Launched in July 2014 by François Deschamps, who recently graduated from the SAE Institute in Brussels (as a Sound Engineer), the brand began its activities with the maintenance and repair of audio equipment. The design of guitar/bass cabinets is the second activity of Invaders Amps, but also the customization of these (tolex, grillcloth, choice of speakers …).
Finally, the company’s trademark turned out to be customization. Four years later, after research and preparation in this field, assisted by Pascal Gonda, the first Amp Invaders amp emerged: the 720 Britt with 2 channels Clean and Drive with a power of 20W.
Remaining in the vein of the 2-channel amplifiers, the two companions then launched their model High-Gain in 6L6, the 850 Devil based on American-typed amplifiers very quickly. The variants of this model followed with the 850 Dual Masters and the 950 Bad’As, the latter is designed in EL34 providing even more gain and subtle compression.
All that was missing from the range was clean-typed amps… The 535 BlueGrass (6L6) and 535 BlueLemon (EL34), both in 35W, are designed with an excellent Clean/Crunch base approach, a Plug’N’Play use and an excellent pedal platform.
The demand was growing for an even more dynamic and powerful model, the 535 BlueGrass was upgraded to 50W: the 550 BlueGrass, ideal for a headroom and powerful enough for the amp to become versatile both for guitar and bass players.
The repairs, the custom cabinets and amplifiers’ head are the winning trio for Invaders Amplification!
