Guitarists are a strange breed. They love modifications just as long as nothing actually changes. Never change a winning team is their approach: the favourite guitar, the good old amp and that particular speaker cabinet. The final link in the chain is the defining resonating body to capture the magical sound.
Electric guitarists looking for the perfect way to mike up for live or for recording now have one of the simplest and most workable solutions available-which also sets new standards in sound quality. Brought together in a compact, lightweight metal box are 16 legendary speaker cabinets. Drawing on 30 years of both stage and studio experience, I have put together a collection of my own. Recorded with the best microphones and digitally converted using today’s cutting-edge Convolution Technologie, locking down every detail. But why convert the sounds digitally? Simply because analogue equipment cannot capture all the acoustic complexities and nuances the speakers produce. Convolution Technologie on the other hand is able to reproduce the complete array of tones and the uniqueness of each cabinet down to the last detail.
Just pick your favourite cab, fine-tune the sound with the Mic-Position controller and away you go! 16 classic, world-renowned cabs are available in the BluBox: 5 legendary Marshall® cabs with vintages from 1965 and 1980 but also the glorious, cult cabinets from Vox®, Mesa-Boogie® and Fender®. Of course, I have also included the BluGuitar® NANOCAB™ and FATCAB™ which have been rapturously received in music world for their huge sound.
The BluBox™ is the ideal partner for all eventualities. Whether on stage or in the studio - wherever you need striking sounds of the highest quality miked up or recorded. All this works with the BluBox directly and even without a speaker cabinet!
BluBox™ - The new Speaker Emulation with the most legendary cabinet/microphone combinations of the past 50 years in music history, captured for the discerning professional. Great sounds, simple use, small package! The Sound of Tone innovation.
Perfectly mic’ed up
You want to have your specific sound at your fingertips wherever you might be without any complications and experiments? Well that´s precisely why I put together the 16 best legendary cabinet / microphone combinations from 50 years of music history and packed them in the BluBOX™. You can create any kind of music from Country to Metal with it. Gone are the days of having to set up and organise. Just a flick of the wrist and it´s all there - in the studio or on stage.
Great Tone - No cone
The cabinet simulations are authentic and convincing. But the level of sound is not the only aspect; using quality monitoring they feel so good that you can actually do without a speaker cabinet altogether. The BluBOX™ is a truly versatile tool and good for all you need.
Silent Night for our neighbours
Creativity has no sense of time. You want to play and drive your amp hard at night? With BluBOX™ this is not a problem, without even upsetting the neighbours. Using the BluBOX™ with the AMP1™ it´s like falling off a log; the AMP1™ ´s speaker output can be connected to the BluBOX™ needing no load. All classic tube amps require load to function properly. There are now many load boxes available on the market to accommodate every type of amp for silent recording. But with BluBOX™ and AMP1™, you are already there.
