Be innovative and combine well proven traditional solutions with new technology possibilities.

Who are we?

Our key interest is to build HAND MADE FULL TUBE amplifiers for guitar and bass players. We also do maintenance and service work for tube guitar and bass amps when needed. We have played a long time in different bands rock and pop music playing with many well known commercial tube amps. That`s why we have always been very interested in good guitar and bass sounds. First Bluetone amps were manufactured by using the experience and knowledge of the best existing tube guitar and bass amps in the world.

When we build Bluetone products, our main goal is not to create an exact copy of original brands, but to modify original schematics to a point where we can say that we have added some extra to them technically and soundwise.

We also use new technology where ever we can to get more out of Bluetone amps, but we only use it to create better and more useful amps. One example is to use variac style OPC (Output Power Control) technology to help better tone out of an amp with lower volumes. We have already installed OPC to many Bluetone amps sucessfully.

The main principles, which are guiding us are:

SCALABILITY. It means that the same amp has to sound excellent from bed room level to club venues. This is done with different power control methods like PPIMV Master volume and OPC (output power control)

PLAYABILITY. It measn that our amp has to be responsive to your playing from low volumes to full power blast

PORTABILITY. This means the light weightest full tube guitar and bass amps in the market. Using aluminium chassis, toroidial power transformers and lightweight Paulownia timber in cabinets we can do it.

RELIABILIY. This means, that building Bluetone amps our way, we can give 10 years warranty to them. This is not very usual in themarket.
