Hoyt Harness, owner/operator/amp builder of Monster Factory Amplification, says, "I've been annoyed for years that wicked new guitars specially suited to today's heavy metal musicians are always coming out, but the amps out there that these rockers are forced to choose from continue to be the same old thing their daddies and granddaddies played. Nobody has really stepped up to the plate and made these guys something as heavy looking and heavy sounding as their music deserves."
"Heavy" is the just the right word to describe Monster Factory amps. The Swamp Thang, Monster Factory's current flagship, is a beast of an amplifier. It's got looks, attitude, and tone to spare. 120 watts of metal madness in the form of a two-channel, all-tube head and a custom 4x12 Eminence-loaded cabinet let the boys (and girls) in the band know that "the times, they are a-changin'."
The Boneyard Series is a line of more affordable tube amplifiers aimed at today's gigging club musicians who need all the punch and power they can get for their hard-earned dollar. This, coupled with a host of customizable options, makes this one of the most exciting tube amplifier lines in a very long time.
The MONSTER-izer is another area of the Monster Factory that's devoted to turning customer's amps into fire-breathing dragons! Customers can send in their existing amplifier platforms (Monster Factory calls them 'victims'!) to have them completely customized and returned, ready for metal mayhem.
From the Monster Factory website: "Every amp coming out of Monster Factory Amplification is a hand-made creation that is painstakingly crafted and assembled using choice components and refined techniques to deliver the best in tube amplification for musical instrument use. If you want an amplifier that's custom designed just for you at a price that's reasonable — and with tone that boils your blood — you've come to the right place... the place where sound comes ALIVE!" We couldn't have said it better.
