Really, tak banyak yg buleh cite pasal amp ni unless you are a stage performer. Only these people know more about amps and loudspeaker systems. Actually what I was referring as amps is really the loudspeaker units. But since the term amps has been used by all guitarists to refer to their loudspeakers, I thought I’m gonna use it too..
Why they call the unit as amps is because the amplifier and loudspeaker are combined in a single unit. In the case of the Marshall amp in the picture, the amplifier is the yellow/gold-coloured section at the top and the loudspeaker is the black-coloured square section below it.
But on stage, or in the recording studio, the amplifier is separate from the loudspeakers, and they are joined by cables. The separate amplifier (sometimes power amplifier) is called an amplifier head and is commonly placed on top of one or more loudspeaker enclosures, the amplifier head and loudspeaker enclosures together forming an amplifier stack.
I’m not really sure which is the best. Again it depends on your taste of music. I’ve tried Marshall before, a standard MG, and I thought it sounded clear on clean effect. But on distortion it kinda sounded as though the overdrive is not enough. Well I guess for heavy metals you need a more expensive Marshall amps, maybe TSL or DSL series. Suitable for Rock though. If you fancy Bryan Adams kinda rock, the cheaper MG series might be the one for you.
Peavey though, is my favourite. I’ve tried Agus’s Peavey, and last year he sold to me his Transtube Peavey (yeap.. he had two!). But man oo man! I gotta say I love the sound! Standard set up, no complicated gain setting what-so-ever, and it sounded very heavy! I totally recommend Peavey if anyone ask me.
Others? Umm.. don’t know.. I think it’s for you to find out and for you to know.. I got my Peavey, and that’s enough for me.. muahahahaha!
Till Then.. ROCK ON!!
