Amplifiers for Beginner Guitarists
If you’ve purchased an electric guitar you will need an amplifier. What are the keys that the beginner guitarist should consider when purchasing an amp?
First of all, you should have a budget in mind and stick to it. Don’t be tempted to spend money for extra features that you may not use. It’s best to keep it simple. As you gain some experience with sounds, you will know which effects you like. Effects are devices that modify the tone, pitch or sound of an electric guitar. Most beginner guitarists usually choose between clean sound or distortion. This is standard on even a basic amplifier.
It’s a good idea to take your newly purchased guitar with you when you go shopping for your amp. Different guitars won’t sound the same in each amplifier. Try out several amps in your price range and choose the one that sounds good to you. Read more: Amplifiers for Beginners (Comments & Reviews)
