Beginner Tips: The Language Of Guitar Amplifiers


What Does a Guitar Amp Do?

Everyone knows that guitars and amps go together – just like rock & roll and loud! We’ve all seen musicians onstage, with their guitars plugged into amps or stacks of amps. But why did he/she choose that particular amp – and what does an amp do other than make your guitar sound louder?

A guitar amp has two main functions. First, it allows you to “shape” the signal going from your guitar into the amp. Second, it takes that custom-tailored signal and drives it through the power amp, which then boosts the signal level and sends it to the speaker, so you can get face-melting volume (or at least — Read more
