Its compact design and light weight of less than 20 kg enables convenient transport with only one hand. Configured for horizontal or vertical operation with rotatable logo, this compact 2x12“ cabinet is an ideal partner for the BluGuitar® AMP1, lunchbox amps and “classic“ 100w heads.
TWINCAB can be operated in both mono and stereo with its tonality characterized by accurate bass, warm and full mids, as well as soft highs with balanced frequency projection. The closed back design with two bass reflex openings at the front give the cabinet extra low end response while the basket weave front cloth works like a filter that reduces harshness ensuring silky high frequencies. Depending on the way of operation you get two different sound characters featuring either more bass or mids.
The "BG-12 Special Speaker" speaker specifically developed for the TWINCAB is harmoniously tuned to the reinforced birch multiplex housing.
TWINCAB comes complete with a robust, padded protective cover.

THE 4 PREAMPS OF THE AMP1™ IRIDIUM EDITION
Three independent, discrete OVERDRIVE channels deliver rich and tight distortion sounds that can be changed in gain structure and timbre. Each of these channels offers different attack, response and dynamics. The CLEAN channel with its massive headroom and treble reserves gives even mid-heavy humbuckers transparent, sparkling clean sounds.
MODERN – With its extremely high gain reserves, this channel delivers crystal-clear string separation through a massive low-cut, and the Custom Control TONE knob lets you dial from a “cut thru the mix” solo sound to the typical “maximum brutality” mid scoop.
CLASSIC – Due to the hard distortion characteristics and the specially tuned bass filter, this channel is percussive and significantly wider and harder in the mid-range than VINTAGE. The mid-range can be shaped by the Custom Control TONE from “Hot Rodded British High Gain” to “German wall of sound“.
VINTAGE – Tight and mid-emphasized woody sounds that are transmitted tightly especially using extreme low tunings while delivering creamy mid- range distortion.
CLEAN – Massive headroom thanks to the 100 watt power amp and treble reserves, which give even mid-emphasized humbuckers a transparent, sparkling clean sound. Optimal platform for pedals like shimmer reverb, modulation or delay.
BOOST & NOISE GATE
The AMP1™ Iridium Edition features an adjustable gain/boost function that is placed in front of all four channels like a pedal, as well as a metal-essential, high-efficiency noise gate with three different levels of sensitivity.
BOOST – Use the custom control knob to adjust the amount of gain. It has a moderate mid hump to give cleaner sounds more definition, or to give overdriven sounds more gain without turning muddy.
Cranked all the way up, it will sound more like an overdriven preamp or a Tube Screamer, giving you even richer tones for creamy yet tight overdrive sounds.
NOISE GATE – The Noise Gate offers three positions:
METAL: Extremely fast and hard. High gain playing and staccato riffs become sharper, and palm muted parts clean up with no unwanted noise.
OFF: In this position, the noise gate is deactivated.
SOFT: In this position the Noise Gate is extremely sensitive and responds to the lowest signals, so the quietest nuances are still audible without being cut off.
The loudspeaker simulation of the AMP1™ Iridium Edition is analog and is voiced specially for metal sounds. A special Current Feedback creates an authentic tube amp feel with punch and bite.
In order to realize even more authentic loudspeaker simulations, "IR" (impulse responses) are also often used. To do this, the internal (analog) speaker simulation of the AMP1™ Iridium Edition can be turned off, so you can use the impulse responses of your favorite cabinet.

BLUGUITAR AMP X : The future of guitar amplification
With four decades of being a sound designer, BluGuitar owner Thomas Blug came up with the idea of creating an all analog Nanotube™ guitar amp design that is fexible enough to (re)-create any amp that he could think of - those that have excited us in the past as well as any ideas that might come in the futue.
With this in mind, Thomas and his team developed the gound-breaking Neural Analog Amp™ design, which offers the capab...ility to edit and save analog circuit parameters at a component level - like a „virtual soldering iron“ for analog amp tuning, using a state-of-the-art 8-core processor.
Combined with BluGuitar’s 100 watts Nanotube™ power amp stage, wouldn’t this be the most powerful guitar amplifier ever
... a collection of the best tube amps of all time, in fully analog original quality, united in a single device.
... you could freely combine these amps with all your favorite effects (analog, digital, mono, stereo) and an extensive speaker collection (based on IRs, with great dynamics) and store them in presets.
... a huge online library of vintage amps. You'd find rare classics, priceless boutique amps, and unique sounds that you can transfer to your amp at any time.
... your whole guitar rig shrinks down to just one pedal-sized device.
