Take a test flight

One of the cool features of the Custom Shop is the ability for you to "try before you buy" individual pieces of gear, and that means full versions of any piece of gear.

You can demo each gear model for a period of 72 hours in the privacy and comfort of your own playing space. Time it right and you’ve got a long weekend of really testing every control and nuance before you decide to purchase.



Once you’ve decided on your gear, AmpliTube Custom Shop makes it easy to check out, too. You can unlock gear individually, or add them to your cart to check out a larger number of models at once.

Unlock your favorites, the pieces needed for a particular preset or song, or even purchase a full collection.

Touch Down

The new AmpliTube Custom Shop still lets you use your Gear Credits as before, but also lets you pay cash for any amount to save you the extra step.

Once purchased, these models are permanently added to your collection on this and all your machines. Just click “restore my gear” on any other installation and your full collection will instantly unlock.


One giant leap for Ampkind

For the ultimate in tone and feel, step up to the new AmpliTube 5 itself. Packed with powerful new features like a 57-effect chain, revolutionary cabinet section with VIR™ technology for even more realistic sound, and stuffed with all the gear you could want, AmpliTube 5 is a giant leap for amp modeling technology.
