Add a Spot of British Flavour to Your Sound
The Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series British pedal brings you three classic British tones together in one stomp -- Bluesbreaker, Plexi, and '70s stack. Your character control lets you dial in the amp modeling you're looking for, and your level, mid, drive, low, and high controls give you even more options to shape your signal. This pedal also features a speaker emulation defeat switch for straight-up distortion pedal utilization. Get a ton of tone, boost, color, and all-around sonic exploitation with the sweet sounds this amazingly dynamic pedal has to offer.
Three Amps in One Pedal
This Tech21 pedal features a character control dial that allows you to seamlessly move between three different amp models -- Bluesbreaker, Plexi, and a '70s stack model sound. When you turn this control to the right, your axe's gain, bite, and mid range increase slightly, providing greater breakup and a harsher attack. Moving to the left will bring your gain and midrange down a little bit until you get a very warm and full-bodied clean tone. This incredibly dynamic control is what really makes this baby stand apart from other distortion effects -- it's a real amp-modeling pedal!
Six Controls For Powerful Dynamic Sound
Along with its character control, your Tech 21 SansAmp distortion pedal also features level, mid, drive, low, and high controls. Your level control dials in the decibels, and your drive control brings in more gain for a full and present all-British distortion. Your three-band EQ knobs provide up to +/-12 dB of boost or cut per band. Just a small turn from any of these controls will show you just wide of a range of sounds this pedal can help you achieve.
To Emulate or Not to Emulate
A final nice feature on your Tech 21 SansAmp distortion pedal is its speaker emulator defeat switch. Pushing this switch will kill all of your pedal's emulation effects. This switch will tend to bring a somewhat flat and dark character to your signal, but this setting will work well with wherever your amplifier's control dials are at. This switch lets you use this pedal in its most simple form for times when you want to use other effects or settings to color your signal.
