Tris Mahaffay founded Songworks (now Mahaffay Amplifiers) Systems and Products in 1990- as a home based business to design and test various musical instrument devices he wanted to market. He joined NAMM in 1994, and determined to find a gap in the market he began developing a tiny tube based amp. This became the Little Lanilei tube amp, which was launched at the winter NAMM show in 1997. Since then Mahaffay has added three new models as well as a few other devices - such as the "Little Lanilei Rotary Wave Speaker". These are all still hand built one at a time, just like the originals, using point to point construction.
