Working on a dream amp....You're at the right place!
Tones You Know - Thanks for stopping by to look at our amps! My name is Jim Frenzel. I am an old "rock n' roll" guy from the 50's. I built my first tube amp in 1952, and I was hooked...more. Our amps are very different from anything else you will find in the boutique amp market. They were inspired by the classic 50's-60's tube amp designs that create the "tones you know and love" plus they have many added features and custom options not found in the original vintage amps which allows you to create your own design and your own individual tones! We manufacture a wide variety of amps and preamps for musical instruments and home entertainment use. They have a large selection of upgrade options including head, combo and speaker cabinets, and we can configure them to suit your special individual requirements. More technical info, detailed information, specifications, photos, videos, and sound clips of our amps may be found on the individual amp web pages listed on the MENU BAR at the top of the page.
Custom Handcrafted Cabinets - Many of our amps are sold as open chassis amps. This allows you to show off the tubes...and gives you the option to build your own custom cabinets and save money. We are constantly amazed at the talent of our customers and we invite you to look at our Pictures & Links page which shows some of the great custom cabs our customers have built. We also offer enclosures including vintage steel cages, head cabs, combo cabs, and rack mount road cases. More info may be found on our Custom Cabinets page.
Hand-Wired Reliabilty - All of our amps are point-to-point hand-wired with no printed circuits or terminal boards. We use military style tie-wrapped wiring harnesses for long life and reliability. It takes longer to build an amp that way, but the end result is worth it. We think of our amps as works of art. Great care is taken in the routing of the wiring and placement of parts to provide the best signal path. Only the best of parts including low noise polypropylene capacitors, metal film resistors, Switchcraft jacks, Micalex sockets, premium heavy duty transformers and high grade hook-up wire are used in our amps. All tubes are prescreened for noise and hum, and tested for optimum performance before insertion in the amp. Before shipping, each amp is tested extensively for 24 hours on the test bench in the lab and on speakers in our test lab. This attention to detail produces an amp that will last for generations and give long dependable service. When we ship an amp, our goal is to deliver more than the customer expected. We put our name on our products and our name and reputation are more important to us than anything. Read our Reviews & Feedback page and you will see the truth in this statement.
Factory-Direct Affordable Prices - We are oftened asked why our amps are so inexpensive compared to other name-brand boutique type amps. The answer is that we sell direct to the customer. We do not use dealers, so there is no middle man or dealer mark up. Also we do not spend money on advertising. All of our business comes from reviews on the web and customer referrals. And finally, we do not stock any amps and thus have large amounts of money tied up in inventory. All of our amps are custom built to order. This allows the customer to choose only the options he wants and thereby control the price. All of these reasons allow us to build high-quality tube amplifiers at reasonable prices that will outperform and outlast any of the "re-issue" namebrand type amps now being mass produced in China. You can't beat our prices anywhere!

Dedicated & Experienced Design Team - Everyone at Frenzel is a master craftsman, loves their work, loves music and loves people. My three son's who got me started building guitar tube amps for them in the 70's when they were teenagers are now all part of the design team...and excuse me if I brag a bit...fantastic guitar players! Trevor has his own design lab which specializes in amps with multi-mode high-gain preamps. With my sons help and a lot of input from our "tone freak" friends, we have designed, built, and restored thousands of tube amps for musicians all over the world. Quality is our most important product, so we hand-build and hand-wire everything in-house at our rock'n little factory in the woods of east Texas.
Great Reviews - To our devoted friends, fans and customers, we cannot possibly thank you enough! If it were not for you and your great reviews and referrals, we would not be here. Your kind words and compliments on our amps give meaning to what we do here at Frenzel.
