At Sweetwater, delay is a food group. It’s broken down into two essential categories: analog and digital; each nourishes your guitar or keyboard rig with unique sonic benefits. Some of us were around when digital delays were new; they were expensive, glitchy, and limited to short delay times. Thankfully, that is no longer the case. Enter The Prophet. TC Electronic — the renowned Danish company long associated with sonic excellence — designed The Prophet studio-grade digital delay to deliver all the pristine delay tones you could ever possibly want in a rugged, attractive pedal housing that stands up to the most rigorous touring schedules. And it’s delightfully affordable.
Sounds incredible, and easy to use
In 1985, TC Electronic wrote the book on studio-quality digital delay with the iconic TC 2290 rack unit, and the pro audio world has never looked back. Driven by TC’s award-winning electronic algorithm, The Prophet carries on the tradition in the modern era, serving up immaculate delays with no added colorations. Incredibly versatile and fun to use, The Prophet’s 3-position range switch lets you instantly set your maximum delay time (200, 500, or 1300ms), allowing you to instantaneously jump from vintage-style slapback to arpeggio-friendly rhythmic delays — all the way up to luxuriously long delays for those soaring, epic solos. For fine-tuning, the easy-to-use control layout is further augmented with Time, Repeat, and wet/dry Mix controls.
Versatility for any genre
With The Prophet, it’s quick and easy to thicken up rhythm parts or deploy soundscapes drenched in shimmering, cascading ambience. This pedal’s impressive vintage/modern versatility makes it ideal for just about any type of music, from country and roots rock to jazz fusion to progressive metal — and beyond. The sonic moods you can conjure with it are perfect for contemporary film, TV, and game scoring. Quite simply, no gig bag should be without this value-packed digital delay pedal.
Tour-tough for the long haul
Given The Prophet’s extremely alluring price point, you might assume corners were cut somewhere — but this is TC Electronic we’re talking about. Accordingly, The Prophet is built tour-tough for the long haul with a rugged all-metal chassis. It’s fitted with dedicated input and output jacks and features True Bypass circuitry, so it’s both roadworthy and pedalboard friendly. You can power it with a 9V battery, or use TC’s convenient Powerplug 9V adapter.
