Welcome to our Guitar Amp Heads Online Advisor.

Though combo amps are highly convenient in many respects, and recent developments in the digital domain have attracted a great deal of interest, the stack - the combination of a separate amplifier or ‘head’, and speaker cabinet or ‘cab’ - remains a vital tool for most serious players. Though transistor-based guitar heads do exist, the market remains dominated by the valve technology that has played such a crucial role in shaping the rock guitar sounds of the past forty years.
