Audio Kitchen is a tiny boutique amp brand from the UK. Despite their modest beginnings, the company has really made a name for itself over the last few years with its stylish mini valve amplifiers and pedals.
Audio Kitchen's fame has grown exponentially, with many high-profile UK rock artists relying on their hand-built guitar amplifiers for live and studio work - including Russell Lissack (Bloc Party), Nick Hodgson (Kaiser Chiefs) and Max Helyer (You Me At Six).
Simplicity is the brand's ethos, with founder Steve Crow stating that "the faster and less cluttered the response of an amp, the more inspiring I find it". Audio Kitchen deliberately avoids copying other established amp circuits too, and strives to produce the most engaging, original and musically-inspiring designs that it can.
Andertons Music Co. is currently stocking the brand's 'The Big Trees' and 'The Small Trees' pedals. While the latter is an organic-sounding boost pedal, the former is a pedalboard-based valve amp that relies on genuine ECC82, ECC83 preamp tubes and a single EL84 output valve to power its incredible tones.
