Timeline (by Bruce Zinky)
- I made my first battery powered amp (predecessor to the Smokey amp) around age 11.
- By 1983 I was modifying tube amps, and making new amplifiers out of recycled tube radios, tape machines, and other amplifiers.
- I started Smokey Amplifiers in 1997 after leaving Fender in 1996.
- Because I was known for high end tube amplifiers, we started producing tube amps (as Zinky Electronics, as "Smokey" is a bad name for tube gear) in 1999.
- We began producing Supro guitars and amplifiers in 2004.
