Packing untold expression by way of a 4-mode pitch engine and whammy-style Mash switch, the TC Electronic Brainwaves stereo pitch shifter/harmonizer pedal is your ticket to Hendrician octave effects, Scholzian harmony leads, and Morello-ish pitch bends — all in a single-pedal format. From detuned stereo doubling to multi-octave landscapes, the Brainwaves simplifies any number of single-guitar stage needs. A pressure-sensitive Mash expression switch unleashes pedal-steel pitch bends to devastating dive-bombs at a moment’s notice. And thanks to its TonePrint technology, the TC Electronic Brainwaves pitch pedal will always manage to find a place on any picky pedalist’s board.

TC Electronic Brainwaves Pitch Shifter Stompbox at a Glance:

    Four pitch effects in one

    The Brainwaves’ 4-mode pitch engine unlocks untold expression for world building and part sweetening:

    • Octaves — Classic fuzz octaves to OC-type tri-octave spreads can be achieved using the Brainwaves’ dual Voice controls.
    • Pitch shifting — Chords and melodies can be offset by up to two octaves for on-the-spot transposition to synth-register subsonic bass.
    • Harmonies — A fast-tracking harmonizer equips the Brainwaves pedal for auto power chords to CHON-flavored parallel harmonies.
    • Doubling/chorus effects — Using the Brainwaves as a doubler effect unlocks subtler shades for chorusing and double-tracking.

    Dual voices with Mix control

    Dialing in the right voice blend — power chords, choral triads, tri-octave leads, and even doubling effects — is possible using the Brainwaves’ dual independent Voice controls and Mix knob.

    Programmable Mash switch

    Unlock even greater expression with the Brainwaves’ onboard Mash switch. This pressure-sensitive expression switch can be tailored for pedal-steel full steps, octave-up whammy bends, and gnarly, deep 2-octave dives. The Mash switch’s function is programmable via the free TC TonePrint app.

    TonePrint equipped

    With TC’s free TonePrint app, you can beam artist presets wirelessly to the Brainwaves pedal and exact total control over any number of effect parameters via USB: Mash function, filtering, intervals, and more. Presets can then be saved and recalled via three dedicated TonePrint knob positions for instant gratification.

    Selectable true/buffered bypass switching

    Configurable bypass switching is just another reason why the TC Electronic Brainwaves is aces in our book. Whether you’re looking for analog dry-through true bypass transparency or tone preservation through long cable runs, the Brainwaves from Music Experience is equipped to suit any player’s preference.

    What TC Electronic Says...

    With its mind-bending range and kaleidoscopic pitch effects, the studio-grade BRAINWAVES PITCH SHIFTER is the perfect fusion of brains and brawn. This pink-clad pitch professor masters a variety of polyphonic effects including whammy and detune, plus a bunch of others – thanks to the dedicated TonePrint app. The award-winning MASH footswitch packs expression pedal performance into a pedalboard-friendly size.

    Pitch Polymath

    Pitch-shifting mode expands your sound by adding up to two extra voices and letting you decide whether these voices go above or below the original signal. Just imagine – the solo from “Owner of a Lonely Heart” never sounded so huge. And since BRAINWAVES is polyphonic, you can use it on your standard-tuned guitar for a wide range of rock-solid sharp or flat tunings – without detuning the actual instrument.

    Polyphonic Pitch Syndrome (PPS)

    With separate voices pitched in either direction, the polyphonic algorithm lets you easily process pitch-shifted chords, riffs, and furious flurries of single-notes. Since each voice is adjustable from unison to two octaves up or down (and anything in between), BRAINWAVES has more range than an interstellar battle cruiser. You can quickly create custom pitch settings via the free TonePrint app to find or expand your own pitch personality.

    Atomic Pink

    Whammy mode packs a powerful fistful of sonic punch. With 2 individually programmable voices, you can instantly go from nice and sweet, to a 2-octave, dive bomb explosion – just by MASHing the footswitch..

    Clean & Sweet, or Brash & Sassy

    BRAINWAVES also nails the squeaky clean, watery ‘80s tones we all know and love. Or slap on some dirt and dial up a shallow detune for the secret thickening agent from Van Halen’s post-1984 tone. MASH down the footswitch for an extra dose of instant detune goodness; the Mix knob lets you blend in just the right amount of effect, keeping your sound balanced – even at extreme settings!

    MASH - Heart of Innovation

    The BRAINWAVES PITCH SHIFTER features groundbreaking new technology that brings a wide range of creative expression to the party, controlled solely by how much pressure you apply to the depressed footswitch. Years in the making, and only available in select TC Electronic products, this clever innovation elevates the common footswitch well above rather mundane duties, such as “On” and “Off”. More importantly – MASH elevates your performance to the next level.
