Vintage amps in good condition are pricey and scarce. Texas Tone™ Amps are new, original designs, inspired by the great iconic amps of the past. They're original because we drew up the schematic and layout diagrams, carefully laid every wire, and have dedicated the last seven years to learning about the natural relationship between vacuum tubes and tonal response.
Anyone who would ask why we have invested so much in mid-20th century technology has never played one of our guitar amplifiers.
Texas Tone™ Amps are built with a discerning musician's care. Every component, every wire lead, every solder joint, is carefully selected, laid out, bent, and soldered to ensure long life, optimal tone, and low noise. To further reduce amp hum, we follow modern electrical engineering practice and use a modified single point grounding scheme.
