Practice Makes Perfect: Five Amazing Practice Amps
In the all-new September 2014 issue of Guitar World, we round up 17 amazing practice amps that will help you sound better, woodshed longer and become the guitarist you’ve always wanted to be.
In the excerpt below, we focus on five (plus a bonus amp — for a total of six) of the 17 amps. To see all 17, check out the September 2014 issue of Guitar World now. It's available at our online store right here.
Playing live might be the best way to hone your performance skills, but when it comes to technique, you need practice, practice, practice.
If you play an electric guitar, your woodshedding sessions demand an amp that not only reveals the details and nuance of your playing but also sounds great—so great that it makes you want to practice more and become the best guitarist you can.
Of course, it’s even better if it has built-in effects, a tuner, a metronome, and connectivity to the world of digital apps, downloads and MP3 players.
With that in mind, we set out to find the best-sounding and best-outfitted practice amps currently on the market. Over the next pages, you’ll find practice combos and heads that pull double-duty as studio and rehearsal powerhouses and others that offer computer, USB, Bluetooth, iOS and Android connectivity.
Whether you love an all-tube rig, solid-state power, or feature-laden digital/modeling amps, you’re sure to find that one of these tone machines makes practice perfect.
