Frampton News!




Guitar legend Peter Frampton's sought-after Framptone guitar electronics line launches at retail this season with the Framptone Amp Switcher. Resulting from repeated requests by fellow artists--such as the Foo Fighter's Dave Grohl, Art Alexakis from Everclear and Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi--Framptone products are hand-built with an emphasis for extensive road use and sturdy longevity. Framptone Amp Switcher features include:

non-MIDI solution to switching from amplifier to amplifier, allowing guitarists to switch or combine two different amps at the touch of a button.

Ground loop exclusion. Highest quality transformers are used, electronically isolating the ground.

Custom buffer circuit designed to convert the instrument input to a low impedance signal, allowing multiple-amplifier feed without signal loss or degredation.

Soft touch momentary switches for click-less, noise free switching. Phase reversal switch to eliminate any out of phase amps.

Last Amp On feature in LEDs, indicating which amp will be activated when a musician switches from combined amps back to the A or B scenario.

The Framptone Amp Switcher can be purchased at many top music retailers across the country, including Mars Music (nationwide); Plexi Palace (Apple Valley, CA); New York Professional Guitar Center (Poughkeepsie, NY); and Maggio Music (Brooklyn, NY). It can also be purchased by sending a check or money order (made out to "Framptone") for $379.00 plus an additional $10.00 for shipping and handling to:

In addition to the Amp Switcher, musicians will soon be able to purchase the Framptone TalkBox, an accessory which has become synonymous with Frampton's unique sound over the last 25 years. Currently in the manufacturing stages, the prototype has been well received and used extensively by musicians who should know - Peter Frampton, Dave Grohl, and Richie Sambora.

In addition to the technical, high-end Framptone line, the artist has almost completed one of the busiest years of his career. He served as "authenticity advisor" and had a cameo acting role in the critically-aclaimed Cameron Crowe film Almost Famous; just completed his 2000 Tour in support of his latest CD and DVD, Live In Detroit; recorded two songs for the new Disney children's album Tiggermania; and was recently featured in People Magazine. His five solo studio albums from the 1970s were re-released on CD in August

  • Wind of Change
  • Frampton's Camel
  • Somethin's Happening
  • Frampton
  • I'm In You
Most importantly, the classic Frampton Comes Alive! album was re-released on January 16, 2001 just in time for its 25th Anniversary. The album was re-mastered, re-mixed, re-sequenced, and contains additional songs that were recorded at that time. Frampton performed at BB King's Blues Club in New York City on January 18-19, to celebrate the re-release (his first New York City concert in over 5 years!).
