BluGuitar Launches the AMP X

BluGuitar Launches the AMP X

Debuting at NAMM 2022, the AMP X is a 100-watt neural analog and fully-programmable amp in pedal format.

First teased at Winter NAMM 2020, the AMP X is set to be publicly unveiled at the NAMM 2022 summer show, with customers, press, artists and visitors encouraged to come and discover it at the BluGuitar booth, which is situated at Hall D, #5427. AMP X is a constantly growing collection of amps and effects in authentic analog nanotube quality. AMP X was designed to be a powerful guitar amp system – a complete rig for guitar players in one easily-transportable 6.5 lbs. chassis.

BluGuitar founder and professional guitarist Thomas Blug will be on-hand throughout the show to demonstrate and explain the many facets of AMP X. Alongside the AMP X at the booth will be BluGuitar’s award-winning AMP1 Mercury and Iridium Edition amplifiers, as well as the full range of BluGuitar cabinets and other accessories. BluGuitar artist endorsers including Jennifer Batten, Ryszard Gabrielczyk and Andrew Matthews will also make appearances at the booth.

The author’s PX-6131 model is an example of vintage-guitar evolution that offers nostalgic appeal in the modern world—and echoes of AC/DC’s Malcolm Young.

An old catchphrase among vintage dealers used to run: “All Gretsches are transition models.” While their near-constant evolution was considered confusing, today their development history is better understood. This guitar however is a true transition model, built just as the Jet line was undergoing major changes in late 1961.
