Dave’s Corner: Boutique Amp Guide Part II

Feel free, even so, to suggest boutique amp makers that you’d like to see covered in the comments below. Rather than copying or updating the classics, like so many boutique makers do, Steve Carr of North Carolina’s Carr Amplifiers has long been dedicated to devising inspiringly original circuits and amp designs to achieve great tone and superb functionality for today’s guitarist. The quest to achieve authentic tweed tone in a new amp available to today’s players led Mark Baier to found Victoria Amp Company just outside Chicago in 1994. The Victoria stable runs the gamut of “Narrow-panel” tweed amp models, from the Champ-esque 518 to the high-powered Twin-style 80212, while also doing a great rendition of the fabled late-’50s Gibson GA-40 Les Paul amp in its Electro King combo. Dave Hunter is a writer and musician who has worked extensively in the USA and the UK. The author of The Guitar Amp Handbook, Guitar Effects Pedals, Guitar Amps & Effects For Dummies, The Gibson Les Paul and several other books, Dave is also a regular contributor to Guitar Player and Vintage Guitar magazines.

Quilter Amps

Modern tubes aren’t as good as they used to be, and tube amps are inherently finicky, costly, and heavy. A good hand-wired boutique amp, built like they used to be, costs thousands of dollars, and “Semi affordable” tube amps involve drastic reductions in power, tone, versatility, and reliability. Conventional solid state runs somewhat cooler and eliminates some of the large transformers that make tube amps so heavy. Musicians noticed a much colder, harsher tone quality and continued to favor tube amps. Pat Quilter, founder of QSC Audio Products and a veteran designer with over 45 years of experience, is one of the few designers whose career spans tubes, solid state, and the new switchmode technology.

Roundup: Nine 1×12 Combo Amps

Whether it’s a 5-watt practice rig or a 50- or 100-watter for stage use, a workhorse combo always seems to be the go-to choice for the situation. Combos come in so many varieties now, from single-channel retro types to multi-channel fire-breathers with closed-back cabinets to digital modeling combos that pack dozens of amps and effects for those who want it all in one convenient package. We tested these amps with a variety of humbucker and single- coil guitars from Gibson, Fender, PRS, Fernandes, Fano, and others, and evaluated them all for tone, flexibility, and quality of construction. THE DREAM WEAVER CONJOINS FOUR AMPS INTO A KIND OF SUPER GROUP combo that aims at replicating many of the guitar sounds you’ve heard on classic rock records. The Dream Weaver combo is pricey, but when you consider that you’re getting the equivalent of four hand-wired amps in one package it starts to sound like a bargain.×12-combo-amps/…

1965 Marshall Model 1973 “18 Watter” 2×12 Combo($8,000 to $10,000)This small Marshall makes a big, crunchy sound, and has earned a major cult following in the process. 1966-’69 Marshall Super Lead($7,000 to $8,900 custom color)Several models have contributed to the Marshall mystique, but the Super Lead was undeniably the big boy of them all – the amp that took genuine rock stars onto the big stage. 1965-’66 Kitchen-Marshall JTM45With an alternative look and badge, these creations by Marshall for the Kitchen Music chain in North London often included minor circuit twists, and were among earlier Marshalls to use EL34 output tubes. 1987-’89 Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 Full Stack($4,000 to $5,300)To celebrate its 25th anniversary in 1987, Marshall blended several elements of its vintage and contemporary amp designs and covered it all in silver, to make what many consider a modern classic. 1965-’66 Marshall JTM50 Model 1963 PA Head($3,800 to $4,600)Can’t get your hands on a 50-watt Lead amp? Turns out the Marshall PA head did much the same trick, for a little less cash – as many players quickly discovered.

Boutique Guitar Amplifiers & Audio Equipment

Oxygen is located in Vancouver, BC, Canada and builds amplifiers for those that are truly serious about tone. Our circuit is completely transparent! By adjusting the volume and gain accordingly you are able to achieve the same tone and gain characteristics at power levels around 1 Watt which is ideal for even the smallest venues. Our builders in conjunction with Kevin O’Connor, the originator of power scaling, have developed the latest iteration of this proven system to reduce power output. Since the Oxygen power scaling reduces power by reducing voltage to the output stage, the result is clean tone without sacrificing tube life. Attenuators, on the other hand, reduce power output by creating an artificial load after the output stage.

What Is A Boutique Guitar Amp?

Perform a Google search on the term “What is a boutique amp” and you will find many threads from many gear related forums where members debate the meaning of the term and the criteria by which a boutique amp is defined. Virtually every participant in the online boutique debate agrees that to be considered a boutique amp company small or limited production capacity is a requirement. There are many amp companies that are generally considered to be boutique, such as Soldano, Rivera, Fuchs and THD to name a few that use PCBs. Note that while these amps use PCBs, they are hand assembled and, in at least the case of the Gem, the components are mounted to the PCB by hand and hand soldered. Most if not all participants in the boutique debate seem to agree that to be considered a boutique amp builder, production must take place locally – not in Asia or other areas of the world where labor rates are low. It’s interesting to note that in all of the online forum threads that I studied, VERY few participants mentioned tone as a defining factor of a boutique amp! A few commented that not all boutique amps sound good to them.

Dave’s Corner: Boutique Amp Guide Part I

I frequently receive messages from guitarists who are in the market for something new in a boutique amp, but are baffled by the broad selection available today. Richard Goodsell of Atlanta, GA, was working on Hammond organs and Leslie cabinets for several years before deciding to convert a spare Hammond tube chassis into a small guitar amp. The result would become the Super 17, Goodsell’s flagship, a dual-EL84 amp producing 17 watts which is now in its fourth iteration as the Mark IV. Goodsell amps are all hand-wired using quality components, and tend toward the more compact end of the scale, too, which has made them a popular club amp with many city dwellers in particular. The pair sold an amp to Carlos Santana while the company was still in its infancy, and quickly gathered a string of major players on its artists roster, developing a reputation as one of the premier makers at the upper echelon of the boutique market in the process. Dave Hunter is a writer and musician who has worked extensively in the USA and the UK. The author of The Guitar Amp Handbook, Guitar Effects Pedals, Guitar Amps & Effects For Dummies, The Gibson Les Paul and several other books, Dave is also a regular contributor to Guitar Player and Vintage Guitar magazines.
