Port City Amplification - OUR VALUES Port City Amplification is based out of Asheville, NC, where we design and build all of our products to a strict quality standard, while striving to keep them affordable for working musicians. We approach what we do as an art - not in a lofty, unapproachable fashion - but because we find beauty in the simplicity and depth of what we create.

We are very proud to operate this business from the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. We are located about 10 minutes outside of downtown Asheville and couldn't be happier with this home base for Port City Amplification.  (view less)
