Tech 21 has expanded their SansAmp Character Series with the addition of 3 new pedals: Oxford, Leeds and U.S. Steel. The Oxford's tones range from '70s London glam to modern stoner rock. The Leeds spans from the '60s classic UK rock to '70s prog rock. U.S. Steel delivers tones from '90s Valhalla to the aughts Nu-metal chunk. Following the same design formula as the existing Blonde, British, California, Liverpool and VT Bass pedals, each of the continuously-variable Character controls sweeps through an entire tonal range of possibilities. By simply twisting a few knobs, you can build the most sought-after tones and hot rod your own. From rare vintage classics to roaring modern icons, every variation is delivered in the dis- tinctive voicing of that amp style. Being genuine SansAmps, each Character Series pedal can be used as a stand-alone pre-amp to drive a power amp, a studio mixer, or a PA system, or used as a stompbox with an amp. Other features include built-in, defeatable speaker simulation, which is individually tuned to match each of the speak- er/cabinet configurations associated with each type of amplifier; 3-band active EQ, Drive and Level controls; and 100% analog circuitry. Each are operable with 9V battery (not included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2). Manufactured in the U.S.A. MSRP: $225.00.
