In today's episode we chat with Mac Skinner, Co-Owner of Two-Rock Amps. We chat about how he went from working in the restaurant world to being a co-owner of a boutique guitar amp company. Two-Rock amps have been used by some of the leading guitar players around the world including John Mayer, Matt Schofield, Eric Gales, and Steve Kimock.
Founded in 1999 with performance and customer service in mind, Two-Rock Amplifiers was founded by Bill Krinard and Joe Mloganoski and in just a few years’ time, it became the boutique industry leader.
In November of 2016, Mac Skinner (Two-Rock operations exec) and longtime Two-Rock artist Eli Lester, teamed up to purchase the brand. Additionally, they’ve brought back the original Two-Rock co-founder and designer, Bill Krinard as the designer/engineer on the team.
This group of amplifier artisans has continued to deliver fully transparent and touch sensitive tonal performance at the very highest level of the industry. It’s this hand-wired point to point excellence that has been relied upon by musicians worldwide.
