    Tech 21 Q/Strip, May 9, 2021 at 4:45 PM
  1. TXBassTone

    Mint condition. Very versatile EQ and DI box. Includes original tin, and paperwork. I only ship to the Continental US.

    From Tech 21:
    Tech 21 Q\Strip EQ + Preamp
    The ‘60s and ‘70s are widely recognized as the heyday for professional recording console design. The EQ and preamp sections of these near-mythical vintage consoles are highly sought after, even to this day. Some of the most iconic guitar and bass tones in the history of recorded audio were tracked “direct” straight into these consoles’ channel strips.

    The Q\Strip was designed with sophisticated features that enable you to take these highly-coveted tone shaping circuits with you, whether you’re heading to a live gig or tracking in the studio or into your DAW. It’s compact, extremely cost-effective and in an ultra-convenient DI format.

    The 100% analog MOSFET circuitry in the heart of the Q\Strip provides the warmth, girth and larger-than-life tones for which vintage consoles are revered. Add in four bands of pro-audio-quality equalization, two parametric mid bands, as well as high and low shelving filters, and you have incredible control over how your instrument cuts through on stage or in a mix.

    The HPF and LPF give added control over the frequency spectrum whether you’re going direct with your bass, guitar, fiddle...or even a vocal. The Q\Strip is limited only by how far you are willing to push your creativity and how much of that juicy vintage tone you crave.

    Tech 21 Q\Strip EQ + Preamp Features:
    • HPF cuts unmusical rumble associated with many instruments when going direct.
    • LPF rolls off undesirable frequencies. Can also be used as a speaker simulator. When used in conjunction with the studio-grade EQ section, you can recreate different speaker cabinet curves so you can go direct with your favorite distortion and effects pedals.
    • Very high impedance accommodates piezos and handles low impedance sources equally well.
    • XLR is capable to drive power amps and has a -20dB pad to accommodate mic level inputs on mixers and pre-amps.
    • 1/4-inch output has switchable +10dB boost on tap, which is useful to drive power amps or push tube amps into overdrive.
    • Three modes of operation:
      1. Phantom power via the XLR Output
      2. Standard 9V alkaline battery (not included)
      3. Optional power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC4)
    • Smooth-action custom actuator
    • All-metal housing
  2. Tech 21 Geddy Lee YYZ Signature SansAmp Drive Pedal, Jan 12, 2021
  3. 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.

  6. Tech 21 Sansamp YYZ Geddy-in-a-box, Aug 20, 2020

    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.

    View attachment 3160192 View attachment 3160193 I’m putting up for sale or trade (more to come on that later in thread) my Tech21 Qstrip pedal. I’ve had the pedal for a few months and it’s honestly a great pedal. The only issue is that since I own Sans Amp Bass driver it seems to be in use more than the Qstrip. I’ve taken the next part from the Tech21 page for info on this pedal.

    While it’s on my pedal board strip holding it in place is the peel off kind so you’d get it clean and smooth.

    For Trades I’m open to Graphic Eq pedals.
