Peavey Electronics and Agile Partners, along with our friends at Guitar World and SoundCloud, are excited to announce the AmpKit Ultimate Tone Contest! Enter one of your amazing AmpKit recording sessions for a chance to win a Peavey Classic 30/112 amplifier and other prizes! AmpKit is available in two versions:
AmpKit, a free app, available on the iTunes App Store, comes with a Peavey ValveKing amp (clean and very-high-gain lead channels), two ValveKing cabinets (4x12 and 1x12), two pedals (Noise Gate, Elevenizer overdrive pedal), two mics (Workhorse 57 dynamic mic, Germann 87 condenser mic), and a built-in Noise & Feedback Filter.
AmpKit+ is a paid app ($19.99 in the US App Store) that includes everything in the free version PLUS the following additional gear at less than half their individual prices: Peavey 3120 amp with clean, rhythm, and ultra-high-gain lead channels and matching 4x12 cabinet; Colonel Vintage amp paired with matching 4x10 and 1x12 cabinets; Vintage Brit amp with matching 2x12 cabinet; and distortion, fuzz, compressor, chorus, phaser, flanger, reverb, and 10-band EQ pedals!
How to Enter:
1. Join the SoundCloud group called the "AmpKit Ultimate Tone Contest."
2. Record your own awesome AmpKit session (between 30 and 90 seconds long)
3. Send your session directly from AmpKit to SoundCloud, including details about your amp & pedal setup in the Track Description.
Grand Prize: A Peavey Classic 30/112 amp! Born and built where it all began, the Peavey Classic® Series has evolved in the Mississippi Delta since 1973. All vintage vibes, versatility and wailing gain possibilities, these amplifiers come alive with the magic combination of 12AX7 and EL84 tubes and a timeless design from one of music's enduring innovators. This is the same Classic amp we modeled in AmpKit, and is one of our favorites.
In addition, five lucky entrants will be randomly drawn to receive a one-year subscription to Guitar World Magazine and their choice of GuitarToolkit, TabToolkit or AmpKit+!
Submit your AmpKit recording before Midnight EST, Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010. The Grand Prize winner will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges:
Rusty Cooley - Renowned shred guitarist and Peavey artist
Hartley Peavey - Founder & CEO, Peavey Electronics Corporation
Brad Tolinkski - Editor-in-Chief, Guitar World Magazine
The judges will apply the following criteria to select the Grand Prize winner: guitar playing quality, performance quality (i.e., played with passion, from your heart), and tone quality based on the creative use of AmpKit gear.
The Grand Prize winner and five randomly selected contest participants will be announced before 6:00 pm EST on Monday, November 8th, 2010 and contacted via a SoundCloud message.
We can't wait to listen to your entry. Good luck!
