Hamstead Soundworks was born out of the fusion of two obsessions; one for tone, and one for electronic design. The story began with Jim Bird asking Peter Hamstead to replicate an old guitar amplifier. It had been modified over the years, and despite being a mess of tacked on parts, it sounded truly amazing. Looking at whether he could replicate it, Peter soon found that he could better it. This irresistible collaboration serves as our foundation to this very day, ensuring that each product we create is not just a musical instrument, but an incredible experience to inspire your musical expression.
Our approach to amp and pedals is different, not for the sake of it, but because we believe there to be a better way. You won't find what we do anywhere else.
