Just Nick: Keeley Oxblood Overdrive/Boost

An awesome, highly versatile and supremely toneful design. The Oxblood is not an emulation of any one amp but rather channels the spirit and ethos of rock and roll, but it’s excellently voiced feature set makes it suitable for almost any genre and gain level. Just watch the vid and then try one, K? Yes!
