Nice "Swiss knife" cheap

By Johnny R, 09/10/2014
Characteristics? everybody know: it's a cheap copy of the Tech 21 Sansamp GT2.


Very simple configuration, there is no tampering with 50,000 buttons in all directions for a clean sound.
Manual well enough.


The main course we attack: is this sound or not?


Of 27 possible configurations, I do not remember as 9, but all are very good in my opinion.
Let us not forget that we are talking about a device with 26 euros .......

Ultimately, one has 3 switches: one for the type of amp, 1 for the level / type of gain, one for positioning the mic facing the amp ..... it is the latter which m 'left on my hunger, I think, only the "classic" sounds natural position, the other 2 (center & off axis) quickly compress the sound, making all chemical suite, very "low-end transistors" .. ... or very "hyper scooped mids" ...... to play thrash metal of modern hyper death, it may have an interest may be at the limit ..... .....

The switch "ground lift"? I frankly do not know what it is ..... but I have no problem with ground loop, so ......

No "pop" when pressing the foot switch, however the sliding switches can generate sound .....

Another "detail": the gain can be MONSTROUS! I wonder interest to achieve such a level of saturation? knob at 9 am, it's already big guy ..... beyond noon, it gets crazy. And the breath becomes problematic.

In summary, the emulation of amps is relatively realistic "spirit" ..... we recover a Fender, Marshall or Mesa character.

The types of saturations (hot, hi-gain, clean) is a real benefit.
The knobs all have a real impact. Their fault is that they are a bit small.
The foot switch seems a bit fragile. It is clear that this is not the Boss ......

The sounds used (9) are not all bad, after all also depends on what you plug this device ...... I plug it into an AMT TC-3, which is very transparent, and that the nickel ..... I made a complete amp like a shoebox.

We're going a pretty clean clean (missing a reverb), through a nice little crunch to a dito phew ..... sound can really be VERY VERY HEAVY.

The pros:
Prices, sound reproduction, ease of use.

The -:
The blast high gain, the switch "Mic" usefulness questionable, the general lack of strength (but it will if you're not too nags). Maybe mount a real switch in metal stand would be a good mod ..... and cheap too .....

Note that I got better sound by putting a pedal "buffered" before ..... impedance can be a story or whatever .....


Well, finally, a good little device overall, with a Q / P pretty amazing .... I never tested the real GT2, which however looks best on the demos, but the price gap n is really not justified ..... GT2 is still seven times more expensive, but it is far from being 7 times better .....

I tried some multi-effects, I never hung, it always sounded very "cartoonish" ..... and most importantly, what's the point of offering 100, 200 different sounds if ultimately they are people to only 10 good?
There at least, there's no looking 100 take ages to make it sound!

So great machine for a beginner or intermediate who knows nothing distortion and overdrive and do not know what to buy too, nice backup device, or to make various sound experiences ..... and then 26 euros, you risk not much .....

In any case, it makes you want to buy the real GT2 occas' for example .....

I would do without this choice problem.

subtle adjustment .....

we like the EQ, and distortion too METAL

jack, xlr

5 years
finally, she serves as a filter to uen groovebox, who would have thought!

The PDAL is a Sino-Teutonic CLNE the Tech21 SansAmp. German design, made in China.
And lucky, as I have a genuine SansAmp GT2, I was easily able to compare guitar amp and sound card PC equal.
No need to procrastinate, the GDI 21 pales in comparison with the MODEL.
The Behringer has for her and one XLR ground lift switch as well. Normal output jack, I felt no diffrence so I guess the Gnd Lift is a power supply for the XLR fantme.
Plastic knobs and low end. Internal power supply crap, like most Behringer.


In use, well, it's like his counterpart at Tech21. In fact, I recommend the doc Tlcharger dernire this because it is more complte the examples of sounds than Behringer.
I am not an anti-Behringer but we reconnatre than a dozen pedals of this brand I had (all sold since), I had problem with the quality of 3 / 4 of them is to be dballage in the weeks following their purchase: that spit knobs, switch to lche especially big problem of buzz and breath with a power supply, or even a Maxon Powerplant premium. The power supplies are really bad for Behringer and trs often a problem of mass which makes them unusable.
For comparison, I use more than Maxon branches under the same conditions, and it has great value: high quality sound and no breath.


Having also a Bassman possd two pedals that are supposed to formulate, I can say that none of it well simulates this amp. Even if the grain and tone are not COPIS prs, is the legalization diffrent and warmth of his no.
To speak of the Behringer SPECIFICATIONS from the Tech21, trs is simple: until 1 / 4 of the drive, it is virtually the same.
Between 1 / 4 and 1 / 2, the Tech21 is doing much better in terms of saturation and clarity of sound.
APRS 1 / 2, I do not know, the Behringer breath so as to be unworkable in any fawn.
I prcise I play on Kinman Noiseless Blues pickups, microphones plutt premium and my Start makes no noise part of the channel of an amplifier drive lamps or elsewhere on the SansAmp ...


Keep your dough and buy a real pedals. Your neighbors, your ears and your guitar will thank you. I lost 25 euros, so be it.
Less comprehensive and more expensive, I would advise the AMT Tweed Sound for the Bassman and the Marshall for the M1, or R1 for Mesa. The at least, almost sounds like a real, better than the Tech21 Blonde / British / California and Boss FBM-1 and ST-2 equivalents in any case.

I'm amazed

See below, but more than a DI box, it can also serve as simulated amp and distortion pedal


While there, hat! It looks pretty solid (heavier than most Behringer pedals), the button style stomp is pretty big and good.
But the simplicity of use and booklet (English and Chinese) is very clear and lets look at what gives some models.
Attention on a VERY good sound, turn the volume to half, it gives off really.


Personally, I do not like the sound metal, thus, the simulated calif high gain I use it.
on the other hand, with Tweed, clean and classic (all the buttons down) the drive to level 0 and half, I love !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fender clean sound to it really makes my telecaster and tribute to his neck pickup, restoring its twang.
By adding the Drive, the distortion is very present and the plexiglass is simultaneously really terrible.
I put only 8 because I think the distortion becomes too quick enough there, but it will appeal to metalheads.
I use it since early May (not long) on ​​a mixing desk in repeated more than a concert and DI output, g need to break my head, the engineer did everything in my place volume level. Trankil!


As mentioned earlier, I do not use it for a long time, but I'm amazed.
I did not want to ruin me an amp and a DI box would do the trick.
For 29 € I am very satisfied.
Having already Behriger 2 pedals, I love this brand.
It makes no great noise, looks cheap (and probably is) but I've never had any problems with this brand unlike other large (boss, digitech, Danelectro not to quote them)
Yes, I will ever be happy with this choice.
I have some stage experience and many gear used, one thing to say: do not read these am-called pro who criticize Behringer products that are not expensive, not so good. As in everything, like it or not, then do according to your taste ............ me, I chose
