Elmwood Amps was founded in 1998 in Sweden by Jan Alm. The goal was to build guitar tube amplifiers with the most outstanding sound and functionality available.
The Elmwood staff, and everyone who has ever tried an Elmwood are of the opinion that Elmwood has succeeded.
From the beginning, the goal was to take the best parts of historical tube amplifiers while critically questioning the original ideas - making them better - re-inventing the great potential of tube characteristics to create a sound that would stun the world - the Elmwood sound.
The Elmwood amps are built to last. Only parts of highest possible quality are used and each Elmwood product is carefully tested and approved before shipping.
An Elmwood amp is an amazing extension of the performing guitarist's heart and soul, providing the most genuine and expressive tones imaginable. Elmwood users all over the world give testimonials of the fantastic response, versatility and tone of their Elmwood amps.
The amps are designed with a special attention to live performance versatility - giving endless possibilities of shaping your sound with your guitar volume, tone settings, picking technique, string handling, EQ settings and channel switching.
An Elmwood will be your best companion no matter what your style of playing - from soft whispers to hard punches - from lush clean to screaming high gain - from heaven to hell - always interacting with your deepest musical intentions.
We are always glad to get to know our existing and future users - to get your feedback and to give you the best service possible.
Keep in touch,
