Find the Tone that Represents Your Unique Style with the Tech 21 SansAmp Character Plus - Mop Top Liverpool

The original SansAmp Character Series was introduced in 2008. These pedals commemorated a range of eras within specific amplifier personalities, of which there were 8 in total. By simply twisting a few knobs, you could build the most sought-after tones and hot rod your own. From rare vintage classics to roaring modern icons, every variation was delivered in their own distinctive voicings.

Tech 21 wanted to broaden the range of tonal options and took that concept a step further to include additional building blocks. Because there’s a certain chemistry between specific pairings that will forever be a part of history. Think Ralph & Alice. Fred & Wilma. Lucy & Ricky. Abbott & Costello. Bonnie & Clyde. They all made a lot of noise and they all had a lot of fun!

With an abundance of knob controls, the 2-channel Character Plus Series pedals are easy to use. You can explore and tailor various eras within each amp style simply by turning a knob. Each continuously-variable Character control sweeps through an entire tonal range, spanning decades of sounds. The Character, EQ controls and speaker simulation are individually voiced to reflect the specific personality traits inherent in each amp style.

Featuring built-in speaker/cab sim, the 100% analog SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation technology encompasses the entire signal chain, from pre-amp to power amp to speaker simulation. An integral part of the circuitry, the SansAmp speaker simulation will complement any type of guitar or bass speaker cabinet system. You can also place an external IR after a SansAmp to give additional flavor if you so desire. The SansAmp speaker sim is designed and individually tailored for a smooth, even response as would be achieved by a multiply-mic'd cabinet –without peaks, valleys, and notches associated with single miking and many IRs.

Additionally, each of these multi-function pedals is like having a stompbox within a stompbox. (BOGO anyone?) You can use the amp emulation on its own or just the effect on its own.

The Character Plus Series pedals offer significant flexibility and value at a nominal price. Whether you’re frugal or extravagant, you can focus on the one that is your personal favorite or collect them all –and trade them with your friends!

Mop Top Liverpool = Vox-style + Rangemaster Booster-style

Range of Settings with CHAR A:

  • Below 12 o’clock serves up the tone of a Top Boost with controls set to 9:00, for a throatier clean sound and warm overdriven tones.
  • Advancing towards 12 o’clock brings in classic British mids.
  • Passing 12 o’clock increases clarity to crunchy and overdriven tones.
  • Full up adds the upper mid crackle of pushed Alnico speakers.

Range of Settings with CHAR B:

  • Below 12 o’clock serves up the tone of a Top Boost with controls set to 3:00, for full clean sound with lots of bass and highs.
  • Advancing towards 12 o’clock brings in classic British mids.
  • Passing 12 o’clock brings in the vocal quality of “Woman Tone.”
  • Full up boosts the low mids for non-Top Boost AC30-style tone.

Independent Boost Section:

The Mop Top Liverpool uniquely offers 2 boosts in one knob:

  • At 12 o’clock, it’s flat.
  • Up to 12dB Treble Boost when you turn clockwise for a brighter, louder, edgier ‘60s and ‘70s vintage vibe.
  • Up to 12dB Mid-Range Boost when you turn counter-clockwise, which tightens up distortion, rhythm and lead tones for more modern vibes.
