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!
