AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is a cooperative effort between Authentic Hendrix and IK Multimedia. Authentic Hendrix was founded in late 90s, by Al Hendrix and his daughter Janie to curate and promote Jimi’s extensive recorded legacy. Jimi Hendrix was fundamental in the development of modern guitar amplification and guitar effects and marked the evolution of modern electric guitar sound. In only the four years between 1966, when he started his reharsal sessions with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and 1970, when he died in London on September 18 at the age of 27, he contributed to change the way music was made and electric guitar was played, leaving a permanent mark on the generations of guitarists and musicians that followed. He is constantly named by guitar and music magazines as the number one guitarist of all time.

Not only will the Jimi Hendrix Edition allow you to get that authentic Hendrix sound but it can also be integrated within AmpliTube 2 to expand the available stomps, amps and cabinets. The Jimi Hendrix Edition will add some of the most rare and collectible stomps and amps that guitarist crave the most. Mix and match them with the entire selection of other AmpliTube 2 components for one of the most complete collections of vintage gear ever made available for playing and recording.

The Jimi Hendrix rig

Hendrix’s sound is a unique mix of high volume, feedback control and a unique, personal usage of guitar effects which was a breakthrough for its time. By then Hendrix was one of the first guitarists to experiment with the full expressive possibilities of electronic effects, which were a fundamental part of his sound. Electronic effects were a technological novelty in the 60’s with semiconductor electronics in its infancy and the very first commercially available germanium transistors introduced in the mid 50’s gradually replacing tubes in the next two decades.

IK has gone the extra mile in accurately modeling all the most important components of the Hendrix rig not only using proprietary AmpliTube 2 DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology at its best, but collecting all the original vintage stomps, amplifiers and cabinets and fine tuning the software emulations by ear with accurate craftmanship to achieve incredibly realistic modeling results. A sound that will bring you back to the Woodstock era.

AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition offers the same 2 series/parallel rig structure of AmpliTube 2 and ensures a complete and flexible rig structure that can be used not only to recreate the authentic tones of popular Hendrix tunes but since the modeled gear in this product is in such high demand by guitarists, AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is a fantastic tool for many styles of modern rock music from hard rock to punk, alternative, progressive and pop.

9 Stomp Effect Models

  • Wah 47 (Based on Vox® Wah V847) - The Wah 47 is a model of the most famous wah-wah used by Jimi Hendrix which became his signature sound in masterpiece tunes like “Voodoo Child.” Although the original had no auto-wah features, this additional functionality has been added for a more convenient usage when played on a computer. This is considered to be one of the best sounding wah-wahs of all time
  • Uni-V (Based on Univox™ Uni-Vibe™ ) - This was a chorus/rotating-speaker simulator that was introduced in 1969 and used predominantly in live performances. This created a swirling effect quite similiar to the Leslie® speaker cabinet but with the addition of speed control. This effect was employed on tracks such as “Hey Baby (The Land of the New Rising Sun),” “Earth Blues,” and “Machine Gun.” A vintage Uni-Vibe™ is in such high demand it sells for over a thousand dollars, if you can even find one.
  • Fuzz Age (Based on Arbiter® Fuzz Face®) - This was the main fuzz box he used, a classic germanium transistor fuzz effect. Often combined with a wah, this effect produced permanent sustain and endless distortion. The original Fuzz Face® is one of the most collectible fuzz boxes ever.
  • Octa-V (Based on Roger Mayer™ Octavia) - This effect was first used on “Purple Haze” and “Fire.” It is a fuzz box with frequency-doubling circuitry that produces a second note an octave above the fundamental note.
  • RightFuzz (Based on Mosrite™ Fuzzrite®) - A highly sought-after, rare fuzz box, it was one of the first commercially available floor effect units, making its first appearance in 1966. It doesn’t get any more vintage than this when it comes to stomp pedals.
  • FuzzOne (Based on Maestro® FuzzTone) - Hendrix began using this fuzz box while playing in New York City before founding the Experience. Its sounds can be heard in the enourmously popular Rolling Stones song “Satisfaction.”
  • XS Fuzz (Based on Roger Mayer™ Axis fuzz) - Jimi used many fuzz box units like this vintage model which adds to the powerful sound palette that AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition can offer.
  • Class Fuzz (Based on Roger Mayer™ Classic fuzz) - Jimi used many fuzz box units like this vintage model which adds to the powerful sound palette that AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition can offer.
  • Opto-Tremolo (Based on Fender® Opto-Tremolo)

4 Amp Models:

  • British Vintage Super I/II (Based on Marshall® Super 100) -This is modeled on the Classic British 100 watt amp Jimi is generally associated with. Both the high and low input have been modeled to offer an accurate reproduction of the complete tonal characteristics of this amp. Jimi often used multiple amp heads (up to 6) looping them together to get more power, a setup that can be recreated in AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition because of its dual rig capability.
  • American Vintage D (Based on Fender® Dual-Showman®) - Hendrix acquired this 100 watt amp in 1968 and used it in ‘68 and ‘69 with the Experience tour together with an assortment of other amps. The amp sported a built-in spring reverb unit and originally came with 2x15” J.B. Lansing® speakers.
  • American Vintage T (Based on Fender® Twin Reverb®) - This was Jimi’s amp of choice during ’65 through ’66. It included a spring reverb and was equipped with 2x12” J.B. Lansing® speakers.
  • American Vintage B (Based on Fender® Bassman®) - The design of this amp influenced many of its successors and was used by Jimi in the studio recording of “Voodoo Child.”
