Wayne appears on the Let there Be Talk Podcast

Wayne had the honor and privilege to appear on the "Let there be Talk" as part of his Handmade series, hosted by the great Dean Delray last week.  They talk Black Crowes, Stones, guitar, music, life, and of course gear. 

"I had a blast and hope you enjoy this as much as I did!"

New dealer in China

Just finished up the details and happy to announce our first dealer in the Far East. 

Sheng shi fan hua has placed an order for 4 amps including the Lil King, LK-S, and two SC-5 amps.  I am hoping to get these shipped over there the last week of February and I will let you know when those are in the air headed that way. 

New photo galleries

If you take a look around at the bottom of most of the amp models' pages, you will notice a ton of new pics on the site.  I have finally found a little time to update the photos on most amps.  Of course as I sell more Lil King amps than anything else, that model is the main benefactor of the aforementioned updates.  Hope you enjoy and always trying to stay on top of all this around here...21st century technology promoting 20th century amplifiers!

Give Torsten at Guitarloop a ring or email and check out our exclusive dealer for the all of the EU.  He plans on stocking most of the line with a slow build up over the next few months.  Expect to see The Verbrovibe, Sultan and SC5 by late January...I will post some news as soon as the first amps are on the way!

The Sultan is A HIT!

The Sultan page has been updated with new info, pics and specs.  Pricing starts at $2400 for the head.  There will also be a 15 watt model option. 

Check it out here

The Headstrong Sultan...based on 2 of Wayne's personal Brownface 1961 Fender Vibrolux amps.  The same model as the famous Sultans of Swing amp that Mark Knopfler used as his main amp for those sessions.  The rarity of this model has never been debated and, like the Vibroverb, original prices are at all time highs.  Now is a great time to get that sound and vibe at a fraction of the price...From the company who brought you the first hand wired point to point Princeton Reverb AND 1963 Vibrovberb replicas

New Dealer Alert!

So happy to announce that Vintage Gitar in Oslo, Norway will be carrying the line once again.  Arne has grown his brand and store over the last 10 years to become THE place in Scandinavia to get the best of the best in Boutique Gear and I am flattered to be included with that list.  First amps are heading that way as I post this!
