Have you ever wanted to play your tube amplifier at home but don’t fancy disturbing your neighbours? How about connecting your amp straight into your interface? Well, now you can thanks to the ‘Torpedo Captor’ from Two Notes!

The Torpedo Captor is a reactive load box, DI box, attenuator and speaker sim all in one fan-cooled box! Inspired by the company’s hugely popular ‘Torpedo Reload’, the Torpedo Captor is the definitive solution for quietening your amp’s volume without sacrificing tone, alongside sending your amp’s true tone to a PA or recording rig.

Designed for amps up to a maximum of 100 watts, the Torpedo Captor’s -20db attenuator enables cranked tone at bedroom friendly volumes, as well as integrated speaker simulation so you can capture the raw power and intensity of your amp to your chosen DAW, without the need to mic your cab!

Two Notes has become infamous for designing the most accurate and feature-laden load boxes in the world. Your beloved amp will truly believe it’s connected to a speaker cabinet!

Analogue Speaker Sim


authentic, detailed & focused toneWhen using the Captor in a live scenario to feed the PA, you’ll need to polish the tone emanating from your amp before it reaches the PA. The Captor’s analogue speaker simulation is taken from the celebrated ‘Le Preamp’ series. This will add an authentic, detailed and focused tone for your monitor on FOH, all whilst keeping a low volume on stage.

Add a Torpedo C.A.B. M with its wide selection of virtual cabinets for an unbeatable direct solution.

Two Notes Torpedo Captor 8 Compact Loadbox and Amp DI, 8 Ohms, 100W RMS, Fan Cooled is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price online I can't fault the product or delivery service. The price was by far the cheapest I could find anywhere. I really didn't expect somewhere like scan to sell any guitar based products. Next time I need anything for music recording I'll check scan first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Built like a tank and takes up very little real estate on the desk top. The included software Wall of Sound is outstanding and puts this loadbox in its own ballpark as you have access (small fee per purchase) to a plethora of speaker cabs and reverb effects. Very happy with the sound quality for recording too. I bought the 4-Ohm version as well. Highly recommended..
