Guitar Amps Information

Guitar Amps can roughly be split in to two categories; combo amps, which include the amp and speakers within the same cabinet, such as the Peavey Valveking, and separate amp heads with external speaker cabs, such as the Orange Terror series.

Combo amps offer fantastic sound in a highly portable package and often have built in extras such as spring reverb or effects.

Amplifiers constructed of separate cabinets and heads are often favoured by those who want to try out different combinations of set-up to acheive a specific tone.

We always have the best sounding and most popular amps available, including famous amplifiers such as the Vox Valvetronix, Roland Cube and Laney Nexus.

As a general rule, Solid State Amps provide crisp, clear clean tones, that have lots of attack and are responsive to playing. They require less maintenance, and have less parts that are likely to go wrong with them.

Tube Amps are regarded for their exceptional warmth, and fat, thick tone. You can achieve a great natural distortion through a tube amp. From tube amp to tube amp there is a greater variation in sound too.
