Whether plugging into a digital recorder, console, or PA, the Tech 21 SansAmp Classic is a pedal designed to produce amp-like tones in amplifier-free situations. It can also be used in conjunction with amplifiers, either to eliminate the need for an effects-loop between the preamp and cabinet stages of a traditional setup, or simply to juice the tones of a given amp outright. 

The SansAmp Classic features a three-way input switch that adjusts the preamp style; the 'Lead' setting emulates Marshall-style preamps by emphasizing the mid-range and highs, the 'Normal' setting is reminiscent of Mesa Boogie-style preamps with a basically flat EQ, and the 'Bass' setting mimics the sound of Fender-style preamps, suitable for bass and also rhythm guitar applications. In addition to the three input styles, there are eight individual character controls that can be combined for a multitude of tonal possibilities. The unit has also been "Hot Wired" to achieve less unwanted noise than traditional amplifiers, and seeks to improve your tone in bypass mode by offering an F.E.T. buffer at the input and output points.

  1. Mid-Boost I: alters preamp's mid-range EQ curve 
  2. Mid-Boost II: alters preamp's mid-range EQ curves  
  3. Low Drive: acts as high-pass filter when OFF
  4. Clean Amp: cleans up overdrive
  5. Bright Switch: adds brightness when Amp Drive is on low settings
  6. Vintage Tubes: final sound is slightly softer and more mellow
  7. Speaker Edge: adds extra presence
  8. Close Miking: simulates close miking and boosts low end
