Volt Amp Co are passionate about producing hand wired supreme quality amplifiers for the guitarist with an ear for big tone.

Geoff Pugh has been working with valve amplifiers for over thirty years, servicing, repairing and moding from the late 70s to the present day. 7 years ago the first of the Volt amplifiers were made to satisfy customers that were looking for a vintage sounding amplifier, hand crafted, but available at an affordable price. At that time there were numerous amp builders to choose from in the US but alas, very few here in the U.K. The first models available were the Vintage 45 head and combo, followed by a simple one channel 18 watt combo. 

Beginning about two and a half years ago Geoff began working with local guitarist Rob Rolph to develop an amplifier that would produce a super-sweet singing guitar sound. Specifically, an amplifier carefully voiced to deliver tones reminiscent of the greats Larry Carlton and Robben Ford. During his 14 years in Nearly Dan (Steely Dan Tribute Band), Rob had tried and used many different combinations of boutique branded equipment but had never found the complex subtlety of tone he was looking for. After 18 months of intense testing/adjusting and re-testing they eventually arrived at the Over-drive Super RR or ODV S-RR. 

The process of building the Over-drive Super opened the door-way to produce amplifiers with a spectrum of tone and overdrive Geoff had not experienced before. This provided a platform for the start of a great range of amplifiers that will expand model by model. 

Each amplifier will be meticulously built and tested, then burned in over many hours and re-tested before final setup to ensure a quality, durability and tone fit to last a life time.

Volt Amps are based in Stone, Staffordshire. www.voltamps.co.uk
