Technical issues and scheduling conflicts threw a monkey wrench in the scheduled Guitarcaster topic, so Trevor and Juan decided toon a long form interview with Jake about how he started his company Steamboat Amps. This episode has been a long time coming. Located in Houston, Texas, Jake has thrown his entire existence into the company since he was legal to walk into a bar. Now with nearly 15 years under his belt, Steamboat Amps is the premiere boutique amp builder in Texas.
This is an excellent episode for those looking to get into building effects or amplifiers. Jake walks us through his child hood, where he learned to love guitar, his first apprenticeship, all the way to the various models he has to offer today. In addition, Jake has been putting out a different prototype nearly every month and the boys dive into that towards the end.
Hit up Steamboat Amps for a custom build or simply a repair on your beloved tube amp. They can also set you up with modifications on pedals and effects.
