WHO WE ARE
Fortress amplification is a boutique company founded by Vadim Novikov and Valery Ryazantsev.
Valery - is the brains behind all the circuits and engineering. One and only assembler.
Vadim - is testing and adjuster, design and promotion.
OUR MISSION AND VISION
The idea behind it was to create tone as we visualized (or should we say audiated) it in our heads after many years of working with best of and modding some of the world’s finest amps.
Vintage equipment is gradually becoming unusable, but what is now offered by mass market corporations is totaly downshifting and real obscurantism. Glory to professionals and enthusiasts who treat production with responsibility and total dedication!
We want to make our own contribution to the preservation and development of the musical culture.
Music should sound!
In 2008, with our participation, TubeTone Russia was founded, which was engaged in educational activities, modding and repair of music equipment, as well as representation in Russia of such brands as Diezel, Hiwatt UK, Jmi, Soldano, Friedman, Alessandro, Fractal Audio, Kemper Gmbh, Vovox, Bkp pickups, Heyboyer transformer ...
In 2015, we managed to create the first prototype of an amplifier of our own design, which satisfied all our aspirations in guitar sound. In 2016, the work on designing guitar cabinets was successfully completed, and in 2017 the first analog pedals of guitar effects produced under the Fortress brand appeared.
