Kurt Cobain’s Tech 21 SansAmp (Original Vintage)

Allegedly, Kurt used a Tech 21 SansAmp as his main distortion pedal in the In Utero era. However, it is important to note that at least during the live performances, he also had a Boss DS-2 on stage.

This means that the SansAmp was likely used just on In Utero songs, while the Boss DS-2 was there for songs from Nevermind and Bleach.

Kurt never used a “SansAmp Classic”, but the original Sansamp without the classic tag.

” The “original” was built from 1989 until 1992, and we added the word “Classic” in 1993 (to this day). There are essentially no differences in SOUND between the two models, although production methods have changed slightly over the years.” – Lloyd Schwartz, Product Manager
