Combo amplifiers have both the amplifier and the speaker(s) in the same enclosure. This makes them very practical as they are easier to transport and take up less space. Combo amplifiers are often also very convenient for studio use. Guitarists like Eric Clapton and Billy Gibbons are famous for using small Fender Champs for their recordings, and they make them sound absolutely huge! Larger combos have proven themselves on stage countless times over the years. The Fender Super Reverb, Vox AC30 and Marshall Bluesbreaker are true classics that are loved among guitarists.

In this category you will find all of our amplifier heads. Heads are the best choice for players who like flexibility. Because the amplifier is in a different enclosure than the speaker(s), amp heads can be combined with different types of speaker cabinets. For example, you could pair up your head with a 1×12 cabinet for a gig at a small bar, and use a 4×12 cab when you have to play on a big stage. Aside from that, a head and cab are the look of rock and roll! Just think of the walls of Marshall stacks that Jimi Hendrix played through!
Speaker cabinets are meant to be combined with amplifier heads. Heads and cabinets allow for more versatility as you can use different amps and speakers. Changing cabinets can change your sound drastically. The amount of speakers the cab houses determines how much sonic space your sound takes up. Another important factor is whether the back of the cabinet is open or closed. Open back cabinets have a more dimensional sound. Closed back cabinets give more sound pressure. When buying a new cabinet, make sure the impedance (ohms) and wattage of the cabinet match your amplifier. If you are in doubt, feel free to contact us for advice.
In this category you will find our acoustic amplifiers. Plugging an acoustic guitar into an electric guitar or bass amplifier will often result in disappointment. Acoustic guitars will often sound dull and lifeless through them. Acoustic amplifiers however are specially tuned for the frequency range of an acoustic guitar.
