Henrikson amplifiers designs high quality guitar amplifiers, hand built in Colorado USA. The Blu 6 amp is a single channel version of Henriksen’s most popular amp, The Bud, and weighs in at an astonishing 12 pounds while maintaining 120 watts of incredible headroom to cover almost any gig with all the features you need.
From Henriksen –
“We wanted to create a single channel version of our enormously successful amp, The Bud, but we also wanted to try a slightly different design concept which allows us to keep the same great sound but 5 lbs lighter! At 12 lbs and 120 watts with all the essential features and Bluetooth auxiliary channel, The Blu is professional-grade through and through with the same great tone as The Bud. In the beginning, Bud Henriksen’s goal was to create a small, simple, plug-n-play amplifier that sounded great and was loud enough to gig. His original amplifiers had a blue painted baffle, so we used that as the inspiration for The Blu’s design.
The Blu has a 5-band graphic EQ, FX loop, reverb, full 48 volt phantom power and a Bluetooth auxiliary input for backing tracks or set break music. There is also a studio-grade balanced XLR line out, a headphone output, and a parallel extension speaker output to make full use of The Blu’s output power."

This amp is in brand new condition. It was bought new late last year by its one owner, used sporadically at home, and has lived quiet life inside its snug fitting Heriksen soft gig bag.
Which is not to say this is a soft or quiet amp – just the opposite in fact. It is a very compact package that delivers an amazing 120 watts of super clean amplification. You’ll probably never use a quarter of its capacity, but it’s there if you need it. Every person we have shown it to in our showroom has been amazed at the clean power of this titanic but tiny amp.
And it’s not all about power. This Blu 6 delivers exquisite, accurate guitar tone at any volume. Its clarity and depth is amazing. It will deliver uncoloured amplification of your actual instrument, not someone else’s idea of what it should sound like.
The five way tone circuit is comprehensive, transparent and precise. You can shape your sound to perfection with accurate EQ such as this. And then reverb is natural, uncoloured and lush.
The Blu SIX is being widely used by archtop, fingerstyle, jazz and acoustic players in Europe & USA, and its reputation is building worldwide.
This one is 240v so no stepdown transformer required in Oz.
Comes in its Henriksen gig bag in new condition.
