Loudmouth yobbo tones belt out in this killer Leeds distortion pedal.

The Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Leeds distortion pedal takes its mojo from the most respected amp tones on both sides of the Atlantic. These guitar effects pedals don't just have a single character, they have the whole cast, plot, and curtain call.

The Tech 21 SansAmp Leeds pedal's massive headroom delivers the rich bell-like clean tones that drove the classic UK rock and pop bands of the '70s. Lean into high-gain gear for a bare-knuckle growl that retains plenty of definition. Push Leeds distortion pedal harder and suddenly you are live at Leeds.

The SansAmp guitar effect's Level and Drive controls work like a traditional, well-equipped amp. Low, Mid, and High are active, providing a wider array of tonal possibilities. The Character knob is a continuously-variable control that moves seamlessly between different model voicings, covering vintage, high-gain, and face-melting lead tones. The SansAmp Leeds pedal's Character and Mid controls, and the speaker emulations, are all engineered to personify the specific amplifier traits and speakers associated with each amplifier type.

The SansAmp technology captures the warm, rich, natural tones of the most sought-after tube amplifiers. Within the parameters of each model's particular design, the controls provide you with access to specific tone shaping characteristics within the tube amplifier sound spectrum.

SansAmp products are designed to work seamlessly in both recording and stage environments. They can be used with almost any instrument, for any music style, and for multiple applications. Record directly to tape and disc or enhance previously recorded tracks. For live performances, they can drive a power amp and speakers, augment your existing amplifier setup, or run directly into the mixer of a PA system.

Character Yes!

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Leeds Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

After dabbling with digi-modelers I realized that all only had a couple amps that I thought sounded "real" or that I would ever want to use. I gave this a try after some youtube demo's buy burgerman 666. He plays some actual chords most of the time so I was able to decide to try this. (Most demo's these days are all blues and cockrock solo's and its hard to tell how a rhythm guitar will sound). I like this. All of the sounds are usable to me. It's has very very responsive EQ. I played it though the fx loop on my tube amp. It makes my amp sound fantastic. It responds as well as the tube preamp (Dynamic Warm) but is way more versatile. I like the speaker defeat, but actually like it engaged even when using it with my amp. I have used it recording into the interface it sounds better than my last modeler. I already have a reverb, chorus, tremolo, wah, and fuzzes and distortions etc. It is a bit on the pricey side but for great sounds its worth it. Digi-modelers have more bells and whistles, but if you are just looking for the best amp sounds with versitility, you will probably be satified with one of the character series (or a couple).

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Leeds Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I have played this into my small tube amps effects loop, bipassing my amps preamp. After playing this I sold my Tonelab the next day. I have own an RP255 before that. Those were good units but I personally only found a couple of usable amp modles I liked, the rest I thought sounded grainy or fake. I find all of the sounds on the Leeds character knob usable from clean to high gain. The EQ is super reponsive. I think it sounds just as "warm" as my tube preamp. Now I want to round out the amp sounds I like with the Blonde and Liverpool, but I amp going to try the PSA first. Either way Sansamp has got me locked in.
