Best guitar amps

May we present to you a selection of the best guitar amp reviews on SoundReview. If you’re starting out, hitting the big stage or just want a bit of practice, there is an amp waiting for you.

The MicroCube GX is the perfect example of a practice amp suitable for bedroom guitar playing. Since its so small, it becomes very portable and transports well. With this in mind, street performers should be drawn to amps like this as it will not hinder the practically of travelling from place to place. For the purpose of playing in small venues such as pubs, you’re going to want something in-between like the Orange Tiny Terror 15W Tube.

In the event that you like going large, there’s always the option of a cabinet to add to you ‘amp head’ of choice. This can leave you with a powerful combination, giving the desired effect for bigger audiences. For larger stages, well a setup like the Marshall 2555X will give plenty of volume to cut through to the back of the room. Of course it all depends on the PA system for larger gigs, at that point the amp is just for the sound.

Have a read through and see if you can find the best guitar amp for you!
