AMP1 Mercury Edition
The modern-day electric guitarist is more demanding than ever. They demand sounds of the highest tonal integrity, covering everything from crystalline clean through to molten metal, with flexible switching and routing options allowing them to sound their best in any playing situation.
Many guitar amplifiers have tried, and failed, to provide all things to all players; until now. BluGuitar AMP1 delivers a diverse tonal palette, covering everything from warm and rounded jazz to hard-hitting rock, in a professional and portable package. The immense power and character of all of your favourite vintage tube amplifiers has been crammed into a compact road-ready unit that fits inside your glove compartment or gig bag – without compromising on tone.
BluGuitar AMP1 features four amazingly detailed and responsive, fully modifiable channels, whose sounds will take you on a journey through the history of guitar amplification. From Clean to Vintage, to Classic and Modern tones the AMP1 is ready to work with any rig and in whichever musical context you wish to use it. More and more professional guitar players are using the AMP1 including Jennifer Batten, Kat Dyson, Ian Crichton and more.

If you want to use a MIDI system with a MIDI controller of your choice, you can operate AMP1 using the BluGuitar MIDI1 adapter. This turns the FOOT SWITCH socket on AMP1 into a MIDI IN socket. All of AMP1´s functions (Clean - Overdrive, Boost, Reverb and the choice of the three overdrive channels) can be accessed using MIDI programme switching. The MasterVolume, Gain/Clean Volume and PowerSoak can also be switched via MIDI.
The electronic interface is supported by AMP1. No additional cables or power supplies are required.
Every possible switching operation in AMP1 can be sourced using a MIDI Programm change signal. As a result, up to 128 presets are possible.
Allocation is run through AMP1´s MIDI-Learn function.
