Tech 21 Introduces the SansAmp Character Plus Series

The updated Character Series line offers four new pedal options designed for use as standalone preamps or to complement an existing amp.


The new SansAmp Character Plus Series were designed to celebrate the unique chemistry between historic amplifiers and pedals, and unites them together in single packages:

  • Screaming Blonde = Fender-style + Tube Screamer-style
  • English Muffy = HiWatt-style + Big Muff-style
  • Fuzzy Brit = Marshall-style + Fuzz Face-style
  • Mop Top Liverpool = Vox-style + Rangemaster Booster-style

Screaming Blonde tones range from the ‘50s Fullerton to blackface and silverface. The English Muffy spans from classic UK rock to prog rock. Fuzzy Brit goes from classic hard rock to all current rock genres. The Mop Top Liverpool embodies the British invasion through “Bohemian” rock.

Character Plus Series pedals each offer 2 channels and a stompbox within a stompbox. The SansAmp and effects sections are independent. So, you can use the SansAmp on its own or just the effect with other pre-amps/amplifiers. SansAmps Character Plus Series pedals can be used as stand-alone pre-amps to drive a power amp, a studio mixer, or a PA system, or to complement your existing amp.

Recreating the preamp in Silvertone’ssignature ’60s amp results in a surprisingly multifaceted overdrive.

Great drive sounds, ranging from characterful boost to low-gain overdrive. Unique personality. Powerful, flexible EQ.

Arguably a bit expensive for what it does.

Once harvested for peanuts at garage sales and pawn shops—or free for lucky dumpster divers—the Silvertone Model 1484 Twin Twelve amplifier of 1963-’67 graduated to legend status over the past couple decades. Like a lot of ’60s gear with department store catalog origins, Silvertone amps and guitars provided great bang for the buck when they were new. But perhaps no Silvertone product—apart from the company’s Danelectro-built guitars—is as revered as the Twin Twelve. Mudhoney’s Mark Arm and Steve Turner discovered their charms early in their career, and Twin Twelves and their siblings remained backline fixtures for punks, garage rockers, and indie kids. But once the likes of Jack White and Dan Auerbach got on board, the market heated up considerably.
