We are located 30 miles outside of Boston, MA but we ship worldwide. We have been active in the guitar gear industry for many years, starting out as a repair shop that quickly morphed into a cabinet shop, and we now design and build some of the finest guitar amplifiers in the world. Most of what we build is "to order", but we sometimes have amps and cabinets in stock. Our amplifiers have been engineered for maximum durability and maximum tone. We have our own in-house cabinet shop that allows us to help out customers have their dream amp setup. Please let us know what you are looking for, we look forward to hearing from you.

We have passion to build the finest, most reliable, musical gear in the industry, and showing our customers how important they are.


Amplified Nation amplifiers are hand built at our shop in Massachusetts. We work with customers to uncover how the sound they are looking, and we can tune and customize the amps in our lineup to suit your needs. Our amplifiers are built to last, and with our in-house custom cabinet shop, we make them look as incredible as they sound. Our amps range in power from 22w to 150w.

Our customers say it best:
  • Most all of my Dumble and Two Rock amps had suede covered enclosures from their original dates of manufacture. It's definitely superior to tolex covering. I know this from playing the same old Dumbles since the late 70's, for over 30 years of hard treatment on the road, and at home. Played hard and put to bed wet; suede is the best amp covering that I know. I had Taylor recover the enclosures of 3 of my amps, which were previously covered with tolex, with three different colors of suede. He did a magnificent and impeccable job of doing this work for me. He gets an AAA+++ in my rating system. This kind of recovering is not a simple or easy task; you can put your trust in Taylor. –Henry Kaiser

  • I’ve known Taylor at Amplified Nation for a few years now. He and his lovely wife are the nicest people to do business with, and he’s become a valuable resource to Fuchs Audio for custom projects, tolex recovering, restorations and prototypes. I highly recommend him, but only if you like prompt service, reasonable prices, and quality work…. –Andy Fuchs, Fuchs Audio Technology

  • Amplified Nation is my ‘go to’ for any cabinet recovering / cabinet repairing work as well as for one-off exotic material custom covered cabinets we may need. Taylor’s quality of work is second to none and he’s a really nice guy to deal with –Alan Phillips, Carol-Ann Custom Amplifiers, LLC

  • I've been working with Taylor since shortly after he started. He is always up for a new challenge and has never told me "NO". I've been very satisfied with everything we've done together. His work is precise and always on time, always. I recommend Taylor highly!! –Mark Kane
