AmpKit Link HD Industrial Design

Jan 27, 2012

Here are a few renders of the recently announced AmpKit LiNK HD. Designing the HD was, as usual, a series of complicated tradeoffs made in the hope of finding the right balance. Core requirements of the HD are: pocketability, durability, physical gain controls, detachable cable, power adapter port and support for a belt / strap clip. The surface is a rubberized coating, which feels great in the hand.

I iterated a number of different form factors, but ultimately we settled on a design comparable to the original LiNK due to its flexibility. The folks at Peavey were, as usual, great to work with.

These shots were modeled in modo and rendered in Cinema 4D using V-Ray. AmpKit Link HD image AmpKit Link HD image AmpKit Link HD image
