Tech 21 Geddy Lee YYZ Shape-shifter Signature SansAmp Tech 21 has introduced the Geddy Lee YYZ Shape-shifter Signature SansAmp , which follows the previously-released MP40 Limited Edition Signature SansAmp that was designed with the iconic Rush singer and bassist . While the features and functionality are the same , the cosmetics have been changed out of respect for the limited number of MP40s . The colour scheme and graphics are now in alignment with Geddy ’ s other Signature SansAmps : the GED-2112 rackmount , DI-2112 desk-top , and YYZ single footswitch pedal .
The all-analog YYZ Shape-shifter SansAmp builds upon the original YYZ pedal with the addition of a selectable Boost stomp switch that provides a 12dB presence boost for increased top-end distortion . Engaging the Shape-shifter button adds 6dB of Schmegilka on top . Other features include : a Mix control to blend the ratio of high-end studio clean and dirty bass tube amp tones ; Tight button adds definition to notes in cleaner settings and makes distorted tones snappier ; Drive control ; active three-band EQ ; and Master Volume . Operable with 9V alkaline battery ( not included ) or optional DC power supply .
