The Black Spirit 200 floorboard can re-create practically any iconic amplifier without ever digitizing your signal. It’s called the Spirit Tone Generator, and it actually re-creates famous amp topologies by switching around analog components.
Tubes get all the glory, but every component in a tube amplifier plays a huge role in the final sound, and the Black Spirit 200 floorboard's Spirit Tone Generator switches in whichever components are necessary to achieve the sound of classic amps.
The Black Spirit 200 floorboard has all the features found in the Black Spirit head and combo amps, including 200 watts of power and an integrated Red Box AE+ speaker emulation output.
This amp has the sonic versatility of the Spirit Tone Generator with the practical functionality of the FSM-432 MIDI footswitch. There are true bypass pre-loops and a dedicated monitor input for convenience.
