After the successful launch of the original Strum Buddy, particular guitarists were asking for a version that better represented their favorite type of music: METAL! They basically wanted a harder-edged version! Building on the success of our Strum Buddy guitar monitor, Fluid Audio now introduces the Heavy Metal edition.
Fluid Audio Strum Buddy Heavy Metal Portable Guitar Amplifier Features
- 40mm neodymium magnet speaker
- 6-Watt amplifier
- DSP guitar effects presets: Overdrive, Phaser and Reverb
- Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery - 3.5 hours of play time on one charge
- Package Contents
- Strum Buddy Metal Edition personal guitar monitor/amplifier
- USB-A to USB micro cable for charging internal battery
- 1.4” to 3.5mm mono guitar cable for plugging in
Using the same basic design as the original (same speaker, amplifier, rechargeable battery and suction cup), we have tweaked the EQ and the effects to represent a heavier…”Metallier” sound. The Metal Edition also has a Chrome colored speaker grille, differentiating it in look as well from the original. Where the original Strum Buddy used a Crunch distortion sound (more reminiscent of the ‘60s or ‘70s rock guitar) the Metal Edition has an over-saturated Overdrive sound – which is more like the Grunge and Metal sounds of the 2000’s. Where the original has a Chorus setting, the Metal Edition has a Phaser effect, which used in tandem with the distortion, creates a classic solo guitar sound. The Reverb is the same great Reverb found on the Strum Buddy. Whether you’re at home or on the road, either Strum Buddy makes a great practice/rehearsal tool when you’re away from your main, stage rig.
NOTE : Safe to use with nitrocellulose lacquer guitar finishes
