German Virtuoso Thomas Blug Heading to the UK

(PRESS RELEASE): Virtuoso German guitarist Thomas Blug will be visiting the UK at the end of this month to give a series of in-store talks and live performances with his innovative BluGuitar AMP1.

Kicking off in Glasgow, Scotland, Thomas will make a whistle-stop tour southwards visiting dealers in York, Sheffield, Norwich, Lowestoft, Brighton and Exeter, demonstrating the revolutionary AMP1 system and its growing family of accessories.

Consisting of the pedal-sized, 100 watt, NANOTUBE powered four channel guitar amp, AMP1 can now be matched up perfectly with its two new equally compact speaker options – NANOCAB the ultra-compact 1x12” guitar cabinet, and FATCAB – a 1x12 that nevertheless sounds huge like a 4x12!

For those who require a shade more versatility, AMP1 can now be accessed via the REMOTE 1 – an optional programmable pedal controller that can directly access all the functionality of AMP1 via 9 switches and organised in 4 banks with 9 presets each. With the built in MIDI-out guitar players also can switch programs of external MIDI-FX-devices simultaneously.

Meanwhile the LOOPER KIT provides 4 true bypass relay loops to program your beloved pedals with REMOTE1 to avoid any unnecessary tap dancing! The four loops can be individually assigned to each REMOTE1 preset, whilst MIDI1 makes AMP1 Midi controllable with any MIDI foot controller.

As Thomas himself says "AMP1 is not only the most compact valve amp, it can be scaled to your needs from puristic, straight forward tone, up to a fully programmable, midi-enabled system with almost endless options!".

In addition to his store appearances, Thomas will also give a couple of evening live performances with full band, at The Bull & Fairhouse in Wakefield on Tuesday 29th September and at The Lady of the Lake in Oulton Broad, Lowestoft – the latter in conjunction with Listers Guitars as a support slot to Heavy Metal legends Oliver/Dawson Saxon.

The six day tour will culminate in an appearance at The Mansons Guitar Show, Corn Exchange, Exeter on Saturday 2nd October.
