  1. Agreed. Simply awful response to demand.

    Does anyone here with a 2112 and a YYZ have an opinion on the tight switch and what the 2112 misses out on that? I have a 2112 but the YYZ is looking good...

    I like pyrmaxe but maybe they didn’t order enough? They’re available elsewhere.

    Is someone running the YYZ in parallel of another effect or clean tone ?

    I'm thinking about running it in parallel of clean tone and also a BDI-21 for super tube attack presence cling clang ( Behringer copy of sansamp BDDI )
    But currently still waiting my YYZ To ne delivered in Europe, maybe I won't even need such a parallel thing .
  6. Thomann (for Europe) have update lead time to delivery by another 5-6 weeks :thumbsdown:

    I've been hearing 2-3 weeks from Prymaxe for the last 4-5 weeks now. I feel your frustration bud.

    Playing around with the yyz settings today into my rig (cali 76tx into sonic stomp into yyz into mesa d800 head) and I noticed a metallic click when I hit hard on a fret but would not happen when pedal was off . Does anyone know what might be happening and what can I do to get rid off it. Besides the obvious turn it off ...lol

    Oh noOo, not again!
  12. At this point I’m hoping Tech21 jump in and say Wallace you’re wrong we’ve just shipped 200 units to ?? in Europe. :hyper:

    I received mine on the 6th (my bday!) and I just got around to trying it tonight. I plugged my Rickenbacker 4003w into it and then went to town on some Rush songs. Instant tone! Holy moly does this thing nail exactly what I’m looking for when I use the Rick. Absolutely, 100%, a keeper!

    www.geartree.com says they have some in stock. They are also on Amazon. I've purchased from them before.

    No affiliation, just tryin' to help some brothers and sisters out.
  16. That's great news. Looking forwards to them making an appearance.
  17. Thanks Ken. Appreciated.
    I can see them on Amazon.com but they won't ship to the UK:(

    Quick update for fellow Europeans, just got mine from the Finnish distributor. I picked it up at their Helsinki store. So, yes, YYZ is in Europe and your store will hopefully have it soon, too :)

    Christmas in July! Pretty nervous plugging in first time, I do not like to waste money on gear. But it has been ages since I got anything new, and this pedal seemed tailor-made to my interests and needs. Tried a passive Jazz with flats and an active with rounds.

    Both channels performed as advertised, sweeping the MIX and getting a sense of the tones. Then I went right for the settings as a starting point. Of course tried Geddy Lee’s Personal Setting first, and darned if it did not sound like him especially when digging in. Tried all the other samples, too. Will definitely revisit the Jack Bruce setting! Found the Tool setting to be a little muffled. I ended up working from the Rickenbacker setting, switched on a fat stereo chorus and dug into “Forty Six & 2”. Very smooth with just the right grit when you dig in, and lovely harmonics with chords. It is responsive. It is certainly the quietest Tech 21 unit I have, very hi-fi.

    Before I got too far, I quickly compared to the Oxford, which always made my Jazz sound farty and flabby. The Oxford loves the P, like John Wetton, dynamic and loud but a bit wild and uncontrollable. Clearly, the YYZ’s two channels and MIX are its heart and soul, but as usual with all Tech 21 pedals, all the controls are gloriously interactive, so I will continue to experiment.
