I've been looking for a smart harmonizer for some years. Firstly I wanted the Boss PS6 but I also needed a pedal to virtually change my tuning, so I ended buying a Whammy DT and thinking that I could use the minor/Major 3rd mode to do some harmonies. Well, I couldn't, moving the pedal each note to harmonize a phrase was not a very intuitive way of playing and, besides, having the harmony in front of distortion didn't sound that good to me.

I came back to my Boss PS6 pursue, but I tried it twice on a store and couldn't like it. And then it happen... I found the quintessence randomly in Thomann's catalog and I couldn't believe what I read and heard in some demos.

I never tried the high end harmonizers, but it is hard to believe that they can track better than this one. Soundwise it does a convincing imitation of a second guitarist, except if the harmony is an octave up, for some reason it sounds a little artificial to me. I prefer using this pedal in the FX loop, it sounds better with distortion than in front of the amp. With mash and the editor I believe that this pedal can do really amazing things, making a smart harmonizer even mor flexible. Unfortunately the TonePrint app isn't very compatible with Voiceover to do some advanced configurations so I couldn't try it.

To summarize: this pedal doesn't replace having another guitarist, or recording two different guitars, or even harmonizing using a delay pedal, but for an instant harmony partner it can't be beaten, the tracking is flawless (except when playing more than one note at the time), the mix setting really helps to make it as prominent or discreet as needed and the possibilities are endless! I really like the fact that, if using an harmony below the original note, it can be fooled to harmonize a harmonic minor passage!

Amazing sound Tc unbeaten quality
George gou , 24.06.2020
I mostly use the given product when I am in rehearsal or live with my band Felony Case. I mostly compose melodies with 3rd and 5th harmonies so this pedal does an amazing job in this case. You have to know a little of music theory to use it easily. I cannot find any cons in that pedal but only pros . Amazing quality amazing price

Unbeatable for the price!
-Gbass04-, 07.05.2020
You can do so much with this pedal its great!

the tracking is really good, using on upright with a piezo no problem!

There are lots of possibilities, especially if you start using the editor! For example you can slightly delay the harmonies to great effect on arpeggios or riffs!


The sound is good and stable!

For the price you can't beat it, its got the Tc electronics quality, its sounds really good with great tracking and its stereo!
