Carl Martin Launches the Ampster
A 100% analog tube amp/speaker DI intended to supplement an amp, or replace it.
The Ampster, a single tube driven amp/speaker simulator that can either supplement your amp, or replace it. A fully analogue unit with controls that are the same as your amplifier with the addition of a mute switch, a speaker selection switch and a voicing switch. Additionally, the Ampster reacts to your playing in the same way your full-size amp does, giving you the same feel with zero latency.
The Ampster is housed in a solid metal box with the standard EQ (Bass Middle Treble), pre and post volume/gain controls (Master & Gain) plus a Presence Control. There is a Mute Switch for obvious reasons and a Cabinet Switch with an LED Indicator light (Red for a 2x12 Open Backed Cab, and Green for a 4x12 Closed Back Cab). On the back of the pedal, you will find a Ground Lift and a Voicing Switch (a subtle low-end cap controlled voicing adjustment). Input, Link (output to your amp or powered speaker) Balanced DI (XLR output to go to a mixing or recording console), a Send and Return for those specific effects that shouldn’t be in front of the amp, a Remote Input for use with digital or analogue effect controllers like the Carl Martin Octa-Switch ‘The Strip’, and your standard 9v 1A power input.
