MUSE article in the October issue of Electronic Musician with Matthew Bellamy discussing "The 2nd Law" album: On the album opener 'Supremacy,' Bellamy's passionate vocal cry morphs into a screaming guitar solo..."That's two [Tech 21] SansAmps with the lead vocal down the middle," Bellamy explains. "The SansAmp on the left had a 45-millisecond delay. The distortion is in stereo, but the main vocal was dry and right down the middle. You get this big-sounding vocal, but it evokes guitar as well because it's going through a SansAmp guitar simulator. It creates this strangely large, chorus distorted sound."more
This video from DunlopTV features the guitar tech of TOOL's longest acting bassist, Justin Chancellor.

On August of 2016, [MusicRadar](http://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/rig-tour-explosions-in-the-sky-641876) did a Rig Tour with Explosions in the Sky, taking a quick look at their gear. On Mark Smith's board, the last pedal in the chain is a Sansamp GT2. > “This is the one I use for the real apexes of our songs. It can just boost a melody so it shoots through in a way that works really well - like when Munaf and Michael are playing really heavy chords on songs like The Only Moment We Were Alone or Greet Death, I play this pedal for the melodies.”more
In [this interview with Premier Guitar magazine](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/22907-metz-alex-edkins-relentless-aggression?page=2), Edkins explains his pedal setup. "I use a Pro Co Turbo RAT, straight up, almost all the time. I sometimes run a SansAmp GT2 to boost the RAT a bit more, and a couple of delays. But that’s it."more

Marnie Stern did an interview in Guitar Player where its revealed: “When you’re trying to accent a lot of notes at once, you want the tone to be clear,” says Stern, who eschews high-gain rigs in favor of a beat-up old Fender Deluxe Reverb overdriven by a SansAmp GT2 pedal (which she also uses as an amp/cab simulator for direct tracking).more
The Tech 21 SansAmp GT2 Tube Amp Emulator costs less than the original Sans Amp, and it's easier to set up. So they compromised on sound quality, right? Not as far as we can tell! GT2 purrs and screams with the same kind of fat, warm, glowing-glass sounds heard in the original, but cost-effective manufacturing brought the price down. You select amp type, modification, and mic placement. Find the tone you want using high and low EQ, set your level, dial up distortion with the drive knob, then hit the "on" switch. The Tech 21 SansAmp GT2 is a truckload of tube amps in just one pedal!
I used a lot DS-1, DS-2, Metal Muff, but this has a place in my pedal board. It is very versatile and always find myself with it, regardless of the guitar or pickup that I'm using.
I found this in a box of junk.... I don't remember buying one so someone must have given it to me years ago. I started using it recently for nasty DI guitar sounds and I really like it. You have to embrace the fact that its not replacing an amp but it has a sound of its own that's pure trash.
