I sold my old Line6 digital guitar processor and got the Ampero one and I have been very happy with it. It’s a really compact size unit (the old Line6 was huge and did’t fit a bag) and it’s easy to take it with you to a band practise. I plug the Ampero straight to a mixer and PA cabinets and it sounds great. You don’t really have to modify any of the preset sounds or mix it, everything blends in to the other instruments (bass, keyboard and drums). Most of the presets are usable. You’ve got all you need from distortion to clean sounds.
Still if you want to tweak it, there are plenty of choices and the attached good sized screen works really nice. You can easily build your own sounds or adjust the presets. Me, I like to keep it simple and I really appreciate the fact that the presets are sounding great and are well balanced.
The build in drum machine is great and it is easy to use as anyting with a clear UI. I like to practise with the Ampero at home with headphones on.
The build quality of this thing is good. You don’t have to worry that it breaks. Ok, the included small foot ”volume” pedal is not the greatest but even that gets the job done. There is not many outputs but for my use it’s fine. I use a single instrument cable to connect this mono to the mixer.
I’m happy with the sound. It’s not like the new processors that cost 1500€ but hey with the price tag under 300€ this one is well worth the money.


Very good multiFX/amp sim
DusanM 01.07.2020
I bought this unit based on video demos i saw. I was impressed with GUI When I plugged it in for the first time. Controls are very intuitive and I didn't even need a manual for working with the unit. Only one thing that I needed to search in manual was changing effect blocks order. Btw, manual is not included in the box, so you need to download it or print it yourself from hotone webpage. In terms of sounds I don't find factory presets sounding that good, so it takes some time to tweak each block and find what sounds good for you. Only one thing I don't like is that you set only globally functions of footswitches. For example you cannot set FS1 for switching on/off different FX block for different patches.


Very nice processor!
Alezzz 04.05.2021
I use the device mainly at home. On a wide variety of equipment, and with a personal computer through monitors, and through a variety of speaker systems of all sizes. On everything from the smallest to very large systems - I can set up a very good sound.

I had many different processors, line6 m series, vox, zoom g5 ms70, m-audio black box. If you need a processor that is not expensive, with IR, looper, and overall good and modern sounding, this is the choice for you.

On the plus side, the amp simulators are great, even the fuzz sounds good.
From the minuses - the processor is of course not a competitor to top-end ones, there is no such dynamics on overdrive, but if you know what you want from the sound in a particular patch - you'll be able to adjust it.

As a whole - it does everything it's supposed to do. On the table, in the pedalboard, it doesn't take up much space. In the pedalboard by the way can be very well placed anywhere in the circuit.
When connected to the computer, using it as a sound card, looper retains its functionality, which is also definitely good.
Very happy with the purchase, thanks Thomann.
