Are You Experienced? We Are

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection is a collaborative effort between Authentic Hendrix, LLC. and IK Multimedia. Authentic Hendrix was founded in late '90s, by Al Hendrix and his daughter Janie to curate and promote Jimi’s extensive recorded legacy. Jimi Hendrix was fundamental in the development of modern guitar amplification and guitar effects and heavily influenced the evolution of modern electric guitar sound. In only the four years between 1966, when he started his rehearsal sessions with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and 1970, when he died in London on September 18 at the age of 27, he was “instrumental” in changing the way music was made and electric guitar was played, leaving a permanent mark on the generations of guitarists and musicians that followed. He is constantly named by guitar and music magazines as the number one guitarist of all time.

How Were We Able to Do It?

We’ve been at it for over 16 years… some even say we’re pioneers in the modeling world. And our extensive research and experience has allowed us to work with some of the most influential companies and individuals in the music world today. We are one of the only companies in the industry who have been successful partnering with some of the world’s top manufacturers of gear, bringing their creations into the realm of digital tone creation and recording. It’s a very humbling and honorable experience, and one we wouldn’t trade with anyone.
