Guitar amps should look good.
Has your preferred guitar amp manufacturer been saving money on product design since 1957? There's nothing wrong with how vintage amps work, which is why we're starting out with hand wired, all tube guitar amplifiers based on classic schematics. But it's time to update that look a little. Why should guitars get all the aesthetic glory?
Modern Amplification builds guitar amps that are small enough to carry onto the bus, big enough to play a show, looks good enough to keep in your living room.
Listen to Modern Amp.
Jamie is playing a fairly rare Les Paul Recording. On the guitar, the volume and tone all the way up, the bridge pick up is selected - a stacked humbucker. He's plugged into the high input, the amp is turned all the way up, and the tone stack is bypassed. Without any tone pots in the signal, you get a lot of extra gain. This is an open back cabinet with a single 12 inch Weber Blue Dog speaker. It's recorded on a little Sony PCM-D50 recorder, from about 1 metre away. There are no effects, no studio or post production EQing. It's a raw recording. Hard to believe it's a 5 watt amp!
