    OK, so here's amp number 3 from the Classic Hybrid line!

    Knuckle Head (you see where we're going with these names?) is a bad boy bruiser with a sweet and soft side that it's not afraid to show! While this amp wouldn't think twice about assaulting your ears with decimating tone (DSP JOKE! :p)it can also churn out some sweet, soothing chimes for the softer-side of things - and don't think it's scared to get raunchy either!

    Knuckle Head is Capable of kicking out tones that range from sweet, glistening cleans to SRV and Yardbirds style smokin' hot crunch right through to punishing high gain destruction - Knuckle Head does it all with style!

    Here's what Ken has to say about Knuckle Head!:

    'Knuckle head is the brute force amp of the collection. His poweramp is the main tone maker, it gives you a raunchy heavy distortion or a nice crunchy yardbirds type tone. Although it is capable of all the sounds in between. I have only ever been able to get this distorted sound from a real amp and no other amp sim has ever been abe to give me the raunchy sort of distorted high mid that this one does. With mid cranked, Treble master cranked, bass 3/4, Treble off, master 1/4 everything else cranked, it will give you a superb machine gun type of fast picking while riding a string, like picking the e string really fast while palm muting.'

    He's damn right about the palm muting, this thing feels absolutely perfect for chugging style riffs and will have your right hand chugging up and down like there's no tomorrow, in fact, you probably haven't had this much fun chugging like this since you were 15 and had the house to yourself for a night...

    So, if you haven't got Dick Head and Meat Head already, go get them (now!!) and round off the trio! Check back tomorrow to come one sim closer to completing the collection!

    Bear in mind the Preampus Line amps are HEAD ONLY, you will NEED to use some external cabinet modeling, we highly recommend LePou's LeCab, which you can grab here: LePou Plugins: LeCab v1.0

    Stop ripping people off with stealing their names. If you are talented enough to actually make the product then the name shouldnt be that big of a deal.

    Unbelievable.

    ABG plugins are great, they don't need fancy names. They're little known and makes no money out of these so I don't see problem really...

    Thanks for your interest, check the reply I gave you in the meat head thread where you complained about the name...Hopefully that will clear up any mis-conceptions...


    Guys we have FrankenAmp coming very soon, FrankenAmp takes all the components from all of our heads. Puts it all into one head and allows you to select the components yourself. So, say the tonestack from Meat Head, The power amp from Knuckle Head, The gain stages from Razor, ETC...You should be able to craft a pretty original sound with this one. At the very least you'll be tweaking for weeks! I believe its something like 20-30,000 combinations which would be like having 20-30,000 different heads...I don't know the combination number yet for sure because we have not yet stopped making heads for it. I believe we are nearing 20 now..

    Anyways thanks a lot for checking these things out and if you have any questions feel free to email me. Click my signature in the head..
