Budda Amps

Budda Amplification was founded in 1995, making it one of the newer amp companies around.  However, founding designers Scot Sier and Jeff Bober were no strangers to the amp world.  Both had experience designing and building amps.  In fact, the first amp they marketed under the Budda Amps label, the 18-watt Twinmaster Ten, was based on one of Bober’s early designs.  budda-ampsThey debuted the Twinmaster at the NAMM show in 1996, and they sold out of all 65 amps the first day of the show.  This lead Sier and Bober to creating a line of low wattage boutique amps.

By 2004, Budda had grown to the point that the company had to expand.  With new means of production, they were able to add new products and product lines, including the Superdrive line of amps.  These amps are of higher wattage than the Twinmaster.  They also introduced the Dual Stage line (which has been discontinued), the Stringmaster amps, and they released the Twinmaster Ten a decade after it hit the shelves as a way of celebrating the company’s tenth anniversary.

In addition to amps, Buddha also makes a line of pedals.  Some of their most well-known pedals include the BudWah wah wah pedal, the Phatman distortion pedal, and the Zenman distortion pedal.

Budda’s operating philosophy is that amps should enhance the guitar and inspire musicians to play better since they can hear themselves very clearly through a Budda amp.  They also strive to create innovative amps and pedals.  They’ve experimented with various tubes, cabinets, speakers, and more in an attempt to create the best equipment possible.

Budda’s products are used by beginners and professional players alike.  Carlos Santana, Good Charlotte’s Benji and Joel Madden, Matchbox 20’s Kyle Cook, and Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford are just a few people who use Budda amps and pedals.
