The TC Electronic MojoMojo is a part of TC Electronics analog line. Its defining feature is that it has an active bass and treble EQ, which means that you can both cut and boost treble and bass frequencies.

This is a really powerful tone sculpting tool, and is also a huge bonus if you’re looking for a really specific tone (like Eric Clapton’s “Woman” tone).

A bonus of this pedal is that it also comes with a “voice” switch, which allows you to either cut the low-end or boost it. It’s a great way to quickly change the tone of the pedal if you’re switching between different guitars, especially if you’re switching back and forth between humbucker and single-coil instruments.

Features:

  • Controls: Drive, Level, Bass, Treble, Voice
  • Analog
  • True Bypass
  • 9-Volt Adapter / Battery
  • Used by: Guthrie Govan, Paul Gilbert, Richard Kruspe

Pros
The market response to this pedal is generally positive, with most owners pointing to its warm overdriven tone as its best trait. There are many reports of it sounding great as a standalone dirt pedal, but there are also plenty of experienced users who use this pedal as a supplement to their already overdriven tone. Paul Gilbert among many others appreciates its enhanced low-end response.

Cons
On the flipside, there are some who feel that there's just too much bass frequency, which to their ears makes it sound muddy..

Overall
If virtuosos like Paul Gilbert approve of this pedal, then it's highly probably that you'll end up liking it.
