About

They Look as Good as They Sound.

The inspiration for Liberty Amps sprouted out of necessity when founder Matt Pusateri was planning a camping trip with fellow guitar pickers and late-night crooners. With the knowledge that his new acoustic bass would get buried in the mix of a typical backwoods hootenanny, he set out to find a battery powered speaker to boost the low-end. After wading through the limited choices of generic black box toys, bright orange suitcases, or poor sounding novelty speakers, he decided his best option was to build his own. It was ugly as hell, made from wood flooring remnants and some hot-wired circuitry, but it delivered ear candy and played all night without a single battery change-out.

Thus, Liberty Amps was formed in South Florida to build wireless bluetooth speakers for musicians, audiophiles and hobbyists craving freedom from plastic black boxes and the electrical grid.

As we grow, Liberty Amps will remain focused on pushing new design ideas, updating circuitry, and developing even more products for audiophiles. We agree that music can look as good as it sounds and will maintain the original concept of portability, hand-made in America.

Wood Sourcing 

In order to be good stewards of our environment and leave a smaller footprint, we use sustainably harvested and/or repurposed wood whenever possible. Our recent Mulberry and Sassafras speakers were milled on a family farm in Ohio. All other lumber is imported and purchased from local suppliers that practice sound forest management and conservation techniques.

Testimonials

My Liberty Amps Bluetooth Speaker is the perfect compliment to our beach houseIt looks great in every room, and is easy to carry to the beach. Whether I'm listening to a book, meditating, or enjoying my music, I'm engulfed in the clear, crisp sounds that surround me. The volume and clarity that this beautiful piece of art produces are just incredible.
Annette | Flagler Beach, FL

At The Looking Glass in historic Waynesville, Ohio, we have had the Liberty Amps on display for customers for over a year. The music most definitely draws people to the display where many linger to listen to the sound. Many comments are made about how much they enjoy listening. We have always played pretty music but with the Liberty Amps the sound is more beautiful and carries through the entire store. Then come the comments about the beautiful hardwoods and the appreciation of the bluetooth. We always mention the ability to pick up your beautiful Amp and go anywhere for at least 30 hours! The Liberty Amps are perfect for The Looking Glass.

I recently purchased a Liberty Amps Bluetooth Speaker for my wife's birthday. We are extremely happy with the product for three reasons: The audio quality is amazing. Our guests could not believe the quality of the tones emanating from such a small device. The wooden cabinet workmanship is outstanding. And finally, the range of the blue tooth connection is far superior to other devices we have owned. I cannot recommend this product highly enough.

Risks and challenges

Because we handcraft every Liberty Amp in-house, we are confident in completing our projects and delivering rewards to our backers.

Our Bluetooth Speakers are fully functional, and we are finalizing production on our guitar amps. As we grow, Liberty Amps will remain focused on pushing new design ideas, updating circuitry, and developing even more products for audiophiles.

The real challenge is a long-term one, promoting our products and competing with industry giants who have unlimited marketing budgets and purchasing power. Without the ability or desire to purchase or assemble parts in huge bulk, our prices will always remain a bit higher than those companies who do. Our smaller marketing budget requires us to spend wisely and rely on our customers for additional/continued sales growth. Also, no two speakers are ever the same because of the custom build and wood used. Especially compared to cheaply made and short-lived plastic speakers, the quality and longevity of our wood and materials make our products worth the investment.

That is our differentiator. We aren’t just looking for “customers”. We are looking for like-minded artists and music lovers who want something unique and special, who want to be part of a movement. We want "Liberty Amps Brand Ambassadors", and we’re willing to do what it takes to create them. Customer satisfaction is paramount, and we 100% stand behind the work that we do. Unlike some of the industry giants, we will always be accessible for feedback and input from the Liberty Amps community and our backers.
