a tribute to
Builder of some of the world's finest guitar amplifiers
January 12, 2002. It is with great sadness that I must post news of the passing of Harry Joyce. Harry fought bravely his bout with cancer, and passed from this world January 11, 2002. He was surrounded by his family when he died. Thanks to David Joyce for news of his uncle's death.
Harry and I spent many hours on the phone over the past few years. I had the pleasure of his visit over three days at the Arlington Guitar show in Texas three years ago. In addition to being a great amp maker, Harry was one of the kindest gentlemen it has been my pleasure to know. I will cherish my memories of and my friendship with Harry Joyce. Thanks, Harry!
