Bruce Egnater founded Egnater Custom Amplification in 1980. Egnater started out like many amp builders: he was looking for a certain tone out of a guitar amp and no product existed in the market, so he set out to create his own. In the 1970s, true tube saturation was only achieved by running a Marshall amp wide open. Egnater took a small Gibson amp book and replaced the speaker with a resistor and inserted the output from the Gibson amp into the input of a Marshall 200 Watt head that allowed the guitarist to add distortion without turning up volume. Egnater later came up with a channel switching amp that could produce both clean and overdrive tones from the same unit. Egnater received a patent for his modular musical amplification system where the pre-amp sections of an amp are modular and can be changed out of an amp. In the late 2000s, Egnater introduced a full line of standard tube amplifiers. They currently produce custom modular amplifier combos, heads, pre-amps and speaker cabinets.
