Tiny & Truly Gigable

For musicians who value portability as much as performance, Henriksen’s “The Bud” has a lot to offer. This feature-rich, 120-watt amp delivers cleaner-than-clean tone from your electric or acoustic guitar—and at 9 inches on each side of the cube and just 17 pounds, it’s easy to bring to every gig. The Bud has two identical preamps, each with independent five-band EQ, TRS send/return FX loops, reverb, full 48-volt phantom power, and an input gain control to adjust for different pickups. It’s ideal for solo shows, and has volume enough for performances with the whole band, too.

Versatile Feature Set

Along with an auxiliary input on channel 1, you’ll find a bright switch on channel 2 for instruments that need more high-end push. The balanced XLR on the back of the amp is post-EQ, post-reverb, and both channels summed (meaning the signal you send to the house is the same one you’re hearing from the speaker), and the FX loop can be used for pre-EQ and individual channel. There’s a headphone jack, and for more sound pressure, a parallel extension speaker output. The 6.5-inch Eminence Beta speaker fills the room with sound, and the fluid-cooled, high-yield neodymium tweeter can be switched on or off based on your needs.

I don't mean to undermine everything you just said but I'm going to undermine everything you just said. I have no foul intentions but I can't allow you to blindly lie in my face as a guitarist of 15 years. I think you'd be surprised how loud a Fender amp can get and still be crystal clean. I have a USA Hot Rod Deluxe 40W 1x12 and I can't even turn it past 1 and that is gigging volume. That's volume efficiency. Yes, it's heavy. Yes, it's a stadium amp. Yes, it's cheaper. I won't go citing the massive list of Jazz artists that use Fender amps because it would encompass this entire post, but you get the picture. A 15W Bassbreaker wouldn't just be louder, clean, because of any misconception in wattage discrepancy, it would be louder because it has a larger, more efficient speaker. A 12" ceramic magnet Celestion V-Type none the less, that speaker on its own is $100, the Eminence Beta 6.5" speaker found in this amp is only $60 of the cost, again making me question where the money actually goes in this amp. The speaker in this amp is not a guitar voiced speaker, it is a speaker you would find in an Active PA system as a Bass or Midrange driver. But don't listen to me on that, here's the spec sheet. http://www.eminence.com/speakers/speaker-detail/?model=Beta_6A Also, the alternatives use Valves, which means you get a beautiful, dynamic harmonic response. This is something solid state amps can not do. Not gonna lie, I don't need to own either amp to say that this wouldn't even come close to the volume of the 15W Bassbreaker, clean, purely based on the speaker size. I've played enough small speakers to know. This is an amp aimed directly at the small-gigs-only Jazz artists with more money than sense, it was a fad started at last years Spring NAMM show and it didn't catch on. This is not the only amp in this category that didn't catch on and is 'on sale' now. If I was a Jazz artist and I was going for beautiful cleans for small gigs, I'd be going with the all-new for this year Roland 'JC-40' Stereo Jazz Chorus 2x10" 40W. Yes, Roland brought it back. It's a better amp in all regards bar portability. If you want something that does this job of being a perfectly clean representation of what you are producing, do yourself a favour and buy a small active PA, because that's all this is. Sorry.
