The guitar amplifiers also known as guitar amps are electronic equipment made to change the signal of the acoustic or electric guitars to become louder so they’ll produce sound via loudspeakers and adjust the tone by placing emphasis or reducing emphasis on particular wavelengths and appending electronic effects. As a guitar player, make sure you learn about the guitar amps subject in order to understand amplifiers.

The amplifiers cover a preamplifier phase, that intensifies the signal’s voltage coming from the guitar. Another phase isthe power amplifier section that distributes a higher current to the speaker to create sound. The preamplifier stage may also contain electronic effects like chorus, distortion, or reverb and additional controls like a graphic equalizer. Certain amplifiers use vacuum tubes, or transistors known as solid state devices, or a combination of both.


There are two distinctive guitar amplifier configurations. The first one is the combination amplifiers, that combine an amplifier and one, two, or even four speakers, placed in a wood cabinet. The second one if the standalone amplifier also called the amp head or head, that does not include a speaker. Different amps for guitars are priced depending on their quality. Low- powered, small practice amps, designed for beginners, can be purchased for less than$ 50, while expensive boutique amps, which are custom- designed and made for expert musicians could cost around several thousands of dollars.

Once studying the guitar amps niche, you should not neglect to look at its history. The first electric amps were not created in combination with electric guitars. The earliest equipment came in the early 1930s when the advent of rectifier tubes in addition to electrolytic capacitors permitted the production of cost- effective built- in power supplies, which could be plugged into wall sockets as an alternative intended for large multiple battery packs. While amps of guitars from the start have been used to amplify the acoustic guitars, in the early 1930s to 1940s, during which the craze for Hawaiian music is happening, the electronic amplification became very popular.


Sequels are a tricky proposition for most filmmakers. Often, whatever magic existed in the first film is lost by the time the second hits the screen. This is not the case with The Devil’s Rejects, a follow-up to the 2003 low-budget House of 1000 Corpses. Instead of simply regurgitating his first film, director Rob Zombie (of White Zombie fame) takes the legend of the Firefly clan in a whole new direction, and, in the process, he turns out a film which is actually superior to the original.

And in case you missed it, here’s a quick summary of House of 1000 Corpses: Four teens stop off at the clown-faced Captain Spaulding’s gas station and museum of terror. They become fascinated with the local legend of Dr. Satan and set out to find the tree from which he was hung, but they quickly run afoul of the insane Firefly family. After that, it’s not a case of will they die, but rather how they’ll die.


The first film was more of a monster movie with the strange Dr. Satan and his hoard of traumatized zombies, not to mention an albino Otis, subterranean caverns, and satanic Halloween ceremonies. For the sequel, Zombie sets much of the film in the light of day and transforms it into something closer resembling an on-the-road crime movie. Think Natural Born Killers but with more madmen to choose from (and that’s saying something). Dr. Satan is gone from the film, and Otis is strangely no longer an albino. This time our killers are more sadist and less supernatural.

But don’t think for a moment that this franchise has lost its bite. It’s every bit as horrifying as the original, mainly due to the unsettling events which occur when Otis and Baby run across the members of the musical act Banjo and Sullivan at an out-of-the-way motel. If watching Three’s Company vet Priscilla Barnes get raped with a pistol or Eastwood favorite Geoffrey Lewis get beaten to a bloody pulp doesn’t bother you, then you’re obviously made of sterner stuff than the majority of the American viewing audience. This is not a film for the squeamish, as evidenced by the fact that many theaters simply refused to show the movie. Of course, the fact that they managed to work in the F-word over 500 times in 100 minutes probably didn’t help their cause either.
