Tech 21 GT 2

Sans Amp Tube Amp Emulator

The Sans Amp came out at a time when Modeling Amps were still in the distance, and convinced with its really realistic sounds. But even now, the GT2 can still claim its place, because, despite its ease of operation, the GT2 is really extremely flexible, and every guitar player should probably be able to make his favorite sound for direct solutions.

  • Selectable amp types: Tweed, British, California
  • 3 Basic settings: Clean, Hi Gain, Hot Wired
  • Additional drive control
  • Adjustable simulated microphone position: Classic, Center, Off Axis
  • Active EQ section
  • Suitable power supply: Art.409939 (not included)

Sounds like a guitar amp.
18.06.2016
I am not a guitarist. But I do record them often. And I also have a 24 fret 6 string bass, which sounds like a guitar near the top of the fretboard. So I bought this for recording.

When I plug this thing in, I can get really great tones out of it straight away. It sounds fantastic on any settings (apart from the EQ, which I always leave flat, and EQ ITB instead). There's no harshness which you might get from digital FX. (Not that digital amp emulators are bad, but many of them just use waveshaping instead of proper circuit simulation). And it's always better to record through a distortion effect instead of adding it afterwards.

I can also get great distorted bass tones out of it too. If I want to get a Motown distorted P-bass sound (where the distortion becomes invisible in the mix, but helps the bass stick out) it's very easy to dial in.

I do wish this had a parallel dry output though. I know there are other SansAmp models which do this, but it didn't have many options. So I just use an active signal splitter before going in to record the dry signal too.

Utile!
Jossax, 07.08.2011
Voilà une pedale couteau suisse fort bien faite! Je suis guitariste pro et cette pedale me sert dans de multiples situation, à tel point qu'elle fait partie de mon pédalier.

Son utilisation première pour moi est la simulation d'ampli, je l'utilise souvent en simulation d'ampli en son clair, en direct console, afin de passer mes pédales dedans. Super efficace autant en concert que chez moi pour bosser dans mon home-studio.

L'autre utilisation est pour moi de la brancher comme une pedale de saturation traditionnelle, pour obtenir au contraire des très grosses saturations, elle a un coté un peu chimique qui correspond exactement à ce que je veux, et de manière toutes les pédales de cette marque ont une petite empreinte sonore qui plait ou pas, mais qui se place très bien dans un mix.

Je ne m'en sers pas pour ça mais elle peut aussi être utiliser directement en carte son pour l'enregistrement.

L'étoile manquante pour la fabrication est du au fait que la pedale utilise pas mal de plastique, j'utilise la mienne depuis des années et fonctionne parfaitement, mais je garde un doute quant au long terme, peut-être à tort.

Als Amp Emulator nur mäßig
GreyFACE, 11.08.2014
Ich kann nur über den Einsatzbereich sprechen in dem ich den Tech 21 GT2 getestet habe, vor einer aktiven Fullrange-Box als Amp-Emulator.
So richtig überzeugt war ich leider nicht, mit nur 2 Klangreglern lässt sich leider relativ wenig anpassen, und die Verzerrung klang in meinen Ohren unschön und Transistor-lastig. Da ich sonst VollröhrenAmps spiele und nach einer Alternative gesucht habe, wie ich mein Gitarrensignal direkt ins Pult schieben kann mit einem Sound der meinen bisherigen Erfahrungen nahe kommt, war ich etwas entäuscht.

Man kann zwar mit den Reglern und Schiebeschaltern einiges am Sound schrauben, leider konnte mich wirklich keine der Einstellungen überzeugen. Vor allem habe ich leider keinen wirklch schönen CleanSound gebastelt bekommen der dann auch die Zerrung von meinem H&K Tubefactor vertragen hätte ohne komisch zu klingen oder schon im Cleanen anzuzerren, was wie schon oben erwähnt total unnatürlich und in meinen Ohren nicht schön klingt.

Abgesehen davon ist die Verarbeitung von der Kiste allererste Sahne, aber etwas anderes erwartet man von SansAmp auch nicht.

Kleine Anmerkung zum Schluss:
Ich nutze jetzt die Palmer PDI-09 mit dem AMT SS-11 Preamp davor. Wer also etwas für den Verwendungszweck Amp-Emulator sucht...

die eierlegende Wollmilchsau
Matthias766, 11.12.2009
Es ist ein unscheinbarer schwarzer Treter, ganz ohne Glamour oder einem wohlklingenden Namen und meines Wissens hat es nicht mal einen GT 1 gegeben. Selbst was sich hinter GT verbirgt, weiß ich nicht.

Was kann man mit der Kiste machen?
1. Einsatz als Verzerrer: Das können andere Geräte deutlich besser.
2. Vorstufenersatz und direkt in den Effekt-Return spielen: Damit hat man einen einkanaligen Amp mit guten Klangeigenschaften.
3. Direkt in die P.A.: Auch wieder einkanalig tönt es dann über die Anlage wie ein abgenommener Amp.
4. Direkt "auf´s Band". Aufnehmen, ohne den Nachbarn zu stören. Wunderbar.

Die Bedienung ist kinderleicht. Man wählt mit einem Schieberegler einen Amp aus, Fender, Marshall oder Boogie. Dann wählt man, ob clean, zerre oder highgain und die Position eines Mikros. Letzteres wirkt wie eine komplexe EQ-Einstellung. Danach lässt sich natürlich Gain und Master einstellen und Höhen und Bässe gibt es auch noch.

Von klingelnden Fenderklängen bis brachialen Rammstein-Gewittern ist alles drin, lediglich angezerrte Sounds sind etwas schwierig zu erzielen. Soundmäßig hinkt das etwas in die Jahre gekommene Gerät aber der aktuellen digitalen Konkurrenz etwas hinterher. Auch die Character Series aus dem eigenen Haus ist dem GT-2 deutlich überlegen - wenn auch beschränkter im Spektrum.
