Sunn Amplifiers, are a brand of musical instrument amplifiers.

History

In early 1963, The Kingsmen, a band based in the U.S. state of Oregonmarker, became known for the song "Louie, Louie". After their hit single, The Kingsmen soon embarked on a fifty-state national tour. Because the band was used to playing small hop and school dances, many of the members found themselves ill-equipped with the amplifiers that they were currently using. Bassist Norm Sundholm discovered that his bass amp was not nearly powerful enough to play larger concert halls. Sundholm enlisted the help of his brother Conrad to help solve his problem. By 1964, the Sundholm brothers had designed a high powered concert bass amplifier. By 1965, the demand for Sundholm's amplifiers had increased to the point where the family garage could no longer be used as the manufacturing facility. Thus, the Sunn Musical Equipment Company was founded.

Artists that used Sunn amplifiers include Velvet Underground last era, The Who, The Moody Blues, Cream, Mountain, Steppenwolf, Kiss, Rush, The Melvins, Queen, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Red Fang and Sunn O))).

Sunn was ultimately acquired by Fender, who discontinued production in 2002. Sunn was based in Tualatin, Oregonmarker.
