Buying an amp – my guide!

Today I finished my article on buying an amp.  Actually, it’s a series of pages that go into different aspects that I think people should consider when buying an amp.  It’s a complex decision with a broad range of products on the market, and it’s easy to buy something that doesn’t really meet your needs.

Take a look at my article and hopefully I raise a few issues that you might not have thought of.  It starts with an overview which describes what I think are the three main questions that underlie the choice of an amplifier.

This article focuses mainly on buying a new amp for an electric guitar.  I touch on related subjects like vintage amps or acoustic amps, and many of the issues are the same, but they aren’t the main focus.

I hope you enjoy the article and find it useful!

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
