The Vox AC30has always been one of my favorite amps. It has a darker characteristic to them them that is very appealing and full of tone. This pedal is the pedal that attempts to emulate the tone and voicing of a British Vox Ac30.

The Vox Ac30 is one of those amps that is really timeless now a days. The reason is that the Beatles used it as their main amps and now many players have inspired to sound like the Beatles gravitate towards the tone of a Vox Ac30.

Tech 21 as done a great job of emulating the voicing of those amps and correctly naming the pedal the Liverpool after the boys in the Beatles. This pedal sound pretty good and convincing enough for a pedal when using it directly to you computer. If you use it in front of an amp it doesn't sound anything like the Vox CA30. And that is the trick to these character series pedals from Tech 21. You need to use it as a direct into protools or whatever for it to retain the nature of the what it is going for.

UTILIZATION


Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Liverpool Pedal Features:

Authentic-sounding tones, from jangle to top-boost growl
Six level-, tone-, and drive-shaping controls (Level, Mid, Character, Drive, Low, and High knobs)
Switchable speaker emulation
Use as a stompbox, preamp, or standalone recording tool
Proven SansAmp quality and reliability

SOUND QUALITY

This thing can do the BEatles tones very easiliy. You can dial it in for a nice crunch ala Brian May and Queen. You can also get a good Edge tone from U2 with this pedal, just by dialing in the character control knob and smooth out the drive a little bit.

Use a nice Fender Stratocaster and get the mids to around 2:00 and the bass and treble at around 11:00. The character should be around 2:0 and the drive at 3:00. Then just set you level to your desired volume. There you will have a great tone for the the Edge tones. Now all you will need is a delay pedal and you're on your way.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these pedals come in at around $169, which is not a bad price for this pedal. It does sound like a Vox Ac30. However it sounds like garbage when running in the front of an amp. This pedal only really sound good when using it direct into you computer. I feel it looses some of its character when running in front.
