New Toys: Tech 21 Frank Bello Street Driver 48 Signature SansAmp

Long-time Tech 21 user Frank Bello finally has his weapon of choice: the SansAmp Street Driver 48 DI. He uses it for Anthrax and all his solo work. The Frank Bello Street Driver 48 features a Dirt switch for extra gain, overdrive, and a Filth switch for extra top-end sizzle. Controls include Drive for gain and overdrive, Low & High active EQ, and Output Level.

This SansAmp DI is voiced for Frank's needs and most importantly it was designed to be simple to operate. There are not a lot of knobs and switches or extra bells & whistles. He wanted players to be able to get a great sound fast:  whether it’s for metal or R&B or progressive Rock music, whether the player is a novice or expert, young or older.

Like all Tech 21 Signature SansAmps, the Frank Bello Street Driver 48 offers his core sounds and the versatility for many different styles. It runs on an included 9-VDC universal, auto-switching power supply with heavy-duty braided cord and interchangeable international plugs for use anywhere in the world.

Other features include: 1/4-inch and XLR Outputs, rugged all-metal housing. It measures 3.75”L x 4.75”W x 2.0”H.
