Mad Professor Amps Boutique Guitar Amplification and Stompbox Effects Pedals

On this video from winter NAMM 2011, Harri is taking us through the new amps & pedals from Mad Professor

Old School 11 combo and Old School 21 combo, Stone Grey Distortion and Blueberry Bass Overdrive.

Nicolai from V&R on Mad Professor: “About five to six years ago I purchased an original 1981 Gibson Flying V Korina guitar from a gentleman in UK.

He told me he was selling his beloved Flying V to raise money for what he called the worlds best amplifier – the CS-40 amphead from Mad Professor Amplification.
That was the first time I came across the magnificent scandinavian boutique amp & pedals company from Finland – Mad Professor Amps.”

At that time we were taking our first babysteps with Vintage & Rare and one day I called up Harri Koski and told him about our project – V&R. We have now been working closely with Harri and his team since then and are proud to have
Mad Professor onboard with us.
Hope this will inspire you.

All the best,
Nicolai & Team
