Archetype: Nolly

The purest distillation of Nolly’s custom-modded guitar amp collection, captured with 100% accuracy


Producer. Player. Polymath

Adam “Nolly” Getgood stands out as one of the most accomplished and respected figures in modern metal. Whether it’s multi-instrumental stints in Periphery, engineering some of the most breathtaking audio productions, or even capturing the perfect drum tone, everything Nolly does is executed with absolute precision and a seemingly obsessive commitment to excellence.

There are very few things Nolly hasn’t experimented with in his quest for the perfect guitar tone, even teaching himself electronics to re-engineer his favorite amplifiers, modifying them to his exact requirements. When we learned of this, we knew we had to collaborate to bring his vision to the world. After countless iterations, thousands of impulse-response files auditioned, we have finally distilled Adam’s sonic vision for the perfect guitar sound into a single plugin. We proudly present you, Archetype: Nolly.

Pre Effects

This section features a rich collection of effects placed before the amplifier section. Two different overdrives/booster pedals, in addition to a solid-state compressor, and even a delay provide enough flexibility and potential for fine tone sculpting and experimenting.


Four state-of-the-art tube amplifier models of Nolly’s own modified amplifiers are at the core of this plugin. Perfectly captured for an uncannily natural feel, covering the vast tonal range the modern guitarist or producer requires in its entirety. The result is a crystal-clear Clean, a beautifully rich Crunch, a massive sounding Rhythm and a powerful and defined Lead. The crown jewels of Nolly’s collection of guitar amplifiers are now at your disposal.


Crystal clear, full, and defined tones. This head is the perfect canvas for dreamy chords and nuanced, dynamic playing.


Classic British crunch with a twist. This head will provide a clear, defined attack with rich harmonics.


Full and massive sounding. This head will provide enough dynamic range for rhythms and full on leads.


This head provides an entirely different high-gain flavor. Equally useful for heavy rhythms and leads.


Ideal for detailed spectrum adjustment, the onboard 9-band graphic equalizer allows for total control over frequency response.

Time Effects

Multi-dimensional reverb and a dreamy delay pedal provide all the elements required for lush ambient sounds and adding the perfect amount of depth for leads.


Boasting 640 impulse response elements painstakingly captured by Nolly using his favorite four microphones; the virtual speaker section is this plugin’s secret weapon.


This unique control allows you to use each head with its matched cabinet, or experiment by interchanging them.

The four amplifiers, combined with the 640 IRs, provide a virtually endless amount of combinations.
