IK Multimedia AmpliTube Brian May

AmpliTube 5 collection carefully replicating Brian May's rig including 2 amps, 3 cabinets, and 5 stompbox effects, all modeled under his supervision
MFR# 1049-213

Product Description

A special guitar, one-of-a-kind gear, unmistakable sound. Brian May’s guitar tone has powered some of the biggest rock anthems the world has ever heard. His intricately-layered harmonized leads, muscular rhythm guitar, and sweet clean tones blazed a path for rock guitarists, proving that rock music can have both brains and brawn. Available in a convenient desktop app and plug-in for your DAW, IK Multimedia AmpliTube Brian May carefully replicates his rig, including 2 amps, 3 cabinets, and 5 stompbox effects, all modeled with the supervision of May himself.

It all starts with the guitar

As much as the effects and amplifiers, the true key to May’s tone is his Red Special guitar. In the early 1960s, Brian and his father built this guitar from materials they had on hand, including wood from their fireplace mantel and springs from a motorbike! Even the Burns Tri-Sonic pickups were altered.

For AmpliTube Brian May, IK went the extra mile to develop a new stompbox effect to help simulate the tone and controls of the Red Special itself.

What’s included in AmpliTube Brian May

AmpliTube Brian May features 10 brand new models including 2 amps, 3 cabinets and 5 stomps created to recreate both the guitar and gear Brian used live and in the studio. A new pedal modeling his Red Special guitar, the unique home-built “Deacy” Amp (with adjustable battery power!), the famous triple-amp setup, his tone-shaping effects, and even a harmonizer so you can nail those Queen leads and go Headlong into the tone that sparked a rock revolution – they’re all here.

2 Amplifiers

  • BM 30: Based on the classic triple VOX AC30 setup, this model offers 3 amps with the effects chain in a Wet-Dry-Wet configuration to match Brian May’s iconic setup
  • BM DK: Originally created by John Deacon, after modifying an old radio, this small amp soon became the trademark sound of many Queen songs

3 Cabinets

  • 2x12 BM 30 Blue: Triple cabinet based on the cab section of VOX AC30 equipped with with Celestion Alnico Blue speakers
  • 2x12 BM 30 H70: Triple cabinet based on the cab section of VOX AC30 equipped with with Celestion G12H Anniversary speakers
  • 1x6 BM DK: Cabinet section of the BM DK amp, featuring a 6” speaker, modeled after the mysterious “Deacy” amp

5 Stompboxes

  • Red Special: Created by a detailed study of Brian May’s famous guitar, this helps add the unique tonality and controls of the Red Special itself
  • Treble Booster: Based on the original KAT Treble Booster, this stompbox effect will enrich your guitar tone similar to Brian May’s by boosting it before it reaches the amp
  • May Wah: Based on a rack-mount Dunlop Cry Baby wah, modeled in the exact configurations Brian uses to shape his tone
  • FOX Phaser: Based on fOXX Foot Phaser, a pedal-controlled phaser with a unique and distinctive sound
  • Star Gate: This noise gate helps clean up the signal chain, minimizing the noise feeding Brian’s unique amp and pedal setup
