“CAMPER CX” AND A CUSTOM-RACK
Today a very special “Camper CX” has been finished. The customer wanted a suitable
rack and here is the result. This thing has definitely style and also sounds really good.
“SPARK FULL STACK CUSTOM”
A BlueAmps “Spark Full Stack Custom” for Jochen Thiele from Gooseflesh! The stack has 2 extras, which we had never built before.
1. On top of it comes a pretty board for a rack, so the top of the amp will not be damaged. The board has mounted feet that hook onto the amp. No slipping.
2. On the panel of the subwoofer, a switch is installed, which can switch the upper crossover frequency of the subs between 100 and 800 Hz. We will explain the meaning behind it in the future.

VALHALLIR.AT – THE NEW STAR OF IMPULSE RESPONSES!
IRs for modelers there are like sand at the sea, but fantastic IRs are few. The more I am delighted that a few capable people have put VALHALLIR on their feet. Check it out – it’s really worth it!
ANOTHER “SPARK” + CUSTOM-RACK
Today a customer gets a “Spark” and a “Custom Rack” built according to his specifications. In the rack comes an Axe-FX. I do not have to say anything else. The carbon looks really great.
CUSTOM-RACK FOR AN AXE-FX II
A customer with a BlueAmps “Spark Full Stack” (photo left) wanted to have a rack for his Axe-FX II to match the amp. The top of the rack should have a height unit for extra air and a visual appearance of a Marshall Plexi. That’s why I pulled up a strip of piping on top. In the “Custom Rack” for a Kemper rack, the rack closes flush at the rear. In the Axe-FX version, I had to make the rack longer, because the Ax-FX is deeper. The feet are then so attached that they stand on the screw heads of the “Spark” and thus the rack can not slip. On the photos of the “Custom Rack” rack you can see my own “Spark” for demonstration purposes, which is why it does not match visually.
A BLUEAMPS “HOME” WITH FENDER FRONT
AN UPGRADE FOR A “BLUE 3”
The “Blue 3” of a customer is already more than 3 years old and should be extended by a “Blue 3 Sub”. In the same train I have the “Blue 3” still the new logo and new corners missed, so that the stack looks beautifully uniform
And this is by the way the cable kit, which connects the “Blue 3” to the subwoofer. It is made by us out of high quality parts (Neutrik, Cordial, Sommer).

NEW VIDEO FROM MARTELLE
Martelle can be heard again. Here with his BlueAmps “112 ASM”…
BLUEAMPS “SPARK FULL STACK CUSTOM” + “CUSTOM RACK”
Here is the promised photo of the new Custom Rack and a Kemper. It´s available for Axe-FX, Helix and other modelers.
BLUEAMPS “CUSTOM RACK”
Do you remember the “Spark Full Stack” from last week? The customer has now played his first live show and still had an idea: “Cool would still be a rack on top of that, where my Kemper can be inserted and that looks like the cabinets. Can you build something like that?” Yes, we can! You can see the result here.
I recently had 2 Bose 251 for repair. Quite simple, loud, and as usual with Bose: very expensive! There an idea came to me: How about a very small stereo-amp for home, where you can listen to normal music? .. Now it´s ready!
- 2x 45 watts stereo out of two 5″ broadband speakers
- 70-15.000 Hz (-6 dB)
- 2x mono jack inputs 6,3 mm
- 1x stereo jack input 3,5 mm
- bluetooth interface for mobile or tablet
- 38 x 20 x 25 cm (w x h x d)
A small, nice amp for your home. Its name: BlueAmps “Home”
PASSIVE CUSTOM FRFR CAB
Here is the result of a custom order: The customer wanted a passive, as small as possible and linear box with a 12 inch speaker, which exactly fits under his rack and his existing power amplifier. 200 watts RMS, 8 ohms, 54x41x38 cm, Speakon-in, efficiency and not even expensive. Task completed. 🙂
A NEW CUSTOM AMP: BLUEAMPS “112 ASM”
Andreas Schmid-Martelle remains faithful to us and has been able to tailor an FRFR amp with the BlueAmps “112 ASM”. It is a small, efficient active box with linear frequency response, equipped with a 12 inch speaker and a titanium tweeter. 180 watts RMS. Lacquered with black Warnex and s custom case from aweo, which can be used as a riser for the amp on stage. The BlueAmps “112 ASM” will now be available as a vertical version (as shown in the picture) and also as a horizontally constructed cabinet. The case is available as an option, also vertically and horizontally. Black lacquer and all synthetic leather varieties are available as a coating. Also the type of the front is freely selectable.
MARTELLE AND BLUEAMPS AT THE 21th NEW ORLEANS JAZZ FESTIVAL
Andreas Schmid-Martelle was on the 27th of June with his band “Tommie Harris & The Seventh Son” at the “21st New Orleans Jazz Festival” in Magdeburg. One reason for me to meet him after a long working relationship, and a reason for him to play a BlueAmps “Spark Full Stack” on the gig. What can I say? Super nice guy, great and playful band, great sound and a satisfied Martelle! It should be that way. 🙂
“ARE YOUR AMPS FROM CHINA?”
I was asked on the phone the other day. No they are not. Development work and production are carried out exclusively in Germany. All by the way, by hand. There is no other way, if the amps are cut to the customers. Each customer determines which leather imitation (for our amps no animal dies!) And which front is covered and whether a volume control, lighter neodymium speaker and / or a bluetooth interface should be installed. Our used housing material is 15 mm MPX. Road-ready and soundly far forward. For Asian products it is unfortunately often only chipboard or MDF, which can have a negative impact when the box is often transported or even gets wet. There are, of course, also disadvantages. Low prices have mostly nothing to do with quality.
NEW DEVELOPMENT FOR KPA-SOLUTIONS FINISHED
It is a passive box, which can be operated as FRFR (full range flat response up to 15 kHz) and GFR (guitar flat response up to 10 kHz). This leaves open both possibilities to the user. 12-inch speaker, small tweeter, 8 ohms and 230 watts loadable. And the bang: The system is available as a kit! You only need an empty box from Palmer (98 Euro from Thomann, for example) and order the kit from KPA-Solutions. Simple and above all cheaper one does not come to a FRFR-Box of this quality.
