TC Electronic MojoMojo Effects Pedal : Review

MojoMojo

The main characteristics

If we want to synthesize the character of the MojoMojo we can say that this good pedal delivers a crisp and clear Overdrive, a powerful bottom end, and gives more body, but without changing the basic characteristics of your guitar. It delivers an open sound with little compression.
The excellent quality of every component contributes to create a great Overdrive and the Voice switch changes the bass-response and mids character. This feature, the Voice switch, can be very useful to regulate the MojoMojo in the general mix of the instruments.

The increased voltage

The circuit works at an higher voltage than the usual, if we compare this pedal to similar devices, and this characteristic generates a very dynamic and open tone. Certainly, this is an important added value that exists, generally, only in professional products.

Controls

Drive, level and the equalization section: Bass and Treble. If you want a fatter sound regulate Drive at lower settings.

High quality components

It comes with quality components. For instance, the metal-shaft potentiometers are really a pleasure.

General opinion

An excellent Overdrive with all the necessary to be used in many different contexts. It is rather transparent, and without an excessive saturation. This problem sometimes exists in devices of this type. The equalization is effective and makes a very good job. The dynamics is remarkable, above all with a single-coil. The price, about 130 euros, is justified. If we consider the versatility, the overall quality of the electronics, and the excellent signal, the final result is good.

  • Flanger | Boss
    BF-3

    At the beginning 4 knobs and so many parameters can baffle, but after a while all is clear, and the confusion becomes versatility. The only problem is that this pedal boosts the signal level, and there isn't a solution.

  • RC-505
  • Loop | Boss
    RC-505

    The 5 tracks of each loop are equipped with indipendent controls and dedicated fader. Effects can be applied on each track and globally. Two knobs can be used to tweak the parameters. 85 rhythm patterns.

  • FL9
  • Flanger | Ibanez
    FL9

    The reissue of the '80s model. Ibanez says that it might even be better than the original pedal! In effect, the electronics is the same. At the beginning it can seem complicated, but the result is excellent. Warm, creamy and melodic.
