New York-based manufacturer Tech 21 has announced a new expansion of its enduring SansAmp range, with the Character Plus Series – a range of four pedals that attempt to bottle iconic amp and effect combinations. 

Among the all-analog range is the Screaming Blonde, which tackles a tonal combo of Fender and Tube Screamer-style sounds; the English Muffy, which pairs a vintage HiWatt style sound with a Big Muff-like fuzz; the Fuzzy Brit, which is takes its cues from a Marshall and Fuzzface blend; and, finally, the Mop Top Liverpool, which as you might guess, is distinctly Beatles-flavored – melding a Vox AC30-esque tone and Rangemaster-style Boost.
