AmpKit Mac includes all the great gear that AmpKit is famous for: 22 amps with 38 separate amp channels, 26 pedals, 28 cabinets and 8 mics. Below we've included tone samples for each AmpKit amp and pedal, as well as more details about each piece of gear. And don't forget that you can download the AmpKit Demo and try it for yourself.
Each amp in AmpKit is modeled after a great-sounding, real-world amp. If the real amp includes multiple channels (the Peavey 6505+, for example), you'll find the same channels modeled in AmpKit. Listen, look, enjoy!
|The Peavey® ValveKing® is a real legend, equally at home with Southern country rock as with mind-melting metal. Along with spring reverb, the unique Texture™ control completely transforms the amplifier's output from classic Class A to a modern A/B push/pull response, allowing either of this model's channels (clean and lead) to kick back with the good old boys, or dominate a modern stage.||The Peavey® 3120 is a three-channel amplifier with clean, rhythm, and lead sounds. Each channel is further tweakable via a three-way damping switch which can provide an up-front and by-the-throat attack, or much more subtle and smooth tonality which doesn't sacrifice any of the clarity and personality Peavey® is famous for.|
|The Peavey® 6505+ is the result of forty years of innovation in amplifier design. Named to celebrate the company's fortieth birthday in 2005, this monster of an amp is used by metal and heavy rock guitarists the world over. It's no one trick pony though, as it's deep resonance and diverse rhythm channel make it a sure thing for rock, blues, or even softer sounds.||The Peavey® 6534+ is a unique new take on the classic 6505+, featuring EL34 tubes for a slightly more British sound, and superior noise reduction. The rhythm channel can create anything from pure clean simplicity to layered crunch, and the lead channel features some of the most punishing yet controlled distortion ever created. A truly diverse new take on a classic Peavey® amplifier.|
|The Peavey® Classic 30® is a vintage amplifier with modern sensibilities. It features both clean and lead channels, each with a huge amount of versatility. Its built-in reverb control complements the soul of its sound perfectly, and this amp will see you through everything from blues and vintage rock to heavier gain tones with style.||The Budda® SuperDrive 30 Series II, nicknamed the 'Dirty 30', certainly lives up to its reputation by providing a combination of sweet and aggressive tone with a huge amount of flexibility via the Drive channel. The Rhythm channel manages to sound both sparkling and subtle, offering a wide dynamic range and personality whether you play jazz, blues, country, or harder rock styles.|
|With an array of unique controls, the Trace Elliot® 1215 is a fantastic modern-sounding bass amplifier with on-board EQ and dual-band compressor. Its preshape circuit brings out the classic Trace sound, whie the variable Valve control allows the amp to be dialed back, or pushed hard for a natural bass overdrive sound.||The Fargen™ Hot Mod™ Baby Blues™ started with a classic dirty blues amp, and through some of Ben Fargen's modification magic, the result is a captivating blend of smooth jazz and high-gain driving blues energy. With an added Presence control and a completely re-worked Drive circuit, the Baby Blues is breaking out of his crib.|
|Designed to blend the richest clean tones and the fattest sustaining lead tones possible from a dual-channel tube amplifier, the Fargen™ Super Collider™ is a whirlwind of on-stage energy.

Modeled on the Fender® Acoustasonic™, Junior DSP, the Feedback control allows acoustic guitar-specific noise reduction, and the Dynamics control allows you to filter harshness at high frequencies without adverse tonal effects.|
|Based on the Fender® Bassman® and twinned with a matching 4x10 cabinet, the multi-talented American Bass King sounds incredible whether you feed it a guitar or a bass. This amplifier will power those big rock chords, as well as blues chops and country licks, and try throwing a distortion or fuzz pedal its way to feel some rumble to be reckoned with.||The American Dual is modeled on the Fender® Twin®, and offers one of the most sought-after clean guitar tones of all time.

|The American Rebel (modeled on the Fender® Hot Rod Deluxe®) serves up a high-gain channel with enough gain, sustain, and overdrive to go around.

Our London Century, modeled on the Hiwatt® Custom 100 (DR103), is the amp that defined the sonic signature of some of the biggest rock bands of all time. Its wide-reaching Drive control allows for both clean and distorted sounds on a no-frills single channel amplifier.|

Most pedals in AmpKit are modeled after a great-sounding, real-world equipment. The exceptions are usually cases where we've combined several real-world pedals or circuits into a single virtual AmpKit pedal, such as the Tremo-LOL, which models tremolo circuitry that originated inside particular British and American guitar amps. Listen, look, enjoy!

The asymmetry is controllable via the Stare knob, adjusting the offset within the distortion to bring the gain out of your cabinet. Tweak the Scream control to kick out more gain, and use Louder to control the level.||The Rocktron® HUSH® is a noise reduction pedal with some major differences – it will effectively remove noise and hiss from your guitar or bass, won't sap sustain, and through Rocktron's Variable Integrated Release (V.I.R.) technology, it provides a smooth and transparent solution to unwanted instrument noise. For best results, set the Threshold just above the background noise of your instrument.|
|The Rocktron® Metal Planet Distortion® offers a unique and wide-reaching mid-frequency sweep which can drastically alter the already highly-tweakable distortion tones available.

It carries a clarity that's truly unique, and can create an awesome heavy rock lead tone when paired with some reverb.||Stand well back when opening the Rabid Rodent (modeled on the Pro Co® RAT®) – this snarling beast of a distortion pedal embodies everything filthy about rock and roll. This pedal will push your signal harder than most other distortion pedals, creating a much more biting sound, though the adjustable Gain, Tone, and Level controls will help you tame this monster.|
