Steven Sloane, Amp Designer and Manufacturer
Steven Sloane is the creator of Sloane Amplification. Sloane has always had passion for music, audio, and electronics. He grew up listening to the rock, metal, and pop music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. He always strived to have great sounding car and home audio. In the early 1980s, Sloane’s passion for music motivated him to learn how play guitar and bass. Living in the Cleveland Ohio area, Sloane attended many concerts as a member of the Belkin’s Concert Club and visited many of area clubs to hear local bands. Over the years, the desire to play music shifted to a greater interest in developing audio, sound, and tone.
By the early 2000s with the proliferation of the Internet and the wealth of information and resources available, Sloane began to mod and build pedals and amps. After several years of research and building several amp prototypes with enthusiastic responses from many guitar players, Sloane began to offer his amps to the public.
