Jimmy Page has unveiled Sundragon amp, a collaboration between the Led Zeppelin guitarist, Perry Margouleff and Mitch Colby.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin 1, the amp aims to recreate the sounds Page has used exclusively to create the surrealistic yet beefy sounds on the band's debut album. The amp website also mentions notable recordings such as Joe Cocker's "With a Little Help from My Friends".

Originally, Page started out with a Supro Coronado that was made by a Chicago company called Valco. Page would maximise these tiny amps for recording instead of the usual huge walls of British amps.

In the press release, Page says, “I had been impressed with the forensic analysis both Mitch and Perry had put into the research of the sonic reproduction of the original Supro amp to arrive at the Sundragon”

After an accident where the amp had fallen out of the back of the band's fan during an early pre-Zeppelin tour, he had restored and modified the amp significantly into something unique.

With Page finally sharing the 50-year-old-secret behind his amp, there will be 50 limited edition hand built amps that will be distributed throughout 2019, all signed by Page himself.
