The Tech 21 SansAmp Character Plus Screaming Blonde delivers two tried-and-true sonic flavors: a sparkling American-voiced tube amp and a screaming-style overdrive pedal. It's an out-and-out SRV tonefest in a single stompbox. What's more, the SansAmp Character Plus's amplifier and overdrive sounds function separately, enabling you to use them together or independent of one another. The SansAmp Character Plus boasts 100% analog circuitry — no digital simulations here. You can use it as a standard stompbox, or you can deploy it as a standalone preamp straight into a power amplifier, a mixer, or a PA system. An integrated speaker simulation, a 3-band active EQ, and a rugged all-metal housing round out the SansAmp Character Plus Screaming Blonde's impressive features.

All-analog pedal design and construction done right

As impressive as the SansAmp Character Plus Screaming Blonde's tonal range may be on its own, it's even more amazing that all of this tone-shaping takes place purely in the analog domain. This imparts a smoothness and natural dynamic character that even the most sophisticated digital pedals often struggle to capture. Nonetheless, Tech 21 built this stompbox for the long haul, and many of us at AudioProCT have been using the same original SansAmp in our rigs since they first came out over 20 years ago.
