Tech 21 SansAmp Classic Pedal
The design of the SansAmp Classic inspired many of our products but there’s
still only one original. Of all the SansAmp pedal models, this is the most
sophisticated. Its unconventional design not only keeps the unit compact, it
is key to the wide range of sounds you can achieve. Still made almost entirely
by hand, the main module contains a bank of eight Character switches, which
adjust the fine and subtle nuances of tonality, harmonics and dynamics. A three-position
Input switch gives you a choice of pre-amp styles: Lead (Marshall®-style),
Normal (Mesa Boogie®-style), and Bass (Fender®-style) which is excellent for
rhythm as well as bass guitar.
The SansAmp Classic’s knob controls shape pre-amp contours, power amp contours,
volume and final tone.
SansAmp Classic was specifically engineered with a flat output to provide maximum
flexibility and control with external EQ.
There are countless (we know, we’ve tried) combinations and permutations for
you to explore.
