About Me

Thanks for your interest in a Modern Sound amp!


My main focus is the British Lord JTM45 replicas. I consider the JTM45 to be the greatest amplifier ever made and I build these amps because it is my passion. I have a day job that pays the bills so amp work is done nights and weekends. I love working alone and the focus, patience and concentration required to build an amp is a great distraction from the noise of modern life.

- Amp approval period is 72 hours...you must contact me to return your amp for a refund and return it within 7 business day, but custom items such as head unique cabinet choices and panels with custom serial numbers or lettering are non-refundable. 

- Amps are guaranteed for life against build defects, Mercury Magnetics transformers are guaranteed for 10 years. 

- NOS and vintage parts can be used in your build, but they are only guaranteed for 90 days. I will replace any part with it's equivelent, but understand that using vintage components is a risk...they can fail. I haven't had an issue yet but be aware that these are 30 - 50 year old parts and sh*t happens!

- There is no warranty against user error, meaning you need protect your output transformer!  Always check impedence before putting a signal through the amp!
