Tech 21 pioneered the direct recording movement and created an entirely new category of signal processing. The revolutionary SansAmp tube amplifier emulator was the first device to enable musicians to dial in monster tones and patch them directly to a studio mixer or stage PA. Finally, it was possible to get stunning, consistent tones without futzing for hours and hours to find that elusive ‘sweet spot.’ Instead, the 100% analog SansAmp delivered all of its mammoth sounds from a pocket-sized pedal.
Tech 21 continually strives to offer player-friendly, truly useful, flexible, multi-functional, roadworthy, workhorse products. In a world of planned obsolescence and constant upgrades, many of our products have changed little, or not at all, and are still in production today.
