Black Spirit 200. Like no amp before.

Black Spirit 200 delivers an explosive ride through musical history, a four-channel eruption of thrilling sounds that gives you the most intense playing experience you’ve ever felt. The groundbreaking new bionic Spirit Tone Generator houses the essence of real tube amp physics in a strictly analog way, and faithfully recreates the vivid interactions of traditional tube amp circuits with all of the intensity. Plus: the world’s first true power amp sagging control lets you dial in as much tube creaminess and growl as your tone needs - regardless of volume level.

On top of its inspirational tone, Black Spirit 200 packs a comprehensive range of built-in reverb, delay and modulation effects. What’s more, any channel and effects controls can be stored in up to 128 presets and recalled any time – even with an App for iPad connected via Bluetooth!

To feed your tone into your desk or recording interface, the all-new Red Box AE+ now comes with eight carefully selected and designed cabinets, which you can also enjoy via the built-in headphones out. Besides guitar cabinets, the unique power amp design even allows you to drive any passive full range cabinets and enjoy true guitar cab sound with up to a whopping 200 watts of pure power.

Blessed with incredible practicality and an exhilarating range of sounds and features, immense power, and weighing in at just 8 lbs., Black Spirit 200 is perfect for anywhere from your bedroom to the world’s biggest arenas. It is truly like no amp before.
