When we were looking for inspiration to name our three amp models, Fat Tone Amps endorser Eddie Martin reminded us that Little Walter, the father of the modern amplified harp sound, created his style and tone to emulate the bebop sax players that he so admired. So it’s fitting that we have chosen to name our amps after three of the greatest sax players of that era.
Our flagship single-ten model is named after Coleman “Hawk” Hawkins.
Our single-twelve model is named after Lester Willis “Prez” Young.
Our twin-ten model is named after Charlie “Bird” Parker
We’ve chosen the names but the choice of circuit configuration including pre-amp, tone stack, speaker model and cab finish, is still up to you in consultation with us during your workshop visit where you’ll find your tone.

I found the holy grail at Fat Tone Amps - my unique sound understood and developed with this great team.
When you work with Fat Tone Amps you are working with fellow professionals... it is an absolute joy to take the journey to that perfect sound together!
Totally blown away by my new harp amp. Still playing with it, but whatever I do the sound is awesome, as it should be because it was built specifically for me after an afternoon of consultation by the makers, Fat Tone Amps.
