"To all those cats out there who are serious about doing the music justice, the "Captain Trips" amp from Louis Electric gets right to the heart of the Jerry tone. The rest is up to your fingers." - Tom San Filippo, lead guitarist of Half Step



Captain Trips Amp Head


In the late 1960's and 1970's a unique sound in San Francisco was developing.  Clean highs, barking mids and a distinct bottom end defined a band and a movement's sound. Steve Parish (road manager of the Grateful Dead) of Hard Truckers and Louis Rosano from Louis Electric Amplifiers came together to create first authentic reproduction of the sound and style of Jerry Garcia.

Four (4) KT-90 power tubes creates 150 watts of power based upon Jerry Garcia's beloved amp with a bit of a twist.  Play it straight, or with the flip a switch, run your rig with a McIntosh 2300 (or similar) power amp just like Jerry did.  Louis Electric catches the breathtaking tone of an American Legend.  From the first note you will swear there is a presence(Jerry) in the room with you.

This unique Amplifier is housed in a road-ready Hard Truckers Cabinet, complete with removable panels.
