Liverpool rock tones in a versatile, easily-controlled pedal.

That distinctive diamond grille tone is yours for the tweaking with the Tech 21 Liverpool Distortion Pedal. From the jangle of mop-top pop to the top-boosted growl of mod rock, this amp style has a voice that shook generations. Tuned to deliver the growl of English Alnico Bulldog-style speakers, the CS-LV Liverpool pedal also gets thick with rich, even harmonics as the Character control is pushed harder. Push it to the limit and it will, it will, rock you.

Each effect pedal in the Character Series is loaded with the tonal DNA for a specific style of guitar amplifier. By simply twisting a few knobs, you can build those sought-after tones or hot rod your own. From rare vintage classics to roaring modern icons, every variation is delivered in the distinctive voicing of that amp style. The intuitive amp-like controls let you get your hands dirty from the get-go to explore decades of blistering tones.

Being a genuine SansAmp, each Character Series pedal is way more than a stompbox. Each can be used as a standalone preamp to drive a power amp, a studio mixer, or a PA system, with the rich SansAmp cabinet emulation that sounds huge — even straight into a computer soundcard. Or plug them into your guitar amp to take your tone somewhere special.

I use this live, before my Marshall. It sounds great. I have also used it with the speaker emulation in my home studio, where its excels at providing a realistic direct guitar sound.

    Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Liverpool V2 Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    The tones are superior on this box with good clean chime and killer overdrive gain (all you could want). Very musical. It nails the Vox sound too. I use it as a stomp box on my petal board along with a Wampler Plexi drive and Fulltone Phat boost. Kinda gives me a good variety of OD flavors. The controls are very sensitive on the tech. So it takes a bit dime it in, but it's worth it. Especially the "on the edge" semi clean chime. Glorious.

          Gets various vox sounds direct to my soundcard. I just add a bit of reverb or a room IR to the recorded track and it sounds great. Excellent for Beatles, queen, and general British rock.

          Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Liverpool V2 Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Overall the V-2 is great at helping you find some of those British sounds of the 60's. The controls are placed for easy adjusting, and the labels are easily read. But as Ringo says, It don't come easy. By that I mean you will need to invest some time to find the sound you want. The controls, while very effective, are also rather sensitive and small adjustments can produce some fairly significant sound differences--though that is part of its design. Still, if you put some time into finding your sounds and sweet spots, you'll find the V-2 at your feet a lot. It's a solid pedal.
          I give the Series Liverpool V2 high marks because it truly captures the essence of the 60's.
          While rather simple in appearence, the V-2 is built like a tank on the exterior. The electronics are solidly installed and have held up well to some rough garage practicing and gigging.
          Well, it ain't cheap, but then it ain't plastic either. I'd say it's a good value but remember it just does what it's advertised to do, shape the sound.

          The essence of a classic amp in a pedal.

          By Ken Y

          from PA, USA

          Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Character Series Liverpool V2 Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

          The tweakability of this pedal is extreme. A small knob change an result in a big tone change.
          However, the results are very musical and usable.

          You can go from clean 60's tone to the verge of breakup to heavy crunch.

          Plus I can place it on my pedalboard and basically have a great sounding backup amp through the PA if my main amp has an issue.
          Solid, simple and reliable.
          This pedal includes many features and adjustments that make it a flexible plaform for the ampless player, recording musician or can deliver more flavor for your pedalboard.
