You could build a sansamp yourself with a soldering iron and parts from radio shack, or whatever. Since moved to a Tubepath head so I don’t use it anymore but it worked great for recording and going to the board.


And of course, the MXR M is the most obvious direct substitute for a sansamp in terms of a rugged, simple, analog stompbox that is pretty sasnamp a targeted direct competitor to the sansamp. I’ve never used a Sansamp, but I own the M and use it all the time.
