Our passionate guitar-playing team of engineers set out to faithfully recreate the original amp with the painstaking accuracy and attention to detail that only guitar players with actual hands-on experience with the original amp can achieve.
At the heart of JIMS 45, our AmpWorx modelling technology works its magic, carefully capturing the classic guitar tone that is the sum of every individual component in the circuit of the original amp.
The outcome: The best and most precise digital amp modelling of this famous amp you have ever heard your guitar through.
Jimi Hendrix is widely accepted as one of the world’s most influential guitarists. Was he the best? We would make no such claim, as that is highly subjective, but he was wildly inspiring and the first to truly define the sound of guitar-driven rock.
First and foremost, thanks to his fantastic talent, but that talent for playing and pushing the envelope of how the available gear in the ’60s could be used.
His Strat was a key component of his sound, but so was his use of a certain tube amp and fuzz pedals.
JIMS 45 is our amp-modelling version of Jimi’s classic British guitar head!
