The Ventana Wave Pocket Amp is a compact, portable amplifier crafted in Santa Cruz, California and designed for musicians on the go!

Whether you’re a guitarist, bass player, singer, ukulele player, harmonica virtuoso, violinist, banjo player, or you shred the accordion, the Ventana Wave is perfect for amplifying your sound anytime, anywhere - on your next camping, beach bonfire, surf, or stay-at-home adventure!

Cool Features

Martijn Stiphout Artisan Maker of the Ventana Wave Pocket Amp
  • True Artisanship: Designed by master artisan Martijn Stiphout in Santa Cruz, California, the Ventana Wave is a testament to meticulous artisanship.

  • Reclaimed Brazilian cherry hardwood: The Wave is crafted with exquisite, uniquely grained Brazilian cherry wood reclaimed from new floorboard offcuts - the same wood used in several Ventana surfboards.

  • Adjustable Gain/Amplification: Adjust the volume on your instrument to change the gain to your liking. Lower volume creates a cleaner sound; higher volume produces a more distorted or overdriven punk/metal sound.

  • Durable and wear resistant: Brazilian cherry is among the hardest woods in the world with a Janka hardness rating of 2350 pounds-force. It is resistant to dents and wear and is also antimicrobial and non-toxic.

  • Hand-Assembled and Finished: Each amp is lovingly assembled in our workshop and quality checked before shipment, ensuring you receive nothing but the best. Ventana Waves are lightly finished with Osmo Polyx®-Oil that has a base of natural vegetable oils and waxes.

  • Exacting Specifications: Created individually using a CNC router and laser, every Ventana Wave meets precise standards. 

  • Embedded On/Off Power Switch: Plug in the included cable, and you're ready to play. Unplug the cable, and the amp turns off automatically to conserve the battery. 

  • Custom Speaker Grill: Add an artistic flair to your amp with a speaker grill designed by talented, Atlanta-based line-art illustrator Drew Graves (AKA Werd). Purchase the amp with the matching organic cotton pocket tee and save!

  • 1/4-inch Amp Cable Port: Connect any electric instrument easily with the standard 1/4-inch (6.3mm) cable port.

  • German-made Visaton Speaker: 8 Ohm metal basket speaker with mylar diaphragm for durability - 2-Watt rated power; 3-Watt maximum power

  • Replaceable Battery: Never miss a beat with an easily replaceable standard 9V battery (Duracell® Procell battery included).


Free Bonus Items

  • FREE Custom Engraving: Make it yours with free, custom name or gift message engraving. Or send us a graphic using the upload above, and we can engrave it for you. Text engraving is FREE, graphic engraving is $15.

  • FREE 1/4-inch Amp Cable: Each amp comes with a free 6-foot cable for easy connectivity. Keep it organized with the free VELCRO® brand cable tie.

  • FREE Organic Cotton Cinch Sack: Use the organic cotton cinch sack silkscreened with the Ventana Treefish logo to protect your Wave in style.

  • FREE Ventana Key Chain: This little beauty is made from Ventana Khordz Mugs offcuts and Honduras mahogany from Santa Cruz Guitar Company. It’s a testament to upcycling and a great leash cord if you’re a surfer.

  • FREE Guitar Picks: Strum away with three free picks cut from expired credit cards, hotel key cards, and other sources diverted from the landfill.

  • FREE Speaker Grill and Logo Stickers: We’ll include a 3" sticker that matches the Drew Graves speaker grill and one that sports the Ventana Treefish logo.

      Packs a punch!

      What a fun little amp! Perfect for campfires, on the beach, road trips, busking... all those places you've once said to yourself 'I wish I could plug in right now.' It fits right in my pocket, is even smaller than most phones these days, and is great for when you need a bit of amplification on the go. The fact that they could customize it with my band's logo just made it that much sweeter. Everything Ventana does is classy, and this amp is no exception.

      So glad you like it! Your music is terrific, and we’re glad we could “play” a part!

      A little amp with a big heart

      I got this amp because I wanted to be able to play guitar at the beach and hear it over the sound of waves without actually having to play intentionally loud. The sound quality of this amp is impressive for how little it is, and it carries a crisp tone that sounds vintage at higher volumes. The personalized engraving is a very nice touch. Super stoked on this and highly recommend to anyone looking for something simple, low-cost, and aesthetically pleasing.

      So glad you like it! Thanks for the love and support

      beautiful and fun

      This little amp is a work of art (like all Ventana products) and is great for travel and practice. Nice little clean sound that breaks up as you move up in volume--really fun.

      Glad you like it! We loved making it for you.
