The Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series British V2 overdrive/distortion pedal takes your tone from Bluesbreaker punchy to Plexi crunchy, all the way to '70 Anglo-metal roar. Go from sparkling clean to punchy to dynamic overdrive to sizzling lead using six effective controls (Level, Mid, Character, Drive, Low, and High knobs). As with all the pedals in the Character Series, the British V2 is much more than simple stompbox; you can use it as a preamp or take advantage of built-in, switchable speaker emulation for quiet, hassle-free recording. Put some attitude in your guitar tone with the British V2 pedal!

This pedals excels when using it as it was originally designed for, that is, direct for recording or through a PA. I use it for recording solely. I combine it with amp plugins. I run my guitars in a A/B box, to split the signal into two paths. One signal goes into the Tech 21 with the latter going into one channel of my audio interface, the other signal goes goes into another hi-z input on interface to play through amp plugins. I record both signals at the same time. I'm then able to blend the Tech 21 recordings with any of the various amp plugins I use. Gives the sounds more weight and realism. Often panning hard left and right each sound. Add a bit small room reverb to Tech 21 and voila. Tech 21 was ahead of their time and their analog technology still sounds great.

Prob the most versatile pedal for getting that sweet Marshall sound. Goes from a light Bluesy sound to a " chug chug " in matter of a few twists of the dials. Took me about 10 mins to find exactly what I wanted to hear. I'm very picky on what my pedals do and wow, I'm impressed.
