Klonz Labs has created a 100 percent analogue Modelling Guitar Amplifier that can be controlled using your smartphone, tablet or MIDI board.
Watch the video below to learn more about this fascinating guitar amplifier that provides a 100 percent to signal path and can be built in a number of different configurations.
One thing you will have to do is provide the tubes which unfortunately are not included within the kits. But if you are interested in only one they are now available over on the Kickstarter website to back priced from $69 upwards.
The world of guitar amps today is divided in two : There are the “modelling” amps, which are amazing digital devices capable to re-create the transfer function of real amps through powerful signal processors. Portable, easy to use, hundreds of sounds on hand, BUT, many people say they’re not exactly “the Real Thing”: the feel, when you play them, is simply not “real”.
There are the traditional tube amps, which didn’t evolve much in the past fifty years, but that, for most of us, have “THE” tone we want. But they’re heavy, the good ones are still expensive, and, unless you’re a rockstar, you can’t carry more than one with you. We put together an Arduino-Based Digital Controller with four Full-Tube Modules: Vintage Pre-Amp, Modern Pre-Amp, Power Amp, Power supply.
