Product Description

Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Leeds Distortion-Overdrive Pedal


The Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Leeds distortion pedal takes its mojo from the most respected amp tones on both sides of the Atlantic. These guitar effects pedals don't just have a single character, they have the whole cast, plot, and curtain call.

The Tech 21 SansAmp Leeds pedal's massive headroom delivers the rich bell-like clean tones that drove the classic UK rock and pop bands of the '70s. Lean into high-gain gear for a bare-knuckle growl that retains plenty of definition. Push Leeds distortion pedal harder and suddenly you are live at Leeds.

The SansAmp guitar effect's Level and Drive controls work like a traditional, well-equipped amp. Low, Mid, and High are active, providing a wider array of tonal possibilities. The Character knob is a continuously-variable control that moves seamlessly between different model voicings, covering vintage, high-gain, and face-melting lead tones. The SansAmp Leeds pedal's Character and Mid controls, and the speaker emulations, are all engineered to personify the specific amplifier traits and speakers associated with each amplifier type. 

The SansAmp technology captures the warm, rich, natural tones of the most sought-after tube amplifiers. Within the parameters of each model's particular design, the controls provide you with access to specific tone shaping characteristics within the tube amplifier sound spectrum.

SansAmp products are designed to work seamlessly in both recording and stage environments. They can be used with almost any instrument, for any music style, and for multiple applications. Record directly to tape and disc or enhance previously recorded tracks. For live performances, they can drive a power amp and speakers, augment your existing amplifier setup, or run directly into the mixer of a PA system.

Tech 21: Leeds - To Amp Input (Strat and Les Paul) (04:22)
www.tech21nyc.comThe new Character Series from Tech 21 (Oxford, Leeds and US Steel) can be used in three ways: to the amp's input, direct to a powered monitor, computer or house system; or to your amp's power amp via the Return jack in the effects loop. The older series can also be used this way but these latest three have the added advantage of a speaker defeat button which allows you to turn off the speaker emulation.Here I demonstrate the Leeds as stompbox - running straight to my Laney's input. I'm running the clean channel with the tones flat and Leed's speaker defeat button OFF. Switching off the speaker defeat button defeats the speaker emulation so you can more easily use it with a regular amp, as I'm doing here. The results? Pretty damn good.I know it's going to be compared to other HIWATT style pedals currently on the market so I'm interested to hear your opinions. 1, 2, 3, go...A video showing the Leeds being used as a direct device, straight to the computer, can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU2kNwu3IZoCheers,BK.
