Echopark Guitars has unveiled its new amp, The Clarence.

But first, some history.

Echopark Guitars owner and luthier Gabriel Currie built the company, and its guitars, based on his talent and aesthetic for materials of the finest quality, based on a modern vintage philosophy and the lust for the perfect tone.

In late 2014, Echopark Amplifiers was created to follow the tradition established by Echopark Guitars.

This year, Echopark Amplifiers will release a small family of all-tube, point-to-point hand-wired amps. Based on a few of their favorite iconic designs, these amps will feature tube vibratos in two models, a solid Douglas fir cabinet construction, 100 percent U.S. electronic components and military specification appointments.

All models have been designed and built by Currie and long-time amplifier designer, builder and tech Eric Bernstorff in the Echopark Guitars shop in Los Angeles.

The Clarence will be on stages beginning in April with Jimmy Vivino, Queens of the Stone Age's Troy Van Leeuwen, Blackberry Smoke's Charlie Starr, Greg Leisz and Joe Perry.
