The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Versatile Distortion Types

The Torcido Modular can be used to produce a range of distortion tones such as gentle, warm overdrives to extreme hi gains. Loaded with large controls and patch cable connections the Torcido offers independent control over the distortion amount, tone, tube warmth, wet/dry signal, low-end boost and signal bypass. Both the distortion amount and tone parameters have input level controls for adjusting the modulation range when controlled from an external source.

Connections & Compatibility

Two inputs and two outputs make Torcido a stereo-capable, 24bit/96kHz audio interface for Eurorack systems and the built-in AIRA Link USB compatibility gives it single-cable, plug and play connectivity with the MX-1 Mix Performer.

Customizable Sub-Modules

While it sounds great out of the box, you can fully customize Torcido's internal signal path by re-patching its array of virtual sub-modules via a custom application that works on Mac and PC as well as iOS and Android devices. Sub-modules are re-patched through a simple and intuitive drag and drop interface that even lets you choose which parameters are assigned to the high-resolution "GRF" knobs. You can reprogram Torcido in real-time via USB connection or save and recall patches with a simple audio signal. You can even share patches with other Torcido users.
