2014 Louis Electric KR12 Tube Amplifier

Brand:

Louis Electric is run by Louis Rosano, who has been designing and hand building amps for over 20 years, with a who’s who client list including Keith Richards, Hubert Sumlin and Warren Hanes. These amps are individually hand built of carefully selected and tested components. The tonal inspiration for these amplifiers is mid-1950’s Fender amps, like the 1958 Tweed Twinmaster.

The Louis Electric KR12 design is drawn from the amp built for and used by Hubert Sumlin, who for years was Howlin Wolf’s guitarist. It’s a 40 or 20 watt amp with 1×12 inch speaker and uses EL34 tubes.

This is a great sounding blues / rock amp, with tons of tone. Check out the YouTube demo of the amp at the Louis Electic site – it is very well worth hearing. This example dates to 2014 and is in very good condition.

Visit the Louis Electric website for more information on the KR12!
