What's GuitCon, Precious?

In early October, a new guitar conference happened in Markneukirchen, Germany - the aptly named GuitCon.

A hand-picked crowd of the top guitar YouTubers along with a few selected guitar vendors in a small secluded area with nothing to do except shoot videos with each other, geek out on gear, and jam out next to the open bar.

Naturally, we didn't want to miss out on all the fun, so we sent in our bearded beacon of hope, Tore aka. "Pedal Jesus" to represent TC Electronic at the gathering.

As with any decent symposium, copious amounts of alcohol were consumed and somewhere along the way, Tore managed to persuade almost all the GuitCon attendees to sit down with him and make their own TonePrints.

In fact, we had so much fun that in order to warm up for next year's event, we've dedicated this page to all things GuitCon.

Veritable guitar guru and YouTube royalty, The Tone King certainly did not disappoint when tasked with creating his first ever TonePrints with us at last year's GuitCon. The resulting trio of tones, whilst undoubtedly leaning towards hard rock and metal styles, are designed to give any rocking guitar tone an instant lift, with three very subtle yet effective TonePrints for Sub 'N' Up, Flashback 2 Delay, and Hall Of Fame 2 Reverb.

Decidedly understated and fresh out of the "less is more" school of thought, these three represent the bare bones of what a good rock tone looks and sounds like: an atmospheric delay for huge solos and ripping leads, a subtle amp-style reverb for a more full-bodied tone and lastly, a non-nonsense, always-on octaver for beefing up chords and riffs alike. Go check 'em out!
