Top 4: Modelling Guitar Amplifiers

Posted on 6th December 2018 by

So you need an amp that sounds great, offers versatility, and isn’t too heavy when you need to move it around? A modelling amp is the answer!

Modelling amplifiers pack in sounds inspired by a host of vintage and modern gear, as well as effects, giving you plenty of options. This is great as a beginner, as you can try out a lot of guitar tones quickly and easily whilst you figure what you really like!

As they use digital circuits rather than the weighty components found in valve amplifiers, modelling amps are much easier to move around and fit in at home. They are also much more reliable, without using delicate analogue technology. There’s a lot of choice around, so we have whittled it down to our Top 4 picks for Christmas…
