro Delay circuit and combines it with
a custom-designed filter array that allows the TD-X to emulate a vast variety
of vintage and modern delay sounds including BBD, tape, and digital. The key
to the TD-X's versatility are its two Simulator controls.

While most digital units emulate analog tones by using a simple high-frequency
roll off, the TD-X features a frequency boost/cut filtering system combined
with tube warmth and saturation.
