Geddy Lee has been performing without onstage amps and speakers since the Test for Echo Tour in 1996, favoring major household appliances instead. Known for using a variety of gear to create interesting layered tones, Geddy has included the SansAmp RBI and/or the SansAmp RPM in his live and studio rigs since 2001.

Wanting to streamline and simplify his gear for new projects, Geddy partnered with Tech 21 in 2016 to design a signature SansAmp, the GED-2112 rackmount. This challenging collaboration involved distilling a rackload of equipment into a single rackspace. It resulted in a new format for Parallel Pre-Amping —having two separate internal pre-amps that run in parallel.

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.”

Following this concept, we adapted the architectural structure to simplify blending the two signal paths. This resulted in a compact, portable and cost-effective alternative, the SansAmp YYZ pedal.

Merging the design of the rackmount and the portability of the pedal, the SansAmp DI-2112 offers yet another format designed to be equally at home on a studio desk-top as well as an amp-top.
