The 8180 Monster Tube Guitar Amplifier plugin is the landmark for heavy and rock guitar sounds. If you are looking out for a modern and rich high gain tone ideal for the most aggressive rock and metal genre, then your search ends here!

Nembrini Audio has carefully modeled the fabulous tone of the original 120-watt all tube American guitar head still used today by many guitar gods all around the world.

Four virtual 12AX7 pre-amp valves and four virtual 6L6GC power-amp valves drive two channels with independent controls for volume and gain, low, mid and high shared equalizer controls and exclusive power amp resonance and presence controls.

- Rhythm channel: you can achieve from crystal clean tones to powerful crunch sounds.
- Lead channel: ready for harmonic-rich rock tones and super screaming metal drive sounds.

The 8180 Monster Tube Guitar Amplifier includes a complete recording chain emulation and our custom design noise gate circuit.

One of my favorites by Nembrini.

There’s Not much available to do good metal and rock on iOS. Nembrini is certainly the only player on the guitar amp field and this one in particular is one I had been waiting for a long time.

Now that Nembrini’s apps have AUv3 parameter automation, they are very robust apps which you probably won’t want to buy because of the cost until you do and realize they were totally worth it anyway.

Great sound, this one and the PSA are probably my favorites.

Great Amp!

Super sweet tones... which get even better if you use your own IR’s.

Thank you nembrini for another killer amp.
