Universal Audio has a long history of creating authentic digital emulations of classic analog designs. Today, UA announced three new amp emulation stompboxes, adding to the brand's current collection of popular UAFX pedals. The new Dream ‘65 Reverb Amplifier ($399), Ruby ’63 Top Boost Amplifier ($399) and Woodrow ’55 Instrument Amplifier ($399) UAFX pedals utilize powerful dual-engine processing and world-class UAD modeling to recreate the sound and feel of three timeless amps. 

Each pedal features six knobs, three switches and two footswitches for dialing in a wide range of tones. Choose between three classic speaker models or download the free UAFX Control app for three additional speaker and cab emulations. Best of all, each pedal accepts both Hi-Z and line-level signals, making the new UAFX pedals perfect for replacing your amp rig and going direct to front-of-house on stage or recording directly into your DAW in the studio. With custom mic and speaker pairings derived from UA’s award-winning OX Amp Top Box, the new UAFX amp emulators deliver inspiring, album-ready studio tones at the flip of a switch.

We recently had the chance to jam out with the new UAFX pedals alongside some of our friends at the Vintage King Nashville Showroom. Watch below as VK’s own Kevin Schuck walks us through each of the new pedals and hear as professional guitarists Lindsey Miller and Gideon Boley shred a few licks using the new Dream, Ruby and Woodrow UAFX pedals.

Dream '65 Pedal faithfully captures the immersive sound of real tube-powered spring reverb and vibrato, making this pedal perfect for a wide range of genres. Plus, Dream '65 features settings for custom mods made famous by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Steve Lukather.
