The Best Amplifiers and Guitar Accessories Revealed By 45 Musicians

1. The features I look for in an AMP:

As far as tone, I want TUBES TUBES TUBES. Features: 2 channels are fine and dedicated EQ knobs (treble, mid, bass). I am not interested in built-in onboard effects (tremolo and reverb ok)

For recording, either combo or head and cab and lower wattage is fine. Always good to have options when recording. For live, I like combo amps with 2×12 speakers and a higher wattage.

Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail
Zvex Wah Probe
