Electric Guitar Amps

Guitar Amps - Sound The Business

Guitar amps in the electric guitar can either be transistor-based or tube-based or a combination of the two.

Most amps use tone controls to regulate treble, middle or bass sounds. These controls h...

lp guitarists to ensure that there is no distortion when the sound is amplified.

The guitar amp is available in multiple sizes and power levels, the most popular being the combo or multi-purpose amp. These amps provide power that can be used for a wide range of playing from practice guitar sessions to concerts.

How Loud Do You Want Your Guitar Amp?

Mini amps are small, and ideal for home practice. Relatively inexpensive, they come with a head jack and are ideally suited for the beginner guitarist. However, their size should not be considered a limitation. Even mini amps can produce loud sounds.

The most powerful amplification comes from Amp Stacks. They come in two ranges, the full amp stack and the half amp stack. Full amp stacks have an amplifier head and two large speaker cabinets with four speakers in each cabinet. A half amp stack has a single cabinet with four speakers and an amplifier head.

The amp stacks are particularly popular with rock guitarists, because they can make the sound boom. They are generally used for performances in large rock concerts.

It is essential to take good care of amps, especially tube amps as they are extremely sensitive to temperature and often malfunction in extreme conditions. There is also the danger of an electric shock if the amp is not properly grounded.

Almost all major electric guitar manufacturers like Fender, Martin, Gibson and Taylor supply amps and they can even be fitted to most classical and acoustic guitars.

Adding Zing To The Guitar Sound

Guitar amplifiers are a simple way to make your guitar more audible during a live performance or practice session. If you are on a budget and cannot invest in expensive equipment, an amplifier better known as a guitar amp is wonderful choice. With technological advancements, amplification devices for guitar are now available at affordable prices.

Getting a guitar amplifier can work wonders for a guitarist who does lot of live performances. Advancements in material science, acoustics and amplification devices have worked wonders and a guitarist can now get better amplification for sound of guitar strings with minimal power. The power needed by an amplifier is in a logarithmic relationship with amplification needed.

However, as a guitarist you must employ extra precaution while buying amplifiers for guitars. A good amplifier can produce great sound even with average guitars but substandard amplifiers can make even the best guitar to sound lousy. If you are high on live performances and studio recordings, you should buy a sturdy high-end amplifier for your guitar.

Amplifiers are available for almost all types and makes of Guitars like, Acoustic, Electric, Spanish, Fender, Martin, Gibson, and PRS. The amplifier depends on the Guitar you are using. New people in the trade should seek expert advice before buying an amplifier for Guitars.

Amplifiers for guitars are available in four major variants, Solid-State Analog Amplifiers, Valve or Tube Amplifiers, Modeling or Digital Amplifiers and Hybrid Amplifiers. All these Guitar Amps have their advantages and disadvantages. Selection of an amplifier for guitars also depends on guitarist's personal preferences and playing styles.

Amplifiers - The Sound Of Rock

Amplifiers increase the volume and quality of sound and Marshall is an amplifier brand that stands tall. Already a classic in the amplifying world, Marshall amps help professional and accomplished guitarists achieve a richness of sound not possible with a guitar alone.

It all started with Jim Marshall, creator of the unique brand. Interestingly, Marshall was originally a drummer rather than a guitarist. Marshall later became a businessman and sold guitar and bass products. When customers asked for amplification machines that could produce an edgier sound, Marshall started creating what would be the defining standard for all amps.

The Marshall Amplifier - The Start Of Something Big

Marshall's first amplifier prototype was created in 1962. Demand for this amp eventually grew big, so big in fact that the company had to expand operations and open new amplifier manufacturing facilities.

So what made the amplifier so hot? It was the unique sound produced by this amp by overdriving the valve with a special transformer, which has become a signature feature of Marshall amps.

So astounding was the success of Marshall's amplifier and its effect on rock music that the sound it created then is still the sound of the stereotypical rock tone today.

This tone is achieved with a Marshall stack. The electronic equipment is made of a rectangular 100-watt or more Marshall amplifier stacked on top of two speaker cabinets, each containing four 12-inch speakers.

Their 4x12 amplifier cabinet design, was an original, and would be copied by other amp makers in years to come.

Cranking up this amplification machine produces a buzzing, electric and loud rock sound that would be used by many artists and musicians, among them Pete Townsend and Jimi Hendrix.
