Introducing The Bud TEN!

When we introduced The Bud, we knew we had something special, but we had no idea it would become such a phenomenon and completely change our business. We have now been able to make it even better and offer it in a 10″ cabinet so that it will handle even more low frequencies, greater projection and still be shockingly portable; only 20 lbs!  The tone, features, and size of this product can be life-changing for working guitar players, singer-songwriters, and multi-instrumentalists.

Description

Now in a 10″ speaker version, and only 20 lbs! Do you want to have an amplifier the size of a toaster that gives you the quality of tone for BOTH electric and acoustic instruments that you’d expect from a studio situation with enough volume to cover almost any gig?  Of course you do.  That’s why if you play guitar, or any stringed instrument with a pickup for that matter, you need a Bud TEN.  The Bud TEN has every feature you need and more than enough volume to get your bandmates or club manager to ask you to turn down, and coupled with the extension cabinet you can keep up with the heaviest-handed drummer with no problem.  The amp and cabinet are naturally feedback resistant which limits the need for artificial notch filtering and other suppression technologies that negatively effect your tone.

But it’s not all about size and volume, there are lots of tiny, loud amplifiers on the market.  You’ve tried them. You know what they sound like.  The Bud TEN is different.  Henriksen Amplifiers is all about tone first, the incredibly portable size and feature set of The Bud were developed around the sound, not the other way around and you can definitely hear the difference.  Our pre-amp, from input to output, is designed using the highest grade audio components. We offer a 5-band EQ with carefully chosen center frequencies which were fine-tuned by ear to meet the demands of different playing environments using the widest possible array of musical instruments.  We give you two identical pre-amps, each with independent EQ and reverb and actual 48 volt phantom power, and an auxiliary input on each channel so that whatever you are using it for can be EQ’d separately from your instrument signal.

    I love my Bud Ten. I think I was one of the first buyers. It is just a little bigger than the Bud I previously used, but it delivers a lot more sound. I am an old guy and carry all my gear so I also love the fact that the Ten is only slightly heavier than the Bud. That makes it easy for me to carry. Together with the Henriksen Cabinet I bought almost two years ago, it is a light-weight way to produce the mellow sounds I love and still fill a large venue.

    I love that it has two channels, separate reverb on each channel, separate (and very effective) EQ on each channel, separate effects loops for each channel, an Aux In, and Bluetooth connectivity. It gives me a lot of options besides running two instruments or one instrument and a mic into the amp. I can run a sound module that also has my primary mic signal into one channel and my guitar into the other. Or, as I am doing most often now, I run the sound module+mic Out into an amazing small Moorer effects pedal and send that into the effects loop for the Bud channel that hosts my guitar. Then I plug a second mic into the other channel. Of course, I have modified.the Moorer pedal effects so I have about 100 different mellow effects. And I have a separate channel on the Mooer pedal that has just the clean signal from my Bud Ten – this is the channel I use most often.

    The Aux In overrides a channel. But the Bluetooth does not. So if you want to use Bluetooth sounds you still have two channels for voice and instrument.

    All of this is wonderful, but the best thing remains the tremendous sound quality my Gibson guitar gets through the Ben Ten. But, since I am primarily a singer, I am very happy with the overall sound quality. The bottom line is that this is a great small amp that will certainly surprise many users with its power and clarity. I found it well worth the money. Made in the USA! Buy one!

    This is another fantastic Henriksen product. I had been asking for a version of the Bud with a ten inch speaker for ages, so I was one of the first to place an order. It was exactly what I hoped for. I play mostly 7-string, both steel and nylon, so the extra depth and clarity was wonderful. This is not a complaint about the Bud 6 by the way. I have one of those too and it also has great depth and balance. But the 10 gives me a little more “stuffing” when playing a big room. I often use the two amps together, for wide dispersion and to control the low/high balance in a noisy room. I can’t say enough good about the Bud 10. (I sometimes use it with the Ray extension cabinet as well; though I generally choose the Bud 6 instead, to give me active balance control.)

    The Bud 10 has the great two-channel configuration of the original Bud, with Bluetooth audio as well, so it is highly versatile. I often use a mic on the second channel, essentially as a micro-PA. I rarely bring a “real” PA to gigs anymore. The Bud 10 (or Bud 6) gives me what I need. I will sometimes use a small mixer board as input to the Bud, to control multiple mics/instruments. Again, the Bud stands up with the clarity and volume I need. The preamps and EQ quality are right there. It’s really changed how I approach live sound.

    Thanks, Henriksen, for such a good product line.
