Product Description

Everybody should have a BUD! Nicknamed after the founder of Henriksen Amplifiers with a double meaning reflecting its size. At 9"x9"x9" and around 17 lbs [7.7 kilos] this amp is not only little, it's tiny! It's also amazingly flexible to accomodate a variety of instruments including Jazz, Acoustic, Electric guitars plus violin family bowed instruments, mandolin family fretted instruments, accordion, and banjo. Sorry, no trombones! ;-)

As Peter Henriksen framed the question: "Using our current architecture, how small is the smallest JazzAmp we could possibly build that sounds great and could still be considered "gigable?" Peter's response in his typical understated manner: "Quite small, apparently."

       "I must say it sounds fantastic, even better than I hoped for!"

          - SOUNDISLAND customer

This little amp is powered by the same 120-watt power section in the main JazzAmp product line so it will play "loud enough." A modified Henriksen EQ section ports over too through specifically tuned for the application. 

When you cut through all the marketing hype,  the bottom line is that this little guy just plain works. And it works for so many of our typical playing situations that it's almost a necessity. The EQ and extended range speaker system allow for tuning the amp to most any treble cleff instrument. The small speaker and cabinet are naturally feedback resistant which limits the need for artificial notch filtering and other suppression technologies that negatively effect your tone so it's easy to use.

And the two identical pre-amps, each with independent EQ and reverb plus 48 volt phantom power, auxiliary inputs on each channel make it fully functional for instruments and microphones so we can use it for rehearsals, small gigs, monitors...all those typical playing situations we face in our musical lives.

         Everyone should own a BUD. Or several! And all from SOUNDISLAND ;-)
