        Tech 21 is a Sans Amp which means it simulates an amp and you can play it straight into a PA. They are usually a lot harder to dial in on an actual amp.

        The WIIO is an overdrive pedal which means it is mainly used to add drive or dirt to your signal. If you have a tube amp these pedals can sound amazing.

        That being said I don't have any experience using either...

            1962 Fender Bandmaster that lacks all brightness and Fender qualities.

            which is weird.

            sounds like a Brit amp compared to my Hot Rod Deluxe

              have you ever changed tubes on it?

                you can use the wiio as a clean pre amp, just roll the gain down. i've never had a hiwatt, but i like the clean tone from it (or how it alters your already clean tone).

                    Based completely on clips alone, I think the leeds sounds more like an actual Hiwatt.

                      You can also set it to be quite clean and use the EQ to create a 'clean' Hiwatt sound.



                      Not bad with an acoustic either.

                        Those series of amps are what Marshall attempted to copy when making the JTM45, so its not surprizing you think it sounds 'british'.

                          Maybe formfactor? Think the JTM45 circuit is more 5F6 Bassman related.

                            It isn't a typical Fender amp. Cherish that thing for it's "tremolo". I'd say the blonde era wasn't fully realized. Something like Britney Spears, not quite a tweed, not quite a tolex.

                              have not tried the Tech 21 pedal yet.......but the WIIO does a pretty damn good job of emulating the basic HIWATT tones.

                              and version 2 of the WIIO is quite an improvement from version 1

                              i have been experimenting with using the WIIO with the gain way down.....and it works kinda nice like that.

                              gonna do some new demos of the WIIO version 2, will be uploaded this weekend
                              long, strong, and down to get the friction on......
