    Interested in working for Headstock Group? Here are a few words from some of the Headstock Team

    • Adrian Webb

      In September 2022 I celebrate 40 years of employment with Laney/Headstock. I completed my 1st year City & Guilds for Carpentry at West Bromwich College way back in 1982. I was interviewed by Lyndon Laney for a cabinet maker role and Lyndon suggested I could have a bright future with the Company, and he certainly kept this promise: My position with Laney matured very rapidly, as did the growth of the business, and I became Mechanical Production Manager.

      Almost 20 years ago we purchased a design-built distribution centre for Headstock Group suitable for our distribution business growth and I became Warehouse Manager for the site. Where’s the time gone?

      I met and married my wife Michele in 1985 at Laney and this year we celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. What a fabulous life I’m living!

    • Duncan Boniface

      Combining my passions for music, engineering, and live events, I gained a degree in Engineering Acoustics from the renowned Institute of Sound and Vibration Research at Southampton University, whilst playing guitar (badly!) and working at as many gigs as I could. After graduation I began a career in loudspeaker design, specialising in musical instrument speakers, before becoming the R&D Manager for a British MI company. I joined Laney / HH early in 2009 and now use my experience in design, manufacturing, acoustics, live sound, and relationships to support our product development, our customers and of course our manufacturing of world class products, whether in our own West Midlands facility or overseas with our partners. I still play guitar badly!

    • Richard Thompson

      I’ve always enjoyed engineering and electronics from an early age, and made my first amplifier when I was around 15 years old with hand drawn, and etched PCBs

      I fell into my dream job working for Headstock where I’m able to directly push our ideas into reality, making great products for everyone. I’ve been here for 28 years, currently running the R&D Department for our Laney and HH brands.

    • Lee Wrathe

      Joining Headstock unified my passion for music, with the many and varied skillsets picked up from a diverse career in Law Enforcement (and a stint in Music Retail). It’s a fun and supportive environment where hard work and good ideas are recognised and celebrated. It’s certainly an organisation that welcomes fresh perspectives and experience and I have been fortunate enough to be able to develop, combine and refine my own skills to contribute to Headstock’s continuing success. I am proud to work for our vibrant and exciting brands and I feel very fortunate to work alongside a great team. Even on the most challenging days, I feel valued and supported. It’s an absolute pleasure to be part of this awesome family and the best career move I’ve ever made.

    • Luke Rickett

      After working for 25 years in MI Retail Management, I joined the Headstock team in late 2019.

      I’m a guitarist and bass player, having been a massive fan, and player, of Laney Amps and Ibanez guitars since the 90’s.

      As the Guitar & Backline Key Account Manager for the UK & ROI, it is my job to work with top retailers, ensuring sales of product, quality of service and training is provided for the end user. I also work closely with our Purchaser, AR Manager and Marketing Director, who help support the service we can provide to our customers.

      The Headstock team are dedicated and passionate, providing years of experience and expertise in our industry, I couldn’t ask for better support. Working for a company with such a rich heritage in amplification and music history is simply amazing! I’m very lucky to have been able to turn my lifelong passion for music, guitars, and amplifiers into my day job.

      Headstock, are a company whose products are conceived, designed, and built by musicians for musicians. As a musician, who can ask for more than that?

    • Roger Hickman

      I’ve worked at Headstock for quite a while, originally starting way back in 1994 as a storeman, carrying metalwork, transformers, and other components downstairs to the factory, then back up as fully built amplifiers ready to be packed & shipped out. Since then, I’ve worked as an electronic & audio test engineer for our HH mixer product line, and sales & technical support for our Laney products before finally settling in the IT department as application developer in 2008, and then as IT Manager for the last few years. My role here at Headstock combines two of my greatest passions – music & computers! What could be better?
