REVIEWS & USER COMMENTS:
MusicGearReviews.com - February 2001
Maybe you've heard of them, and maybe you haven't, but one thing's for sure: you better not overlook the SansAmp GT2 by Tech21. The SansAmp GT2 is a direct-in or preamp-in tube amplifier emulator. Basically, that means this product helps the user reproduce that warm, natural sound of a tube amp, all while allowing the tonal personality of the instrument to remain unaltered. To go a step further, the GT2 doesn't just emulate a "generic" tube sound, but instead can be adjusted to emulate the tones of some of the worlds greatest tube amps like Fender, Marshall, and Mesa/Boogie. And the best part is that getting these great tones is easy. The Bottom Line is this: for less than $200 you get a quality direct-box-in-a-foot-pedal that emulates some of the finest tube amplifiers in the world. This is a finely crafted unit that's tough, durable and has incredible tonal characteristics.
"The GT2 is the only pedal (next to the DG Stomp) that gets the closest to the feel of a real tube amp. The Boogie setting is extremely close to my old DC-2. I can get a JTM45 and a JCM900 Marshall tone easily on the British setting. I was really impressed with the Tweed setting! The Tweed setting is PERFECT for guitar AND bass. "
"Amazing. The single best amp modeling box out there. I compared it with the Line 6 POD, the Digitech 2120 with speaker simulator, and the Roland VG-8 among others. They did not compare. I use it for what its name implies: recording without mic'ing an amp. The GT2 even gave my mic'ed Boogie a run for its money."
