Now you can get that same sound with today's reliability and ease of use, and in a tiny little footprint with the TC Electronic Alter Ego V2. Inside you'll find TonePrints of some of the absolute standards in vintage delays: such as the Electro-Harmonix Deluxe MemoryMan, the BOSS DM-2, the Roland Space Echo, and much more!

TC should write a book on how to cram so many useful features into such a tiny easy to use pedal. Everything from tap tempo and stereo ins and outs, to switchable true bypass or buffer performance, and so much more. There truly is very little within the realm of vintage delay that you can't accomplish with the Alter Ego V2. Need to tap in a dotted-eighth pattern on a gig, but maybe you're not a great tap dancer? Not a problem at all. The V2 even offers TC's switch for subdivided rhythms. Just select the one you want and tap out quarter notes. Couldn't be easier!
There's no denying that we truly love delay here at TC Electronic and with ProGuitarShop we've found a collaborator that shares our unparalleled passion for delay. This has resulted in two delay pedals, which in no time at all have become modern-day classics due to their painstaking recreations of vintage echo-machines of the past. Now we're bringing you the best features and sounds from the original Alter Ego and Alter Ego X4, combined in a new pedal which is sure to satisfy all of your vintage-vibed echo needs!
With Alter Ego 2 you get 9 vintage delay sounds carefully reproduced by the echo experts at ProGuitarShop and TC Electronic. And trust us, these guys know echo tone and we know you'll agree once you hear it! You'll find everything from sweet saturated EchoPlex* repeats, the unique magnetic drum delays of the legendary Echorec*, an exclusive modulated take on TC's own 2290 delay unit to tons of other classic echo tones. Heck, if we didn't know any better, we would be sure that this pedal contained real moving parts.
Alter Ego 2 has received an elegant graphical overhaul so it's not just your tone that receives a massive upgrade, but also the coolness-factor of your pedalboard. Combine that with stereo I/O, the amazing audio-tapping feature and the innovative TonePrint technology and you've got yourself a pedal that may sound old-aged but is practically taken straight from the space-age.
TonePrint, signature versions of delays made by music's finest (from rock royalty, to YOU via our TonePrint Editor) allows you to cram as many delay types into this little miracle as your heart desires.

You love tone, so do we, and our design philosophy testifies to that. So whatever route you wanna go, we got your back. With optimized headroom, True Bypass or Buffered Bypass switch and Kill-Dry on/off, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. And, no matter if the pedal is on or off your precious dry sound is always passed through the pedal unharmed in all it's pure analog glory due to an Analog-Dry-Through.
