The beginnings of the White Bird Amplification manufacture date back to January 2009, when after graduating from the Polytechnic I began my adventure with the production of tube audio equipment. The history of this activity, however, begins much earlier. In 2001, I became very interested in playing the electric guitar, and consequently I needed an amplifier for it. However, when I was only a dozen or so years old, I could not afford to buy an expensive, good tube amplifier, which I could use to amplify my instrument.
I believe in principle that the necessity is the mother of invention, I decided to learn to build such amplifiers myself. I was fortunate that my father – a tube electronics enthusiast for years from early youth, wanted to help me acquire theoretical and practical knowledge which eventually resulted in the fact that electronics also became my passion.
The road from guitar tube amps to audio equipment was not long. After achieving my goal in the field of various amplifiers for electric guitar, I decided that it is worth going in the direction of designing and constructing devices for music lovers. The experience gained earlier helped implementing this plan and, over time, transform the idea into a professional practice. At the very beginning of the White Bird Amplification, I was mainly involved in the production of headphone tube amplifiers and preamplifiers. At the moment, my company’s offer includes also amplifiers for loudspeakers and preamps with a more complex structure.
In 2016. two partners joined the company – father and son: Janusz and Arek Mateusiak. Janusz has been interested in electronics and the technique of making electrical devices since his school years. Arek is a specialist in the field of marketing, website design / programming. He is also photographer and hobbyist in the field of digital electronics.
The headquarters of White Bird Amplification is located in Poland in the city of Kluczbork in Opole Silesia. Our devices are designed and manufactured from scratch in Poland. This applies to all electronics and enclosures. The production process is 100% handmade and each copy has its own certified documentation and a history of possible modifications or changes of ownership.
The constant search for new solutions results in the appearance of more models of amplifiers so that the customer has the largest selection in terms of the choice of a particular device, but also in terms of customization by configuring his own product in terms of the use of various components or I/O.
In addition to the ambition to produce equipment of the highest quality, we are guided by the principle that the prices of our devices are calculated fairly, i.e. they reflect their real value. Very often, in the world of Hi-End devices, there is a policy that assumes aggressive marketing based on setting prices that are excessive in relation to the actual value of the equipment. We leave such a policy to those who adhere to the principle that price is a commodity. White Bird Amplification guarantees its customers 100% integrity both in terms of the declared quality of their devices and their price.
We plan to meet the expectations of customers all over the world, while maintaining it in the form of a workshop where handicraft is always in the foreground, and the possibility of personal contact with designers is always available.
