- Enhances Acoustic Guitar Tone on Stage
- Simple One-Knob Interface
- Phase Control Mitigates Low-End Problems
- Built-In Feedback Suppression
- On-Board Muting Capabilities
Intended to restore natural resonance when used in conjunction with an undersaddle piezo pickup on acoustic guitar, the BodyRez by TC Electronic is a simple, yet powerful single-knob pedal. The one provided "Body" knob allows you to add a combination of subtle compression and pre-configured filters, all toward the goal of restoring natural, resonant, and full-bodied acoustic guitar tone on stage when dealing with often unfriendly PA systems. The BodyRez also works effectively when used with acoustic soundboard transducers and soundhole pickups.
But there's more to this pedal than its one control knob suggests: holding down the knob, you can mute your signal, making plugging and unplugging your guitar a silent endeavour—a welcome experience for both the crowd and the front-of-house engineer behind the board. Also, using a combination of unplugging the unit and holding down its footswitch, you can engage Phase Control mode and flip the phase of your signal with the tap of your foot, thus eliminating low-end feedback, or indeed, any unwanted low end in conjunction with other signals bouncing around the stage. Furthermore, a mini-USB port allows you to perform any firmware updates that might come down the pike.
