TC Electronic was founded by two musician brothers, Kim and John
Rishøj. Their SCF, "Stereo Chorus + Pitch Modulator & Flanger",
became a classic for its quality and technical advancement.
After the initial success of their guitar effect pedals development was
started on 19" rack mounted processors including the TC2290 delay.
Released in 1985, it was far ahead of the competition in sound quality,
delay time (up to 32 sec) and modulation features and thus remained a
studio, live sound and pro guitarist workhorse standard for decades.
TC Electronic formed the current TC Group in 2002 after acquiring TGI plc. TGI consisted of Tannoy, GLL Goodman, Lab.Gruppen and Martin Audio.
Martin Audio was sold quickly after the merger and Goodman Loudspeakers
was closed. TC Works based in Germany (software development) used to be
part of the TC Group but was reintegrated with TC Electronic in 2005.
The current TC Group is a holding company of five individual brand companies consisting of Tannoy, (speakers and studio monitors), Lab.Gruppen (amplifiers), TC Electronic, TC-Helicon (harmonisers
and vocal processors) and TC|Applied Technologies (digital-audio
semiconductor development) and the sales-companies TC
Group|International, TC Group|Americas, TC Group|Japan, TC Group|China,
and TC Group|Middle East.
TC Electronic also co-develop products with Dynaudio Acoustics (studio monitors) and their European sales arm TC Group|International distributes Blue Microphones outside of the US.
