BluGuitar GmbH Saarbrücken/ Germany, February 27th, 2017 – (ictw) – BluGuitar announce the immediate availability of BluBOX, a professional impulse response speaker simulator providing a collection of 16 sought after, perfectly miced virtual speaker cabinets in a sturdy, convenient pedal sized housing featuring a transformer balanced XLR-output and 2 knob-operation. BluGuitar BluBOX is the result of Thomas Blug’s research and effort to offer the guitar players a great sounding „PA feed“ and „direct recording“ solution that works great with any guitar amp.

All electric guitarists looking for the perfect way to mic or to record their amp tone now have one of the simplest and most workable solutions available, that is also setting new standards in sound quality. With over 30 years being a professional session player and touring experience, Thomas Blug has spent a lot of time to select the “go to guitar cabinets” that are basically the industry standard for great guitar sound. These are his very own cabinets heard on numerous music productions Thomas was involved with (from Stewart Copeland, Culture Beat, Snap, No Angels, TicTacToe to members of Deep Purple, Fokus, Simple Minds and many more). Utilising the latest Convolution Technology he then took impulse responses with various microphone positions and mics locking down every sonic detail.

BluGuitar AMP1 - System Complete

AMP1, REMOTE1, LOOPERKIT, FATCAB, NANOCAB and VINTAGE PREMIUM SPEAKER CABLE now shipping

BluGuitar GmbH, Saarbrücken, Dec. 9th, 2015 (ictw) – BluGuitar just announced the AMP1 System to be complete. With the arrival of the NANOCAB and the FATCAB guitar cabinets for the BluGuitar AMP1, the complete analogue guitar tone system is now available.

BluGuitar AMP1 is a professional guitar amp for onstage and studio use. The NANOTUBE 100-watt power amp delivers enormous sound pressure levels for the personal tonal palette just like a boutique tube amp.
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). AMP1 also features switchable and adjustable Boost and Reverb controls, easy to control with three integrated footswitches, a truly outstanding Speaker Simulation for its recording or headphones output, providing all the options expected from a modern, boutique tube amp. BTW: Legendary Uli Jon Roth and also extraordinary Jennifer Batten are just 2 from a range of very happy AMP1 players.

BluGuitar REMOTE1 foot controller makes the entire functionality of AMP1 directly accessible. Any setting can be stored into one of the 36 presets, organised in 4 banks with 9 Presets each. With the built in MIDI-out, guitar players also can switch programs of external MIDI-FX-devices simultaneously.

The optional LOOPERKIT expands the BluGuitar AMP1 system with 4 independent true-bypass-relais-Loops for including analog effects pedals. Each REMOTE1 preset can address the loops individually and combine those loops with any AMP1 settings. This makes the typical pedal board “tapdancing” a thing of the past.

Just in: BluGuitar FATCAB 1 x 12“ Guitar Cabinet
The BluGuitar FATCAB offers what was virtually impossible until now: the tone and feel of that classic 4 x 12” cabinet: tight bass response, lightning fast attack in the mid range and smooth, silky treble in a 1 x 12“ format. Perfectly suited for small and big stages, the FATCAB’s specially designed speaker delivers defined and dynamic bass response even at lower volume levels, as well as a tight and smooth tone with strong low mids when cranked. The specially designed speaker itself in conjunction with the extra thick basket weave grill cloth always guarantees for a well balanced guitar tone with a shimmering high end.

Just in: BluGuitar NANOCAB 1x 12“ Guitar Cabinet
BluGuitar NANOCAB is the 1x12” cabinet with the smallest possible footprint yet delivering a huge sound that sets the standard in compact cabinets.
Inspired by the great performance of the FATCAB, Thomas designed an even smaller, more focussed, yet full sounding cabinet as the perfect companion for the AMP1. The size of the cabinet, its depth, width and the size of its bass-reflex-system have been meticulously adjusted for perfect performance. The perfect punchy rock sound only works with a closed cabinet construction, but NANOCAB offers the additional option of opening the cabinet manually for a bluesier open back tone. For more tonal warmth the speaker has been mounted to the front baffle from the rear and is covered with an extra thick basket weave grill cloth. NANOCAB produces huge tone with unexpected deep bass and is also the perfect cabinet for the living room at home as it unfolds its tonal quality already at very low volume. NANOCAB even fits into a suitcase and can be carried on a train, or even on a motor bike.

Musikmesse 2015: BluGuitar unveils
new line of Guitar Cabinets

New BluGuitar products and Live Performances with Thomas Blug

Fatcab Nanocab 2015

BluGuitar GmbH, Saarbrücken/ Frankfurt, April 9th, 2015 (ictw) – At the Musikmesse Frankfurt (April 15th – April 18th, 2015) BluGuitar unveils the new line of BluGuitar guitar cabinets. BluGuitar NANOCAB and BluGuitar FATCAB are the perfect companions for the innovative BluGuitar AMP1 amplifier – and can be experienced live with Thomas Blug on the AGORA Stage, twice a day – appropriately loud in the BluGuitar Rockmobile AG 02, and toned down in Hall 4.0 at booth H16.

BluGuitar FATCAB 1 x 12“ Guitar Cabinet
The BluGuitar FATCAB offers what was virtually impossible until now: the tone and feel of that classic 4 x 12” cabinet: tight bass response, lightning fast attack in the mid range and smooth, silky treble in a 1 x 12“ format. Perfectly suited for smaller stages and clubs. The BluGuitar FATCAB is the result of Thomas’ continuous research to reproduce the character of sound delivered by a classic 4x12” cabinet with a significantly more compact 1x12” design. Continous fine tuning during numerous tours and concerts, Thomas was finally able to achieve this. FATCAB hosts just one single speaker that reaches the critical perfect operating point much faster, which results in a very lively tone. With its Thiele Small Bass-Reflex-System and its solid high quality cabinet design FATCAB delivers very defined and dynamic bass response usually found only in 4x12” cabinet designs – even at lower volume levels. But of course you can also crank FATCAB for tight and smooth tone with strong low mids as well. The speaker itself in conjunction with the extra thick Basket Weave grill cloth always guarantees for well balanced guitar tone with a shimmering high end.

BluGuitar NANOCAB 1x 12“ Guitar Cabinet
BluGuitar NANOCAB is the 1x12” cabinet with the smallest possible footprint yet delivering a huge sound that sets the standard in compact cabinets.
Inspired by the great performance of the FATCAB, Thomas did not want to stop there and designed an even smaller yet full sounding cabinet as the perfect companion for the AMP1.
There was no question regarding the choice of speaker – only a 12” chassis is capable of producing the kind sound suitable for AMP1. The size of the cabinet, its depth, width and the size of its bass-reflex-system have been meticulously adjusted for perfect performance. The perfect punchy rock sound only works with a closed cabinet construction, but NANOCAB offers the additional option of opening the cabinet manually for more tonal options. To achieve more tonal warmth the speaker has been mounted to the front baffle from the rear and is covered with an extra thick basket-weave grill cloth. Regardless of musical style - Clean, Crunch to High Gain, Jazz, Blues or Rock – the combination of the AMP1 and NANOCAB always delivers! NANOCAB produces huge tone even with unexpected deep bass. By the way, NANOCAB is also the perfect cabinet for the living room at home as it unfolds its full tonal quality already at very low volume. NANOCAB even fits into a suit case and can be carried on a train, or even on a motor bike.

Pricing and availability

BluGuitar NANOCAB and BluGuitar FATCAB are available from September 2015 for Euro 449,- for the NANOCAB and Euro 559,- for the FATCAB.
