    Tech 21 Geddy Lee YYZ Signature SansAmp Drive Pedal, Jan 12, 2021
  1. MojaveVox

    Bought it new a few weeks ago, realized I didn’t really need it, my GK head and the rest of my pedalboard can do everything I need it too, and this was just a bit overkill. These things need no introduction, but on the off chance anyone's unfamiliar here's the manufacturers description:
    "Wanting to streamline and simplify his gear for new projects, Geddy Lee partnered with Tech 21 to design a signature rackmount SansAmp, the GED-2112. This challenging collaboration involved distilling a boatload of equipment into a single rackspace. Challenging ourselves, to bring a super-compact, portable alternative, we further distilled the rackmount into a pedal format. The SansAmp YYZ offers Geddy’s core sound and the versatility for many different styles YYZ FEATURES • All analog SansAmp technology enables you to record directly and enhance previously recorded tracks. For live performances, the YYZ can drive a power amp and speakers, augment your existing amplifier set-up, or run directly into the mixer of a PA system.
    • Mix control to blend the ratio of high-end studio clean and dirty bass tube amp tones. • Tight button to add definition to your notes in cleaner settings and make distorted tones snappier.• Drive adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive, similar to when the output section of a tube amp is being pushed.• Active 3-band EQ.• Master volume.• Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 model #DC2, #DC4 or #DC9)."

    It's basically brand new, I took it out of the box and played with it for a few minutes, but it's obviously never been gigged or left the house. Has the original box and manual and everything.
    150$ Shipped CONUS.

  4. Tech 21 Sansamp YYZ Geddy-in-a-box, Aug 20, 2020
  5. jacoby75

    I swore I would never sell this pedal . . . ever. I'm sorry Geddy. Please don't think badly of me. You're still my hero. The truth is I never ever WOULD sell this pedal. However, I am leaving behind the concept of building the perfect "ampless pedalboard" and am returning to my rack setup. As this has become integral to my Covid quarantine bedroom-jamming tone, I have already ordered a rackmount version. So this can go to a new home where it will be loved and appreciated.

    I purchased it brand new in November, 2019. It has lived in my smoke-free, pet-free, but not Rush-free home for the past few months and has never left the house. It is in dead mint condition, with the exception of the conveniently-mounted velcro on the bottom, and will come with the original box and associated goodies.

    The YYZ can of course cover every era of Geddy. But it can do so much more. It's a very versatile amp-in-a-box. The suggested settings are a great place to start. It can do a pretty convincing studio B15 amp sim, as well as the typical Geddy grind. The secret to me is the "tight" switch, which removes some low end from the drive side and really tightens it up, as the name would imply. And it has a beautiful midrange presence. There are several videos online of what it's capable of, so feel free to check it out.

  8. Tech21 SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe - Programmable, Oct 2, 2017
  9. kageronyc

    Very flexible, programmable DI unit with two inputs. It allows you to set up two instruments, like your upright and your electric, and switch back and forth between the two without any popping or chord changing.

    This unit is in mint condition, I still have the box and the instruction manual (some wear and tear) but the unit itself is mint. It didn't come with a power supply, that was an option from Tech 21, Model #DC2. I powered it with a 9 volt, which lasts quite some time.

    SHIPPING TO THE CONUS ONLY, $15

    Here is a blurb from the Tech 21 site:
    For bassists who like to switch it up on stage, the SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe is the ultimate live tool for the bass-hopping, preset-stomping player. The Deluxe is all about fast delivery of monster Tech 21 bass tones in the fray of a live performance. Dual inputs enable two instruments to be on-line and ready to go with a pop-free selector. You can program three custom tones for each input, or use all six for a single instrument. You can also program the FX loop to engage your favorite effect with a particular setting and the Deluxe will bring it every time that preset is selected.

    The fat, funky tones of the SansAmp Bass Driver series are legendary. With an all-analog signal path, two inputs, six presets, a programmable effect loop, and parallel/tuner out, the stage-optimized Deluxe is all that with cheese and pickles.

  10. FS: Sansamp PSA 1.1, Midi Moose, Apr 30, 2013
  11. Durden26

    I have up for grabs my one year old Sansamp PSA 1.1 midi switchable amp modeler. It is in flawless condition and kills on either guitar or bass. My only reason for selling is that I get all my dirt from my pedalboard, and I no longer need the rack processor.

    Price drop on Package Deal! was $500 now $400!!
    for the Sansamp + midi moose+ cable!
    *Free Shipping*
    I will ship this guy Fed Ex. So no worries of USPS hassles.

    From the Tech21 page:
    Considered a staple in professional recording studios, the SansAmp PSA has been used on major releases and worldwide tours for multiple applications and instruments, including horns, vocals and drums. Players, engineers and producers alike find the SansAmp PSA very simple to operate. To program, you just tweak the knobs and save. Parameters are adjusted in real time with traditional analog potentiometers. The digital memory stores the positions of the pots. With 256 incremental steps, each rotary control increases and decreases in a smooth linear fashion.

    The exceptionally versatile SansAmp PSA-1.1 offers 49 factory presets of the most recognized vintage and modern tube amp sounds for guitar and bass, and 77 user-definable locations. A Universal Output Section enables the signal to be compatible with full range systems as well as guitar/bass speaker cabinets. With the SansAmp PSA-1.1, you can record direct to tape, as well as warm up existing tracks in mixdowns. For live applications, it can be used as a pre-amp, “monster direct box” to P.A. system, and as an outboard processor.

    I'm asking$420 shipped in the US OBO. Pay Pal Only please. All insulting offers will be politely ignored.

    I also have a Tech 21 Midi Moose controller. It is perfect for switching the PSA 1.1. It has velcro on the bottom. There are a couple of scratches, but she functions perfectly. I'll do $100 shipped by itself. Buy the Midi moose and I'll throw in a free 25ft midi cable!

    From the Tech21 site:
    Whether you’re a MIDI-meister or amongst the MIDI-mindless, the MIDI Moose is a super simple, stage-friendly alternative to access 128 patches. Tech 21’s intuitive engineering eliminates the intimidation of trying to decipher an encyclopedia-sized manual just so you can change a darn program. Like its MIDI Mouse cousin, the MIDI Moose is also battery operable and provides a minimum of 200 hours usage. Its sophisticated battery-saving feature turns off the numerical display after 5 seconds. What if you forget where
    you were? Just hit the footswitch of the individual patch LED that has remained lit, and it will wake up the display without making any program changes.

    Housed in a sleek aluminum chassis,there are Up and Down footswitches to select groupings of five preset programs. Individual silent-switching, custom actuators instantly engage each program change directly within the selected grouping.

    Operable with standard 9V alkaline battery (not included), optional power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2) or phantom power via the MIDI cable.


    Actual size: 17”L x 3.75”W x 2.0”H.


    My only trade interest is a Line 6 Relay G90 Wireless system.


    Thank you for looking.

    Submitted for your approval or purchase desires:

    Tech 21 Comptortion

    In excellent shape. No physical flaws or blemishes. Velcro on bottom. Electronically in very good shape as well. It's a cool box but I am looking to put it in someone's hands that will use it as I have different needs now than when I originally purchased it nearly 5 years ago.

    From the Tech 21 archive site:

    CompTortion -
    A compression/distortion pedal

    The CompTortion logically, and uniquely, combines two effects: compression and distortion. No other single pedal offers this kind of control over such a range of sounds --from totally clean to light distortion to smooth overdrive, and from zero compression to completely squashed.

    Musically voiced to complement each other, these effects are independently adjustable so you can control the ratio that best suits your particular taste. Characteristic of all Tech 21 products, the CompTortion is multifunctional, exceptionally versatile, and will not depersonalize your guitar tone. You can use either the compression or distortion separately, or you can, of course, mix the two together. The CompTortion can also be used for just a clean boost.

    Controls include "Comp", "Tortion", Tone and Level.

    Operable with optional DC power supply, Tech 21 Model #DC2, or 9V alkaline battery (not included).

    Actual size: 4.5" x 3.5" x 1.5" / Weight 14 oz.

    Will sell for $75 shipped. Payment via PayPal only.

    Will trade for overdrive and fuzz. Willing to PayPal amount to cover spread between pedals.
    Very interested in:

  18. Tech 21’s Bass Boost Chorus Now Shipping, May 31, 2011
  19. TalkBass

    This pedal gives bass players something long deserved: a chorus that actually works --on bass. Derived from the careful study of ‘70s vintage choruses, Tech 21 combines studio-grade performance with an entertaining, yet cleverly useful, array of never-before-heard sounds. Packed with an unusual amount of controls for this kind of effect, the Bass Boost Chorus offers incredible flexibility for such a compact pedal.

    The Detune control adjusts the pitch of the choral voices, creating thick, lush, bass-compatible chorus. While Speed and Depth controls add modulation, you can set them at minimum to preserve the fundamentals. This avoids that queasy, seasick feeling typically associated with traditional chorus pedals when used on bass. A Multi Voice switch adds dimension and thickens the sound with additional choral
    voicings. Other features include all-analog Mix, Tone and Level controls; Speed and Depth work in conjunction to control their respective functions of the modulation; Mix ranges from 100% wet to 100% dry; buffered bypass; and a silent-switching, custom footswitch actuator.

    Operable with 9V battery (not included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2).

    Manufactured in the U.S.A.
