The NEWT auto automatically adjusts its power requirement from 110v through to 240v so you can plug and play no matter what country the next gig/session is in and the NEWT will take care of it.

Designed for guitarists using pedals, modelers and effects processors to create their tone but can also be used totally alone with the 3 band EQ plus scoop preset allowing easy tone sculpting.

The balanced XLR DI out also allows you to run straight into the PA delivering your tone directly to the sound desk. Lastly the headphone out allows silent practice between gigs.

Simply bring your guitar and your pedalboard to the next gig for an ultra portable set up!
