We spotted the Westminster Effects Augsburg at our Summer NAMM 2021 booth and it’s now shipping. Built on the same concept as the company’s recent Geneva Amp Sim, the Augsburg is a version of that pedal with a different character, since it recreates the sound of a Fender Silverface and Blackface amps – rather than a Vox AC-30.
It features a 3 band EQ with extra Bright toggle, XLR output and switchable cab simulation, but no footswitch, since it’s indended to be an always-on kind of pedal.
Like other pedals by this builder, its name refers to a European city that was prominent during the Protestant reformation.
It’s scheduled to ship in August.
This is our tone and that of our guitars. The Augsburg Deluxe Amp Sim is an all analog emulation of Fender Silverface and Blackface amps. It features a switchable cabinet simulator and XLR out, which makes it perfect as an analog option for running direct and an inexpensive option for running stereo. It also features a 1/4? output dry through, so you can bypass the Augsburg at home, or run the XLR to the PA while you run the 1/4? output to an amp.
