Jess Oliver - "The Godfather of Bass Amplification" (1926-2011)

Jess Oliver (born Oliver Jespersen) was the creative genius responsible for many of the classic AmpegTM amplifier designs of the sixties, the most notable being the ground-breaking B15N Portaflex bass amplifier.  Jess left the company in 1966 and formed Oliver Sound Company.  Jess ceased production of his own line of sound equipment in the 70's, but continued to operate his repair business, under the Oliver Sound Co. name, for more than 30 years.
