The Bud: The Ultimate Singer Songwriter Amplifier Solution.
The Bud is simply the best amplifier for singer-songwriters; it sounds better, it’s louder, it’s smaller, it’s simple to operate and has every feature you could need as a gigging solo or small group artist. Unlike other portable amplifiers for singer-songwriters on the market, it sounds just as good with voice as it does with instruments, can be easily transported with one hand and will fill a large room without the need for a PA system.
The Bud amp from Henriksen will change the way you gig; it will amplify your acoustic guitar while maintaining the guitar’s natural tone, as well as amplifying your vocals at TRULY-GIGABLE volumes through two completely separate channels with a single trip from the car. Now you can replace your acoustic guitar amp and your PA system with one 9x9x9 inch, 17lb box AND improve your acoustic guitar tone.

Here they are performing Dave’s original tune, “Demons and You.” They are running acoustic guitar (with a monster fx board) and vocals through one Bud Amplifier and electric guitar (with a monster fx board) and vocals through another Bud Amplifier.
Dave Tamkin explains how to use The Bud Amplifiers FX Loop. The FX loops send the signal from the amp post-EQ and return it pre-reveb.
