American rock tones in a versatile, easily-controlled pedal.
Does a two-faced blonde sound like trouble? Tech 21 hopes so, when those faces are silver and black and this Blonde rocks pure American tone to the stratosphere. Get sparkly, spanky cleans that overdrive with a satisfying low-end rumble that becomes the punchy bark of hard-pushed tweed, maxing out in a fat sizzle of lead-boosted tone. Take the reins and don't spare the emulated Jensens, this Blonde is a wild ride through American rock history.
Each pedal in Tech 21's Character Series is loaded with the tonal DNA for a specific style of guitar amplifier. By simply twisting a few knobs, you can build those sought-after tones or hot rod your own. From rare vintage classics to roaring modern icons, every variation is delivered in the distinctive voicing of that amp style. The intuitive amp-like controls let you get your hands dirty from the get-go to explore decades of blistering tones.
Being a genuine SansAmp, each Character Series pedal is way more than an effect pedal. Each can be used as a stand-alone preamp to drive a power amp, a studio mixer, or a PA system, with the rich SansAmp cabinet emulation that sounds huge-even straight into a computer soundcard. Or plug the Blonde, or any Character Series pedal into your guitar amp to take your tone somewhere extraordinary.
- Level, Mid, Character, Drive, Low, High controls
- Cabinet emulation with bypass
- Standalone preamp can drive a power amp, studio mixer, or PA system

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Blonde V2 Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:
The Blonde provides authentic-sounding tones from several classic Fender amps (including the Blonde) - with the twist of a knob or two.
You can buy a cheap, durable, solid-state amp and get awesome vintage tones. The coolest thing about this to me is that you can skip the quest for the perfect, fancy, finnicky, hard-to-tweak, volume/gain-sensitive, fragile tube-amp. These guys engineered an all-analog solution that is amazing. I got so excited after plugging in this pedal that I bought some books on electronics!
I haven't done this yet - but other reviews/videos claim that you can plug it directly into the PA without even using an amp. And home recording is another great use, from the word on the street - to which I plan to use it.
I like the Fender sound the best, but after using this pedal for only a two weeks, I plan to buy all the Character Series pedals.
I have almost 20 pedals, and this is by far my favorite. Vintage tone with one click.
