The YYZ Shape-shifter SansAmp includes the addition of a selectable Boost stomp switch, providing a 12dB presence boost for increased top-end distortion. Engaging the Shape-shifter button adds 6dB of Schmegilka on top, which, according to Geddy, “is an indefinable thing of awesomeness!”
- All analog SansAmp technology enables you to record directly and enhance previously recorded tracks. For live performances, the YYZ Shape-shifter 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 (Deep) and dirty bass tube amp tones (Drive).
- Tight button to add definition to your notes in cleaner settings and make distorted tones snappier.
- Boost / Shape-shifter selectable Boost function deviates from the norm. It provides a 12dB presence boost for increased top-end distortion. Kick in the Shape-shifter button, and get 6dB of Schmegilka on top, which, according to Geddy “is an indefinable thing of awesomeness!”
- 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 #DC9 (or former models #DC2 or #DC4).
