Description

We wanted to create a single channel version of our enormously successful amp, The Bud, but we also wanted to try a slightly different design concept which allows us to keep the same great sound but 5 lbs lighter!  At 12 lbs and 120 watts with all the essential features and Bluetooth auxiliary channel, The Blu is professional-grade through and through with the same great tone as The Bud.  In the beginning, Bud Henriksen’s goal was to create a small, simple, plug-n-play amplifier that sounded great and was loud enough to gig. His original amplifiers had a blue painted baffle, so we used that as the inspiration for The Blu’s design.

The Blu has a 5-band graphic EQ, FX loop, reverb, full 48 volt phantom power and a Bluetooth auxiliary input for backing tracks or set break music. There is also a studio-grade balanced XLR line out, a headphone output, and a parallel extension speaker output to make full use of The Blu’s output power.

    I bought the Henriksen 312 (my first Henriksen) in November 2017 & have played lots of gigs with it since – LOVE the sound, much better Jazz sound than my Polytone ! I own 3 archtops & this has been the best ever !!!
    Since the Blu came out, been eyeing one, knowing how much lighter the Blu is & hearing so man great things from many pros I know & respect. It was difficult to justify buying another new amp, since the 312 was my first new one since I bought my Polytone in 1989, but when i unexpectedly sold my Mergas custom archtop, replacing it with a less expensive guitar, I jumped at the chance & have been very pleased with the Blu after a few rehearsals & gigs – absolutely the BEST small amp !!! Very clean, even at higher volumes & my upright bassist even tried it & LOVES it ! ( told him to get his own ! )
    At 12 lbs, this is so unbelievable that the Blu could sound so good. I know I will still use the 312 for larger rooms & outdoor venues, but for most of my winery event & restaurant gigs, this will quickly become my favorite go-to amp ~ and I must mention the fantastic customer service – Peter really cares & it shows in his products AND service ~ Henriksen ROCKS my Jazz world ~ Thank you, Peter & your great staff !

    I just received the Henriksen Blu. What an incredible amp. Such great tone and POWER in such a small package. I purchased a Henriksen JazzAmp 110R in 2011 but I also need a lightweight amp to grab and go out the door. This amp does the trick and the tone is amazing. I have been using it with my Gibson Le Grand and Gibson ES 175. I have yet to plug some of my Ibanez archtops into it but I am sure they will also sound great. . . One has to adjust the EQs to get what you want. . . My girlfriend also tried her flute through the amp with a mic using the XLR input. . . We may get the extension cabinet and use the Blu and the extension like a PA for the flute. I can use the larger Henriksen amp for guitar. We play flute and jazz guitar duets. . . Anyway, great amps!
