At Valve Heaven, we understand that the connection between a musician and their amp is unique - a valve amplifier is not just an amp, it’s a vital extension of your creativity and sound.
We are passionate about valve amp design and committed to providing musicians with a range of handcrafted valve amplifiers - from "The Stack" amplifier, our 1/3W pint sized powerhouse which creates huge rock tones at manageable home levels, to “The Lamington”, our very well received 15W combo amp. We are also available to craft custom amplifiers designed in partnership with you, the guitarist.
We also have a history at Valve Heaven of passing on years of experience in valve technology to the next generation.
amplifier design is available for free download, and has been
successfully built in home workshops across the world.
Support for amp builders is now available
via the Lamington Construction Manual and Amp Kit. We
