The guitar amp is an essential part of playing electric and bass guitar. Designed with the instrument in mind, it delivers the desired frequencies and delivers the desired signal level. If the first amplifiers had only a volume knob, today even the simplest guitar amplifier has a three-band equalizer for controlling frequencies. The more expensive the model, the correspondingly wider the range of amplifier capabilities. Our shop has a guitar amp for every budget and for every purpose!
The first guitar amplifiers began to appear at the beginning of the last century and were used for acoustic guitars with an electromagnetic pickup. With the introduction of the electric guitar, amps became a necessity in series production, and their appearance fostered various sound experiments, which in turn led to the invention of effect pedals. For example, the overdriven sound that a guitarist today receives at the touch of a pedal was originally achieved by playing at the peak power of the amplifier, overloading the speakers. The popularity and high demand for guitar amplification was facilitated by the transition from tubes to transistors. Transistor amplifiers are cheaper, more durable, and more affordable. The pioneers of the electric guitar - Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi, Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore, contributed to the improvement of guitar amplifiers. Based on their preferences and experiments with sound, the developers created and implemented new technologies in the production of equipment.
Transistor amplifiers remain the most popular today. Lamp lamps are chosen by professionals who, moreover, are not confused by the high cost of lamps and the need for their periodic replacement. In addition, digital amplifiers, capable of imitating the sound of both tube and transistor ones, took their place in the market.
One of the classifications of guitar amplification is the purpose: for an acoustic guitar (meaning an electric acoustic guitar with a piezo pickup), for an electric guitar and for a bass guitar. Another classification is the principle of operation (lamp, transistor, digital). Also, guitar equipment is divided into the following types:
