Based out of a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas, Jackson Ampworks has been creating amazing amplifiers since going full-time in 2010. With a focus on crafting simple amps that sound impeccable, the small team of builders led by Brad Jackson have surpassed their goals of creating all-American-made products that feature signature sounds from both sides of the Atlantic.
Vintage King Nashville will be hosting Brad and his team of tone fanatics on Monday, July 13th from 10 AM to 1 PM. If you're in the Nashville area for NAMM, find out what makes Jackson Ampworks so special, as we'll be demonstrating the entire line of amps.

From The Beatles and The Yardbirds to Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, the English amps created by Laney, Marshall and Vox changed the face of music forever. Jackson has condensed these classic sounds into a small American-made amplifier that features four power settings and two blendable channels for extremely flexible tones.
Jackson Ampworks wanted to create their own original circuit, not based on a clone of any other amplifier on the market. The final result of 18 months of design work, the McFly, offers a tone completely unto its own, while still offering nods to early tweed style amps and Blackface era amps of the 1960s. Complete with power scaling and two distinct preamp modes (50s and 60s), the amplifier features high headroom and impressive clean and aggressive tones.
When creating the Scarlett 30, Jackson Ampworks worked to build an amp specifically catering to guitar players working in the congregation setting. Based on the Top Boost AC30 circuit, players can expect an updated version of the circuit's classic tone that offers everything needed to play faith-based music on a weekly basis.
