Record through Suhr's original high-gain amplifier.

The Suhr® SE100 amplifier was one of John Suhr’s first designs; a hand-wired, single-channel specimen that took the “modded Marshall” concept a step further, with unprecedented touch sensitivity and unrelenting amounts of gain.

Developed by Brainworx — and fully endorsed by John Suhr — the Suhr SE100 Amplifier plug-in perfectly captures the original amplifier's tonal array, expertly emulating its custom "plexi-style" transformers and EL34-powered output section. And it’s available exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.

Now You Can:

Use your UA Interface to track through the Suhr SE100 — with no latency

Audition 120 high-end recording chains, featuring multiple cabinets and classic microphones

Shape tones further with FX Rack’s Vintage Delay, noise gate, high/low filters, and more

Easily craft dynamic clean, crunch, and hot-rodded British tones with exquisitely-voiced tone controls

Single-Channel Madness

Single-Channel Madness

The Suhr SE100 began its life as a highly lusted after preamp mod for vintage Marshalls. Soon after, the circuit found its way into the legendary CAA 3+ preamp used by Steve Lukather, Michael Landau, Scott Henderson, and Eddie Van Halen on VH’s 1991, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge album. Soon after, Suhr incorporated the design into the EL34-powered SE100 amplifier.

Designed with Suhr SE100 power user, and rock specialist Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), the Suhr SE100 plug-in artfully captures the original hardware’s copious amount of gain, touch-sensitive response, and 100-watt aggression for rock tones that are truly earth shaking.

The Suhr SE100 plug-in offers additional control over your tones via the Brainworx FX Rack. It features a Noise Gate, switchable high and low-pass filters, and a Power Soak circuit that allows you to dial in as much power amp goodness as you want, without having to crank the output gain.

The Suhr SE100 also includes 120 impulse response Recording Chains that were captured from several boutique cabinets and recorded through Brainworx's vintage Neve console with an array of high-end and vintage microphones and outboard gear, giving you "record ready" tones, instantly.

The best yet

When you have a good tone it’s more fun to play. This sim this by far the best I’ve come across. The gain and delay options make it my go to.

Now this sounds like an amp!!

It's weird that no one talks about this amp sim, because the sound just jumps out of the speakers in the most badass way and is so much fun to play. And the presets rock so much that I might not even bother coming up with my own.

Lead Amp

Old rocker here -- I tried all the UAD amp plugins and this one feel the most like a great live amp/speaker combination for lead work. It lacks nothing. As much gain as you want to eat (it screams on 5). It can do other things, but it excels as a lead amp and for heavy rock rhythm playing.

I'm really satisfied.

I could have made a cleantone with my own equipment, but I wanted a unique, sharp sound of Gain, and this Amp satisfied me with the lack of space. I love it.

Unlocks Creativity!!

The sounds that I can dial in really unlocks my creativity and inspires me to write some songs (which I guess is what it´s all about!!)

AMAZING amp sim !

This is an amazing amp sim. One of the best high gain tones in a plug-in. Together with Unison technology it offers unrivaled authenticity in tone and feel. Warm and beefy tone with nice British midrange bark and very smooth gain structure. This amp sim also takes pedals really well. Sounds especially good with Tubescreamer in front of it.

Nice high gain sound and character.

The SUHR amp sims on UAD by brainworx are the only ones I've thought worth buying. Still prefer my tube amp and analog pedals, but this is a good alternative for when I don't want to wake up the entire neighbourhood.

What a pleasant surprise!

I'm not much for Plug-ins and love using real amps, but Wow! was I surprised with this one. This amp sounds and feels very natural with plenty of gain to go around. The amp has the Marshall vibe with many great options to choose from. If you're looking for a classic amp vibe then this is the one.

Great amp sim!

I had demoed this plugin a couple of times in the past, and was always floored. Recently got a load box to play my amps without a cabinet and this holds up in tone and in feel, which most sims don't even get close. Well done
