NY Amp Show '10 - Bludotone Amps Hi-Plains Drifter

June 24, 2010


PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location at the 2010 NY Amp Show where he visits the Bludotone Amp room. In this segment, we get to check out their newest amp--the Hi-Plains Drifter.

The Hi-Plains Drifter is a single-channel, 150-watt amplifier with spring reverb designed for the bluesy rock players of the SRV and Eric Johnson school. Bludotone's Brandon Montgomery describes the amp's tone as "going from a sparkly, spankin' clean to a medium roar overdrive, but still retaining the guitar's original tone. Even though the amp is 150 watts, it still produces those overdriven tones at a reasonable volume... it doesn't have to be loud, but it sure likes to be loud."
