ON A SUNNY AFTERNOON IN 1968, Robert Gallien walked into his local music store, carrying an amplifier he had made in his garage. It had a unique design that impressed the storeowner, as well as a local club musician named Carlos Santana, who bought it the next day and took it to Woodstock. Thirty one years and thousands of amplifiers later, Bob Gallien is still designing some of the most innovative and highly sought after products on the market. His creations enjoy a heritage of recording and stage performances with the world’s most discriminating artists.
Gallien-Krueger is the leading manufacturer in the industry, maintaining uninterrupted U.S. production for over 40 years. Just as our earlier products are still telling their story, the products we create and produce here today will be talking to us for years to come.
