Black Volt not only offers the highest quality in amplifier repair to anyone in the USA, but they also offer a boutique hand made new amplifier line. Each Black Volt Amplifier is completely handmade and carved out of the raw materials one at a time, then signed by Gio. Black Volt makes the cabinets, the metal chassis, the circuits and all. Many amps are a combination of new and vintage parts that are utilized to more closely replicate the sound and feel of the highly sought after holy grail amps. It is normal practice here to use reclaimed lumber for the amp cabs. Quite often 100 year old solid, aged and dried pine is used in the cabinetry. Much like the wood from an old amp or fine vintage instrument, it pings and rings when you tap it.
