Tech 21 GED-2112 Signature SansAmp YYZ Pedal
Geddy Lee has been performing without onstage amps and speakers since 1996, favoring major household appliances instead. Known for using a variety of gear to create interesting layered tones, Geddy has included the SansAmp RBI and/or the SansAmp RPM in his rig since 2001. Wanting to streamline and simplify his gear for new projects, Geddy Lee partnered with Tech 21 to design a signature rackmount SansAmp, the GED-2112. This challenging collaboration involved distilling a boatload of equipment into a single rackspace.
As a design challenge to bring a super-compact, portable alternative, Tech 21 further distilled the rackmount into a pedal format. The Tech 21 SansAmp YYZ offers Geddy’s core sound and the versatility for many different styles.
The all-analog SansAmp technology enables you to record directly and enhance previously recorded tracks. For live performances, the YYZ can drive a power amp and speakers, augment your existing amplifier set-up, or run directly into the mixer of a PA system.
