This updated Valvulator offers IR loading for even more tube-powered versatility.

The multi-award winning Valvulator GP/DI IR is a direct recording solution featuring an ultra-flexible, all-tube 1-Watt guitar amplifier specifically designed to deliver genuine dynamic tube amp sound and feel through a speaker cab, headphones, direct to mixing console and direct to FOH/Monitor board for live performance applications.

Load Your Own Cab, or Use Fryette's
New for 2020, Valvulator GP/DI IR gets an all-new digital cab IR loader complete with memory space for 16 cabs, including Fryette's most popular cabs. You can also load your favorite cabs via the USB loader using the included PC and Mac enabled user interface.

The Valvulator GP/DI IR is the only solution that provides two integrated cabinet sim options, Analog (for zero latency and expansive dynamic range) and Digital IR (for realistic room reflections and convolutions). You can use both individually or simultaneously. You can also defeat the cab sim and use an external IR.

Sixteen factory installed cabinet impulse responses come pre-loaded in the Valvulator GP/DI – IR. These can be modified using the included GUI, or you can install your favorite cab files via the USB connector on the rear panel.

Professional-Quality Headphone Amplifier
A professional-quality stereo headphone amplifier with a stereo effects loop allows you to insert delays and reverb into the headphone mix, plus a Program Input that accepts a stereo music source such as a CD or MP3 player or group practice mixer for an unprecedented level of performance.

Proven Design
The Valvulator GP/DI - IR is used by high-profile artists and producers, such Paul Jackson Jr, Train, Gustavo Santatoalla, Sumac, Helmet, and David Torn. Pedals companies such as Voodoo Lab, Earthquaker Devices, Solid Gold FX, Spiral Electric FX and Maxon/TWA/Godlyke use it for their demo boards.
