2013 – Vintage
audio specialists and instrument manufacturers Analog Outfitters have
announced that they will be attending the upcoming 2014 NAMM tradeshow.
The company specializes in creating an unparalleled musical experience
with an eco-friendly twist. Utilizing unused
or unwanted Hammond organ components, they have created two product
lines of guitar amplifiers and MIDI controllers that are as
unprecedented as they are unique.
the past year the company has been met with curiosity and recognition
by industry professionals including Jeff Ament [Pearl Jam], Nels Cline
[Wilco], Dr. Lonnie Smith, John Scofield, Charlie Sexton [Bob Dylan],
and Kevin Breit [Sisters Euclid]. Their custom designed
BAD Lieutenant bass amplifier is currently on tour with Pearl Jam and their newest addition to their guitar amplifier lineup, the
Super SARGE, is to be featured on the newest Wilco album.
Analog Outfitters will be showcasing several new product innovations at the upcoming NAMM expo including their new line of
ORGANic MIDI controllers. Retrofitted from Hammond organs, this
series of keyboard controllers and accessories provides a digital MIDI
interface designed to offer the exact feel and control delivered by
traditional Hammond B3 organs without the cumbersome
weight, delicate construction, or temperamental tendency to break down.
ORGANic controllers utilize actual Hammond keys, drawbars, and
switches while still possessing Leslie speaker compatibility, making
them ideal for touring professionals, recording artists, and even venue
and rental companies who want more reliability
from their organ without sacrificing its raw, vintage nature.
Analog Outfitters’ newest model of guitar amplifier, the
Super SARGE, will also be on display. The result of a
collaboration with Nels Cline of Wilco, this amplifier is a 30 watt
revision of their original
SARGE amplifier. This revamp offers more headroom and power than its 15 watt counterpart while employing the same great tone the
SARGE is known for. These guitar amplifiers utilize vintage
Hammond amp chassis, transformers, and other components to generate
exceptional tone and energy. Since the inception of the Super
SARGE the company has seen increasing interest from professional artists such as Jeff Ament and Loren Ellis [Easton Corbin].

instruments. The company strives to keep the rich, classic culture of
quality vintage electronics alive in the modern music world while
reducing its environmental impact by salvaging components from
