This exclusive tube stage simulator uses convolution to achieve realistic speaker simulation.

France (June 22, 2010) -- Two Notes Audio Engineering announced the last product of the Torpedo series: the VM-202.

The VM-202 is a dual-processor guitar/bass cab simulator. It handles both analog (line balanced/unbalanced) and digital signals (S/PDIF, AES/EBU). Plug-in directly your bass/guitar preamp or other instruments with a line output (keyboard, piano, etc.).

With this new product, playing two cab+microphone simulations simultaneously and reproducing, for example a multi microphones miking process, are now possible.

The Torpedo VM-202 integrates a power amp simulation which offers the possibility to choose between A or AB class. The simulation gives the choice between 4 different tubes among the most used in the market (EL84, EL34, 6V6, etc.).

A modern take on Fullerton shapes and a blend of Fender and Gibson attributes strikes a sweet middle ground.

A stylish alternative to classic Fender profiles that delivers sonic versatility. Great playability.

Split-coil sounds are a little on the thin side. Be sure to place it on the stand carefully!


Fender Player Plus Meteora HH


After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
