Not many amp builders can say their first prototype was played by a world-famous artist, but that's exactly what happened to Robert Gallien in the late '60s when his model 226A amp was sold to Carlos Santana. Although relatively unknown at the time, Santana quickly rose to fame after he blew audiences away at Woodstock and recorded his first studio album - all on Gallien's 226A. As his products started to gain recognition, Gallien paired up with fellow engineer Richard Krueger and in the early '70s, Gallien-Krueger amps was born. Today, Gallien-Kruger amps is an industry leader in the production of amp heads, cabinets and combo units and their products rock the stage with music greats like Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers fame and Ted Dwane of Mumford and Sons.
