TC Electronic has introduced Dark Matter Distortion and MojoMojo Overdrive, two hard-punching guitar pedals that take overdrive and distortion to whole new levels.

TC Electronic Dark Matter Distortion

Dark Matter Distortion is all about that powerful, super-musical roar of an early plexi – a sound that will satisfy even the pickiest players.

From cleans with an attitude and warm, bluesy tones to a crunch with grit for days and fully saturated lead sounds full of harmonics and overtones, it’s all there in spades and instantly available by riding the guitar’s volume knob.

An all-analog circuit, dual-band tone controls, level and drive knobs and a voicing switch to tweak the bass response ensure plenty of gain to suit any kind of musical style while maintaining an extremely open and clear sound that never gets muddy. All Dark Matter Distortion does is add degrees of distortion without affecting the fundamental tone.

TC Electronic MojoMojo

MojoMojo Overdrive will breathe life, magic and that certain something into any sound.

Guitarists everywhere are always looking for that little extra push over the cliff, a touch of extra bite, body and tone. MojoMojo Overdrive will add that flash of perfection, providing a crisp and clear overdrive with a rock-solid bottom end.

The aim was to create a pedal that sounds like an amp, having a very open character and little compression. The pedal should be alive, have an attitude and pick up on playing subtleties in a dynamic way. Also, the ideal was not just any old amp. MojoMojo Overdrive needed to offer that sweet, glassy and purely musical cranked tweed sound – the magic, spine-shivering feeling of an amplifier working hard and delivering pure valve tone. Quite simply, MojoMojo Overdrive is like adding another channel to the amp, and it will sound like it always belonged there.
