Designed by the iconic German guitarist Thomas Blug alongside professional metal guitarists, the pedal-sized AMP1 Iridium Edition is the ultimate tube-powered amp for the 21st century high gain player, offering any metal sound under the sun. Tailored to give guitarists the best-sounding and most flexible setup ever, in the most easily transportable format ever, the Iridium features four different channels based on legendary metal amps, plus Boost, Reverb, noise gate, and a built-in FX loop for pedals. Put simply, it’s the diminutive cornerstone of a rig that’s as powerful and capable as you need it to be to excel in any musical situation.
This unique high-gain amp in a pedal format delivers tight, characterful sounds, and it is the perfect combination of real tube tone and 100 watts of power in an unrivaled compact and lightweight format. In cooperation with experienced, international metal guitarists, BluGuitar founder and professional guitarist Thomas Blug developed this amp from the ground up, and, unlike the acclaimed AMP1 Mercury Edition, he voiced the AMP1 Iridium Edition uncompromisingly towards modern metal.
Three independent overdrive channels deliver rich and tight distortion sounds that can be changed in gain structure and timbre. Each of these channels offers different kinds of attack, response and dynamics. The modern CLEAN channel with massive headroom and treble reserves delivers transparent sparkling clean sounds, even in conjunction with mid-heavy humbuckers.
The revolutionary Nanotube technology, which is in no way inferior to classic tube amps in terms of sound and feel, power and character, has already set a new standard for guitar amps in AMP1 Mercury Edition. As with the best metal amps, the AMP1 Iridium Edition's specially tuned metal current feedback loop reacts with both the speaker and the Nanotube power amp to deliver the ultimate punch and tight metal low-end.
The concept with a switchable and adjustable boost, reverb, three integrated foot switches and a first-class speaker simulation for recording applications leaves nothing to be desired.
