Once you buy that first electric guitar, you also require an amplifier to go with it. It is not always an easy decision.
If you are stuck for money, and you are not a musician, then sometimes the price is going to make it easier for you. If that does not help, this article will set out a few things you can worry about when determining which wall of speakers will make your guitar scream.
The main consideration when buying something is the quality. The Americans always want the best for the capital, including myself.
Usually, the best way to get more for your buck when buying amps is to get a used amp. A great used amp is going to cost the same as an Average amp at a new market.
There are a lot of ways to get a used amp. Check with your friends, restaurants, eBay’s, or everywhere. There are always musicians and gear-head amps and gears to use a 4-ohm speaker with an 8-ohm amp.
Is it tubes?
Wire pickups are what all the great guitar players are using. Tubes are thin glass tubes that serve to control the sound of the amps.
It is old technology, but in the world of amplifiers, it is also the only way to get the best sound out of a speaker.
Since they are the best, they are coming at the best price, for whoever makes them that is … Tube amps sound fantastic, but they are a bit costlier than their solid state counterparts.
The more speakers you have, the sounder and air you can drive with your system. There are a number of different a/v receivers and amp section to pick from and suit.
If you get a combo amp that has speakers and an amp all in one unit, then you will not have to think about your amp being powered by speakers, but if you get a header and a speaker cabinet configuration, you will want to pay close attention to the ohms and wattage.
Ohms & Watts
Ohms is a measure of how hard it is to drive a speaker. Bigger speakers are more difficult to push and will have more ohms or resistance. In guitar settings, the ohms are normally either 4 or 8 and sometimes 2 or 16.
The amount of power that is required to drive speakers is called watts. The more watts, the more power you can use to move the speakers.
However, if the amp is rated at 350 watts at 4 ohms, it will be significantly lower at 8 ohms. Make sure you test out the equipment you are purchasing to make it compatible, or do it yourself.
