TC-Helicon Mic Mechanic 2 Vocal Pedal TC-Helicon has released the Mic Mechanic 2 compact vocal pedal, featuring echo, reverb, and correction controls. Reverb simulates a physical space, allowing the singer’s voice to fit into the music. Whether it’s something small like a room or large like a concert hall, Mic Mechanic 2’s vocally tuned reverb is designed to complement the voice and enhance the performance. Echo (formally known as delay) allows the user to add repeats of their vocals timed with the music. This effect helps vocals gel with the song and users can set the tempo via the footswitch. With transparent auto-chromatic pitch correction, the Mic Mechanic 2 nudges the vocal pitch to the nearest semitone. It is not meant to completely change the voice, but to give a little support when needed.

The AM 595’s design principle focuses on being a versatile and all-purpose stick suitable for various types of stylistic applications while ensuring the maximum bounce and balance throughout. The acorn tip is designed to accentuate the complex tonal frequency range inherent in both drums and cymbals. The AM 595 measures 16 in. in length with a diameter of .595 in.
