Modeling Amplifiers for Guitar

Modeling amplifiers look like conventional guitar amplifiers but are primarily designed to emulate the sound of well-known modern and vintage amplification gear. They come in diverse speaker configurations and are able to provide a variety of sound at any...

Hybrid Amplifiers for Guitar

Hybrid amplifiers consist of either of two combinations of tube and solid-state amplification. It may have a tube power amp fed by a solid-state preamp circuit, as in most original MusicMan amplifiers. Or alternatively, a tube preamplifier can feed a solid-state...

Combo Guitar Amplifiers

Combo guitar amplifiers incorporate all components of an amplification chain in a single enclosure. They are different from other “stack” amplifiers in that they’re a self-contained unit designed for portability. You can find them in different sizes,...

Solid-State Guitar Amplifier

Solid-state circuits found in guitar amplifiers are often based on a transistor or semiconductor. These amplifiers are in most cases cheaper to produce and more reliable than tube-based versions. They are much lighter and less fragile than them as well. Solid-state...

Vacuum Tubes Guitar Amplifier

Vacuum tubes (called “valves” in British English) were by far the dominant active electronic components in most instrument amplifier applications until the 1970s when solid-state semiconductors (transistors) started taking over. Transistor amplifiers are...

Amplifier Class XD

The Amplifier Class XD, patented by Cambridge Audio, is based on Crossover Displacement technology. As a new output stage technology, it eliminates crossover distortion up to a certain power level, without any collateral compromises. The term “XD” comes “Crossover...
