Two-Rock

Amplifier manufacturer Two-Rock has built a worldwide reputation as one of the best contemporary boutique builders. Their amplifiers are hand-wired and soldered use only the very best components, and feature many circuit innovations. In addition to the immaculate quality of their construction, Two-Rock amps possess an unrivalled, clear, warm sound.
Two-Rock was founded in 1999 under the name K & M Analog Designs by Bill Krinard and Joe Mloganoski; two amplifier building veterans who know more about the best amplifier designs of the past sixty years than anyone in the world. Within one year they moved to a business park near the town of Two Rock (!), and sold one of their first ten K & M Analog Designs amps to none other than Carlos Santana. Occasionally a K & M amplifier comes up for sale on eBay, for Dumblian prices. That may not be a coincidence, as tone connoisseurs often compare the clean sound of Two-Rock with that of the legendary Dumble amplifiers.

After Bill and Joe changed the name of their company to Two-Rock, in 2005 they built a Custom Reverb for pop guitar hero and heartbreaker John Mayer (signalling the arrival of the John Mayer Signature). The Custom Reverb has long remained the most popular Two-Rock top, thanks in particular to its extremely transparent and detailed, compression-free sound. A handy Two-Rock invention is the Countour control, a kind of boosted Presence control that effectively bridges the difference in sound and signal strength between a Strat and a Les Paul. This invention has found its way to many other Two-Rock models.

The current Two-Rock range of guitar amplifiers on the market is vast, ranging from the unsurpassed Studio Pro 22 combo to the Classic Reverb, a 50 watt top that is particularly popular with tone-savvy guitar heroes. Unsurprisingly, Two-Rock amps are a big hit with some of the biggest names in guitar: besides John Mayer, Joe Bonamassa, Matt Scofield and John Scofield, Eric Gales, Brad Whitford and Oz Noy are all fans.

When should you buy a Two-Rock? Most of all, when you are looking for a perfect clean sound. Furthermore, Two-Rock amplifiers are extremely responsive to the use of overdrive and other pedals. The Studio Pro range is currently the most popular, with the somewhat more robust Studio Pro Plus as a good second. The crystal-clear Crystal, the Fender Blackface-like Akoya and the Classic-Reverb, which are based on the popular John Mayer Signature model, are all excellent choices. Finally, the Cardiff and Burnside amps are small, tasty and won’t break the bank.
