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 Wireless 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 Wireless 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.
