TC Electronic Introduces the Plethora X3 Pedal

TC Electronic Plethora X3 Pedal

TC Electronic has unveiled a new pedal in their Plethora series with the Plethora X3. The pedal carries all the same features of the X5 – including a flexible collection of effects – but pares it down to three slots instead of five. The added benefit is a smaller footprint on your pedalboard.

“Load any one of your favorite TC Electronic TonePrint effects in any one of the 3 pedal slots,” the company writes. “Then add up to 75 custom, swift-recall TonePrints to each effect and you’re good to go. Once you have buckled up and got your fingers flying, step up and MASH the footswitches for mind-bending expressiveness.”

Other features include an onboard tuner and a looper. Get the full scoop in the TC Electronic launch video:

The TC Electronic Plethora X3 is available now for $349.
