THIS IS THOMAS BLUG. THIS IS AMP1!The world needs a smart new guitar amp that can surpass all the expectations of the modern-day guitarist who demands the highest in tonal integrity. With that in mind, Thomas Blug and an experienced team have worked together to design, develop and release AMP1.
AMP1 delivers a wide tonal palette, from jazz to metal, in professional quality. Thomas’s dream was to put the immense power and character of vintage tube amplifiers into one small package that would fit into any glove compartment or gigbag – without compromising on the tones. Mission accomplished!

VERSATILE AND LOUD
AMP1 is designed for professional use onstage and in the studio. The NANOTUBE 100-watt power amp delivers your own tonal palette with the best tube quality and enormous sound pressure levels.
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), and AMP1 also features switchable and adjustable Boost and Reverb controls, three integrated footswitches, a truly outstanding Speaker Simulation output for recording, and a headphone output, giving you all the options you would expect from a modern, boutique tube amp.
You can take your AMP1 with you wherever you are – it fits right in your gigbag. It’s incredibly compact and very light. Just to make everything that little bit quicker before and after the gig, AMP1 can be securely attached to (and then removed from) a single handle on your pedalboard or amp cab thanks to EASYLOCK – the magnetic attachment system from BluGuitar®. With the REMOTE1 floor control, you can build AMP1 into a fully programmable amp system – including adjustable PowerSoak, MASTER, VOLUME (CLEAN CHANNEL), GAIN (OVERDRIVE CHANNELS) and MIDI functions. AMP1 offers you the ultimate in practicality and tonal flexibility.
AMP1 will make you stand out from the crowd. It offers you every possibility to find your own personal tone without having to get lost in a jungle of countless functions.
If you’re a player who needs just two basic sounds, then AMP1 is your perfect match. Should you want more sounds to play with, though, REMOTE1 offers a bunch of extra possibilities. Plus, if you want to integrate your favourite pedals into your AMP1 setup, use the REMOTE1 with the LOOPERKIT to create a fully programmable switching system featuring four true bypass relay loops. You decide what you need. My tip: less is often more! 😉
Only with ‘your tone’ you will become one with your guitar. Find it, and you’ll be truly happy. You’ll find that it’s not just AMP1’s tones that inspire you, but that its playing feel will also draw you in – until you’re hooked! AMP1’s direct response, fat bass that never muddies, trebles that never get tinny and annoying, and almost unfathomable depth of tone allow you to become one with your guitar. With AMP1 and its Custom Controls you have everything you need to find your own tone!

More sounds, more control – REMOTE1
Using the optional REMOTE1 foot pedal, all of AMP1’s functions can be directly selected via 9 switches and can be stored in 4 Banks (with 9 Presets each). Consistent with the Presets, REMOTE1’s MIDI out can be used to switch programmes on external MIDI-capable effect devices. Alternatively, the optional MIDI1 Adapter allows players to control AMP1 with any MIDI foot pedal. For players who want to integrate their favourite FX pedals into the AMP1 guitar system, the optional Looper-Kit extension (featuring four true bypass relay loops) is available, making tap dancing and sound loss on the pedalboard a thing of the past.
REMOTE1 is the convenient foot controller with direct access to all of AMP1’s functions, and it also offers the following extensions: a second switchable and adjustable Master Volume and an adjustable PowerSoak. REMOTE1 lets you directly select between the CLEAN, VINTAGE, CLASSIC and MODERN channels, as well enabling you to control BOOST, REVERB and FX-LOOP settings. In addition you can save VOLUME (CLEAN CHANNEL) and GAIN (OVERDRIVE CHANNELS) for each preset separately.A standard jack lead (guitar or speaker cable) connects REMOTE1 toAMP1, and also powers the unit simultaneously.
Selecting “Preset Mode” (the Mode Switch will go blue) turns AMP1 into a programmable guitar amp. Every selection made with the footswitch in Direct Access Mode can be saved in one of the 36 Presets in 4 Banks à 9 Presets. For example, you can save the same tones with different volumes and effects as rhythm and solo sounds.
PRESETS and switching external FX Presets with MIDI out: this makes AMP1 a programmable guitar system with MIDI. With each Preset, REMOTE1 sends a MIDI program change command via the MIDI-OUT port to switch external MIDI-enabled effects equipment. This way, with a simple press of the foot you can control all ofAMP1’s functions and switch a MIDI effect to the desired Preset all at the same time.

LOOPERKIT(optional extension module for connecting FX pedals)
Those who want to program their own favourite pedals with REMOTE1 to avoid any unnecessary tap dancing can use the LOOPERKIT, with its four true bypass mono relay loops. The true bypass connection guarantees an optimal signal quality. The four loops can be individually assigned to each Preset, allowing the connected FX to be combined with AMP1’s settings. TheLOOPERKIT is screwed on to the side of REMOTE1, while the external pedals are cabled through a Breakout Box.
