Tech 21

Tech 21 originated when B. Andrew Barta designed his own unique invention to the world--the SansAmp. The creation of the SansAmp was originally conceived for personal use, but is one of the products that has propelled Tech 21 into the music electronics world. Barta started like many industry leaders have started with a background in performance of music, and repair of electronics. With the expertise and motivation along with 10 solid years in exhaustive research the original SansAmp came into being.

Initially Andrew set about trying to market and sell the idea to manufacturers, but they were blind in seeing the potential and impact the product could have. Never in existence before, manufacturers didn't know what to think of this pedal that sported copious reearch in Amp modeling and situation, but one group did and that were the players. Musicians including Mick Jones of Foreigner helped spread the word, and the rest is history as they say.

Decades later Tech 21 offers an incredibly exceptional line of Effect pedals, DI's and outboard preampflication to the music industry. Each Tech 21 product is handbuilt in the USA.

Products by Tech 21 include the Bass Boost Fuzz Pedal, Bass Boost Chorus Pedal, SansAmp Character Series VT Bass DI, SansAmp Bass Driver DI, SansAmp Programmable Bass Driver DI, SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe, VT Bass, VT Bass Deluxe, Red Ripper, and the XXL Bassx.
