Live and Breathe Tone
Hailing from Athens, Greece, Tsakalis AudioWorks endeavor to bring the sound that lives in their heads to life.
When founder Chris Tsakalis started out repairing gear for players in Athens, his first step into effects pedals was a new custom-built tube-driven overdrive that gathered the attention of the local music scene.
Only a few years later, and stocked with a wide range of effects to share with the world, he presented his Brand Tsakalis AudioWorks.
With their focus on hand-building and quality components their ethos of simple and easy-to-use pedals which provide the player with a host of different options without getting in the way of their creativity, has resulted in a deep and diverse range of internationally critically acclaimed pedals.
Drive, Distortion and Fuzz
The Tsakalis range includes versatile Boost, Overdrive, Fuzz and Distortion pedals that include such tone champions as the veritable “Marshall in a Box” ROOM #40, the appropriately named Six – six Boost, Overdrive and Distortion options in a small package with an easy-to-use interface.
Their Nerve MKII Dual Channel High-Gain distortion offers perfectly matched JFET stages with a 4-control standard American-style EQ, and the vintage-inspired Experience Fuzz Octave that revives the sounds of the 60’s and 70’s with a modern touch.
Cab Sim, Boost and Compression
However, this brand is not just about distortion and fuzz pedals. Tsakalis also offer the veritable cab sim and preamp monster – Multicab 4 that not only offers cabinet simulation but also preamps and power amp and microphone emulation with a multitude of settings and an interface that is as user-friendly as can be.
On top of that their Zipper MKII is a discrete and quiet optical compressor and the tiny Molecular Boost, a Buffer, Preamp, Booster, Volume Pedal with a versatile feature set.
Modulation and Filter
In terms of modulation, Tsakalis offers the Galactic – a Multi-Modulation Spaceship that offers 5 flavours of modulation in 6 blendable pairs for generatingeverything from 3D chorus to many other spacey and yet to be named soundscapes.
The juicy funkiness of the Phonikify Envelope Filter/Octaver revives the awesomeness of Funk and Soul music from the 60’s & 70’s with two filter types mixed with octave-up, down or both.
When it comes to Reverb and Delay, Tsakalis SoundWorks ethos of simple and easy-to-use pedals that don’t take up a lot of pedalboard real-estate culminates in the Ocean V2 – a triple reverb that provides a wide range of textures, from thick, endless hall reverb to symphonic shimmer and vintage spring reverb and the TILAY – a Tape and Analog Lo-Fi Echo with all the tape saturation, vintage warmth and smootheness you crave.
Chris Tsakalis, founder of Tsakalis AudioWorks commented, “As our brand has become more and more sought-after in the international market, the need for a solid partnership for the distribution of our products in Europe and the UK is clear.
