From basement to
In 1976, two brothers, Kim and John Rishøj, started building guitar pedals out of John’s basement. Pedals like the SCF Chorus and the line driver/ distortion proved so popular that Kim and John could simply not handle the massive amount of orders, so they decided to go big and officially founded TC Electronic. They experienced explosive growth and TC Electronic quickly became a major player in guitar effects, a position it holds to this day. The success of TC Electronic’s low noise guitar effect pedals like the SCF Chorus and the booster distortion allowed for the development of the 2290 and the 1210, which had a defin- ing role in shaping guitar tone as we know it today.

The TC 1210 Spatial Expander + Stereo Chorus
Flanger is the supreme modulation effect and was considered a revolution when it was launched in 1981. The
1210 is widely heralded as the holy grail of chorus, and has
been a mainstay for top session guitarists like Steve Lukather
and Michael Landau. If you have ears, you have heard the 1210
countless times on almost every song to come out in the 80s, 90s
and 00s. The 1210 is simply put a part of music as we know it today.
