Great news! Golden age is the latest dealer for Top Hat Amplifiers. After some careful consideration of different brands we’ve decided tio go with Top Hat. Top Hats owner and designer, Brian Gerhard, has worn many hats (pardon the pun) in the music business from home stereo to recording to guitar player which has allowed him to develope his ears to a point where it lets him to fine tune the sounds of his amps to perfection. His early musical favorites include Jimmy Page, ZZ Top, Aerosmith, early AC/DC, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Faces and, of course the Rolling Stones. These references inform the sound that Brian is after, which is largely based on classic British sounds. To that end Top Hat stays mostly with Celestions as their speakers of choice. But he doesn’t just re-create it – he tweaks and improves on it. Top Hats tend to appeal to vintage purists while offering more options and flexibility. Top Hats client list includes: Bonnie Raitt, Buzz Feiten, Cesar Rojas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, Jon Leventhal, Michael Landau, Michael Thompson, Pete Thorn, Walter Becker and Rusty Anderson. We have a Supreme Club Deluxe coming in a few weeks, followed shortly by a Emplexador 50 head, Supreme 16 head and a Special Design 1 x 12″ speaker cabinet.
