New gear in the collection:

The SilverTwelve (model is based on theSilvertone® Twin Twelve 1484) is a 60W tube head with a separate2x12 cabinet, which Hendrix used in the early part of his career.The amp produces a powerful clean sound and a gritty distortion,and has stood the test of time from the psychedelic era through theGrunge period and into today's modern rock.

The JH Gold (model based on a Marshall® JTM 45)is "the" amp that Hendrix used almost exclusively from 1968 on. Heliked to crank it to full volume and chain multiple heads toproduce a huge, mind-blowing wall of sound. The new model has beenreworked from the ground up, using IK's DSM™ and SCC™ modellingtechnologies, and includes both the Normal and Treble channels,plus fully modelled channel bridging.

The JH GoldThe JH 1200 (modelbased on the Sunn® 1200), is a high-powered tube bass head.Concertgoers at any Hendrix show between 1967 and 1968 would haveseen an entire backline consisting of Sunn amps and cabinets. Aswith many amps from the psychedelic era, the ultra-loud 1200 waspopular with both guitarists and bass players.

The JH 120The EP Tape Echo(model based on the Maestro® Echoplex) is the gold standard ofvintage tape-echo units. Hendrix liked experimenting with it toproduce wild psychedelic effects in the studio, and he used itheavily during the recording of Electric Ladyland.
