Vintage Guitar Amps

Achillies Amplification: Providing Vintage Replica Guitar Amps in Australia Since 2006

Attention all students of audio and rock 'n' roll history: Achillies Amplification is the place to go if you are looking for vintage guitar amps in Australia. Since 2006, we have been working out of a single location in Melbourne to provide customers with high-quality, hand-built guitar amplifiers. In 2014, we launched an online store, so that we can serve an even broader range of guitar players throughout Australia.

Vintage Amps Built in the Style of Blackface, Tweed and More

One of our specialties at Achillies Amplification has always been building stunning replicas of vintage amps from a time gone by. Many of our customers are incredibly knowledgeable about amplifier history and evolution and are particularly fond of old amp designs from companies like Fender Musical Instruments and Marshall Amplification.

To best serve these knowledgeable guitar enthusiasts, we at Achillies Amplification create top-quality vintage amp replicas, right here at our Melbourne location. Fender fans will be impressed by the look and sound of our Blackface, Tweed and Tweed Deluxe amp replicas, while longtime users of Marshall amplifiers will love how our vintage guitar amps capture the retro aesthetic of Plexi amplifiers.

Finding a High-Quality Vintage Guitar Amp—Not a Knockoff

At Achillies Amplification, we often get feedback from customers who say something along the lines of 'I didn't expect my amp to look and sound this good.' In other words, we pride ourselves on consistently exceeding customer expectations.

When it comes to delivering a quality product and providing superior customer service, we at Achillies Amplification can exceed expectations in two primary ways. First of all, we know our vintage guitar amps. Achillies Amplification started out as a one-man passion project, built by an entrepreneur with a true love for guitars and a deep, deep knowledge base for amplification technologies. This passion and knowledge can be felt in every single amplifier we build. We build each vintage guitar amp to match the specs of an original Fender or Marshall product, applying hand-built craftsmanship and attention to detail to every single product we sell.

The second reason that you can count on Achillies Amplification for your vintage amp needs is our drive to improve the amps we are imitating. When you shop with Achillies, you aren't just buying some cheap replica of a beloved Fender or Marshall amp. Instead, you are investing in an amp that not only uses the highest quality materials on the market but also takes advantage of advances in technology. Most of the vintage guitar amp designs we build come from the 1950s and 1960s. Needless to say, sonic technology has evolved quite a bit since then. So when you buy a Tweed or Blackface replica from Achillies, you can rest assured that we have taken the necessary steps to improve the efficiency, sound and tone of the original amp.
