Thank you for the kind words! We're very proud of this (and our recent gang of releases) and glad you like what you hear. As a longtime fan, I have been excited over this for a while. Glad we can finally share it with all of you.

The Pick & Mix Group Buy started before this release and this is not a part of that promotion

Definitely gonna have to demo this for sure though. It's a toss-up between MODO drums and this I guess. I'm a drummer at heart and a crappy guitarist when I'm making music and yet this is the one that excites me more!
He does have and use a Red Special for a lot of his Queen work but he's used various guitars for the AmpliTube Brian May materials - I'm told we'll have another video from him using a guitar that is not a Red Special to show off how the Red Special stomp works (and from experience using it for a while it sure does!!). You should definitely give the demo a try too, the presets are really great to start (I hadn't used them until very recently and was also able to make great Brian May - and other - tones easily even without them).

It's interesting to hear the sounds in isolation.
YES! Jamie is amazing. Thanks for posting this.
