Manufacturer's Description from Henriksen

4 years ago we tried plugging some tube preamps into the analog JazzAmp power board, and we immediately saw the potential for something that has long been missing from the guitar amplifier marketplace; a great tube sound with enough clean head room and bottom end to play jazz without needing to find a volume “sweet spot”. The results are far beyond our expectations!

Henriksen Amplifiers has built our reputation on designing and manufacturing high quality, high fidelity amplifiers for jazz and acoustic guitars using a premium solid-state architecture. We have become the industry standard for straight ahead jazz guitar amplification when it comes to that plug-n-play, high headroom solid-state sound, but there’s always been something missing for customers who like a tube amp sound with a little break up or a more modern distortion-based guitar tone.

Until now! The Forte combines our JazzAmp with a full plate voltage 12AX7 based tube preamp, and has all the tube feel and warmth, combined with the rich tone Henriksen is known for, but without the weight and maintenance of a full tube amp. At only 28 pounds, The Forte has the clean headroom capable of delivering Fender Twin levels of volume, but is linear in design so you can get that same sweet sound at lower volumes as well.

In addition to great tone, like all Henriksen products this amp was engineered to be a true road warrior and designed with the gigging professional in mind. Whether you’re looking for a plug-n-play, high headroom amp for big clean sounds, or a low maintenance pedal platform that has some great analog feel to it, The Forte is exceptionally portable with the tonal versatility and volume to cover any gig and be just fine living in the trunk of your car.

About Manufacturer

Henriksen, Inc. began life as a telecom hardware manufacturer and software development company. In 2005, our founder Bud Henriksen began working on the JazzAmp to fill what he saw as a void in the marketplace for a guitar amplifier designed to meet the needs of jazz guitar players who wanted extremelyhigh quality sound in a portable package. Keys to our success have been manufacturing in our own facility to keep quality control as high as possible, using all analog designs to preservetonalintegrity, and 100% commitment to the absolute best customer service in the industry.

In 2013 we began to branch out beyond the realm of jazz guitar and have introduced The Bud for acoustic players and singer-songwriters, and we will be releasing more products from our pipeline in 2016.
