The Legend Lives:
Strauss valve amplification represents a slice of Australian Rock history.
The story begins in the early sixties when John Woodhead & Gary Nessel came together to form the Strauss Company in Melbourne, Australia.
Production began in 62, with a variety of power amps and cabinets becoming available to the local market.
Strauss can be seen on stage at many major music events across the country, such as Sunbury Rock Festival - to Australia what Woodstock was to America.
Billy Thorpe used the ‘thrust’ of the 300w Warrior amp to send the message that he was the loudest in the land….by far.
Today, Strauss amplifiers are distributed exclusively by Jade Australia.
