THIS IS THOMAS BLUG. THIS IS AMP1!
OK, let's get one thing clear… This is not an effects pedal!!
This really is a full blown 100 watt amp that can be attached to a 4 X12 cab and make just as much racket as your average Marshall 100 watt stack…. However, there is one vital difference….
Thomas has been known throughout the Music Industry for many years now. His love of vintage Stratocasters is well documented and he is an authority on Amp tone, having been hired for many years by leading amp companies to 'voice' their amplifiers.
He is a busy, talented guitarist who plays all sorts of varieties of music from Pop music to full blown tours celebrating the music of Jimi Hendrix. He is no stranger to clubs, pubs and Arenas, and has been touring for many years.
All this then, qualifies him to invent an amp like this.
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.
The first time I heard it in the studio, I immediately removed all the other Amps, Amp sims, modelling units etc, because this, is the best I have ever used.
Doesn't matter whether you're looking for a cool jazz tone or a sultry blues overdrive, a Rockabilly twang to a screaming Rock lead, you can get it all here…..
Thomas's dream was to put the immense power and character of vintage tube amplifiers into one small package that would fit into any glove compartment or gig bag - without compromising on the tones. Mission accomplished!
VERSATILE AND LOUD
AMP1 is designed for professional use onstage and in the studio. The NANOTUBE 100-watt power amp delivers your own tonal palette with the best tube quality and enormous sound pressure levels. Four amazing, modifiable channels will take you on a stunning journey through the history of guitar amplification (from Clean to Vintage to Classic and Modern tones), and AMP1 also features switchable and adjustable Boost and Reverb controls, three integrated footswitches, a truly outstanding Speaker Simulation output for recording, and a headphone output, giving you all the options you would expect from a modern, boutique tube amp.
You can take your AMP1 with you wherever you are – it fits right in your gigbag. It’s incredibly compact and very light. Just to make everything that little bit quicker before and after the gig, AMP1 can be securely attached to (and then removed from) a single handle on your pedalboard or amp cab thanks to EASYLOCK – the magnetic attachment system from BluGuitar®. With the REMOTE1 floor control, you can build AMP1 into a fully programmable amp system – including adjustable PowerSoak, MASTER, VOLUME (CLEAN CHANNEL), GAIN (OVERDRIVE CHANNELS) and MIDI functions. AMP1 offers you the ultimate in practicality and tonal flexibility.
AMP1 will make you stand out from the crowd. It offers you every possibility to find your own personal tone without having to get lost in a jungle of countless functions. If you’re a player who needs just two basic sounds, then AMP1 is your perfect match. Should you want more sounds to play with, though, REMOTE1 offers a bunch of extra possibilities. Plus, if you want to integrate your favourite pedals into your AMP1 setup, use the REMOTE1 with the LOOPERKIT to create a fully programmable switching system featuring four true bypass relay loops. You decide what you need. My tip: less is often more!
Only with ‘your tone’ you will become one with your guitar. Find it, and you’ll be truly happy. You’ll find that it’s not just AMP1’s tones that inspire you, but that its playing feel will also draw you in – until you’re hooked! AMP1’s direct response, fat bass that never muddies, trebles that never get tinny and annoying, and almost unfathomable depth of tone allow you to become one with your guitar. With AMP1 and its Custom Controls you have everything you need to find your own tone!
