Why to choose a Dreamaker amp?

  • SOMETHING SPECIAL
    I like to think that the reason why you came across this website is the same one that led me to pursue my passion: the search for something special.

    When I decided to make my first amplifier the idea was clear: make the best amplifier I could imagine. Today, as then, I continue to pursue the same goal, dedicating all the time and resources needed to each project, without limitations.

  • CRAFTMANSHIP
    To create something special, it is essential for me to be able to pay due attention to every single aspect of production, and in my opinion this is only possible through a totally artisanal production process. Quality materials and craftsmanship are certainly not enough to offer an excellent product, you need expertise and experience. Today, after over 15 years of activity spent day by day refining my projects, I am certain that I can offer a product created and cared for in detail like few others in the world.

  • ESSENTIALITY
    All Dreamaker products are characterized by a deliberate and refined design essentiality in order to optimize the efficiency of the electronic circuits, to contain noise floor, to guarantee optimal performance and reliability. The design of an amplifier is not finished until I am sure I have eliminated all the superfluous.

  • EVOLUTION
    Like many other builders, I am often inspired by the great classics, but instead of fossilizing myself in the past, I constantly work on their evolution to overcome their technical and functional limits, thus giving life to new projects that embody the best of vintage and modern. After all, as Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”.

  • RELIABILITY
    Strength and reliability are, in my opinion, essential elements of a guitar amplifier. All the Dreamaker, are built to last a lifetime without any special maintenance, easily supporting even the most intense professional tour.

  • DIRECT SUPPORT FROM THE MAKER
    Whether your amplifier needs technical assistance or you need simple usage advice, you can always count on my direct and immediate support. Nobody knows your amplifier better than its manufacturer.

  • VALUE
    Building an amplifier by hand requires a processing time that is not comparable to an industrial amplifier. The same applies to the cost of a selected component compared to a standard one. Nonetheless, the price for a Dreamaker is never too far from that of a well-made industrial product.


HERE ARE SOME CONSTRUCTION DETAILS THAT YOU WILL NOT EASILY FIND IN OTHER AMPLIFIERS:

HAND-WIRED
The hand-wired construction technique is the most desirable in a guitar amplifier. It provides a degree of reliability, robustness and longevity that are simply not comparable to the more common "printed circuit board" used today. It also guarantee the easiest servicing experience ever. If you can still spot some amplifiers of 50 or more years on the stages around the world, much of the credit goes to this glorious construction technique. Hand wiring also allows to easily test new ideas, update or customize existing circuits, to constantly evolve. The only negative aspect of this technique is the long time it takes to complete it. Fortunately for you this task is not up to you!
HIGHLY SELECTED COMPONENTS
Tubes, condensers, resistors, potentiometers and all other electronic components used are carefully selected to ensure maximum reliability and sound performance.
TOP GRADE TRANSFORMERS
Allow for maximum power, bandwidth and dynamics even in the most extreme conditions, because the transformers are the heart of a tube amplifier.
STAR GROUNDING
A proper grounding scheme it's essential if you want a quiet amp. The use of a star grounding scheme (or multiple star grounding for more complex circuits) allows for the best control over any unwanted noise.

CHASSIS MOUNTED TUBE SOCKETS
In most commercial amplifiers the tube sockets are soldered directly to the printed circuit board. In a guitar amplifier nothing can guarantee the same reliability as a chassis-mounted socket wired with individual flexible cables.

SMART LAYOUT
Each component is meticulously positioned inside of the chassis so as to be directly accessible without having to disassemble other parts. To service an amplifier has never been easier.
STAINLESS STEEL CHASSIS
Extremely tough, rust and oxidation-proof. As with all things, starting with the right foot is essential.
TEXTS ENGRAVED ON ALUMINIUM
These writings are considered simply eternal. No more peeling or faded letters.
100% HANDMADE
By purchasing a Dreamaker you can be sure to buy a 100% handmade amplifier. Because just a label is not enough to guarantee a real handmade product.

DESIGN
Last but not least, Dreamaker amplifiers boast an elegant, unique and recognizable design.
