Kingsley Amplifiers was founded in 2000 by Simon Jarrett as a hand made tube guitar amplifier designer and maker. Although their first amplifiers were inspired by classic Vox and Fender-type circuits, all their products feature a combination of classic and original circuit design, with an emphasis on circuit simplicity, high quality and simple but useful features. The Kingsley Deluxe 30 was awarded the Guitar Player Magazine Editors Pick Award in 2001. Since then they have been busy refining their products and offering new designs - they now offer a full range of guitar amplifier models, from the low power Deluxe 1 up to the full featured ToneBaron.
In 2008 they introduced tube guitar pedals with the release of the Kingsley Jester overdrive and boost, since joined by other tube pedals as they continue to expand their pedal line. All Kingsley products (including the pedals) are hand built using tag boards and tag strips. Pots and tube sockets are chassis mounted. Power and output transformers for their guitar amplifiers are custom made for us by Heyboer Transformers.
