Peter L. Jensen dedicated his life to innovation and today’s Jensen® musical instrument speakers continue the essence of that innovation. Peter L. Jensen was born in 1886 in Denmark and came to America in 1909. He was instrumental in the development of the "Magnavox", the first loudspeaker. Magnavox speakers were predominantly used for public address systems and were first used in 1919 to amplify President Woodrow Wilson's speech in San Diego. Peter Jensen later founded Jensen® Radio Manufacturing Company and produced speakers for both military use and radios.

 

In the mid-1940’s Leo Fender developed one of the first guitar amplifiers and chose Jensen® speakers for their excellent tone. Throughout the 1940’s, 1950’s and most of the 1960’s, Fender®, Ampeg®, Gibson® and all the other major amplifier companies used Jensen® musical instrument speakers until Jensen® stopped making them in the late 1960’s.

 

In the late 1990’s, under a licensing agreement, SICA Altoparlanti, an Italian speaker manufacturer, commenced production of the legendary Jensen® speakers. These Jensen® reissues are made to the same specifications as the original Jensen® speakers used by Leo Fender and others.

 

The Jensen® name is synonymous with classic vintage tone, and is the pioneer in modern state-of-the-art speakers today.
