    I know this looks insane, but lately I’ve been looking for certain amps, based on what circuitry they were designed and based on what tubes it uses. We are only aware about amps that are most used or more popular. Reading all these websites and by making this list I found that there are far too many choices to consider before committing to an amp based on its design. I mainly did this for me (Can’t lie) but I hope it helps others when they get to the amp hunt, thus giving more choices that are not just the standard popular amp (not that there’s something wrong with that).
    Hope this helps…….

    List Completed!!!!! Thanks so much to Maven Peal Amplifiers, Scumbag Amplifiers, Cauble Amplifiers and Cornell Amplifiers for their input. If any builders feel that the information above mentioned is not accurate please contact me and I will make the necessary changes. Builders that were not mentioned there is no biased just that either we are not aware of your product or I looked under your website and there were no specifications about your product. So far I have 9 builders that I will have to contact and ask them for specs.

    As for the “True” Class A vs. “Market” Class A, John you were correct sir; there are amps that are true class A, and others that are just marketed as class A. What I am going to do is write the word MARKET right next to the amp that is marketed as a Class A. The ones that do not have Market next to it are considered as a True Class A. (Please let me know which ones need to be distinguished from the true Class A)

    Thanks to all for your support and kind words. Thanks to Deaj for helping me with my original thread about the list of amp builders, he made a great list. Hope this list becomes a useful tool for amp hunting, as well as to create conscience of all the unheard or not so popular companies building great high quality guitar amps.

    P.S This List may help with the amp search but it definitely will not ease the GAS……

    All I have to say is that very few of the amps listed under "Class A" actually operate in Class A.

    Actually that's not all: "Nice list". :)

    You sir are correct....There are only few True Class A amps. What I want to do is just separate those that really are vs. those targeted as Market Class A amps......I just used the information given by the builder. If you can point out which is the Marketed one I'll make a note of it and put Market right next to the amp...

    Thanks again for your reply and for the help.......

    It does. Impressive, but slightly nutty.

    Eventually what you might want is a little database with all the various amps in there. I'm thinking along the lines of Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org) - where people can come and put all this information in one place and everyone can just browse it.

    And there's always going to be odd bits that no one person can get all of. For example there is a "Class A" Rivera M100. It was a prototype for a Will Ray model that never went to production. You can see preproduction ideas here (http://www.rivera.com/prod_msseries.htm)

    Will is currently working closely with Rivera on developing a signature model amp! Still in it's development phase, the new Will Ray Signature model will be a single-channel "Class A" (for it's smoother tonal characteristics, Will states) 80-watt combo utilizing a 12" EV or Celestion speaker. The channel's voicing will be similar to that of Rivera's famed "Channel 2", as found on many Rivera models, and will also facilitate a Parametric EQ for fine-tuning one's tone and/or to help eliminate possible feedback problems usually experienced with hollowbodies. Other unique features includes Reverb with knobs to adjust decay time as well as mix levels, and a first class Tremolo built right in! Truly an amp designed to conquer the land of Twangdom and beyond. Keep watching the Rivera site for more details about this exciting new amp as they are made available!


    Well the prototype is a little different. But it has the Class A power stage. I don't know a lot of things about this amp but I did talk to the guy that built it so I know it's the actual thing.

    Thanks for the info Splatt. I read about the Pittbull although there were no specifics for it and I did not want to make assumptions. The information has been updated though. About the Class A I thought that it was a mode (for the pittbull) and didn't know if that made it a true class A amp.....

    Thanks for the info again, and thank for looking....If you see anuthing else that needs to be corrected let me know......

    Great list. Thanks. You are fast becoming the unofficial librarian of TGP.

    Another addition: London by 65 Amps. Class A-as the term is generally bandied about. They aren't marketed that way however. I'm just going by information from Stu at Fatsound and my ears, of course. :)
