MVAmps Modern Valve Amplifiers All Tube All the Time
See MVAmp Models Below
MV Amps is the result of years of experience spent as a musician, a recording engineer and an amp designer in the quest of the "Perfect Tone". Over the years it has become obvious to everyone that tube amps sound better than transistors.
The term Vintage has come to mean an old amp that was point to point hand wired, had beefy transformers and quality components. However, in terms of manufacturing and design, progress has come to mean building an amp that can produce a tone at the lowest cost basis per unit. In other words, Cheap.
At MVAmps we take you back to the future. Our amp designs are "All Tube All the Time". They are meticulously point to point hand wired. We use Mercury Magnetic transformers, arguably the best made today. And we use high quality components to bring your tone alive.
In addition, we have added some modern features, like the ability to shape the pre amp response, switch able tone stacks to flavor your sound and selectable mid boost to enhance the best frequency to make your tone cut through the track or stand out in a live performance. Do MVAmps cost a little more than those progressive modeling designs marketed through the guitar store outlets? Yes, but not as much as you might expect.
Do they sound better? Well, browse through some of the sound samples and judge for yourself. We think they do.
The MVAmps Customer commitment We want you to be completely satisfied with your new MVAmp. We will work with you to fine tune your amp to achieve your desired tone. If after 30 days you are not completely satisfied, we ask that you return the amp to us for a refund. We would rather have a satisfied non customer than a dissatisfied customer.
All MVAmps use Mercury Magnetic Transformers
