Bluguitar AMP1 Nanotube 100 Guitar Amp
Ok, I have to confess a bias here before I start.
Thomas Blug is a German guitarist, who has for the last couple of decades, built a reputation for having one of the best Guitar tones in the business.
He’s also been a mate of mine for a long long time.
We met first at trade shows in the early ‘90’s when I was demonstrating Takamine and Parker guitars, and he was demonstrating for Hughes & Kettner amps (for whom he was hugely important in the development of their sound)
Later, the company I worked for, took over the distribution of Hughes & Kettner, and Tom and I worked together on sales and demo’s for the UK.
So I know him as an old friend.
I also know that he has 2 of the best ears in the business.
This guy really does know about guitar tones.
So when he announced he was coming to market with what appeared to be a pedal, I was intrigued.
But I needn’t have been, you see,
It’s still an amp.
In fact it’s all amp.
In fact it’s a fully functioning 100 watt amp head, that you can attach straight to a 4 X 12 cabinet and make a proper racket with.
Light, Portable and efficient, yet capable of generating a full 100 Watts of blistering tone, this amp is at home either on stage or in the studio.
Because it’s real.
Don’t get me wrong, I love using my UA plug-ins for mixing down, but when it comes to tracking, there is nothing to beat a real amp.
And remember, it’s not just for the studio, it sounds unbelievable live too.
The Amp One features 4 configurable channels. Clean, Vintage Classic and Modern.
Each of these is switchable and has adjustable Boost and Reverb controls.
The amp also features a Killer speaker simulation output for use in the studio as well as a headphone out.
This tiny package, that can fit easily into Hand luggage or a gig bag, delivers a round, fat bass with crisp, non ‘tinny’ trebles and an overall tone that you’ll recognise immediately as that of a true modern, boutique amp.
Why not give us a ring and arrange to come and demo one in our new ‘Blue Room’ demonstration suite.
