TC Electronic is a Danish company, founded in 1976 by two musician brothers, Kim and John Rishøj. TC Electronic had varying success with products for nearly a decade. Their stereo chorus/flanger guitar pedal helped put the bran don the map. However, when they released their first 19″ rack effects unit, the TC Electronic TC-2290 delay, it cemented their place in history. Every guitarist and every studio in the mid 1980s had a TC Electronic TC-2290, guitar players in particular loved the thing, and for good reason; it was a delay like no other. Today they still command big dollars on the used market.
TC Electronic on the back of the success of the TC-2290, went on to develop a huge range of professional audio products, including a significant range of digital effects processors. Products such as the TC Electronic M5000 designed as an effects mainframe, was very powerful and highly successful, as too was the TC Electronic Reverb 4000 digital reverb. In 2015 TC Electronic was purchased by Music Tribe, better known to most as Behringer, joining with other brands gobbled up by the music giant such as Tannoy, Auratone and Klark Teknik.
