Design Retro Works have designed and tested our first production amplifier
The amp is closely based around the high end studio amps hand
made in Britain in the 50s, 60s and early 70s that Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Dave Davis, Jimmy Page, Peter Green, John Entwistle,
Dave Gilmore etc. used to have before mass production took over.
These amplifiers were totally clean valve amplifiers and the
originals are now
very sought after by studios worldwide.
Named AVIA (all-valve instrument amplifier), these are now
available to order, they currently have a lead time of 4 weeks
from order placement, please check out the demo video below. As the title
suggests, the AVIA all-valve instrument amplifier can be used
to amplify most kinds of stringed instrument or keyboards, results
are obviously dependant on the use of suitable speakers.
