The TXC-2 produces a clear original sound effect with an overtone; additionally, it can be made clearer effect sound by the bright control. The players can enjoy the sound of the humbucking pickup with the overtone and can compensate distorting the high tone which happens when some effecs were connected.
What is exciter?
It is not quite right if you think the TXC Exciter simply changes a tone quality or makes a sound bright. It is the effect device that produces a clear and steady sound by adding harmonics to the original sound.
For example, the TXC has made it possible to get clear the faded sound which often happens with the sound of the humbucking pickup without changing the tone and also made it possible to get relieved the single-coil sound which has a tendency to get faint.
Furthermore, the TXC surely functions as a pre-amplifier for electric-acoustic guitar, bass, etc., and as a buffer amplifier. Lets try.
