Guitar Amplifier Buying Guide
- Stacked amps: Stacked amps have a separate amplifier head and speaker cabinet. Full stacks have two cabinets and an amp head for the ultimate in volume and force; half stacks have one cabinet.
- Combo amps: Combo amplifiers combine the amp head and cabinet within a single unit.
Cabinet descriptions list the number of speakers and their size. A 4x12” cabinet, for example, has four 12-inch speakers. In general, smaller speakers produce better high frequencies and larger one produce better bass tones.
Amps use vacuum tubes, solid-state or digital technologies for sound and power. The technology depends on your sound preference, budget and maintenance requirements. While some consider the tube the king of tone, digital and solid-state amps are generally less expensive and simpler to maintain.
The higher the wattage, the louder the sound. Base the wattage on the intended venue. For example, a 100-watt stack is amazing for Woodstock-like concerts, while a 10-watt combo amp is better for practicing in an apartment.
