Sweet amplifiers are made one at a time by hand in Tucson AZ based on tried and true “all tube” circuit designs with the best components available. Standard models and custom designs with many cabinet options and coverings are available. Power ratings from 5W to 120W and speaker configurations such as 1×8, 1×10, 2×10, 3×10, 1×12, 2×12, 1×15 or a combination of your choice.

Sweet amplifiers are totally old school but even more functional. All features and controls will be familiar but “dialed in” for a more useable range of tone control. My love of vintage tone is combined with a practical approach to amp building which results in total functionality. This means that every feature will be useful and no control knob should need to be turned all the way up or all the way down to get a good tone.

You will find that Sweet amplifiers give more bang for your buck and will often out perform amps that have higher power ratings. This means that you may be able to gig with (and carry) a smaller and better sounding amp than you are currently using.

Sweet amplifiers can be tweaked to fit your style or instrument. Most models can be fine tuned for your preference. If you are in the Tucson area, you can be there to listen to and make personalized changes at the final stages of the build.  Tubes, speakers, and minor circuit changes can be personally selected. We really want this to be “your” Sweet amp!
