The Featured Models

Diezel Herbert

The Diezel Herbert is a 180-watt fire breather that can go from dynamic cleans to ultra-tight distortion. 30 Tone Models deliver that Diezel signature definition and tightness perfect for modern and classic metal tones. The collection includes all 3 distinctly voiced channels captured with different cabs, mics and outboard gear.

Bogner Uberschall

The Bogner Uberschall is a renowned high-gain guitar amp prized for its all-tube distortion and clear string separation. 25 Tone Models deliver searing lead and rhythm tones with tight and powerful bass, ideal for players of extended-range and drop-tuned guitars. The collection includes clean and high-gain Tone Models using multiple stomps to tighten and drive the amp into brutal territory.

Soldano SLO-100

The SLO-100 redefined high-gain amplification in 1987 as one of the first amp heads to feature powerful harmonics and impeccable gain, sustain and responsiveness. 25 Tone Models feature clean, drive and high-gain tones with several using a TS-9 and Furman PQ-3, captured with a variety of settings, speakers and other outboard gear to achieve a wide range of tones for hard rock to modern metal.

Peavey 5150 Block Letter

The Peavey 5150 is one of history's most iconic high-gain amps, instantly recognizable on any stage. Renowned for its bloom and juicy harmonic saturation, the 5150 was quickly adopted by many top metal guitar players. 20 Tone Models feature a variety of captures including some with stomps and with 6 different cabs to deliver a wide range of skull-crushing, gig-ready tones.
