Our Story 


 Welcome to Big River Hardware, your premier destination for restoring vintage radios, amplifiers, and guitars. With a deep passion for preserving the beauty of antique electronics, we have evolved from a hobbyist's venture into a thriving business. Our commitment to excellence and attention to detail has made us a trusted name in the industry.

At Big River Hardware, we began by restoring antique radios and tube amps as a labor of love. Through this process, we discovered a scarcity of replacement parts, particularly wooden knobs. Existing options in the market fell short of meeting our standards in terms of quality and aesthetics. This realization inspired us to delve into woodworking techniques and explore various types of wood, striving to create superior replacement knobs.

To ensure authenticity and precision in our designs, we extensively researched original production methods and adapted precision lathe techniques. This meticulous approach allowed us to perfect our distinctive BRH designs. Recognizing the demand from fellow vintage radio enthusiasts, we decided to share our parts with others who share our passion for restoration. This marked the inception of our journey as an operating business.

As time went on, our reputation for crafting high-quality parts grew, attracting requests for custom nostalgic pieces for guitars and amplifiers. This enthusiastic response led us to expand our offerings and establish Big River Hardware as a dedicated provider of custom parts for both instruments and radios. Through innovative processes such as carving and laser burning, we are able to create personalized designs that add a unique touch to your cherished musical equipment.

Our commitment to exceptional craftsmanship, attention to detail, and customer satisfaction sets us apart. Whether you are a vintage radio aficionado, a guitar enthusiast, or both, Big River Hardware is here to serve your needs. Join us in celebrating the beauty of classic electronics and experience the artistry and precision of our custom designs.
