Budda Amplification is an American guitar amplifier and effects pedal manufacturer founded by Jeff Bober and Scott Sier in 1995. The Budda is currently owned and manufactured by Peavey Electronics.

During The Resistance' recording, Matthew Bellamy used a Budda Superdrive 18 Series II head amp. This amplifier can be seen above the Orange Head in the photograph on the right.

The amp has been described as fat-sounding, while still keeping away the muddiness. It contains the jingle of the Vox and the verocity of a Marshall Plexi.
