Magnatone Croc Collection


Magnatone Introduces the Croc Collection

Master Collection amps with a unique, proprietary covering in limited quantities

St. Louis, MO – April 5, 2023 – (GUITARpr) – Magnatone has just introduced its unique Croc Collection. The company is offering its highly acclaimed Master Collection amplifiers specially covered with a proprietary, 100% cotton textile fabric made exclusively for Magnatone in the USA with an amazing new look.

Using a multi-step manufacturing process, the textile begins with a silver base coat and is then embossed with a Croc impression using black dye to create the pattern. Next, a custom-colored pigment is painstakingly hand applied to each cabinet, allowing the silver base color to blend with the pigment to create a one-of-a-kind luxurious finish.

To complete the process, nitrocellulose lacquer is applied to seal each cabinet resulting in a patina that will look even better as it ages. However, only a limited number of these standout amps will be available. Magnatone has secured a specific quantity of this Croc material and will offer this genuinely stunning product only while supplies last.

With truly superb craftsmanship applied from start to finish, the Croc Collection is currently available in Silver/Gold, Silver/Blue, Silver/Red, Silver/Purple

According to Magnatone General Manager, Rod Washburn, “We’ve always offered an array of custom options, but our Croc Collection takes that idea to a new level in a very unique way.”

The Magnatone Croc Collection is available at authorized dealers only. More information is available at
