In response to the huge success of its previous Geddy Lee collaboration, the MP40, Tech 21 has released the YYZ Shape-shifter Signature SansAmp, which is based on the limited-edition MP40, but with the color scheme and graphics to match Geddy’s existing SansAmp gear.

Besides the pedal's Master Volume, 3-band EQ and Drive controls, you can use the Mix control to set the blend ratio between deep (studio-clean) and drive (gritty bass tube amp tones), while a ‘Tight’ button lends some additional snap to your distorted sound.
