If you're new to TopHat, we can guarantee you'll be blown away - we certainly are. If you've known about TopHat for years but it's been a bit since you've plugged into one? Welcome back - and prepare to be as impressed as ever.
With a penchant for quintessential Vox and Marshall archetypes and the classic guitar tones of players such as Jimmy Page (with whom he shares a birthday), Brian Gerhard of TopHat Amplifiers has taken Top Hat from modest beginnings to stages and recording studios across the globe.
Always the perfectionist, Gerhard says he approaches his passion with a practical purpose meant to aid working players, producers, and engineers who demand top-quality tones and reliable performance. He’s emphatic in his belief that each component—from glue and capacitors to tubes, speakers, and cabinet design—has such an impact that each demands exquisite attention.
Players: Bonnie Raitt, Cesar Rojas, David Hidalgo, Dan Huff, Dean Parks, Greg Leisz, Michael Landau, Pete Thorn, Rusty Anderson, and too many others to list!
