A Full Studio, On The Go

The Headrush Core Guitar FX Amp Modeller and Vocal Processor is an extremely interesting piece of kit. Blending the realms of guitar pedal stacks and vocal modular boxes, this portable floor unit can do so much that you hardly need anything else. From emulating cabs, running custom pedal patches and playing backing tracks; to vocal amplification and effects, from autotune to harmonies. And better yet, the Headrush Core can do them both at the same time. A touring duo? Guitar and a vocalist? Or perhaps you're a solo act with an axe and some pipes. The Core caters to all. There simply is nothing better or more intuitive when it comes to gigging or running as a session musician.

So Many Ways To Plug And Play



Say you have all of your backing tracks or rehearsal tracks on a thumb drive. Well, you can plug that into the Headrush Core and play them through the unit. No thumb drive? Use a cable and load them onto the device itself! No cable? Well, now you’re pushing it, but no matter! Use wifi and Dropbox to get your tunes onto the Core that way. This is one example of the limitless nature of this beast. When it comes to setting up foot switch patches there is an insane amount of customisation all to be done through an interface that is so simple you could figure it out with your eyes closed. From unpacking the unit to gigging with it every night, the Headrush Core feels like it was designed for performers…

A Limitless Board Of Colour And Sound

And that’s because it was. It houses everything you need to perfect your sound, take it on the road, play to audiences, record in studios, or even straight to a laptop. It has everything you need but a speaker to plug it into (and the venue usually has some of those anyway). At £759.00 on Gear 4 Music this piece of kit is a steal in the long run and a great buy in the short. A wonderfully adept performer companion that could take you all around the world.
