About Guitar Amps

Guitar Amps are, after the guitar itself, the biggest factor to consider when creating your electric guitar sound. Amplifiers play a huge part - some would say the biggest part - in the production of tone and there are a vast array of electric guitar amp makes, models and variations on offer to get you the sound you dream of. There are many types of guitar amplifier to choose from based on your taste and needs.

There are valve amps (also known as tube amps to our American cousins). They have a rich tone and are capable of being ‘overdriven’.

Solid state amps are based on circuit boards rather than valves. They are much lighter and can be played more comfortably at bedroom levels making them a popular practice amp choice for home use. These are also a good choice for a clear clean tone when you need more volume thanks to the high headroom. They also generally require less maintenance than a valve amp.

Modelling amps rely on sophisticated digital technology to replicate old valve amps and effects. They are made by many popular brands and now play a huge part in producing the ideal tone for many players. They are popular with guitar players seeking a new guitar amp for studio situations and live work. They also often include additional digital effects.

Practice amps are smaller and perfect for home use. They are usually solid state, but there are a few small valve amps available, so if you're sat at home and want a chilled out jam session, a practice amp is ideal for you. Most have two channels so you can achieve a clean tone and an overdrive sound, with some also containing built in effects such as spring reverb.

Another distinguishing feature between guitar amps is whether they are a ‘combo’ or a ‘head’. Combo amps tend to be more popular these days because they include both the amplifier and the speaker in one housing, making them much more compact. An amp head is just the amplifier on its own, consisting of a pre amp and power amp section. You need both an amplifier head and a speaker cabinet to complete the setup.

Why Do I Need a Guitar Amp?

  • Inspire yourself with new sounds
  • Hear your playing in greater detail
  • Great for gigging, recording, or practicing

Frequently Asked Questions about Guitar Amps

Question: Do I need an amp for my guitar?
While it won't stop you from playing your guitar, having an amplifier will certainly help you enjoy your guitar playing experience even more!
Question: How expensive is a good guitar amp?
It doesn't have to be expensive! A good amplifier can be purchased these days at prices under £100.
Question: What type of amp is best for electric guitar?
Valve or tube amps are the classic choice for many players but solid state amps and modelling amps deliver tones that are often indistinguishable from valves!
Question: What are ‘clean’ amps and ‘dirty’ amps?
A defining feature of many genres of guitar playing is how much ‘overdrive’ or ‘distortion’ the amp is producing. Genres like funk, soul and country tend not to use any overdrive - we call this a ‘clean’ tone. Genres like rock, metal and blues tend to require a lot of overdrive - we call this a ‘dirty’ tone. Many electric guitar amps have two or more channels so that you can have both!
Question: I’m a beginner, which guitar amplifier is right for me?
We think solid state amps are much more fun for beginners. It’s exciting to have a broad palette of tones and effects to play with to try and emulate as many iconic guitar sounds as possible. It’s a bit like having a hundred TV channels, after a while you’ll realise you only watch two or three: this is the right time to think about getting a valve amp and committing to one particular sound.
Question: What does ‘headroom’ mean?
‘Headroom’ is how loud your amp can go before overdriving. High-powered amps tend to have more headroom than low powered amps, meaning they can be loud and clean at the same time.
Question: Can I use headphones?
You can use headphones with solid state amps but rarely with valve amps.
Question: What is a good size guitar amp for home use?
Up to around 20 Watts is more than enough power for home use. Modern amplifiers come at low wattages and include headphone outputs to let you get the most out of your amp at low volumes.
Question: What does ‘high gain’ mean?
The amount of overdrive an amp can produce is known as gain. ‘High gain’ guitar amplifiers are commonly used in metal to produce that heavy, distorted sound.
