New Kontakt sample library: Indie Guitar!

This Fender Jazzmaster is without a doubt my favorite electric guitar. And this Music Man Sixty-Five tube amp is my favorite guitar amp. For the past ten years, I’ve used this combination on countless rock songs, film cues, and instrumental pieces. And now – finally – this versatile combo has been sampled and turned into a Kontakt instrument. Requires the full version of Kontakt 5.3.1 or later.

  • ADSR controls on all patches (except spiccato)
  • EQ controls on all patches
  • Recorded with three different mics (including a piezo contact mic). Mic levels are controllable after the fact to give maximum sonic flexibility
  • Three experimental patches: Texture I, Open Strings, Open Strings (Ensemble)
