Just got one of these for under £30 (mint/used) and they're only £40 new right now!
Adds just the right amount of gain for a lightly overdriven bass grind with a natural feeling compression. The mid boost is great for punching through in a mix and presents some lovely harmonic overtones.
I'm late to the party on this as it's been out a few years.... but better late than never. This maybe one of those 'always on' pedals!
TC Electronic Polytune Mini.
Last time I used this, the footswitch gave way and disappeared into the casing. Have tried to repair this, but cannot make it switch on/off. As far as I’m aware, the tuner circuit is all fine. Sure someone can repair it, but this will not work out of the box!
The last of the 'back up amps to my back up amp' sale!
The GOOD - Works perfectly. Silly light and small. Comes with TC carry bag/satchel. EQ can be tweaked and edited/saved/stored but I have it sounding great in factory setting. Oh and it is RED!
The BAD - It is NOT immaculate, with a few dings in the aluminium casing and it has one of the rubber knobs missing (they aren't mega tight fit so I'd surprised if there wasn't a massive market for replacement knobs in the future). The carry bag is a bit frayed and tatty but does the job.
Not open to offers on this as it is the smallest of my back up amps and as such the easiest to store/keep.
