Amplified Nation was founded in 2009, offering vintage amplifier repair and restoration services out of a small one room shop in Boston, MA. Through our quest for great guitar tone, we soon began to build and manufacture our own boutique guitar amplifiers, speaker cabinets, and effects pedals. Our passion for electric guitar and legendary amplifiers led us to discover Dumble amplifiers. We quickly excelled at recreating some of the custom designs that are sought after by many.
All amps and pedals are handwired in our shop in Stow MA. We have built hundreds of cabinets and countless amplifiers, and we partner with some of the best musicians and in the world. People choose to work with Amplified Nation because all of our products are customized. We work with every single customer to create the tone and look they are imagining in their head. We have passion to build the finest musical gear in the industry, and treating our customers like gold.
Please contact us to speak about custom builds or any of our products. We've done more work than we could showcase on one website, so if there is something you want to see, feel free to email us and we can send you pictures. We will build that dream rig you have in your head!
Amplified Nation amplifiers are hand built one at a time, at our shop in Massachusetts. We work with our customers to discover the sound they are looking for, and while we work to find how that sound fits with our lineup, we tune and customize the amps in our lineup to suit their 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 Big Bloom Overdrive is shipped worldwide to players craving a great boutique overdriven sound in a small package. With enclosure choices ranging from suede, to hammered painted finishes, tolex, and marine vinyl, we can catch the eye of almost any player. Our effects are 100% made by hand in our shop.
Amplified Nation cabinets is where we began our quest in building top end guitar gear. We work without a CNC machine, creating each headshell, speaker cab, or combo by hand. We are the Custom Shop cabinet provider to many of today’s top amp builders.
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
