Birdwood Guitars is happy to offer a wonderful range of rare vintage amplifiers as well as an amazing range of locally made, hand built vintage amplifiers made by OAK AMPS.

Tim has a knack of finding old studio amplifiers and other treasures that he can convert into amazing guitar amplifiers. He uses vintage and vintage-spec components to craft amazing tube amps under the Oak Amps label.
