The innovative mobile guitar app that rocks the iPhone is now a finalist in the 2011 SXSW Interactive Awards, and the call is out for AmpKit™ fans to vote now for their favorite app in the SXSW People’s Choice Awards.

AmpKit, an unparalleled guitar amp and effects iPhone application launched by musical-instrument and sound equipment innovator Peavey® Electronics and 2010 Apple Design Award winner Agile Partners, is a finalist in the Mobile category of the SXSW Interactive Awards, which covers sites, applications and experiences for handheld and portable devices.

All finalists are also eligible for the SXSW Interactive People's Choice Award, which goes to the finalist that gets the most votes from the interactive community.

AmpKit players and fans can vote now for AmpKit at http://sxsw.com/interactive/awards/peoples-choice. Voting ends on March 1 at 6 p.m. CT.

AmpKit and AmpKit LiNK, a high-fidelity audio interface for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, together provide musicians of all skill levels with a powerful and convenient way to jam with high-quality tones anytime and anywhere.

The AmpKit LiNK interface raises the audio fidelity bar for the iPhone platform. AmpKit LiNK is designed for electric guitar, bass, or any line level source, and features an output that can be connected to headphones, powered speakers or a P.A. AmpKit LiNK's revolutionary CrossTalk Eliminator solves the feedback problem inherent in existing unpowered iPhone interfaces. The interface can be used with any recording, processing, or tuning application.

“Peavey is deeply committed to virtual instrumentation innovation, and products like our award-winning ReValver™ modeling software are leading the way,” said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics. “AmpKit and AmpKit LiNK open up an entirely new mobile paradigm for beginner and experienced musicians alike and give guitarists a whole new level of freedom and convenience. With AmpKit and AmpKit LiNK, anyone can access amazing guitar tone even when they don't have the space and time to set up a conventional rig."

AmpKit is available in two versions on the iTunes App Store:

  • AmpKit is a free app that includes the Peavey ValveKing® amp, two ValveKing cabinets, two pedals, two mics and a variety of built-in features including recording, re-amping, backing tracks, tuner and metronome.
  • AmpKit+ is a paid app ($19.99 in the U.S. App Store) that bundles three additional amps, four more cabinets, eight additional pedals, and six more mics, at less than half their individual prices.
  • Both versions of AmpKit include an in-app Gear Store where additional gear can be purchased either a la carte or as part of significantly discounted bundles.
  • AmpKit LiNK is available for $39.99 U.S. from authorized dealers.
