Tech 21 Sansamp Blonde Overdrive

The Tech 21 Sansamp Blonde Overdrive pedal can supply both those great blonde tones you want plus the blackface tones you’ve always desired.  This pedal is part of the Tech 21 Character Series, and it features many throwbacks to the early days of guitar tones, especially rock and roll tones, when that big bottom sound was in.  tech-21-sansamp-blonde-overdriveBack then, to get more overdrive, guitar players had to turn their amps way up—there was no master volume control on those early American amplifiers, so it all had to come from the guitar.  The Sansamp Blonde harkens back to that time, putting what Tech 21 considered “true American tone” back into the pedal without making the pedal expensive or unresponsive.

The Sansamp Blonde gives you different controls for your lows, highs, level, mid, character, and drive.  It’s a reasonably priced amp for what you get, coming in at $149.  However, if you’re looking for a cool amp that brings in some old school rock and roll tones without any type of modern distortion or tone, then the Sansamp Blonde Overdrive is exactly what you want.  It brings this classic sounds back with a vengeance, and it can give you tones that no other overdrive can.
