The TC Electronic BodyRez Acoustic Pickup Enhancer Guitar Effects Pedal reinvigorates the timbre of your acoustic guitar when using an under-saddle pickup. As you'd expect from the experts at TC Electronic, the BodyRez is an unfussy yet immaculately designed pedal that is built for the professional and the bedroom enthusiast alike.
Simplistic Control, Powerful Results
The unique beauty of an acoustic guitar sings for all to hear when you play acoustically. However, when you plug in and play through some piezo under-saddle pickups, the depth and warmth across the mid to low frequency range can drop out, giving greater emphasis to a bright, high-end twang. Some, but not all, acoustic guitar preamps feature EQ systems that will allow you to shape your tone accordingly, but this can still leave the timbre of your guitar sounding flat or lacking in that 'something'. This is where the BodyRez comes in to save the day.
The BodyRez utilises carefully tuned filters that are applied with very subtle compression, which counters the flattened character introduced by the pickup, rejuvenating your tone and bringing back its natural sparkle. The best part about it is that it couldn’t be easier to use. The single-knob design means that all you need to do is: connect your guitar to the pedal’s input; the output to the PA mixing desk, recorder, etc.; press down the footswitch; strum your guitar; and attenuate the Body control until you’re happy with your tone – simple! You’ll be blown away by the richness and depth that comes pouring back into your tone.
The BodyRez is equipped with a built-in feedback suppressor, which prevents any low end hum from overwhelming your tone. When you hear the tone start to become saturated by feedback, simply tap the switch and it will instantly suppress it. The pedal is also designed with true bypass technology, so that when it is not engaged, your original signal remains preserved in pristine condition.
As any musician or engineer will know, when it comes to changing guitars or switching cables, it is very easy to forget you’re plugged into a PA system and cause a deafening pop to ring out when you prematurely unplug a lead. The team at TC Electronic has you covered. Simply hold down the footswitch to engage the Mute control, and you can happily switch cables with causing damage to anyone’s equipment or hearing.
