Flying Haggis is an all-original amp design with great tones, a nice selection of vintage fx, and a no nonsense interface with all the pick-up-and-play appeal of real hardware, with no complex menus or screens to navigate.

With a realistic vintage tone stack, multi-stage preamp, 6 speaker cabinets and 4 mic positions, you can quickly dial in a massive range of amp tones. The vintage style stompboxes (drawn from db audioware’s extensive fx library) and stereo reverb complete your sound.

Guitarist Choice

Guitarist magazine awarded Flying Haggis (PC/Mac version) a Guitarist Choice award, with a rating of 4.5/5.

The guitar sounds in the demos opposite were recorded using only Flying Haggis with no further processing applied. You will hear unprocessed guitar, then Flying Haggis solo, and finally the full mix.
