J
The best feeling (& sounding) Marshall style amp I’ve played
Jellodog 18.09.2021
I’m totally in love with this amp. I've been after Marshall tones for a while and finally decided to buy the Amp1. I've been researching 'Marshall in a box' pedals for a few months but ultimately decided that I'd rather just have a full amp to keep things simple.

It's definitely a bright amp, but I read about the bright cap behaviour and I'm finding it pretty manageable with the treble knob at 3-ish (and the custom controls at half-way or below). Playing with a strat-style guitar (EBMM Cutlass) this thing screams.

My little rig includes the Amp1 ME, my Barefaced 1x12 cab with Neo Creamback and a Strymon Volante. That's it.

I'm so happy with this thing that I want to write Thomas Blug a thank-you letter.

Almost perfect
Sabbathman 25.05.2020
This pedal sized amp is a great deal. It responds like an amp, feels like an amp, sounds like an amp and it doesn't weight like an amp. It is very versatile, has nice full cleans, very nice vintage and classic tones, although the modern channel is a little bit compressed. Not a huge deal though and still very nice sounding. You have a great sound with only the amp. With some quality pedals you can make it perfect and it handles pedals very very well. I'm really happy with this purchase.

Not the perfect sound I expected
Mries 04.05.2019
I received my BluGuitar Amp1 a couple of days ago. And I have looked forward to it. The youtube clips where very convinsing, and the JTM45 sounded amazing.
I have plugged it in on a cabinet with V30 speaker, as adviced by Thomas. But the sounds where not my thing. The clean-, vintage- and classic channel had to much high frequencies. I compared it mostly with a fender supersonic 60, which is a very treble amp. The high frequencies hurt to my ears. Funny is that lowering the mids had most effect on this, more than lowering the treble. I also attached it to the speaker of a combo to be sure it was not the cabinet. Same sound.
The sound of the vintage channel gets much better when you open the gain. It rolls off lots of spiky highs.
But I like my amps for much headroom, very clean. And my drives are from pedals. The headroom of the clean and vintage channels is not enough, it compresses the OD's, I loose to much of the dynamics that I have with a 50+ tube amp.

The concept is great, I was loving the idea to have such a small top, combined with a nanocab, for gigging, jam sessions etc.
But, as I prefer a good sound over light travelling, I will send it back.


Btw. I did not really like the small knobs on the side, difficult to set them. On the other hand, the idea is that this is a one time setup, and you leave it there. But when you are searching for a good sound for initial setup it is not that handy.

SMALL, LIGHT AND CONVIENIENT - ANALOGUE! - SOUNDS AMAZING AND UNREAL
MONKEY 7 29.04.2021
Why lug a huge amp head around when you can purchase one of these. Thomas Blug is a genius and going to revolutionize the design of future amps and convienience.

I love the tones of this nano-tube amp and the channels you can choice between. The FX loop works perfectly with my FX unit .

The three overdrive sounds cover the full gamut of vintage, classic and modern distortion, from 60s Marshall Plexi crunch to the thick harmonic filth demanded for modern metal.

Flexibility aside, the Amp 1’s valve-driven 100-watt power amp is still its biggest attribute: plugged into a good 4x12 it sounds huge, with all the dynamic response you’d expect from valves and volume to spare. It’s almost unreal to hear so much tone coming from a package weighing just over a kilo.
