Matamp announce 2013 amp
line-up with new website
Britain's oldest surviving amp manufacturer of any note is set
to reveal the 2013 line-up of guitar amplifiers and cabinets by way
of a completely redesigned website.
Matamp, whose amplifiers have always been hand built in Britain,
are known for their rich, versatile tones achieved by carefully
thought out circuitry rather than flogging the guts out of the
components. The range has been designed to cater for the musician
that needs consistency in their tone from the rehearsal room,
through the studio and the smaller gig, all the way through to the
Because of Matamp's policy of total hand-build, comparatively
few are made per year than are by their factory built competitors,
so there only a very few dealers stocking them in the UK; the means
by which most customers buy the equipment is simply to drive
directly to the workshop in the knowledge that they are not paying
dealer or distributor margins for the privilege of playing through
most other brands.
The upside of buying directly from Matamp is that the customers
are in a position to try as many amps as they need to in order to
find the one is best suited to their needs, and then to plug in to
the 'speaker wall' - simply a bank of 12 identical enclosures, each
loaded with different drivers - in order to nail the sound that
they're looking for. The downside is a bit of a waiting list,
unless the customer selects an amp/cab combination suited to them
that is in stock.
