LEE JACKSON
Amplifiers and other electronic products currently produced in Austin TX since the 2000s. Amplifiers previously produced in Cape Girardeau, MO from 1993 to 1996 and Austin, TX during the late 1990s.
Lee Jackson has been involved in many different music companies over the years including B.C. Rich, Fender, Pignose, Metaltronix, Ampeg, and Harmony. Even though he has designed many amplifiers, he didn't produce his own until 1993. Harmony Music asked him to design some amplifiers and they would name the company around him. During his time with Harmony he produced XLS-1000 series first and the XLA-1000 followed shortly thereafter. The XLA-1000 amp was a direct copy of the amps that he had built for Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai, and George Lynch. Jackson made amplifiers up until 1996 when Horizon had some problems within the company, and they put the amp project on hold. As they tried to get Lee Jackson amplifiers going again in 2001, the stock market crashed and investors in the new amplifiers became very skeptical. This was bad news for Jackson as they were giving a presentation the day the market crashed. With the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, all the investors got really scared and pulled out all money and support. In 2002, Uponus Technologies developed a new computer chip to compress music files, which was very helpful with digital processing and recording. Later on in the 2000s, Jackson moved back to Austin and met some engineers from North Shore Circuit Designs. There, he has developed a new line of Lee Jackson amplifiers as well as guitar pedals. Current models include the XLA-1000 100W head, XLS-1000 50/100W head, and the XLCS-1000 50/100W combo. For more information, visit Lee Jackson's website or contact him directly.
