“Jackson Ampworks was created in 2003 out of a desire to produce the highest quality and best sounding guitar amplifiers possible all at a price that is affordable to working musicians.” – Brad Jackson
Since 2003 Jackson Ampworks has established itselves as a manufacturer of the highest quality guitar amplifiers available, and during that time they have gained the respect and endorsement of many of the music industry’s best players. Initially though, this quality did not come without a price. To keep the quality of their products high they were forced to keep their prices high in order to remain in business. However in 2009, they underwent a massive restructuring that now allows them to offer their products at a fraction of their original cost and still maintain the tone and quality that they are known for!
Early in the design stages of the Jackson Ampworks series of amplifiers, many design standards were adopted and adhered to. Some of these design standards are as follows:
Simple Is Better -
When designing an amplifier, the more simple and clean the audio path is, the more pure and true the resulting tone will be. That is why great tone has to be designed in from the beginning.
Jackson Ampworks does not simply add features until the resulting amplifier sounds impressive. Instead, they start with a clean slate and establish the design goals for an amplifier, and then only when that goal has been met do they proceed with adding additional features.
At Jackson Ampworks they feel strongly that when you first play a Jackson Ampworks amplifier, both you and your ears will agree - simple is better!
Do Not Cut Corners on Quality or Tone -
When designing and manufacturing a product, there are countless opportunities to cut costs for the sake of saving a few dollars, but that is something that Jackson Ampworks has never allowed themselves to do. By using the highest quality parts and processes, they can be certain that their amplifiers are the best amplifiers available and will provide the user with a lifetime of toneful and worry-free service.
Turret Board Construction -
In the opinion of those at Jackson Ampworks, turret board construction represents the most rugged, reliable and toneful method of creating a circuit board. Many guitar amplifiers which are 40+ years old feature turret board construction, and are still working flawlessly, a testament to the durability of the turret board type of construction.
