MGP-1A Modeling Guitar Preamp

Meet the Black Widow Audio Designs MGP-1A Modeling Guitar Preamplifier, the world's first all-tube modeling preamp. Our patent pending VEnuM All-Tube Modeling Technology uses four 12AX7 vacuum tubes to accurately model 18 of the most famous guitar preamplifiers in history. There is no digital or solid-state circuitry in the signal path.

We will soon be starting a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for producing the 1st batch of these beasts. This website is a way for you to meet us and our revolutionary 1st product. Everything we can tell you is here; if it isn't you can always contact us. So have a look around and prepare to be amazed. This is only the start.
