hovercraft amps' Profile

About

each hovercraft amp is uniquely tailored with components and cosmetics to make them very special to the owner. nobody has another one like it!

every hovercraft amp sounds and looks a little bit different! thats why we put videos and sound clips up of each one we make. we don't want to just crank out mass produced stuff thats the same, same, same.. BORING!

hovercraft amps are made from carefully selected unused, unloved music gear that has great potential. we then tear down and rebuild these pieces from the ground up into ICONS OF TONE. plexis, metal panels, rectos, 'mat mathias', 'brown sound', sunn, etc type guitar sounds are the goals when we remake tube amps and cabinets.

design faults are corrected, bad circuits removed or improved, hardware upgraded, power increased, signal paths uncluttered, mods and tone tricks applied until you distill down to the building blocks of great amps and cabinets.

GREAT, INSPIRING SOUND. thats what we are about.

made with the philosophy that there is plenty of great gear around, it just needs some old fashioned hot rodding, and sometimes major remodeling!

everything we work with has passed the test of time, and is ready to go make decades of great music.

'reuse, recycle, rerock' is a trademark of hovercraft amps. if you have questions about our stuff, please ASK!

that wasnt chicken.
