With the blessing of Dave Friedman himself, Buxom Betty has joined our guitar amp hall of fame. This is a stunning, hand-wired, single-channel amp, famous for its creamy clean American and crunchy British tones. Famously versatile this is also an excellent amp for blues, country and jazz musicians. You can shift from medium gain tones to snarling overdrive textures just by adjusting your guitar's volume control. 

All the tube-driven glory of the original
The sound of the Buxom Betty amp plugin comes from painstakingly modeling the impedance, gain staging, and circuit behaviors of the original hand-wired tube amp. In this guitar plugin you can hear the unique combination of Blackface and Plexy-Style circuitry including EL34 tubes.
