The M-80 Ordnance Metal Mid Boost is based on the VFE Standout, but with a fixed frequency response tuned specifically for modern metal. Designed in collaboration with Peter Rutter (ex-VFE designer/owner and now with v(e) design) as the perfect boost to tighten up high gain guitars so they cut in the mix. This pedal also represents the first non-v(e) commercial pedal implementation of s Peter's new SPS system for power management and I/O. Whether you play standard tuned six strings, detuned, 7 or 8 strings, this boost will provide the cut and tightness you need.
We are happy to announce that the design is complete and the new Bottle Rocket Pedal Preamp Pedal is now in production and testing. We've already got one finished and in our test pedalboard and we've made some quick clips (they are on the Audio and product pages) so you can hear it. It is sounding really great in the room, but better quality recordings will be coming shortly. We'll have them available in our Reverb Store soon! We're really excited about this pedal! More pedal announcements coming soon...
The Bottle Rocket Preamp Pedal is a two channel preamp pedal that delivers tube-like tone because of its unique design. The Clean channel produces gorgeous cleans and the Bottle Rocket high gain channel is basically identical to our 50 watt Bottle Rocket amplifier's preamp in both controls and gain stage design. The difference is that the pedal uses a high voltage (325V B+) LND150 MOSFET-based design to deliver its tones. It actually sounds amazingly close to the tube preamp section of the actual Bottle Rocket amplifier.
Henning Amplification products are now available through our Reverb store. The Bottle Rocket and Cherry Bomb are available as a pre-order and the details on delivery are in the Reverb listings. Our 4x12 cabs are still custom order through a third party and so you must contact us directly to order them and they are not available in the store. We've got some exciting new products coming that will be available in the store as well, so stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram pages!

We're working on a new Henning Amps project. This will be a 2 channel pedal preamp that can be used in front of an amp, in the loop return or into a pedal power amp like the PowerStage 170. Clean channel and full Bottle Rocket channel. This pedal preamp will be LND150-based, so no tubes to replace. Great for a fly rig board! 3-D mechanical design of the two channel Bottle Rocket pedal preamp continues! We’re now in board design phase and should be prototyping fairly soon. Pretty exciting times at Henning Amps!

We just added two new Bottle Rocket video clips done by our friend and incredible guitarist, Al Estrada. Al was kind enough to put together these video clips for us and they not only showcase his amazing skills, but also the versatility of the Bottle Rocket. Both clips are available on the Video Page as well as the Bottle Rocket Product Page.
It's tough to pull off a high gain amp that sounds great, feels great, and still retains outstanding dynamic response. From full blown aggression, to cleaning up with the volume knob, the Bottle Rocket delivers. By far my favorite amp of the 2016 LA Amp Show.
The Bottle Rocket is one of the best amps I've played. Perfect combination of killer tone, great features and size. It's an extremely versatile, especially for a single channel amp and will give you anything from clean to crunch to an incredible lead tone with just your guitar's volume knob and playing dynamics.
