Jazz Amps for Jazz Musicians

The Henriksen JazzAmp has proven itself to be THE jazz guitar amplifier for gigging jazz musicians over the past decade.  Designed from the ground up for perfect jazz guitar tone, the JazzAmp provides all the power, portability and features a jazz guitar player needs.  The JazzAmp is 135 watts of analog power with a 5 band graphic EQ, reverb, input gain control, studio grade line out, extension speaker out and headphone out. The JazzAmp is offered in two sizes; a 10″ speaker and a 12″ speaker.  The 10″ cabinet is smaller and more portable and has a slightly tighter response to cut through the mix of larger combos.  The 12″ cabinet was originally designed as an upright bass cabinet and is a bit softer and can handle lower frequencies, making it more ideally suited for solo fingerstyle, 7-string guitar or bass players.

Features and Specifications

The JazzAmpTM  is the third generation JazzAmp combo jazz guitar amplifier.  It delivers amazing jazz guitar or bass tone in a small package with a feature set to cover just about any situation.  The JazzAmp features an Eminence Beta speaker and a defeat-able Eminence tweeter for an even, full range response in a cabinet designed to handle the low end of an upright bass yet maintain high end complexities necessary for guitar.  The Beta speaker gives you a warm, dark and mellow tone and the tweeter creates a high frequency dimension that sparkles and really brings out acoustic qualities of your guitar, and will add an acoustic quality to your solid body guitars or EUB’s.

Jazz Tele

We often get asked how our amps work for jazz tele players, this video from Sound Pure demonstrates a 12″ JazzAmp with a Tele style guitar.

Choosing the right amp can be a nightmare for a guitarist. The factors that go into the decision process are innumerable! This is why I play Henriksen JazzAmps exclusively. In all my years of playing, I felt like I found the “Holy Grail” when I discovered Henriksen. My sound has never been better or more consistent. Henriksen cares about their product and their customers.

This is my second 110, and I’m STILL lovin’ it! My first was a very early model. Used it everywhere from small clubs to the Kennedy Center. Now with more power and better reverb, the Jazz Amp just got even better. To my ears, it is the answer to the sterile, hi-fi sound of some SS amps, and the boxy nasalness of others… The EQ is the key. Allows you to dial in a natural sound in any room.

The amp arrived! It sounds great, looks great, and the gig bag is excellent too! There’s so many sounds I can achieve with it, and I’ve only just begun experimenting with the EQ! And the reverb is by far the best built-in digital verb I’ve ever heard. I can’t wait to use this on my gig this weekend! Thanks a bunch, this amp is a definite winner for jazz. It makes my custom Ibanez semi-hollowbody sing! Thanks for everything.
