Renowned producer Howard Benson, along with his accomplished engineer Mike Plotnikoff, have teamed up with STL Tones to create the ultimate Producer Axe Fx Bundle. Using all of Howard and Mike’s extensive collections of gear, we dove deep into creating an extensive bundle of guitar tones, ranging from signature sounds from some of their biggest releases, to custom tones that are sure to blow your minds!
For over 20 years, Howard Benson has been the go to producer for rock and roll’s biggest names, including Bon Jovi, My Chemical Romance, The All American Rejects, Hoobastank, P.O.D, Three Days Grace, Daughtry, Papa Roach, Halestorm, Simple Plan and countless others. Created from Benson’s custom collection of vintage gear, the STL Howard Benson Bundle: Axe Fx Edition gives users an all-access pass to Benson’s mix-ready guitar tones from some his biggest records. Included in the bundle are 23 presets based off Benson’s most successful releases, and a further 45 presets from his extensive collection of guitar amp/cab combinations.
The producer series, developed by STL Tones, is a series of meticulously crafted Kemper and Axe Fx bundles, combined with state of the art outboard gear, microphones, pedals, and mixing tools, implemented to get you as close to the producer's personal guitar tones as possible.
