Boutique Amps For Sale on Reverb

At Reverb, we love boutique amps. Why? Because they really do sound incredible. Boutique amp builders are known for being meticulous about the components they use and the quality of their craftsmanship. Sure, it can be more expensive to choose a handmade boutique amp. But between the amazing tone and the outstanding resale value, we think they're well worth the investment.

What Is a Boutique Guitar Amp?

A boutique guitar amp is typically a hand-wired guitar amp by a small, independent builder or team. They’re often original designs, or based on some of the most sough-after amplifiers in guitar history. The best boutique amps are lovingly made by passionate experts around the world, and are used by some of the top players today.

Do Hand-Wired Amps Sound Better?

This is a major topic of debate in the guitar world today, and has been for years. Hand-wired or not, high-quality components will sound better in boutique guitar amps vs. those that are mass-produced. But, most importantly, hand-wired amps built by boutique builders who are experts in their field (and know what to do with those quality parts) are going to produce a great product.

Are Boutique Amps Worth It?

Whether a boutique amp is worth it is completely up to you. Affordable boutique guitar amps can be found for a few hundred dollars, but they can balloon in price to over $20,000 USD. If you like the sound of the amp and it’s in your price range, we say that that it's worth it—whether boutique or not.

Another thing to keep in mind about boutique amps is that they often seem to hold their value better than mass-produced amps, so you can buy with confidence knowing that when you're finished with your journey, you can resell it on Reverb.
