Manufacturer's Description from Little Walter

Little Walter Tube Amps share a common design and construction model:

  • No Circuit, Tag, or Turret boards – hand built point to point wiring architecture
  • Octal tubes (preamp, power, and rectifier) – Enhanced dynamic responsiveness
  • Shortest signal path to achieve best possible tone – Hear actual voice of your instrument
  • High Quality Signal caps – Full range of tonal color
  • Line Out on all chassis – Direct connection to recording board or PA system

Our amps are carefully hand crafted in West End, North Carolina in the United States by Phil Bradbury.

It is our intention to recreate the amps of the past using top quality components and point to point construction techniques to give you an amp that has the absolute best tone possible.

Why the name "Little Walter"?

As a graduate of the EKU Broadcasting Department I was on-air in 1976 doing an interview in reference to the business I was in. A friend saw the piece on TV and started calling me "Little Walter" as a reference to the famous commentator "Walter Cronkite". The name stuck and since that day I have been called "Little Walter" by my closest friends. Now you know the rest of the story.

Why do you build my amps the way you do?

Because no one makes 'a clean pedal!'

Can you tell me more about how you build your tube amps?

A point to point built amp is one that uses no circuit boards, or tag boards. A non-point to point amp is one where all the resistors and capacitors are mounted in a uniform manner on a board and the tubes, inputs, volume and tone controls (pots) are connected to these components on the board. This type of construction allows easy replacement of capacitors and resistors but in my opinion looses some of the Tone Mojo of a point to point amp (NOTE: a printed circuit board basically acts as another capacitor). Just like the name implies, a point to point built amp has the tubes, inputs, volume, and tone pots connected directly together with the resistors and capacitors.

There is true magic in the wiring of a point to point amp chassis. I have always thought that each amp has it's own "Tone Soul". Believe me there are many variables that control the sound of an amp. I believe each amp can sound a bit different as these are hand built one component at a time and the length of each wire, proximity to other components, etc. can all change the tone slightly as well as the values of resistors and capacitors. Each hand-built, point to point amp is as individual as the person playing it.

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.

Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Elegant - Quick n' Dirty

The Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Elegant is a great playing and sounding classic style LP guitar. Its tone is fat and round in the neck position, giving the options of woman-tone warmth or punchy humbucking style with the twist of a tone knob. The treble pickup is hot and handles gain like any good LP bridge pickup should. Like what you hear, check out this gear at SoundPure.com, or shoot us an email at Electrics@SoundPure.com.
