“Architecturally” create your own rig in seconds. You can easily achieve the most sought-after tube amp sounds, and entirely new ones as well. Choose amplifier type, modification and speaker cabinet/mic placement configurations. You can easily mix and match specific sound characteristics in ways that would otherwise be physically improbable, probably impractical and definitely not cost effective. The GT2 is a truckload of great amps in a single, simple pedal.
From bedroom to stadium, the Acoustic Fly Rig provides ‘round-the-clock ease and confidence for any gig, anywhere and everywhere you perform. SANSAMP The all-analog SansAmp is, of course, its center point. Sweepable, semi-parametric, active EQ controls provide professional grade tweakability for any situation. There’s a Notch Filter, sweepable from 70Hz to 350Hz, designed to diminish the sensitivity for feedback caused by the resonating, low frequencies of acoustic guitars. A Low Pass Filter, sweepable from 16kHz to 1.5kHz, rolls off undesirable frequencies and artifacts. BOOST Independent Boost function, up to approx 12dB, for solos. Includes a wide mid-range boost for improved clarity. COMP COMP, for compression, utilizes old school, all-analog, FET-based technology, which is inherently warmer, more transparent and musical. REVERB Dedicated Reverb function emulates the rich ambiance of open spaces, ranging from room to hall. DLA/CHR DLA emulates a warm sounding analog delay. It features Time and Repeats controls and dedicated Tap Tempo footswitch. CHR is a preset chorus based on pitch-shifting technology for a more natural, 12-string-style sound. TUNER Chromatic Tuner is within the EFX section. You simply hold down the TAP/TUNER footswitch to engage the Tuner, which simultaneously mutes the signal path. OTHER FEATURES Phase Flip switch flips the signal 180 degrees in phase to help combat feedback 1/4-inch 1megOhm input XLR output with ground lift 1/4-inch low impedance output Headphone button switches the 1/4” output into headphone mode Rugged, all-metal housing Metal footswitches and jacks Silent-switching, custom footswitch actuators Utilizes included 9V DC Universal Power Supply: Model #DC9.
For the pro on the go, the VT Bass DI covers a lot of ground in a small footprint. This multi-function, multi-application format features three different outputs. You can complement your current rig, record direct, drive power amps and go direct to the PA. Just throw it in your gig bag and you’re ready at a moment’s notice. DRIVE adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive, similar to when the output section of a tube amp is being pushed. CHARACTER sweeps through an entire range of tonal possibilities associated with Ampeg®-style amplifiers. In addition to modifying the frequency response, the Character control also influences the attack and drive characteristics.Therefore, you may need to adjust your gain and tone settings after tweaking the Character control. Settings below 12 o’clock will give you the ‘70s powerhouse,the SVT. Around 12 o’clock will introduce you to the studio staple, the flip top. Above 12 o’clock increases the gain and crunch for less polite, modern rock, indie bass sounds. Full up gives you distorted bass tones from Yes to Crimson to King’s X styles. MID, LOW, HIGH. Unlike passive controls that only cut, these active tone controls cut or boost ±12dB from unity gain (12 o’clock). Mid is 500 Hz. Low is 125 Hz. High is 3.2kHz. BLEND allows you to blend the direct instrument signal with SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry. In most cases, you will probably have this set at maximum (100% SansAmp). For certain applications, however, such as an ultra-transparent sound or for use with piezo pickup-equipped instruments, you may want to blend-in the direct signal to achieve your desired sound. Note: When Blend is at minimum,the SansAmpTubeAmplifier Emulation circuitry is bypassed. However,the Mid, Low, High and Level controls remain active. LEVEL adjusts the output level of both the 1/4” and XLR outputs.
We were hammered with requests for a bass version of the Fly Rig 5 since the day it was introduced. How could we not answer the call? We went a little crazy and stuffed everything we could into the Bass Fly Rig, except the kitchen sink, Rhode Island and a submarine.
Analog Reverb Emulator with Clean Boost and Trails (v2) Tech 21 brings a fresh perspective to the standard reverb pedal. By incorporating a clean Boost function, up to 9dB, your solos will jump out with greater dimension. The Boost RVB is designed with user-tweakable, “lo-fi” analog technology. By manipulating the controls, you can infuse degrees of warmth and life characteristic of vintage reverbs. The circuitry intentionally injects the inherent imperfections of vintage units, which is what makes them so seductive and nostalgic. A single, continuously-variable Time control provides a full sweep of size. The Boost RVB parameters are engineered so that you can explore and custom tailor such reverb styles as spring, plate and natural room/hall ambiance.
Sporting a new look for 2015 with all of the same functionality, Tech 21 brings a fresh perspective to the standard delay pedal. By incorporating a clean Boost function, up to 9dB, your solos will jump out with greater dimension. The Boost DLA is designed with user-tweakable, “lo-fi” analog technology. By manipulating the controls, you can infuse degrees of warmth and life characteristic of vintage delays. The circuitry intentionally injects the inherent imperfections of vintage units, which is what makes them so seductive and nostalgic. A single, continuously-variable Time control provides a full sweep, up to 1000 milliseconds, of delay. The Boost DLA parameters are engineered so that you can explore and custom tailor such delay styles as digital, vintage tape and bucket brigade.
Always thinking of our fat-stringed brethren, we had to make a 3-channel, programmable, rig-in-a-box for bassists who can’t get enough of a great thing. Like the TRI-A.C. for guitar, you get three hot tones right at your toetips. The all-analog circuitry features the same controls as its single channel predecessor: Drive, Bass, Treble, Presence, Blend and Level. Digital only in its programmability, you just tweak the knobs until you find a tone, double-tap on a footswitch, and it’s saved in that channel. It’s that simple. Three of your faves -- to go!
Much more than just a direct box, the SansAmp Bass Driver DI is capable of dialing up big vintage tube tones, bright modern slap sounds, gnarly distortions, and all in between. Three different outputs to drive power amps, recording desks, PA mixers, or simply enhance your current rig. Controls include Presence for definition and upper harmonic content; Blend to combine the proportion of direct signal and SansAmp circuitry; and active EQ specifically tuned for bass with 12dB of cut or boost. VERSION 2 With the popularity of 5- and 6-string basses going beyond fad status and becoming mainstream, we added a switch to adjust the bass frequency to extend into those lower registers. We also added a mid-range control and a switch to adjust its frequency. The core of the SansAmp Bass Driver and all of its tones remain true to its original design.
For bassists who like to switch it up on stage, the SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe is the ultimate live tool for the bass-hopping, preset-stomping player. The Deluxe is all about fast delivery of monster Tech 21 bass tones in the fray of a live performance. Dual inputs enable two instruments to be on-line and ready to go with a pop-free selector. You can program three custom tones for each input, or use all six for a single instrument. You can also program the FX loop to engage your favorite effect with a particular setting and the Deluxe will bring it every time that preset is selected. The fat, funky tones of the SansAmp Bass Driver series are legendary. With an all-analog signal path, two inputs, six presets, a programmable effect loop, and parallel/tuner out, the stage-optimized Deluxe is all that with cheese and pickles.
