The JB-100 is limited to ten amps, each played by Joe at a gig, signed and numbered

North Andover, MA (March 11, 2009) -- Blues-rock guitar virtuoso Joe Bonamassa has teamed up with Carol-Ann Amplifiers on the new JB-100 signature amp. The JB-100 is a 100-watt 6L6-based amp with two channels and a tube FX loop.


Limited to only ten amps over the next 12 months, each JB-100 will be played by Joe at an actual gig. After each show Joe will sign a certificate of authenticity listing where he used the amp and when. Logistics permitting, the actual end user buyer is welcome to see Joe at the show playing through the amp and have him present it to them at the end of the night.

All Carol-Ann dealers can order the JB-100 signature head and the first one is currently at Make'n Music in Chicago. The next amp will be heading out to Eddie’s Guitars in the near future.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
