The Tech 21 Power Engine 60 is an all-purpose, multi-function, powered extension cabinet. Packing 60 watts of transparent power, it can be used with any direct recording device or pre-amp, analog or digital, tube or solid state, in stompbox or rackmount formats --including Tech 21's line of SansAmps. When plugging your favorite device into a Power Engine 60, the tone is unaffected. So there's no need to labor over readjusting all your parameters that would otherwise be colored by a conventional amp.
These handsome cabinets perfectly complement Tech 21 Trademark combo amps. The Power Engine 60 will accept XLR and 1/4 inch inputs and includes a balanced XLR output to 'daisy-chain' with other Power Engine 60s. Knowing that not all rooms are created acoustically perfect, you can compensate for less than ideal environments by adjusting the on-board, active three-band EQ.
With ground-independent inputs and output, there’s no limit to how much power you can have. You can chain hundreds of Power Engine 60s together to make a giant wall of power (although some might view that as excessive).
Power Engines can also facilitate stereo configurations -- with a traditional amp or with a pre-amp and stereo processor. Wherever your tones come from, make the Power Engine 60 your destination for portable, pure reproduction.
TECH 21 - GREAT TONE. BUILT RIGHT.
In 1989, after ten years exhaustive research and development with world-class guitar amplifiers, a tired but victorious B. Andrew Barta launched his unique SansAmp. This revolutionary pedal-sized tube amplifier emulator enables musicians to dial in monster tones and patch them directly to a studio mixer or stage PA. Its discrete 100% analog circuitry uses a hyper-realistic tone structure that includes mic and speaker simulation with pre and power amp distortion characteristics. Finally, it was possible to get stunning, consistent tones without brutalizing amps, heaving speaker cabs or futzing with microphones to find that elusive sweet spot.
Instead, the SansAmp delivered all of its mammoth sounds from a pocket-sized pedal.
A decade and a half later, the SansAmp technology has developed into an impressive line of products to cover every application. Each product is still hand-built in the USA using the best possible materials and exclusive components, such as our smooth custom actuators which are licensed to other major manufacturers. Tech 21’s range of products are developed with a critical ear for tonal perfection and an open ear to our customers’ needs.
The sample settings for SansAmp models and guitar and bass amplifiers include such classics as Marshall, Fender, Mesa/Boogie, SVT, and artists like Santana, Metallica, Van Halen and Hendrix. These settings are also a starting point for you to find your own individual tone and style using Tech 21's original products.
