Wanting to streamline and simplify his gear for new projects, Geddy Lee partnered with Tech 21 to design a signature rack-mount SansAmp, the GED-2112. This challenging collaboration involved distilling a boatload of equipment into a single rackspace. Stepping up to yet another challenge, Tech 21 further distilled the rackmount into a super-compact, portable pedal format. The SansAmp YYZ offers Geddy’s core sound and the versatility for many different styles.
Features include all-analog SansAmp technology to record directly and enhance previously recorded tracks. For live performances, the SansAmp YYZ can drive a power amp and speakers, augment an existing amplifier set-up, or run directly into the mixer of a PA system. A Mix control blends the ratio of high-end studio clean and dirty bass tube amp tones. The Tight button adds definition to notes in cleaner settings and make distorted tones snappier. Other features include a Drive control, active 3-band EQ and Master Volume. Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional DC power supply.
