Little Walter 50 Watt Tweed Amplifier Head  From Little Walter

The clean tone that made Little Walter famous!

Little Walter Tube Amps

What We Think

Want to hear what your guitar really sounds like? If you've never played through a Little Walter 50 watt head you may not actually know! This amp produces sounds as unique and nuanced as the finest boutique instruments--but this thing is no museum piece. It belongs on a stage! Honestly this is some of the most natural sounding clean tone you will ever hear in an amplifier, and the breakup is absolutely phenomenal. There is plenty of headroom for louder performances, but even at the lowest volume possible you have sparkly, warm tone and a suprisingly responsive feel. I've never played anything quite like it. To top it all off, these amps are handwired point-to-point by Little Walter owner Phil Bradbury to be clean and reliable--a fact that is well-known by endorsees like Vince Gill, Brent Mason, Reggie Young, and Travis Toy who test their roadworthiness on a regular basis. Join the ranks of some of the world's best  and find out what Little Walter is all about!

About Manufacturer

All the Little Walter Tube Amps use Octal Pre-amp tubes and are hand wired with no circuit, tag, or turret boards.  I believe the shortest signal path equates to the purest possible tone. These amps are all cathode biased and voiced to allow more low frequency tone to pass through the pre-amp. All my amps also have a direct line out that can be connected to your house PA or recording console.  These amps can be ordered with Tweed, Lacquered Tweed, Tolex, or Cherry, Maple, or Walnut hardwood (hardwood based on availability of wood).  I personally build these amps one at a time right here in North Carolina.

Anderson Short T Black Electric Guitar Demo

Some exciting stuff coming from the team over at Anderson Guitarworks, one of which being the new arm of their T-family, the Short-T! Given its' name for the shorter (24 3/4 inch) scale length, these guitars employ the same sharpness in design presented with previous Anderson "T"-Guitars, so despite it's smaller scale length, you still get the same "T" quality but with some interesting new capabilities. Some of the benefits in the shorter scale are a more mid-focused tone range that still has all the best parts of T-model that you have come to love, as well as a bit more ability to manipulate overdrive should you desire it, with some really nice saturation. Some more obvious advantages of this guitar, is its' incredible lighter form and feel, the ability to move around and reach frets easier, as well as some less obvious components such as opportunities to increase the string gauge should you choose to do so, which will do wonders for your tone. With some super warm TF series pickups, the Short T from Anderson has some extraordinarily full, and clear tones, but still has the ability to really pack a punch with the right amp.
