About Jackson Ampworks

Jackson Ampworks is a small boutique amplifier shop located just north of Fort Worth, TX. Our daily focus is to deliver the best sounding, most reliable and musical sounding instruments possible that inspire the player to greater heights in his/her craft. We are very blessed to have been growing continually since we began full time operations in 2010. This growth, during one of the worst economic climates in US history, is largely due to our loyal customers and dealers without whom we would not be in operation today.

Design Philosophy

Early in the design stages of the Jackson Ampworks series of amplifiers, many design standards and ideas were adopted and adhered to. Some of these design standards are as follows:

Made In America

First and foremost I believe in the power of American industry. With countless companies outsourcing jobs overseas to save on the bottom line, it becomes more and more critical that we work to keep American jobs in this country. Every time you purchase a Jackson Ampworks product either from us or from a dealer, you are supporting American workers so they can support their families. I am very proud to say that every Jackson Ampworks product ever made has been made in the US. Always has been. Always will be.

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 be designed in from the beginning.

We at Jackson Ampworks do not simply add features until the resulting amplifier sounds impressive. We on the other hand start with a clean slate and establish the design goals for an amplifier, and then only when that goal has been met do we proceed with adding additional features.

At Jackson Ampworks we 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 we have never allowed ourselves to do. By using the highest quality parts and processes, we can be certain that our amplifiers are the best amplifiers available and will provide the user with a lifetime of toneful and worry-free service.

Use the Best/Highest Quality Parts Available

Every Jackson Ampworks amplifier is a testament to build quality in every area. From our precision cut and welded aluminum chassis, to our over-spec transformers, you simply cannot find an amplifier that is better or more carefully constructed.
