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...

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...

Class B Amplifier

Class B Amplifier advantages   The Class B Amplifier has a significant advantage over their Class A amplifier cousins in that no current flows through the transistors when they are in their quiescent state (i.e., with no input signal). Therefore, the output...
