The Bud is without question the smallest, TRULY GIGABLE guitar amplifier on the market. You won’t believe the tone coming from either your electric or acoustic guitar, or any stringed instrument with a pickup for that matter, not to mention the volume The Bud is capable of cleanly producing. At 9x9x9 inches, 17 pounds and 120 watts of analog power with a feature set that allows you the versatility to cover almost any kind of gig, this is a MUST HAVE piece of gear for the working musician.

About The Bud

A couple years ago we were cleaning out a box of stuff that belonged to our late founder, Bud Henriksen, and found a mysterious speaker cabinet he had made with a 6″ speaker in it. The box happened to be the exact size for our circuit boards to be mounted in, so we built it into a prototype. The result was shocking, not only in the amount of volume which could be coaxed from the enclosure, but also in how incredibly good the sound was. Equally shocking was the response from our customers; obvioulsy there was a need for a tiny amp which sounded as good as our JazzAmp line, but that wasn’t a toy or just a practice amp. So we set out to engineer the smallest possible amplifier a musician could still legitimately gig with. Mission accomplished! Not only does The Bud have an unmatched feature set and enough real power to gig with, it has tonal fidelity that other small amps on the market simply can’t compete with and it sounds just as amazing with acoustic guitars as it does electrics so you can use one amp for both on the same gig, something no other amplifier achieves as well as The Bud.

Features and Specifications

The Bud has two identical pre-amps, each with independent EQ, separate FX loops, independent reverb, full 48 volt phantom power and an input gain control to adjust for different pickups.  There’s also an auxiliary input on channel 1 so that whatever you are using it for can be EQ’d separately from your instrument signal. Channel 2 has a bright switch for instruments that need more high end push.

There is a balanced XLR out on the back of the amp which is post-EQ, post-reverb and both channels summed – meaning the signal you’re sending the house (or mixing console, or other amplifier, etc…) is the same signal you’re hearing from the speaker! For pre-EQ and individual channel output the FX loop send/returns can be used.

If you need more sound pressure, there is a parallel extension speaker output to make full use of The Bud’s output power. The Bud can drive a 4×10 bass cabinet with no problem at all, and if you plug a 1/4″ dummy plug (headphone adapter plug) into the headphone jack, it defeats the internal speaker but leaves the extension speaker out live. Did we mention there’s a headphone jack?

The possibilities are nearly limitless, all from an amp so tiny you won’t believe your eyes, but you will believe your ears.

Wow! What a fitting tribute to add to the Henriksen line. This ‘Bud’ is the biggest, cleanest and best sounding ‘little’ amp I’ve ever heard! You’ve got to hear this thing!

My nylon string Buscarino has a Barbera Soloist pickup and it sounds like God plugged straight into the Bud!

My Breedlove acoustic guitar with standard Fishman Pro Blend pickup has NEVER sounded better than through the Bud.
