Amplifiers previously produced in Virginia Beach, VA from 1992 to 2000 and Brentwood, TN from 2000 to 2004. Previously distributed by L&M Amplifiers.
Holland Amplifiers was founded by Mike Holland on April 1, 1992 in Virginia Beach, VA while he was serving in the United States Navy. Mike worked on F14 fighter jets as a structural mechanic. On his kitchen table, using only all American components with specifications that were far above any other amp, Mike created the first Holland Tube Amplifier.
In 1998, Mike contacted Lane Zastrow, President of Lasar Music and former Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Gibson Guitar Corporation, to handle sales and marketing for Holland Amplifiers. Lane and Mike then decided to become partners and formed L&M Amplifiers in July of 2000. In September of 2000, Holland moved its operations from Virginia Beach to Brentwood, Tennessee.
Holland Amplifiers were completely handmade with point-to-point wiring, whether it was a standard model or a custom amp. At their peak, Holland was producing over ten models and distributed them throughout the world, but in 2004, Holland stopped producing amplifiers with Mr. Zastrow, who converted the factory to a production facility for his Heritage Amplifier line. As Heritage, they produced a full line of amplifiers that featured some carryover from the Holland line including the Kenny Burrell model, and they even utilized the same address and phone number as Holland's. However, Heritage stopped producing amplifiers in 2008. In 2007, Holland founded Nashville Audio Research Laboratories International, LLC and renewed production of the Holland line.
