Quite literally “the Brian May tone in the palm of your hand”, the amPlug BM is a tiny headphone amplifier developed in collaboration with Sir Brian May that delivers the legendary guitarist’s iconic sound anytime, anywhere, through any set of standard headphones.
Designed to recreate the unique rush of playing through a treble boosted AC30 signal chain, the mission with this exclusive special edition was to make Brian’s instantly recognisable tones accessible to all.
“I want people to be able to get the sounds you make in a stadium show into your living room, and this achieves that. I hope that people find them inspiring.” Sir Brian May
As well as a meticulously modeled emulation of the maestro's amplifier, the amPlug BM features a TREBLE BOOSTER setting and three switchable effects modules — a STEREO DELAY with tap tempo, allowing you to channel Brian May’s epic call-and-response work on songs such as “Brighton Rock” and “Now I’m Here”, plus rich PHASER and CHORUS modulations that will transport you onto the Rainbow or Wembley Stadium stages from the comfort of your own home or studio.
In addition, the amPlug BM also offers a choice of backing rhythms to jam along to, including the “We Will Rock You” stomps and claps. All you need to do is connect the amPlug BM to your guitar via its built-in, foldable jack, plug in a standard set of headphones, and you’re ready to rock.
Alternatively, you can set the amPlug and matching speaker cabinet up as a cool, mini half-stack, plugging in your guitar via a standard 1/4" jack cable.
