Bluguitar Amp1 Nanotube 100 Amplifier Mercury Edition


AMP1 delivers a wide tonal palette, from jazz to metal, in professional quality. Thomas’ dream was to put the immense power and character of vintage tube amplifiers into one small package that would fit into any glove compartment or gigbag – without compromising on the tones. Mission accomplished! Now revised Mercury Edition for even more flexibility!

Bluguitar Amp1 Nanotube 100 Amplifier Mercury Edition


Since its launch in 2015, when Guitarist Magazine lauded it with a rare  all five star review, the BluGuitar AMP1 has become hugely popular, setting a new standard in the industry for guitar amplifiers with the innovative and exciting "pedal amp" format. After 3 years of AMP1 changing the way guitarists think about their amp set-up, BluGuitar company owner Thomas Blug’s constant tweaking and researching, using his own gigging experience as well as feedback from users around the world, has come together in the new, revised version of the unit: the BluGuitar AMP1 Mercury Edition.

 The modern-day electric guitarist is necessarily more demanding than ever, ever searching for that “holy grail” tone. They demand a comprehensive and versatile palette with the very highest tonal integrity, from warm and rounded jazz  to crystalline vintage clean, through to classic crunch to hard-hitting rock, to  molten metal, with flexible switching and routing options allowing them to achieve “their” in any context or playing situation, with any rig.



Thomas’s modifications recreate those ‘holy grail’ tones with even more depth and satisfaction than before. The BluGuitar AMP1 Mercury Edition with its 100 watts “Nanotube” driven power amp has all the tonal capabilities and features of the well-established original AMP1 and features specific tonal enhancements to offer even more clarity and definition for both single coils and humbuckers, offering greater flexibility and additional tones especially suited to “modern players”. All this in a super-lightweight, compact road-ready unit that fits inside your glove compartment or gig bag!

Its beloved CLEAN channel delivers clean tones from classic American clean, breaking up nicely like a vintage tube amp when driven hard, right up to modern pristine, sparkling transparent clean tones. With the AMP1 Mercury Edition, there’s something new for both worlds: more warmth on the "tweed side" of the CLEAN channel’s very own Custom Control knob, and more clarity and definition on the Custom Control’s modern side.

The classic-voiced VINTAGE channel has kept its raunchy, smoky, dirty soulful JTM45 style character, giving you the full range from clean to cranked vintage tones, but it has become a touch tighter when cranked.

The CLASSIC channel delivers the best iconic British rock tones from “Plexi” to JCM800 style for crunchy rhythm parts or screaming lead solos. Precise tonal fine-tunings give the CLASSIC channel more punch and bite, lifting it to the level of a hot-rodded version of those classic amps.

The MODERN channel provides more than ample gain and a huge variety of tones, from a warm creamy sustain for singing, soaring leads to the total opposite world of modern metal sounds where a much wider dynamic range offers more expression for leads and more tightness for contemporary metal tones.

 The original BluGuitar AMP1 had an awesome reverb, but in the quest for perfection, Thomas has created an entirely new reverb algorithm for the BluGuitar AMP1 Mercury Edition for a superbly lush and enveloping reverb that provides even greater dimension and depth to your guitar sound.

In summary, the re-voiced 
BluGuitar AMP1 Mercury Edition gives you all the great tones you’re expecting from an AMP1 – now with even more flexibility than ever, flexibility enough for Guitarist Magazine to award it the coveted status of Guitarist Gold in its 10/10 review in the March 2019 issue.

Guitarist Magazine Review

 The world’s most compact amp head!

AMP1 is perfect for use without a loudspeaker, just with headphones or for “Silent Recording”. You can use AMP1 like an amp head on top of your cab, connect it up to your effects board and stompboxes, or simply have it on the floor in front of you. The underside of AMP1 also features a handy recess that allows the system to sit safely on cabs that have carry handles on top.


AMP1-Setup AmpHead

The amp at your feet

AMP1’s three illuminated footswitches let you select Clean/Overdrive, Boost and Reverb settings.

In a special Preset Mode, the three footswitches can also be programmed to bring up your preferred settings (using either the Clean, Vintage, Classic or Modern channel, and with Boost and Reverb either on or off).

REMOTE1 has been developed to enable direct access by footswitch to all four of AMP1’s channels, the FX loopReverbBoost, a second Master Volume, and PowerSoak controls. A mono jack cable between AMP1 and REMOTE1 powers the system and simultaneously assigns all switching functions to REMOTE1


AMP1-Setup StompAmp

Simply flexible

With AMP1 it’s possible to build a complete 100-watt guitar amp and effects setup on a single pedalboard for the first time ever. This will really help reduce the amount of cabling guitarists will need to use, which not only benefits their tone, but will also save the pro player an awful lot of time with assembly and clear-up before and after the gig.

Using the optional REMOTE1 foot pedal, all of AMP1’s functions can be directly selected, and Presets can be made. Consistent with the Presets, REMOTE1’s MIDI out can be used to switch programmes on external MIDI-capable effect devices.

If you want to control your AMP1 with another MIDI footswitch setup, then the MIDI1Adapter is available.
