There is a lot to learn when it comes to all the equipment and techniques out there to get that perfect amplified sound for your guitar.

Electric guitar amplifiers work by converting the signal from your guitar into a signal that can be amplified and sent to a speaker. To do this there are three main components – the preamp, the power amplifier, and the speaker. You can buy these components separately, in different configurations, or you can buy a combination with everything you need in it. It all depends on the sound and power you are going for.

There are a lot of choices for electric guitar amps and the better informed you are, the more likely you are to purchase the right one for your needs. There is a very different setup required if you are just using an amplifier to practice in your own room or with headphones, or for playing in different sized venues.

Take a look around to understand the components required to amplify your electric guitar.
