Skip now I guess to the Present…
After all the trial and error
I have finally figured it out
It took 20 – 30 years although now
My most successful idea the
It’s the amplifier riser
and equipment organizer
riser lifts the amp off the ground
Greatly improving the sound
stores your, pics, cords, strings, and things…
ampRiser is an example of
Invention is the mother of nesseity
One day my basement flood and My amplifier was Ruined !!
Along with pedals and other music equipment,
I quickly found out that they make amplifier stands, and most guitar players
place there amp on a chair or makeshift stand to lift it up to improve the sound?
Since I love to work with wood and
Wanted something nicer than a metal chair or meTal stand, sooo….
I made a wooden cabinet the same size
as my amplifier that didn’t get ruined
in the flood, one design change led to another and hence the…
ampRiser was born !!
This invention was my pride and joy
It involves music, woodworking, a little electronics, everything I love !!!
Anyways this product has led Me to a lot of great things and has allowed Me to meet some Great people in the music business!
My highlights would be it brought my family together a little. ..
My mom was my legal assistance

She set up my LLC
and proff read All my copyright materials
My dad gave me My woodworking skills and was my technical assistant

Uploaded to their youtube channel
Led to a lot if connections
The L.A. amp show is where I met
some of the Best people in the
Handmade boutique amplifier business and other professionals

I made a good little profit over the
Years with ampRiser and have gotten to a level where if I want to get into the Big Box stores I need a licensed deal?
So even tho they are still kinda available
and my work is currently in 5 music stores downriver Michigan
I am in the process of working out a deal….
