AmpeteAmpete Engineering is located in Cologne and produces very good sounding tube amplifiers and elaborate switching systems. As with many small "boutique" -producers there was always someone who started of creating his own equipment because he was not happy with the sound he had from the stock devices that could be found on the market. This was no different at Ampete Engineering and they have invested a lot of time and put their hearts into the optimization of their equipment. The "unhappy guy " at Ampete Engineering who is also the Mastermind and also the Pete in Ampete is Peter Arends. His designs are convincing in sound, quality and Usuability.
