Ampete 444 Midi Amp/Cabinet Switching System · Little Helper
The 444 is the first complete switching solution right out of the box. If you are a well equipped guitarist and sound enthusiast, a touring Pro Musician, a Studio Engineer, or just a gearfreak as we are, who’s not willing to swap his beloved tube amps against one of those soulless, simulating, digital boxes out there - this surely is the missing piece in your arsenal!
Don’t read any further if you are looking for a handy all-in-one amplifier.
If you have several amps and cabs, and love them all for a reason? Let´s say ...that Boogie for the rich and chimy clean sound, that Friedman for the tight and overwhelming rhythm, that Diezel for its heavy chunk and that Bogner for that singing leads... that open 2x12 for bringing out the best of your clean sound, those 4x12 Greenbacks for your crunch, don´t want to miss that aggression of those V30´s or the extra bit of flavour of those Scumbags? The Ampete Spyder lets you switch between any of those combinations with a flip of a switch!
Choose from any of the 4 capable Heads (1 at a time), combine it any of the 4 capable Cabs (up to 2 at a time).

This amp and speaker cabinet switching device is a must have if you want to combine your heads with your speaker cabinets. It is easy to install and it allows you to use the effects loop to be switched between the amps. I combine the Ampete444 with a Radial JX44 so I have 4 instruments hooked up, a remote FX loop connected and all rack mounted so I can run 4 heads, 4 speaker cabinets and 3 combos - all controlled through a single Midi controller - that is the maximum flexibility you can get.
I recommend the Ampete444 as a real work horse when it comes to sound selection and live performance- you can really switch through any combination while playing and that does give you the response you're looking for!
