The YYZ Shape-shifter SansAmp includes the addition of a selectable Boost stomp switch, providing a 12dB presence boost for increased top-end distortion. Engaging the Shape-shifter button adds 6dB of Schmegilka on top, which, according to Geddy, “is an indefinable thing of awesomeness!”

• All analog SansAmp technology enables you to record directly and enhance previously recorded tracks. For live performances, the YYZ Shape-shifter can drive a power amp and speakers, augment your existing amplifier set-up, or run directly into the mixer of a PA system.

• Mix control to blend the ratio of high-end studio clean (Deep) and dirty bass tube amp tones (Drive).

• Tight button to add definition to your notes in cleaner settings and make distorted tones snappier.

• Boost / Shape-shifter selectable Boost function deviates from the norm. It provides a 12dB presence boost for increased top-end distortion. Kick in the Shape-shifter button, and get 6dB of Schmegilka on top, which, according to Geddy “is an indefinable thing of awesomeness!”

• Drive adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive, similar to when the output section of a tube amp is being pushed.

• Active 3-band EQ.

• Master volume.

• Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional DC power supply, Tech 21 model #DC9 (or former models #DC2 or #DC4).
Sample settings in the owner’s manual include:

• Geddy Lee’s Personal Setting
• Rickenbacker Shape-shifter
• Camera Eye
• Red Barchetta
• Warm Tube/Studio
• Bi-amped Overdrive

From a Backline of Amps, Speakers and Major Household Appliances to a Full Line of Amazing Products.

In 1996, Geddy Lee began performing without onstage amps and speakers, favoring major household appliances instead. He relied on an intricate system of off-stage gear, which included the SansAmp RBI and/or SansAmp RPM. After the R40 tour, Geddy wanted to streamline his gear for new projects and partnered with Tech 21 to design a Signature SansAmp, the GED-2112. This challenging collaboration involved distilling a rackload of equipment into a single rackspace. According to Geddy, “The GED-2112 is really a continuation of my long-time approach to bass tone. A ‘deep clean’ tone coupled with the ‘edgy crunch’ I get from the SansAmp RPM now all in one box.”

No matter which Geddy Lee Signature SansAmp you choose, each offers Geddy’s core sound and the versatility for many different styles.
