Dan Shugar and Brian Shira Introducing AmpMojo

Dan Shugar

During the early days of the pandemic, I found solace in playing my guitar on my back deck. It was during one of those sessions that a voice called out over the fence, saying, "Hey man, sounds good." Little did I know that this encounter would lead to a remarkable partnership.


I had the incredible fortune of meeting Brian, a gifted guitar player and designer of musical products. It didn't take long for me to realize his exceptional talent. One particular creation of his, the SolDrive, featuring an integrated vacuum tube, blew me away. It was undoubtedly the finest overdrive pedal I had ever come across. In that very moment, the seeds of our AmpMojo partnership were planted.


Together, Brian and I set out to bring our shared passion for music and innovative gear to life. AmpMojo became the vessel through which we could create and offer extraordinary musical products to fellow musicians. That chance encounter over the fence proved to be a catalyst, forever shaping the trajectory of our partnership and the future of AmpMojo.

Dan and I have a mutual passion for vintage tone, craftsmanship, and quality. Combining my pedal and product designs with his expertise in building technology companies that prioritize innovation and exceptional customer service, we founded AmpMojo. As working musicians ourselves, we frequently perform together and with other bands, allowing us to test our new products in real-life performance and studio settings. The response from customers has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are excited about the future of AmpMojo as we continue to serve fellow working musicians.
