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

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.

정말 좋은 앰프입니다~~ 추천해요!

기존의 SE100 을 만지는것같은 느낌 이였고 SE100을 마이킹해도 이정도 소리를 내가 뽑아낼수있을까 싶어요~~!!! 20배가 넘는 이익을 얻은것 같아서 너무 기분이 좋습니다.

Nice!

Little brighter than the PT100... again... no need to mic a cab with this guy on board. Just awesome!

Fun as hell to play!

Very versatile, you can roll input and gain down to get a great clean sound. Then of course all sorts of great distortion tones, either full gas or nice variations in between. Nice rhythm tones and nice lead tones...

Suhr SE-100 Unbelievable Tone!

I own almost all the amp models and this is one of my favorites. It was what I had been looking for a long time, a Marshall sound but with more gain, right at Doug Aldrich! The Suhr SE-100 has a fantastic tone, big and bad when you want it, but at the same time it has a great dynamic. Thank you UAD / Brainworx / John Suhr for the fantastic job!

The first amp....

...where i don't use any distortion or booster in front of. It delivers the modded Marshall sound i was always looking for and i have most of the UA Marshall's as well. Drive it hot, add some 480L shimmer reverb or delay and a Studio D Chorus and you're in heaven. For me, the best so far and my goto high gain amp. Love it!!

Sounds like rock

I don’t know the amp this is modelledon, but after hearing this, I would be inclined to buy the real thing. It sounds very Rock & Roll.

Yep

I'm starting to become a believer with these UAD amp sims. Both the Suhr amps are no regret purchases. Get me an Orange now!

Best 70s - 80s amp

Let me say first that I am a guitarist and not a engineer. I have most of the UAD amp plugins and they keep getting better. This new Suhr SE100 is the best so far for my tastes. I typically run Bogner Helios and various Marshall amps through 4x12 cab with vintage 30s. There eq curve and response of SE100 is so easy to use. Usually these guitar addons sound far too scoop for my liking. Start at all controls at 12 oclock dialing a sound as a guitarist ( not a engineer ) is much more natural for me with the SE100. With the other guitar addons Its as though the mids and EQ'd completely out. Maybe its the IRS but this amp definitely is a big improvement IMHO
From :
Humble Pie - Bad Company - Bowie & Ronson - Foreigner - AC/DC - Classic ( NWOBHM ) metal - VH - Rhoads - Jake E Lee - Sykes - Aldrich you are definitely covered

This is my new go to
Well done Brainworks/UAD/J.Suhr

Couldn't ask for a better amp.

Awesome plug-in. I love the FX Rack (Vintage Delay and High/Low Filters!). Also, both of the crunchy and clean British tones feel better than ever.
