Savage Custom Tube Amps

“Made the way they used to.”

My father has a small business making classic style tube amplifiers. He makes each one by hand using old vacuum tubes that he has collected over the years. This past Christmas, I was home and saw the collection of boxes those tubes came in and was really inspired. As I love “found object” design, as well as great “bad” type, I wanted to take a stab at a campaign inspired by these boxes as well as my dad’s “old-fashioned” approach to his amps. These are the first three, and I hope to follow with another three, as he has some opportunity for small space advertising in Rolling Stone magazine. Special thanks to Radovan Subin for his nice pics.
