New Gear: Geddy Lee YYZ Shape-shifter Signature SansAmp
Geddy Lee YYZ Shape-shifter Signature SansAmp…
Responding to the overwhelmingly swift sell-out of the Geddy Lee MP40 Limited Edition Signature SansAmp, Tech 21 is offering the YYZ Shape-shifter Signature SansAmp. While the features and functionality are the same, the cosmetics have been changed out of respect for the limited number of MP40s. The color scheme and graphics are now in alignment with Geddy’s other Signature SansAmps: GED-2112 rackmount, DI-2112 desk-top, and YYZ single footswitch pedal.
The all-analog YYZ Shape-shifter SansAmp builds upon the original YYZ pedal with the addition of a selectable Boost stomp switch that provides a 12dB presence boost for increased top-end distortion. Engaging the Shape-shifter button adds 6dB of Schmegilka on top, which, according to Geddy, “is an indefinable thing of awesomeness!”
Other features include: a Mix control to blend the ratio of high-end studio clean and dirty bass tube amp tones; Tight button adds definition to notes in cleaner settings and makes distorted tones snappier; Drive control; active 3-band EQ; and Master Volume. Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional DC power supply.
As with all SansAmps, you can record directly and enhance previously recorded tracks. For live performances, you can drive a power amp and speakers, augment an existing amplifier set-up, or run directly into the mixer of a PA system. And each Geddy Lee Signature SansAmp offers Geddy’s core sound, as well as the versatility for many different styles and tones.
