BHS 4x12 Powered V - Supercab IR Library

Michael Nielsen introduces the Powered IRs for TH-U Supercabinet! His core cabinets have been captured through 4 of his favorite power amps to deliver classic cabinet tones with the flavor of the legendary guitar racks:

  • H&H* V800 (Solid State)
  • Mesa* 2:Ninety (6L6)
  • VHT* 2150 (KT88)
  • VHT* Classic (EL34)

BHS 4x12 Powered V is the Supercab IR Library which captures the unique 4x12” Steve Vai’s touring cabinet on the Eat Em and Smile, and Skyscraper tours.  This cabinet is well seasoned and is loaded with the Celestion* Vintage 30 speakers. This extensive capture is created with 18 microphones and 16 positions each microphone, and it is repeated for all the 4 power amps, for a total of 1152 IRs.


The H&H* is a solid state power amp that was the goto solid state power amp for even the most heavy weight arena touring rock acts.  It has a warm, amp friendly character that was perfect for amplifying “wet” cabs, or for re-amplifying a head that was turned into a preamp with a load box.

The Mesa* 2:Ninety is a mighty 2U power amp that found incredible popularity in the 90’s. It is simultaneously sweet and aggressive.  Perfect for cleans, soaring leads, or massive crunch.  The captures in the “Powered Green” Subercabinet utilize the “Deep” and “Modern" switches for a massive bottom end boost and powerful punch.  

The VHT* 2150 is the battleship of power amps.  The KT88’s offer endless headroom and a slightly hifi spectrum and a massively powerful and tight bottom end.  These 4U monster power amps were THE goto power amp from top studio musicians to the biggest arena acts.

The VHT* Classic is one of the holy grail power amps.  It’s a 4U beast that has a distinct British flavor.  The Classic has a leaner bass, and more open top end, and an overall more vintage color.  This power amp was a mainstay in the racks of the most elite players.

Made for the supercabinet

The library is created for the TH-U SuperCabinet, which allows to:

  • graphically browse the IRs in the library
  • blend them together
  • craft new cabinet tones with the unique Multiband mode
