Henriksen The Bud

We've been selling a lot of great amps for a long time, but The Bud from Henriksen is the first totally new acoustic amp in years that I think is truly worth a listen. 

It's smaller than the AER Compact 60 (though not quite as light), so it's super-portable. It packs an astonishing 135 watts of clean, flat, punchy power, such that it will easily cover a small room or even larger venues. And check out this feature set:  Separate, identical preamps for its two channels, 48 volt phantom power, and really musical EQ (at least for the acoustic guitars I've run through this amp). You're going to love it.

  • 135 watts
  • 17 lbs
  • 9″x 9″x 9″
  • Two channels with EQ, reverb, and phantom powered combo inputs
  • Independent tweeter power switch
  • 6.5″ Eminence Beta speaker with special fluid-cooled, high-yield neodymium tweeter

It is indeed one of the best small amps I have tried.

I have been searching for a small guitar amps for a long time. I was so glad that I finally tried the Bud. I have tried a semi-hollow guitar with P90 pickups, a martin acoustic, and a taylor GS mini with this amp. They all sound very descent. The sound is very clean. When the tweeter is turned off, I can easily get a very warm sound. The bud can easily cut through the mix. I played it against a very heavy drummer and a bass player, and the bud gave out more than enough volume. The 5 band EQ is very very useful. I can get the tone I want easily in all kind of rooms. The portability is great. I don't have to make several trips between the stage and my car anymore.

Great Acoustic Amp

The Bud was the final stop on a long journey to find the right acoustic amp. It's tone, power, clarity, and the "lack of weight" made it the perfect solution. John was wonderful to work with shipping other amps back and forth into the Midwest until we landed on the Bud. Could not be happier with his customer service and advice - The Bud is second to none!

Little big Amp

I have had the The bud for over a month now and I am very satisfied. The sound and the warmth that comes from the amp was just what I was looking for. I sing and play, this amp covers both aspects in a unique fashion. Plus the portability is unbeatable. Thanks Bud

Great little jazz amp

I was looking for an amp for a warm jazz tone without the problems of a vintage Polytone amp. The Bud meets my need and is smaller and lighter. Great little amp for electric or acoustic.

Very cool little amp...

Plenty of tone, plenty of power, not much bulk; plenty of amp for the gigs I'm playing these days. I like it, and would recommend it to anyone needing a quality amp in a highly portable package.
