Tech 21’s Blonde Deluxe SansAmp Character Series Now Shipping

Tech 21's Blonde Deluxe, from their SansAmp Character Series, is now shipping.

New York City, NY (August 1, 2013) -- Tech 21 has begun shipping a deluxe version of their popular Blonde pedal from the SansAmp Character Series through their Private Stock division. Last year, a deluxe version of their Liverpool pedal sold out quicker than anticipated, and caused a flurry of requests to create a Blonde Deluxe next. Quantities are limited and available directly through Tech 21 only.

The SansAmp Blonde Deluxe features a combination of an all-analog signal path and convenient digital recall. Super simple to operate, changes can easily be made on the fly. You just turn the knobs to a setting you like, double click on a footswitch and it’s saved in that channel. You can tailor and program any six sounds, from sparkly clean to lead boosted tones. The Character control gives you the ability to travel from the ‘50s Fullerton through the tweed, blonde, blackface, and silverface family of amp styles.
Dual inputs allow you to have two instruments on-line and ready to go. With 6 program locations, you can create three custom tones for each input or use all six for a single instrument.
There are four independent, pop-free footswitch actuators and the same controls as its sibling --Drive, Character, Low, Mid, High and Level. The SansAmp Blonde Deluxe can be used as a pre-amp or stomp box with any amp/combo, power amp and speaker cabinet, or direct into any mixing console.There’s a 1/4-inch instrument level input, as well as 1/4” and XLR outputs with selectable levels, and an effects loop. The SansAmp Blonde Deluxe is phantom power operable, or utilizes an optional 9V DC power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2), or 9V battery.
