TECH 21 SANSAMP PSA 2.0 PROGRAMMABLE INSTRUMENT PRE-AMP PEDAL
When Tech 21 originally released the rackmount SansAmp PSA-1 in 1993, it quickly became an indispensable studio and stage staple. It was deployed on countless recordings, worldwide tours, and film soundtracks for multiple applications and instruments, including drums, horns, and even vocals. Unfortunately, as certain key components became unavailable, Tech 21 was forced to retire it. They quickly realized, however, that this sad occasion also presented an opportunity not only to redesign the SansAmp PSA — but to streamline its technology into a pedal. Meet the SansAmp PSA 2.0. It has the same all-analog circuitry (only the programming and memory sections are digital) to deliver punchy, responsive, organic sounds that make any source sound its best. The SansAmp PSA 2.0 provides the same functionality, ease of use, and amazing versatility as its esteemed predecessor.
In the studio, you can use the SansAmp PSA 2.0 to record direct, to spruce up your tracks in mixdown, and to add dimension to any source. Onstage, you can use it as a preamp (plugged, for instance, into a power amp connected to a guitar or bass cab), as an incredible-sounding DI routed directly into a PA system, or as a characterful outboard processor. In addition, the SansAmp PSA 2.0 features a Performance Mode, which turns it into a 3-channel stompbox! As millions of musicians have found, the Tech 21 SansAmp is a tone-shaping beast — your do-it-all DI, preamp, EQ, drive, crunch, and punch machine.
