If you have an electric guitar, it is a given
that you are going to need some guitar amps. ‘Amps’
is short for ‘amplifiers’ – electronics and
tubes that bring life to that electric guitar.
Guitar amps are as varied and personal as the actual guitars.
You have to hear the sounds produced by any given amp before you
know if it will suit your purpose. That’s why music stores
are sometimes irritating – just one guitar player plugged
in to an amp in a music store creates quite a ruckus. But with
so many different kinds of amps available, you have to try before
Rock ‘n roll would be nothing without guitar amps. From
the dry, classic sound of Elvis’ guitar to the signature
snarl of Black Sabbath guitars, most of any recognizable guitar
sound is produced from the amp. Amps are equipped with a variety
of knobs used to adjust high, low, and mid-range electric sounds.
