    Analog amp simulator pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    Pedal very simple and yet very rich in opportunity

    SOUND QUALITY

    Reading the posts there is a big misunderstanding.
    The SansAmp was a revolution, it was the first pedal amp simulation.
    But from the pod are reached, provided specifically for recording.

    So I write this review for the reader to understand something SansAmp.
    Today there are lots of pedals that sound 10 times better than the SansAmp in direct contact with a recording console or a computer.
    on the other hand, if we use the SansAmp preamp like a guitar plugged into an amp, the sound is still largely valid, and, to my taste, superior to the pods.

    OVERALL OPINION

    After years of use here is my conclusion:
    If you want a pedal home studio you buy something else
    There are now tons of pedals that are mieuxdans this area.

    If you want a pedal preamp / distortion versatile plug into an amp the SansAmp is a great pedal (especially given the ridiculous price in okaz!)
    And if you want to record the sound of SansAmp it is plugged into an amp and it takes the sound of the amp.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Especially effective distortion I use it as rescue belt in case the trick.
    Nice with a bass and clean with some british mode are great.
    I use it only very rarely in the input of an amplifier (when no choice) but in the RETURN (loop); guitar IN and OUT and return it in the party.
    Of course the input of the amp it gets loud (like the mxr dime) on PREAM preamp not cool.
    Console it is better that it be a lamp or a good preamp if not the GT2 in a DI or other amp sim and the table does.
    Or it can serve as clean preamp, or after we crunch and distortion can add its top.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It is a bit expensive new addition to 200Eu but want it a classic.
    I like the pedals because it sounds almost anywhere, anytime.
    I prefer it in the hi gain marshall and sometimes hot wired, and the bass fender desfois.
    it is true that the input of a ammpli I do not like the sound too loud and too little in return rel but it's great, I also tried it on a power amp direct on amp output and 4X12's cool.
    I found that on another prempli whatsoever (table, amp, etc) is not sound terrible, but live in a good amp or direct box or table is gnial.
    I love it I would do this choice.
    By the way I got the standard stuff and believe me when I say it's not a ringing cons say.
    Of course a pod or zoom or tone MAIX lab will be better for whom? for what cases? and for what?
    I noticed over time that as the pedal or the device is very simple or too minimalist for some, this rule is aimed gnrale for musicians or pro confirm very demanding and picky who does not care to have many things in one.
    I advise everyone to try it in front return with DI and other if possible.
    I repeat that choice.

    A bit expensive new, but it's worth three rolls imagine the amp and in addition it's not hard to bear, it's never down except the battery that takes a very long time

    Effects see features, it's gross!

    UTILIZATION

    Simple adjustments, not making any head of programming, so why more? (Except for jazzeux and again ...)

    SOUND QUALITY

    Associated with a good tube amp fender type clean sound, a real preference, you burst everyone!

    For specifications, see below or the site builder.
    My predecessors were very well presented!

    I said nonetheless that this pedal was recovered at the bottom of the attic and probably more than fifteen years.

    UTILIZATION

    4 knobs and 3 buttons, to full of different sounds, nothing wrong side of it!

    Say compared to pre-amp simulation, we have a lot fewer buttons and the touch of a parameter changes the sound of a very significant way.

    In short, for me with analog you really feel that the case live from the digital style pod, ToneLab or Vamp.

    In short, for me with analog you really feel that the case live from the digital style pod, ToneLab or Vamp.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I tested a large number of numerical simulations (V amp, POD, ToneLab ...) and what I love about them is that it sounds now and in anything but the biggest complaint is that the dynamics of the guitarist is often damaged, ie the light rhythmic accents or nuances. This is not a defect because it helps hide imperfections in the game

    With the GT2, it is in the world of analog, and as soon as I plugged for the first time on a table or on an amp I did not say "It sounds to death this box!" as for the POD or the ToneLab.
    I just said "fuck it sounds like a good amp!" and that's his forte
    We are in a range of sounds raw and unadorned rock and roll and you find yourself playing long on a simple sound. For me the name of preamp / amp simulator is fully justified.

    We move from the blues, British rock, hard rock and metal of the 80 in a movement of fingers ...
    It would be the ultimate weapon if there was a little reverb and more!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I was used in recent numerical simulations that ring of hell with several dozen simulation, 3-band equalizer and a whole army of effects (reverb, chorus, delay, flanger ...). Faced with such an arsenal pedal may seem ridiculous.

    Indeed, it is analog, then sends the breath, sizzles by touching the knobs (I recall that this pedal has more than fifteen years and has been dusted!). In addition we have a 2-band equalizer and few simulation (27 combinations to max!)

    on the other hand, it produces a true to my game, a raw sound amp rock n 'roll that smells of stale smoke and alcohol. And this impression, I've never felt on a digital simulator. Which brings me to say that it is suitable for a certain category of musicians who are looking for a type of sound by purchasing this pedal.
    While a buyer Pod seeks above all to be able to do it all!
    Used on a stereo, a sound recording or PC, I must admit that I can not part with it.

    The overall opinion is therefore linked to the subjectivity of each, in my case it J'adooore!
    With the unit, plan to limit a slight reverb, you tell me the news!

    The GT2 offers a wide range of amplifier easily recognizable and sought after for their uniqueness. Is that the happiness of grind just 4 knobs and 3 switches.

    I like the British and Tweed amps clean mode with the drive to two-thirds ... rock, punk, blues, everything from good.

    I plugged the case of a live sound card ... a lot or more. (amending .. not so good in fact live in LEPC)
    "" "" "On a tube amp Harley Benton GA5 and have a blast.
    The memory system settings is remarkable and so 60 years ... a paper and pencil.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    for too little time.

    - What is so special that you like most and least?
    Race unreasonable or unnecessary in my opinion the two knobs of equalization in their first tier.

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Line6/Vamp/ME5 ... together with a sling load of distortion pedals.

    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    I can not judge the ratio Q / P especially as I slammed in to a lot of very similar products.

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ..
    Do not miss out on, you must try it.
    I should have bought the classic SansAmp ten years ago ... With experience, I would buy a second GT2 and store it in a dry place for fear that I catch fire for some unknown reason. And then it opened my appetite and go to see the side of the pedal SansAmp Character Series

    Before dferlante of POD simulation and numriques, the SansAmp silent in the REFERENCE Contents amp simulation and in a fawn, it still is because unlike Line 6 products and their competitors at Vox, Boss, etc..

    UTILIZATION

    Frankly, the performance is terrible on a transistor amplifier even if its primary purpose!

    I prefer the sound California, others work well also but I use them less.

    I use it for several months.

    I do it again without hesitation that choice!
